RELATED: Dillian Whyte Will Face Otto Wallin On October 30 In London

Whyte, a British boxer, is currently the WBC interim champion and he’s defending it against Wallin.

But first, the WBC will allow the winner of Fury-Wilder to negotiate a fight with Oleksandr Usyk, the WBA, IBF and WBO champion. But Usyk is contracted for an obligated rematch with Anthony Joshua, so he won’t be able to face anyone else any time soon.

This opens the door for Whyte.
