The WBC have already publicly ordered Fury to face Whyte, the WBC interim champion, if he couldn’t agree an undisputed world title battle towards Oleksandr Usyk inside 30 days.
Regardless of the expiry of that deadline, the WBC didn’t initially announce Fury’s subsequent battle at their annual conference, however Whyte has identified that his necessary standing has since been reaffirmed by the governing body.

“Fury has been mandated to battle me twice. He requested for the WBC ‘Diamond’ belt to battle me, however ran away once they agreed. He simply retains making excuses.
“Hopefully now he is obtained no selection. What’s he going to do? Throw the belt within the bin and run away from extra money than he obtained to battle [Deontay] Wilder?
“Clearly he says he is a combating man and a person of his phrase, however everyone knows he talks lots of s***, so let’s examine. He stated he was going to battle me after he beat Wilder, then he ran away. Let’s examine what he does.”
Fury’s lingering hopes of an undisputed world title battle have been ended after promoter Eddie Hearn informed Sky Sports activities that Anthony Joshua is already preparing for the Usyk rematch.
Whyte says Fury is totally conscious that he would pose a extra punishing problem than Usyk, who’s a former undisputed cruiserweight champion.

“However he cannot field and he cannot battle. Every part he does is erratic and that is why Fury was capable of take him out.
“He knocked Fury down twice, heavy knockdowns, and Fury got here again and gained rounds. Wilder is only a freak of nature, he has no technical skill.
“If I put Fury down, I will be attacking him, head and physique, head and physique.
“I do not know what Wilder was doing. He did not appear to be he had any technique or something. He was simply leaping into vary and simply appearing loopy.”
