Tyson Fury has laughed at the proposed order by the World Boxing Council, to have the 'Gypsy King' face Dillian Whyte in a final eliminator to determine a mandatory challenger to WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder.
Fury has rejected the idea of having to take part in any type of final eliminator.
Whyte has been fuming over the WBC's recent proposal, because the British fighter has been sitting in the number one position in their rankings for some time, and he was passed over in favor of Dominic Breazeale, who faces Wilder on May 18th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
Whyte has accused the WBC of catering to Wilder and protecting him.
Fury agrees with his heavyweight rival. He also believes the sanctioning body is mistreating Whyte.
"I don’t need to fight eliminators to fight people. I already had a Deontay Wilder fight the other day without an eliminator," Fury said to Behind The Gloves. "I think it's very unfair the way that they're treating Dillian Whyte because he's had to fight some good, undefeated men to work his way back up the ladder and I'm starting to believe what he's saying about them not wanting him to fight for a title maybe because if they've ordered him to fight me, that's a guaranteed loss.
"How long have you known me? Do I take orders from anybody? Definitely not. I ain’t being ordered to do anything by anybody. I’ve got my own shit going on, I’m going at my own pace and I do what I want to do."
Promoter Eddie Hearn has been pushing the WBC to sanction Whyte's upcoming return as a final eliminator. Whyte is back on July 20th, when he faces undefeated puncher Oscar Rivas at the O2 in London.
Fury is back on June 15th, when he makes his Las Vegas debut against Tom Schwarz at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
