Whyte: A Fight With Me is There For Fury, He Doesn't Want It!

Heavyweight contender Dillian Whyte has no problem with facing Tyson Fury in a WBC final eliminator.

The sanctioning body is very interested in ordering a final eliminator between Whyte and Fury.

The current champion, Deontay Wilder, will defend his belt against mandatory challenger Dominic Breazeale on May 18th at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Promoter Eddie Hearn is pushing to have Whyte's upcoming fight sanctioned as a final eliminator. Whyte faces undefeated Oscar Rivas on July 20th.

Fury is back on June 15th, against Tom Schwarz at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

"We're all trying to come up with a resolution that's fair and we haven't yet, so we're still pushing," Hearn told Sky Sports.

"We want the Rivas fight to be for something very significant for the WBC and that's probably an interim world title fight and to become the mandatory to the winner of Deontay Wilder against Dominic Breazeale."

Whyte is open to whichever direction the sanctioning body orders.

"If Tyson Fury wants the fight, the fight is there," Whyte told Sky Sports. "We've been trying to fight Tyson Fury.

"I'm not scared of Tyson Fury. I'll fight Tyson Fury any day, any time, anywhere. I'm ready. I've been ready, trying to fight him."

Despite the statements from the WBC, Fury has yet to make a comment on the situation.

"Because it's not a fight he wants. Tyson Fury is clever. He doesn't want to put a lot of light on the fight, because he knows he might get pushed into taking the fight. What he's doing, he's just biding his time, letting these idiots jump on the bandwagon and put their two pence in, that's all," Whyte said.

Fury was close to a deal for a Wilder rematch earlier this year, but instead he opted to finalize a co-promotional deal with Top Rank and ESPN.

Yes it could actually work in Whyte's favour as Fury wants to keep it low risk until he fights AJ or Deontay Wilder again. Though in the UK it will still be a massive fight and could make more than…
