Dillian Whyte accuses Anthony Joshua of being 'the Lance Armstrong' of heavyweight boxing

Boxing at The O2

Dillian Whyte has delivered a jab below the belt this week as Anthony Joshua's rival has accused the current world champion of being 'the Lance Armstrong' of heavyweight boxing. 

For those that are unaware, Armstrong was a seven-time winner of the Tour de France, which was completely unheard of within the sport, before his fall from grace as it was revealed that the cyclist had been taking performance enhancing drugs. 

In a new version of events, Whyte took to Instagram, where he boasts 236,000 followers, to make his latest dig at his long-time rival Anthony Joshua.

On social media, he said: “OK Mr Humble, it’s about time you show your true colours or is this just the testosterone rage coming out.

"Everyone knows you are the Lance Armstrong of heavyweight boxing you got a lot to say on here but when am face to face with you, you don’t say nothing #TESTOSTERONERAGE."

In addition to this, it appears that AJ is being attacked from all angles, with his next opponent Jarrell 'Big Baby' Miller also questioning the legitimacy of his muscly physique. 

According to Miller, he believes that Joshua 'illegally' gained muscle through performance enhancing drugs between the year of his Olympic victory in 2012 and his professional debut in 2013. 

Nonetheless, Joshua was quick to defend his pride by saying: “If I get tested and if, in the next ten years, something was to come up then it would be a genuine mistake because I do not shove needles up my a***.

“I’m in random drug testing all year around with one organisation and 12-weeks for a fight with the other," AJ stated. 

Furthermore, the current heavyweight world champion later replied to 'Big Baby' Miller with a verbal jab of his own, saying: "Jarrell Miller has been banned for drugs so maybe that’s why he’s saying it.”

Joshua will be making his fighting debut in the United States as he takes on Miller on June 1st.
