He faces the former WBO heavyweight champion at London's O2 on 28 July.

Whyte was hoping to fight Bulgarian Kubret Pulev in an IBF eliminator to find their No 1 behind champion Anthony Joshua but after losing the purse bid it seems Hearn isn't so keen for his man to fight for a comparatively small monetary reward in Pulev's backyard.

"I was expecting from Dillian Whyte and his team to run away from the fight, but I didn't expect from them to be such bullshit artists", Pulev said on his official website http://kubratpulev.com on Friday.

"I'm looking forward to getting back to training and burning off the pies I ate in New Zealand".

"I'm here to fight, I want to fight, give the fans big fights, this is a great fight, Joseph Parker will be hungry, motivated".

The aggressive Whyte, who was stopped by Joshua in December 2015 in a far more bruising fight, believes it is something he will regret.

"The whole time Hearn kept talking in circles about negotiations and how they are still trying to bring me to UK".

NASA robot detects complex organic matter on Mars in 'significant breakthrough'
Water-rock chemistry might have generated the methane, but scientists can not rule out the possibility of biological origins. EDT today, and while NASA obviously hasn't revealed exactly what it has in store, there's a few things we do know.

Speaking via press release, Whyte and Parker are both confident in claiming the win and catapulting their themselves back into contention for a rematch with Anthony Joshua.

"We've both been in with AJ".

But in dismissing suggestions the Jennings fight in Atlantic City on August 18 was a done deal, Parker's promoter David Higgins insisted "we have other real options on the table". I think that this is the one. That pretty much speaks for itself.

"I'm really happy with how things have things have worked out". However, the Whyte fight is a great result for Parker, who was desperate for a high-profile, credible, opponent after his disappointing 12-round defeat to Joshua.

That turns Whyte's attention to the WBC where an eliminator with big-hitting Cuban veteran Luis Ortiz is a fight that would pack monetary punch and see the victor in line to challenge Joshua who is also that organisation's champion.

Dillian Whyte has positioned himself well in the rankings so one could view this as a potentially risky fight for him considering he's so close to a title shot. "But, hey, if Hearn is misleading you somehow, let me tell you personally - I'm here and ready to beat your delusional ass back to reality".
