Interim WBC world heavyweight champion Dillian Whyte is ready to enter the ring with Deontay Wilder on short notice instead of Tyson Fury, who passed a positive test for coronavirus the day before. This was announced by the promoter of the British boxer Eddie Hearn.
It should be noted that White plans to hold his next fight in the United States. Earlier it was reported that his opponent could be American heavyweight Jermaine Franklin.
It is noteworthy that Whyte and Wilder have developed, to put it mildly, a difficult relationship. The Briton accuses the American of being afraid to fight with him when he was the WBC world champion, and Whyte was in the status of a mandatory challenger.
