Dillian ‘Bodysnatcher’ Whyte’s aspirations to become the world heavyweight Champion have come against a stumbling block, as the WBC fails to order current champion Tyson Fury to fight him next.
Whyte is supposed to be the mandatory challenger for Fury’s WBC belt, but the WBC says his legal battles prevent them from calling for the match.
WBC had earlier said they were intending to order a mandatory defence for Fury if he failed to arrange a bout with new unified and WBA (Super), WBO and IBF champion Oleksandr Usyk.
However, that unification fight was cancelled once Anthony Joshua triggered his rematch clause against Usyk.
While Whyte is still the interim champion title holder, he would be disappointed to miss his chance at fighting against Fury for the Heavyweight belt.
British fight fans would also be disappointed if the fight doesn’t hold, as they are eager to see Whyte clash with Fury in the UK, which would be a long, overdue homecoming for the ‘Gypsy King’.
Should the current situation persist, Fury might have to return to the UK in his next fight, while awaiting the outcome of Joshua’s rematch with Usyk.
