Brixton heavyweight Dillian Whyte has revealed he is hoping to face the winner of Tyson Fury’s rematch with Deontay Wilder in December, East Side Boxing report.
Whyte enjoyed a fine year in 2018, defeating Lucas Browne, Joseph Parker and Dereck Chisora.
Following his second victory over rival Chisora, ‘The Body Snatcher’ was heavily linked with a rematch against Anthony Joshua.
However, despite negotiations between the two camps, Joshua will now face American Jarrell Miller at Madison Square Garden on June 1.
Whyte is likely to take on Dominic Breazeale next after the WBC ordered the pair to face off and the 30-year-old has already planned out his targets for the year.
Talking to the media, Whyte revealed he is hoping to take on the winner of Wilder-Fury II for the WBC title in December.
It’s just good to be in the position to face the winner of Wilder or Fury, whoever wins. I’m one of the top four in the world and it’s about time I get what I deserve and what I’ve worked hard for.
If the winner of the Wilder-Fury fight doesn’t get injured, then yeah, interim title in June or July, fight for the world title in December. What a year that would be.
However, with Whyte promoted by Eddie Hearn, a clash with either Wilder or Fury could be hard to negotiate.
