Whyte trashes Manuel Charr for not agreeing to fight him
By Scott Gilfoid: Dillian Whyte is an unhappy camper after hearing the news that WBA ‘regular’ heavyweight champion Manuel Charr isn’t interested in fighting him, and sees him as “irrelevant.” Whyte’s management team made an offer to Charr (31-4, 17 KOs) for a fight, but he’s not shown interest in taking the fight with him.
As one would expect, Whyte (25-1, 18 KOs) isn’t happy that he’s hit another dead end when it comes to him getting at a world title.
Whyte rejected a £4m offer to fight IBF/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua. Whyte could be the mandatory to Joshua if he’d agreed to fight Kubrat Pulev in an IBF title eliminator. The World Boxing Council wanted Whyte to fight Luis “King Kong” Ortiz in an eliminator to get a shot at WBC champion Deontay Wilder, but Dillian chose not to take that option either.
Whyte, 30, says he’ll be back inside the ring on July 13 against an opponent still to be determined. He says they have a number of fighters that they’re picking from in hopes of getting one of them to agree to face him, but a lot of them don’t want to. Whyte says they price themselves out.
“Manuel Charr said he’s not interested in fighting me because I’m ‘irrelevant’ but the guy is a just a media whore. He hasn’t even got a proper belt,” Whyte said in his column at Talksport.com.
