Tyson Fury has been ordered by the WBC to fight Dillian Whyte as a final eliminator in order to secure his much-anticipated rematch with Deontay Wilder.
The 30-year-old ex-heavyweight world champion climbed off the deck to earn a heroic draw when the giant duo fought on December 1 for the American’s WBC title.
Whyte exclusively told talkSPORT
that he is ready, willing and able to fight Fury.
“I’m the ‘can man,’ whoever wants it can get it
,” Whyte exclusively told Drive. “I’ve been trying to fight Tyson Fury for a number of years now. We’ve made multiple attempts and it never happened.
“If Fury wants to fight, he knows where I am. But I can’t see the fight happening. If Tyson fury can walk away from a rematch with Deontay Wilder for the WBC heavyweight world title, why would he fight me for the ‘interim’ title? It doesn’t make sense.”
