Heavyweight contender Dillian Whyte will refuse any possibility of having his WBC heavyweight title shot pushed back.

The World Boxing Council ordered last year, that Whyte would get his title shot no later than February 2021.

Whyte is the mandatory challenger and holds the organization's interim-title at the weight. He's been the top rated challenger, under the WBC, since 2018.

The sport has been placed on hold, for the most part, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Tyson Fury captured the WBC title in February, with a seven round stoppage of Deontay Wilder.

There is a contracted trilogy fight being scheduled for the fall, but there is no telling when or where it will land.

Whyte was scheduled to fight Alexander Povetkin this month, with the bout being rescheduled for July.

Regardless of how the situation with Fury-Wilder 3 plays out, Whyte wants his ordered shot against whoever is champion.

"I've waited long enough now and I've been mandatory and number one for long enough now. The WBC have got to uphold their end of their bargain. I've more than done my bit, I've more than done what's required of me and what's been asked of me. I just want to be full WBC world champion. It's one of the highest prizes in sport, the WBC heavyweight championship," Whyte told PA Sport.

"It's all good fighting people because I'm a fighter and just winning fights and knocking everyone out, that's all good and enjoyable but you need a belt to secure the history and cross it off the list. I want to be able to say 'I was WBC or WBA or IBF or WBO heavyweight champion of the world'."

Whyte would like to fight Fury now, with Wilder getting the winner.

"I don't see why not because Deontay Wilder is injured, I've been the number one challenger for a long time so Fury should just fight me next. Let's have a massive fight and get rid of this WBC mandatory and number one contender nonsense," Whyte said.
