Tyson Fury got a mandatory challenger. The WBC Champion says waiting has an easy duel

Countryman Dillian White will be a mandatory contender for British boxer Tyson Fury in the fight for the WBC Championship belt. By order of the World Boxing Council, both sides have 30 days to agree to a duel.

It will likely take place in February or March next year, with possible venues being Cardiff in Wales and Manchester in England. “If the two teams involved agree, it will be Whyt’s first-ever competition for the world title.” Remember the English sources.

Fury retained his WBC Championship belt with his October victory over American Deontay Wilder. Then he had to prepare for a duel with Ukrainian Olekandr Usyk, who, after defeating another Briton, Anthony Joshua, won the belts of the WBU, IBF, IBF and IBF. However, Joshua took advantage of the revenge clause against Usyk, so Whyte became Fury’s mandatory competitor. The revenge between Joshua and Osick should happen in early 2022.

Fury’s field of more than two meters has a balance of 31 victories and one draw in the professional ring, which has defeated his opponents 22 times. The 33-year-old native of Whytenshawe in south Manchester said last month sarcastically that his potential rival Whyte would be his perfect rival.

“If we really met in the ring, I would have an easy fight. He has heavy legs and would be a perfect candidate for defeat. If they make him a mandatory candidate, let him prepare for the fight.” Fury told iFL TV, citing ESPN.
