Whyte: Fury And Wilder Don’t Want The Smoke
Dillian Whyte is the number one contender for the WBC world heavyweight title, but he’s currently third in-line for a shot against Deontay Wilder.
Wilder will face off against Luis Ortiz in a rematch of their exciting March 2018 showdown, and then in February, Wilder will face off against Tyson Fury in a rematch of their epic December 2018 battle on Pay-Per-View.
“Let’s see, these guys are always trying to find another way out of fighting me, as they keep doing,” Whyte said of Wilder and Fury to Sky Sports. “People would make a case, saying Fury would win, because of what he did last time. But Wilder knows all he’s got to do is get to him and hit him, so I don’t know.
“I think Fury gets dropped anyway, but he gets up, as he proved against Wilder. Who knows? Maybe if Wilder catches him clean, early enough, he might get up. But Wilder is garbage as well. I think Fury would beat him again anyway.”
“I would face [either] one of those guys,” Whyte said ahead of his July 20th fight against Oscar Rivas.
“Fury said he wanted to fight me. He was getting the WBC diamond belt. The WBC gave us the diamond belt and Fury said he didn’t want to fight me, so I don’t know.”
