With the fight still days away, the next opponent for whoever the winner in the trilogy
between WBC Heavyweight Champ Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder is already taking
shape.
Promoter Frank Warren is insisting that Dillian Whyte is to make the mandatory WBC
title challenger if he gets to win over Otto Wallin on their bout.
This is becoming possible after the Anthony Joshua defeat that crushed the unification
dream in the heavyweight division.
Whyte is currently the WBC interim champ and has all the right to be lined up next as
Joshua will pursue an immediate rematch to the now-unified heavyweight king
Oleksandr Usyk.
“As long as Dillian beats Otto Wallin, then Whyte is mandatory for the winner of that
fight immediately,” Warren said on IFL TV
‘There is no reason not to do it. Dillian, who 100 per cent would have wanted AJ to win,
because he’s not like that.
‘He now sits there as probably a cast-iron mandatory challenger to the winner of Wilder-
Fury.
‘So now, while you’re waiting for the undisputed fight, which, if it does happen, will
probably happen next summer.
‘The winner of Wilder-Fury will probably fight the winner of Whyte-Wallin because they
will have to because the mandatory will be called.”
