CHARLES MARTIN has mocked Dillian Whyte after the boxer ended his interest in fighting the American.

Whyte, 33, had been tipped to fight Martin in America by his own promoter Eddie Hearn.

Eddie Hearn had initially planned for Whyte to fight Martin in the USA

In July Hearn said: “We’re also talking to [manager] Luis DeCubas about… a Charles Martin fight for Dillian Whyte, which could come after his August/September fight.”

But according to Sky Sports, the Brixton boxer’s fights will take place in the UK.

That has sparked the verbal attack from Martin, 35, who did not hold back in ridiculing Whyte.

He said: “Dillian Whyte is running back home to the UK before he even steps foot in America.

“Once Dillian found out that I was going to welcome him to America with a nice KO loss, he turned the plane around and flew home. That’s the truth. Ain’t nothing here in America for Dillian but concussions.

“I don’t blame him, running home to safety. It makes sense for him. He knew what was coming for him.

“Dillian did the right thing, because he’s been looking kinda shaky in his last couple of fights. I don’t think his chin is there anymore. He knows it too, so it’s a good thing he bought a round trip ticket.

“Eddie knows best. He thought why get my second-best heavyweight knocked out by Charles in America. I understand, Eddie probably don’t believe in him either.

“Next time you’re coming to conquer America, at least get off the plane!”

It is not the first time Matin has bashed Whyte, previously labelling the Brit an “easy fight”.

He plans to knockout Whyte to secure another title shot against Anthony Joshua, who he was knocked out by in 2016.
