Whyte livid with WBC - Breazeale-Molina winner in line for Wilder

British heavyweight contender Dillian Whyte is furious with the World Boxing Council, after reading on their website that Saturday's fight, between Dominic Breazeale and Eric Molina, is a WBC sanctioned final eliminator for a crack at world champion Deontay Wilder.

Breazeale vs. Molina takes place as part of the undercard at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. In the main event, Wilder fights Stiverne in a rematch.

Last Saturday night in Cardiff, Whyte won a twelve round unanimous decision over Robert Helenius to capture the WBC silver title. Whyte is going to be ranked at number one and also holds the WBC Silver International title and the WBC International title.

A statement on the WBC website read: "This fight will be a final elimination, a fact that adds an extra ingredient of motivation to excel, whatever the odds."

The decision by the WBC is very odd, because Breazeale is ranked sixth by the WBC and Molina is all the way down at in the twelfth position.

For the last few months, Whyte has been pushing hard to get Wilder in the ring.

His promoter, Eddie Hearn of Matchroom, has date lined up in early February in London. He believes the WBC's statement has to be a mistake. 

"I've fought for all these WBC eliminators and I've got three WBC belts. If anyone deserves a final eliminator it's me. I at least have to fight the Breazeale vs. Molina winner," Whyte told Isaac Robinson.

"I'm the highest-ranked WBC fighter outside of Wilder. This Breazeale vs. Molina is a terrible fight and Breazeale should win in two or three rounds. Molina is coming off an awful performance and has shown no ambition.

"I still want Wilder as my next opponent. We'll try to get that. As far as I know, I'm still No. 1 challenger. Once Stiverne loses, I should be mandatory. The rankings will change in the next few days and I should be No. 1."

Whyte has done nothing to get a title shot. His name is being used to protect AJ.

[QUOTE=WBC WBA IBF;18198634]The WBC has more wiggle room after they make the order and then Hearn objects. We're not all over the place, you just don't understand how sanctioning body politics work. When Stiverne moves to the main event, Breazeale…

Well if he didn't look so mediocre in his last bout things might be different. Instead he's cursed to end up like Chisora, the UKs punching bag.
