I am on the Dillian Whyte bandwagon

I agree but all these guys are turning down fights, Ortiz with Joshua, Joshua with Wilder, Pulev pulled out of fight with Joshua aswell.
Whyte has come out and said he will fight anyone though and people repeat that bullshit in interviews and on forums. He’s clearly not willing to take fights that don’t suit him, I think Rivas might bite him in the arse though.

I like Dillian but it's a hell of a lot easier to fight anyone and everyone when you've lost your zero. Instead of building yourself as the unbeatable man, you market yourself as the man that will take anyone on. That's why all the top heavyweights bar the big 3 are all facing off with each other in the hope of a big pay day against the top men in the division.

Dillian is portraying himself as the only man in the division that will take anyone on because of his record and his loud mouth on camera but we know he has turned down fights previously and somehow he's managed to elevate himself up to the top 3 heavyweights, and made it seem there's a big 4 in the division rather than a big 3 and along with Eddie putting him on ppv, it has clouded his judgement and overinflated his own worth.
Exactly this, it’s for this reason I see him getting exposed as soon as he’s in with a live body.

Who doesn't come out and say they will fight everyone, and nobody ever has.

yeah it makes the turning down 4m or whatever to face aj really confusing. i genuinely think that usyk beats aj and just about any top guy could beat wilder or whyte on their day. the way these guys are gambling these huge paydays on the basis that no one else can beat them is baffling.

it wouldnt suprise me one bit if wilder and whyte lost their next fight and aj loses against usyk (rumored to be next after ruiz). none of them are generational stand out talents, that title goes to the one true king.

Would be extremely amusing if Rivas KOs Whyte.

What would he bitch about then?

"Dillian Whyte bandwagon" is good but doesn't feature enough alliteration for me to get truly onboard.

If it was "Dillians Dacia of Destiny" then I'd give it my full support.

WBC now attempting to put another hurdle in the way of Dillian Whyte fighting Wilder. Why should he have to fight Tyson Fury first?

He has turned down fights with Ortiz, Pulev and Joshua more recently. Where this notion that he is willing to fight anyone came from I will never know.
That doesn't really tell the whole story.

Why woukd he take ortiz or Povetkin when he was being told he was going to get Wilder by Hearn?

The reason he turned Joshua down was because he felt he was worth being paid more, that's entirely up to him... When hes retired the fans ain't gonna have a whip round to pay his mortgage.

He ducked AJ because there’s no PPV fights after that for him. He’s milking popularity now and can hide behind the excuses WBC are mistreating him and AJ is lowballing him. Both bullshit excuses.

No they won't but he's not worth what he's asking and eventually he's going to get knocked out, he should be taking what he can before that happens.
