Dillian Whyte Vs Otto Wallin Winner Should Get WBC Mandatory Call – Hearn

Dillian Whyte WBC interim World Champion

Dilian Whyte’s Promoter Eddie Hearn will like if the WBC orders a Mandatory fight between his fighter and the Winner of the fight between WBC champion Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder, which takes place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday October 9th.

Dillian Whyte has been up there among the big Heavyweight’s for years hoping to land a title shot but somehow, he is still hoping for a Shot at the WBC World Title. This is mostly due to the inactivity of the WBC Champions and their string of rematch clauses, which has dragged up since December 2018.

Whyte is dated to face Otto Wallin on October 30th and his dream of facing the winner of the Tyson Fury Vs Deontay Wilder Trilogy will solely depend on him emerging victorious with a victory over the German.

There wes a huge wave of hope surrounding an all British Unification Fight between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury earlier this year. However, that didn’t materialise and might never happen between the two as Anthony Joshua was convincingly defeated with a unanimous decision by Oleksandr Usyk last weekend at the Tottenham Hotspur.

Hopes for a Unification fight after the Fury Wilder Trilogy Rematch will depend on, if Anthony Joshua will be able to defeat Oleksandr Usyk in their rematch, which is said to be in play for a date in the first quarter of 2022 and while they both did it out, Hearn will like the WBC to order a mandatory fight between Whyte and the winner of the of Fury Wilder Rematch.

“As long as Dillian beats Otto Wallin, then Whyte is mandatory for the winner of that fight immediately. There is no reason not to do it. Dillian, who 100 percent would have wanted AJ to win, because he’s not like that,” Hearn told IFL TV.

“He now sits there as probably a cast-iron mandatory challenger to the winner of Wilder-Fury. So now, while you’re waiting for the undisputed fight, which, if it does happen, will probably happen next summer. The winner of Wilder-Fury will probably fight the winner of Whyte-Wallin because they will have to because the mandatory will be called.

“It’s a really interesting situation. Anything can happen. In an ideal world, Tyson Fury beats Deontay Wilder, the mandatory is called for Dillian Whyte. Dillian Whyte beats Tyson Fury, AJ beats Usyk, and then we got Whyte against AJ for the undisputed next summer.”
