Boxing Fight: Dillian Whyte, the WBC interim champion, has been put up to face the winner of Tyson Fury’s third WBC heavyweight title fight against former champion Deontay Wilder this weekend at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Dillian Whyte has been named as a challenger to Tyson Fury’s WBC heavyweight title fight against Deontay Wilder this weekend.
Fury defends his WBC championship against Wilder in a trilogy fight in Las Vegas, with Whyte set to challenge the victor after the governing body confirmed a long-awaited title shot.
The WBC has said that if Fury or Wilder wins the WBC title, they may seek an undisputed world title battle.
However, because of Oleksandr Usyk’s scheduled rematch with Anthony Joshua, Whyte should obtain a WBC title bout if he retains his status as WBC interim champion.
According to a WBC statement: “The WBC Board of Governors has reviewed the Heavyweight Division’s recent history.
“Given the division’s prolonged inactivity as a result of the pandemic, ongoing legal processes, and Covid-19 infections, the WBC has ruled that the winner of this fight will have 30 days to secure a contract to unify the Heavyweight Division against WBO-IBF-WBA champion Oleksandr Usyk in search of an undisputed champion.”
“If no unification fight is secured inside that time frame, the victor of Fury v. Wilder 3 must then face the then-reigning WBC Interim Heavyweight Champion.”
