Whyte Highly Doubts Fury WBC Eliminator Will Ever Happen

Heavyweight contender Dillian Whyte highly doubts that a mandatory eliminator with Tyson Fury is ever going to happen.

The World Boxing Council would like to order Whyte vs. Fury as a final eliminator, with the victory becoming the mandatory challenger to WBC world champion Deontay Wilder, who faces his current mandatory Dominic Breazeale on May 18th at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Whyte is back in the ring on July 20th, against undefeated contender Oscar Rivas.

And Fury is back on June 15th, when he faces Tom Schwarz at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Promoter Eddie Hearn is pushing the WBC to mandate Whyte vs. Rivas as a final eliminator.

“I’m the can man, whoever want it can get it. I’ve been trying to fight Tyson Fury for a number of years now. We’ve made multiple attempts and it never happened. If Fury wants to fight, he knows where I am. But I can’t see the fight happening," Whyte said to Talk Sport's The Drive.

“If Tyson fury can walk away from a rematch with Deontay Wilder for the WBC heavyweight world title, why would he fight me for the interim title? It doesn’t make sense.”

Whyte is still streaming over taking part in several WBC eliminators and getting a number one ranking - only to be stepped over in favor of Breazeale, who was ranked at 4 when the sanctioning body ordered him to face Wilder.

Wilder and Breazeale share the same management in Al Haymon.

The WBC claims Breazeale became the mandatory by beating Eric Molina in 2017, which for some reason became a final eliminator.

“There’s a lot of things going on with the WBC at the minute. Everyone knows I’m very angry at them and the way I’ve been treated. Everyone knows Deontay Wilder should’ve been fighting me and not Dominic Breazeale. But for some reason the WBC insist on protecting him… It’s a funny subject, I can’t really say too much, a lot of these boxing authorities are very touchy," Whyte said.

“The public can see what I’ve done, how many WBC title fights I’ve  ad, how many times I’ve defended my number one position. It’s crazy, I don’t understand it. Now, with the WBC, I think it’s just delaying tactics by them… It’s frustrating, it’s stressful, it’s a bit disheartening to be honest."

Its funny how Wilder fanboys are forced to reduce his entire 11 year career into "his last 2 fights". One in which he lost but was gifted a draw according to almost everyone.

[QUOTE=WBC WBA IBF;19730626]That's not true. The fight was very clearly stated as a final eliminator on the official WBC schedule and also announced as a final eliminator in a WBC press release. If there was any confusion, it may have…
