Frank Warren believes Whyte should be angry
The business side of boxing is, and always has been, the one thing that fans and enthusiasts have agreed is a problem in the sport. Big fights often take a few laps around the block before coming into fruition. However, given the current climate hopefully, things will change.
This brings us to the forever WBC mandatory Dillian “The Body Snatcher” Whyte (27-1, 18ko). The British heavyweight has been waiting a ridiculous amount of time for his title fight and is taking action by taking the matter to court.
Furthermore, the chances of getting close to the title seems even dimmer following an announcement that WBC champion Tyson “Gypsy King” Fury (30-0-1, 21ko) and unified champion Anthony “AJ” Joshua (23-1, 21ko) have agreed to a two-fight deal.
The Body Snatcher couldn’t have been pleased when the news dropped.
British promoter Frank Warren agrees with Whyte’s sentiments of frustration. However, he expressed that Whyte wouldn’t have this problem if he was under the Queensberry Banner.
Warren makes a valid point; the WBC champion is on top of the world after coming back from a three-year hiatus. Moreover, the boxing community wrote him off considering the struggles Fury went through after defeating then-unified heavyweight kingpin Wladimir “Dr. Steelhammer” Klitschko back in 2015.
It is worth noting the WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman has already stated that the British heavyweight is guaranteed a title fight with the winner of the upcoming trilogy between the organization’s champion Fury and Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder (42-1-1, 41ko).
