David Haye says Dillian Whyte has to prove he’s worthy of Joshua’s rematch



David Haye has issued a warning to Dillian Whyte ahead of his return game against Jermaine Franklin this weekend, telling him the pressure is on to perform well at Wembley Arena to secure a big fight with Anthony. Joshua next year.

Haye told Metro that a conventional point win wouldn’t be enough for the now 35-year-old, prompting him to return to the ring after a devastating knockout defeat to Tyson Fury in April of this year.

However, ‘The Hayemaker’ admits the American is an unknown number and he could be ready to shock the world this Saturday night.

“Earn a point against Franklin at home, it’s not the performance we need to see, it’s not the performance the Whyte team needs.”

‘They need a definitive conclusion, a “I’m back” win. They need to get over the Tyson Fury defeat and prove they’re ready to take on Anthony Joshua and give us the rematch we want.”

“Dillian is the most loved one ever. But that’s the unknown element of an undefeated fighter.”

“There is something about someone who has never lost or tasted defeat as a professional boxer. It gives them that X-factor. We don’t know what he had. His team could have been waiting for this one competitor to unleash a world-class fighter.”

The battle represents a pivotal moment in ‘s career Whyte, with a blockbuster rematch with old nemesis Anthony Joshua said to be in the works if he gets past Franklin unscathed.

The American tennis player entered the competition with an impeccable record of 21-0 with 14 victories in stoppage time. However, there are very few recognizable names in his track record so many pundits are having a hard time judging what level he really is at.

Whyte enters the match as a significant favorite as a bettor, although a defeat would be catastrophic at this stage of his career and a defeat that many in the sport feel he has. He won’t be able to come back.
