The only boxer to have defeated Oscar Rivas among professionals, Briton Dillian White wants nothing but a fight with the World Boxing Council (WBC) Heavyweight Champion, fellow countryman Tyson Fury.
According to the BBC, Whyte (28-2-0, 19 KOs) dismissed the allegations, saying he cited a false injury to justify his forfeiture announced last week in last Saturday’s fight against Sweden’s Otto Wallin. The 32-year-old boxer gave up the fight due to a shoulder problem and the rival clan asked to postpone the fight. However, the mandatory contender for the WBC title instead wants to cross swords with the champ.
He’s ‘not thinking’. Tyson Fury is considered the best heavyweight in history. So, is it about him or fighting someone who doesn’t even know how to express himself appropriately? White mentioned when attacking Wallen. All he does is moan. He and his promoter [Dmitriy] Salita just cries like children. He complains of losing 15 thousand pounds [environ 25 500 $] for the camp. Me, I spent 10 times more on my bootcamp.”
Anger can say yes
Fallen by unanimous decision on July 20, 2019, Rivas is Fury’s mandatory contender (31-0-1, 22 KOs). The latter emerged victorious from a trilogy with American Deontay Wilder, who was defeated by K.-O. October 9. However, one of his merchandising partners, Bob Arum, specified that the boxer’s next competitor would be Wyatt or Joe Joyce. Then, the plans will be a shock to unite the other titles with Oleksandr Usyk, the category king within the International Boxing Federation, the World Boxing Association and the World Boxing Organization.
Previously, Usyk would have to battle Anthony Joshua in 2022.
“Whoever faces Fury will be decided by Fury,” Arum told Sky Sports. If the fight is in the UK, I think White is a good prospect, as is Joyce. Having played his last five duels in the States, it is very important that Tyson returns to fight here. He is British and has many supporters in the UK. And if he plays here before returning to the United States, he will take 10,000 citizens.”
