Dillian Whyte wants to get his hands on Fury or Wilder

WBC Interim heavyweight champion Dillian “The Body Snatcher” Whyte’s (27-1, 18ko) patience has grown thin. There has been a rollercoaster of issues preventing the British heavyweight from fighting for the heavyweight crown.

The history between the WBC and the Interim champion is going into its third season for the best drama category in boxing. For one, he was leap-frogged over as the WBC mandatory by both Dominic “Trouble” Breazeale and Tyson “The Gypsy King” Fury.

Things looked even dimmer with words of a failed drug infraction by UKAD (United Kingdom Anti-Doping). This would cause the WBC to suspend the British heavyweight while performing a more thorough investigation. Resultingly, the Body Snatcher would see reinstatement as the Interim champion.

Now sidelined watching and waiting for the epic rematch between WBC champion Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder and the self-proclaimed lineal champion Fury, he remains uncertain if a fight with the winner will come into fruition.

Whyte was interviewed by Sky Sports and explained that although he wants Fury to win, he won’t benefit from it all.

“Tyson Fury, hopefully now he’s in a better place, he’s in better shape mentally and physically. I am hoping he does beat Deontay Wilder, but that doesn’t guarantee me a fight.

He said he would fight me one minute and the next minute he said he’ll fight Derek Chisora.

I don’t know, I just want to get a hold of one of them and smash them to bits. That’s it. I’m going to take years of frustration and anger on one of them.”
