15) Carlos Alberto: Brazil, defender (1970) He was the rampaging right-back who at his only World Cup led what many believe to be the greatest team in history. Alberto is known most for scoring Brazil’s fourth goal in the final: a flamboyant blast into the corner after a wonderful team move. If you want to know how good he really was, though, check out his pass to Jairzinho ahead of the Gordon Banks wonder save from Pele. Ridiculous.

Whyte, ranked No 1 with the WBO and the WBC sanctioning bodies, claims bitter rival Joshua, holder of the WBO, IBF and WBA heavyweight titles, has never wanted to fight him. He told the Telegraph: “It’s clear to me that they have never been serious about making a fight with me for April 13.
3 Dillian Whyte says a potential fight with Anthony Joshua is dead in the water “If they were serious, they should have started negotiating sooner and with more realistic terms. “The way he is going about business, Joshua won’t be fighting me, Wilder, or Fury any time soon. “They’ve had the (Wembley Stadium) date booked for ages, and have known AJ was available since he beat Alexander Povetkin on 22 September, yet didn’t even make an initial offer until 10 January. “We could have made this fight if Joshua really wanted it but it has been clear to me all along that they’ve been focused on making the Jarrell Miller fight in New York city on [streaming service] DAZN.” He continued: “Eddie has been trying to make him and Joshua look like they’ve made a serious attempt to make a fight with me for April 13. “But I know Eddie, I’ve dealt with him for years and he didn’t make a real attempt. 3 Whyte insists Joshua has never had any intention of fighting him “Eddie is very good at what he does, his hands must be tied or he would have offered me more than 10-15% of what the fight is worth. “I’d love to fight AJ but it’s obvious that he doesn’t want it.” Whyte insists that Joshua, who beat him to become British heavyweight champion in December 2015, has been plotting a fight against Jarrell Miller for some time.
He added: “Let’s be very clear. They have long been cooking a Miller fight for DAZN at Madison Square Garden in the US. “I said that before the Dereck Chisora fight (on December 22). “In spite of having Wembley booked for April 13 for more than six months and knowing that AJ is available since September 22, they made no approaches or offers to me until 10 January.” MOST READ IN BOXING fight night Tyson Fury vs Tom Schwarz: Brit wins by TKO in the second round CONTROVERSY Breidis wins crazy, chaotic brawl in Latvia as he elbows opponent before KO ‘JOKE’ Whyte says Fury ‘should be ashamed’ after knocking out Schwarz in two rounds DISPUTE Billy Joe Saunders reacts angrily as Josh Warrington beats Kid Galahad on points AMERICAN DREAM Tyson Fury enjoys spectacular US-themed ring walk before fight STATEMENT Tyson Fury scores vicious second-round TKO of Schwarz, promises Wilder rematch RESPONSE ‘I will knock your cousin out’ – Dubois hits back at Fury after latest comments HOMECOMING Andy Ruiz Jr names venue he wants for Anthony Joshua rematch 3 Whyte insists Joshua has always had his eyes on a fight with Jarrell Miller Whyte, who has established himself as one of the top heavyweights in the world, says the fight purse he was offered to take on Joshua was way below his expectations.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ivan_Klasnić “The offer was unacceptable so I rejected it,” he revealed. “It’s so obvious. Joshua doesn’t want to fight me. “He wants to go to America and fight Miller. That is easy money. “One hundred per cent this was their plan the whole time. “He [Joshua] has had two kind of tough fights and Miller is an easy fight. “Miller has got no power but does have a good workrate. “He is just a big cabbage and Joshua will punch him to bits.” “
