Whyte Waiting on WBC To Make Decision on His Title Shot

Recently, heavyweight contender Dillian Whyte sat down with World Boxing Council president Mauricio Sulaiman to discuss the boxer's beef with their recent decisions.

Whyte, based on holding a number 1 ranking under the WBC, believes he was passed over by the sanctioning body - as they ordered WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder to make a mandatory defense against Dominic Breazeale.

“It was an amicable chat,” Whyte told Express Sport. “He’s the president. I speak my point, he speaks his point, and then we just come up with some sort of plan. We were meant to have something in place on Friday, but they’re late. I’m not surprised by that, so we’ll see what happens.”

Initially, the WBC ordered Whyte and Breazeale to fight in a final eliminator, with the WBC interim-belt at stake.

But when Wilder was unable to move forward with a rematch against Tyson Fury, the sanctioning body ordered Breazeale to get the shot.

Whyte is scheduled to return on July 13 at the O2 Arena in London.

At the moment nobody has been secured as the opponent.

Whyte is a bit frustrated with series of events in his career.

He wants the WBC to make him the mandatory challenger to Wilder vs. Breazeale, taking place on May 18th.

“My next fight [event] is arranged, now I’m just looking for an opponent,” Whyte said..

“It’s just frustrating really, because I’ve done more than enough [to earn a title shot]. I’ve been in the number one position for two years, fought numerous titles, defended my WBC silver, defended my WBC number one spot.

“Breazeale is number four, he’s done nothing, so why is he the mandatory? How can he be the mandatory? It’s boxing, it’s politics. A lot of things happen in boxing, you can’t cry about it. You can only crack on and do the best you can. I have a great team who are constantly working behind the scenes, turning the screws.”
