Dillian Whyte has requested that Tyson Fury face him next at the World Boxing Council (WBC).
Fury believes the WBC should give him “no choice” but to accept a required championship match. Whyte has had to wait a long time for a chance to compete for the championship.
Last Saturday, Fury knocked out Deontay Wilder in the 11th round of their trilogy fight.
As a result of the win, his undefeated record and tenure as WBC heavyweight champion were extended.
Due to his status as a mandatory challenger, Whyte may receive his first opportunity at the crown if he overcomes Otto Wallin later this month.
“Fury is the rightful owner of the belt. Whyte told Sky Sports News that Wilder had three years to fight him but chose not to.
“Hopefully, now that the WBC has compelled Fury to accept my point of view, he won’t have a choice.”
“This is a massive British battle, a great British fight,” says the commentator.
“Fury is a volatile individual who has been known to say, ‘I’m done!’
“Once I get past Wallin, I’m hoping we can fight.”
“However, Fury is a hard man to predict.”
I haven’t heard anything about a brawl from him.”
