“The humorous factor is he’s not able to be demanding something, he has no belt, he has no credibility within the sport after quitting towards Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez after saying he’d die earlier than taking a knee within the ring.
“He lambasted Daniel Dubois after a watch damage, an actual eye damage. There was nothing flawed with Saunders, he acquired a black eye however there was no smashed orbital bone, there was no damaged eye socket, there was no proof of that – that was all a sham.
“That’s why he’s been MIA for the previous couple of months due to the disgrace in what he did.
“He has no credibility, he has no energy within the sport so he can’t be saying he needs £5m, he’ll get what he’s given. I’m the A-side and as soon as he understands that we will speak.
“It [the rivalry] used to burn inside, now he’s not on my radar. He has nothing – he has no respect, he has no belt.
“It’s not one thing that’s tremendous necessary to me. Clearly he has a win over me so I wish to avenge that however I’m not going to exit of my manner, I’m not going to interrupt my again to make that battle.
“He wants me. I’m his solely choice, he has actually nobody else to battle. Whereas I’ve an untold quantity of names and fights which might be obtainable to me over the following 12 months or two. Big, enormous fights.
“So long as issues are on my phrases we will make it occur and I’m certain we’ll in some unspecified time in the future sooner or later.”
