Jamaican-British boxer, Dillian Whyte has asked the World Boxing Council (WBC) to force Tyson Fury to fight him next.
According to him, the WBC should give Fury “no choice” but to accept a mandatory title fight.
Fury had knocked down Deontay Wilder in the 11th round of their trilogy fight on Saturday. The victory extended his undefeated record and reign as WBC heavyweight champion.
Whyte, who has endured a lengthy wait for a shot at the belt, said he could win if he beats Otto Wallin later this month.
During his interview with Sky Sports News, Whyte said “Fury has the belt. Wilder had the chance to fight me for three years but didn’t.
“Hopefully now the WBC forces my position and Fury has no choice.
“It’s a massive British fight, a major fight for Britain. Fury is an unpredictable man who might say: ‘I am done!’
“I hope we can make a fight when I get past Wallin. But Fury is a difficult guy to plan.
“I haven’t heard a word from him about making a fight,” he said.
