Heavyweight Contender Dilian Whyte found it difficult to predict a winner for the upcoming WBC Heavyweight Championship Showdown between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder, which takes place on October 9th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Whyte, who stands a better chance of facing the winner of the showdown this coming weekend believes that there is very little interest in the Trilogy fight between the undefeated British champion Fury and the ones defeated Wilder because of the time spent during the build up for the rematch.
The third fight which was first slated for the summer of 2020 but the Corona Virus Pandemic caused a postponement to October of last year, then another postponement made Fury promise, he wasn’t going to grant Wilder a third fight any more as the time in the contract had expired.
Wilder had to drag Fury to the Court Of Arbitration, where Fury was forced to abandon plans of facing former Unified Champion Anthony Joshua for a third meeting with Wilder and that was first slated for July 2021 but later shifted 2½ months after Fury returned a positive COVID 19 test results.
“I don’t know, and I don’t think no one cares who win that fight, to be honest,” Whyte stated Saturday during a show that was streamed live from Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London. “I think the fight is past its sell-by date now. It’s gone on too much. If Wilder win, there may be a fourth fight. You feel me? If Wilder win, there may be even a fourth fight. So, it’s like, ‘Yo!’”
Dillian Whyte will be looking forward to this fight with great interest as he holds the interim version of the WBC Heavyweight world title held by Tyson Fury and has already been peeped as the next in line to fight ones Fury -Wilder saga is over.
Whyte will also have his hand filled and will on be defending his WBC inter strap and No.1 spot against Swedish boxer Otto Wallin on Oct 30th at the O2 Arena in London.
