Whyte claims he's received 'utterly ridiculous' offer to meet Joshua

Dillian Whyte celebrates after knocking out Derek Chisora in the 11th round of their rematch in December

Dillian Whyte claims he has been offered a fight with Anthony Joshua at Wembley Stadium on April 13.

The heavyweight contender from Brixton has emerged as the front runner to be AJ's next opponent despite fans calling for the unification fight with WBC champion Deontay Wilder.

On the eve of the British journalist Steve Bansi said that 42-year-old Klitschko plans to resume his career, and his first fight will take place in April 2019 in London at Wembley stadium.

Whyte knocked out Derek Chisora in December past year to position himself for a rematch against his long-standing rival after the champion's failure to advance talks with American Wilder.

And talking to talkSPORT, Whyte confirmed that Joshua's camp has made him an offer, but described the offer as "utterly ridiculous", with "The Body Snatcher" believing Joshua doesn't want to fight him in April.

"It is a ridiculous offer, they're not serious about the fight, I don't think they want the fight, I think they just made an offer to cover ground". It's silly; I'm a pay per view fighter, I've built myself up. "He doesn't like body punches as well, I know that from sparring with him". On Friday morning he called out Anthony Joshua, he then admitted he would be keen to fight Wladimir Klitschko if he were to come out of retirement.

He even used former foe Parker's name to make his case, telling talkSPORT that he "brings more to the table than what even Joseph Parker brings, who was a world champion [when he fought Joshua]".

"Apart from me, Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder you can't sell out Wembley", Whyte continued, "So let's be realistic". Whyte might be overestimating his ability to knock him out.

Anthony Joshua now holds four of the heavyweight belts but has been accused of ducking his rivals. Big Baby, who is his stablemate at Matchroom, could land a fight with Joshua later in the year as the champion looks to make it in the US. It's way less than what I made against Chisora basically. There's middle ground, there's okay ground and there's way, way, way off. "I trained alongside him, I sparred him for years and I know what he's like, I'd knock him out".
