Manuel Charr, the WBA regular heavyweight champion, has no interest in fighting Dillian Whyte, but Denis Lebedev and Lawrence Okolie are happy to meet at cruiserweight

DILLIAN WHYTE is an irrelevant contender in the heavyweight division and shouldn’t be described as a sportsman or a challenge.

That’s the view of WBA regular heavyweight champion Manuel Charr, who says a fight with Whyte is of no interest to him either in the short or long term.

Whyte, of course, is on the hunt for an opponent having snubbed a deal to fight Anthony Joshua and having then been snubbed by the WBC and leapfrogged by Dominic Breazeale in the race for a shot against champion Deontay Wilder.
