Tyson Fury faces frustrating wait as WBC unable to order Dillian Whyte mandatory fight | Boxing | Sport

The Gypsy King has not fought in the UK since 2018 – and WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman has said in the past that he is hopeful of a fight between Fury and the Brixton Body Snatcher.

“The WBC order was very clear, that the winner of Fury vs Wilder has one month to try to secure the ultimate unification against Usyk, who defeated Joshua,” Sulaiman told talkSPORT.

“If they’re not capable of doing such, then the WBC would go with a mandatory, which is the interim champion. 

“We have received from the British Boxing Board of Control the medical certification that Whyte could not fight Wallin because of the injury. So we are going to do what we promised, which is that way we are moving forward.”

Whyte believes the prospective clash with Fury would be the biggest all-British heavyweight title fight since Lennox Lewis versus Frank Bruno in 1993.
