Dillian Whyte to await turn for Wilder

April 25, 2018

DILLIAN WHYTE is fuming with the World Boxing Council after they snubbed him for a shot at heavyweight champ Deontay Wilder.

The American has the famous green belt – the only one missing from Anthony Joshua’s collection – but has a padded record of 40-0.

AJ’s promoter Eddie Hearn is in New York this week and sitting down with Wilder’s awkward team on Thursday to try to thrash out a deal to decide an undisputed king once and for all.

Dominic Breazeale was made mandatory challenger for Wilder’s title after beating Eric Molina in November 2017 but Bodysnatcher Whyte thought he had jumped to the head of the queue after demolishing Lucas Browne and winning the WBC’s silver title in March.

Instead the Brixton banger – whose only loss on his record is a thrilling grudge bout with AJ in 2015 – has been ordered to face Cuban two-time drug cheat Luis Ortiz for second-spot inline for Wilder.

With Breazeale unlikely to face Wilder until the summer, if Whyte can get past ‘King Kong’ Ortiz his title shot would be over a year away at least.

And the 30-year-old said it was bulls*** that he was being passed over for a shot at the crown.

Whyte already has a fight pencilled in for July 21 against Kubrat Pulev as a final eliminator for the IBF belt that AJ holds along with the WBA and WBO straps.

ny Joshua delivered a seventh-round KO of Dominic Breazeale, and it’s the latter who could fight Deontay Wilder next

The Whyte-Ortiz bout will go to purse bids with a 50:50 split on May 25 in Mexico City unless a deal is agreed before then.

The whole things spells bad news for the potential of a Joshua versus Wilder fight next.

Whyte pleaded for a fight against Wilder after he delivered a stunning sixth-round KO of Aussie Browne last month in London.

Just weeks earlier Wilder had secured his own stunning stoppage win – against Cuban Ortiz in the tenth.
