Dillian Whyte has laid down the gauntlet to Tyson Fury by saying ‘let’s just have the fight’ as his British rival waits to see if Deontay Wilder is fit enough for their October trilogy.
Fury beat Wilder in Las Vegas back in February and their third meeting has been pencilled in for October by the US television networks having been pushed back by the Covid-19 pandemic.
But the American has admitted he cannot ‘work out’ yet after surgery on his left bicep following his defeat by Fury, throwing the rematch into jeopardy.

And so Whyte, who is guaranteed a shot at the winner of Fury-Wilder 3 by February 2021 at the latest as the WBC mandatory challenger, believes he should be stepping into the ring sooner with the ‘Gypsy King’.
‘Why don’t we just get it on?’ Whyte told Sky Sports. ‘He just talks rubbish. I don’t want to talk s*** about this, that or whatever. All I want to do is fight these guys.
‘Let’s just have the fight. Like he said to Deontay Wilder, ‘It’s only a fight, you win some, you lose some.’ It’s just a fight.
‘Why wouldn’t he want to fight me instead of waiting for an injured Wilder to recover, as he may not even be ready by October due to the severity of his injury.’

‘No, you can never trust what Tyson Fury says, never,’ said Whyte. ‘Tyson Fury says a lot of things.
‘He said he would fight me if the WBC put the Diamond Belt on the line and then couldn’t run away fast enough when they agreed.

‘If it comes next, I’m not going to be, ‘oh yeah!’ I’ve been waiting for a long time. Everyone talks the talk but doesn’t walk the walk.
‘All they’re doing is conning the public and depriving them of good fights. Why don’t boxers fight each other? I will fight anyone and I don’t care if I lose.
‘All I can do is stay ready and stay focused on what I’m doing. My only requirement is give me enough time to prepare properly.’
