“They need to combat to see who’s one of the best. Which to look at is a no brainer.
“Who desires to look at Dereck Chisora, who has gained one significant combat in his profession with a bingo punch in opposition to Carlos Takam, vs Dillian Whyte, who has already been knocked out by Anthony Joshua?
“It’s blatant recycling. They’re doing the identical with Kell Brook and Amir Khan.
“We’re delivering one of the best versus one of the best. That is correct pay-per-view fare.”

He stated: “It’s silly. Nobody wins. It’s inconceivable for anybody to be a winner out of this.
“These are hypothetical numbers however say there’s half 1,000,000 followers who’re going to look at it.
“If 250,000 watch one and 250,000 watch the opposite, they ain’t going to have the ability to afford to look at each, then we’ve each misplaced 250,000 punters.
“It’s silly. In the event that they had been already working on that day, I’d by no means have run on that day. We aren’t the reason for this.
“It’s disrespectful to the followers. For those who had any feeling concerning the sport, you wouldn’t do that. It’s mindless.”
Warren joked he might hit again by internet hosting Fury vs Wilder II on April 13, the identical evening Joshua has Wembley booked for his subsequent bout.
However he was critical when he stated we might count on to listen to massive information on the WBC world title rematch between the pair very quickly.
