Bob Arum – Dillian Whyte Vs Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury Rematch Winner Is Appropriate
Top Rank Promoter Bob Arum has made believes that Dillian Whyte should definitely be facing the winner of the Deontay Wilder Vs Tyson Fury Rematch which takes place on February 22nd at the MGM Grand Arena.
Fury will be facing WBC heavyweight champion Wilder the the second time after both battled to a split draw in their first meeting at Staples Centre back in December 2018. However Dillian Whyte presently holds the WBC Interim title and has been ordered by the sanctioning body to face the winner of their rematch sometime in 2021.
The rematch between Wilder and Fury has a trilogy clause whoever wins the rematch which indirectly delays Dillian Whyte’s title shot.
“Whyte is a good fighter. He’ll get his shot down the road,” Arum told Sky Sports News.
“Whyte, if he keeps fighting and winning, should be next after the trilogy occurs. That would be appropriate. Everybody knows there is a three-fight deal and the loser may pull the plug. But Whyte should be next..”
Dillian Whyte who is both the Mandatory Challenger and Interim champion could get his title shot before their trilogy which is set to take place around or after the summer, if the winner will be able to secure a pass or a delay on the trilogy.
Dillian Whyte has been calling out the Alabama knockout star for a while now and has expressed his desire for a shot at the WBC title and has even earned a mandatory spot and an interim title but doesn’t have an idea why the WBC have him always overlooked whenever opponents are considered.
“Ask [WBC president] Mauricio Sulaiman. Tweet him every day until he gives a realistic answer. So far his answers haven’t been acceptable. Not only have I been the No 1 contender for so long, I’ve continued to fight top 10 contenders. Loyalty is an understatement! I’ve won every WBC belt that I’ve been eligible for,” Whyte said.
