“He might retire” – Heavyweight contender in the dark over potential Tyson Fury bout

Posted by

Heavyweight contender Dillian Whyte has provided the inside track on his efforts to get Tyson Fury in the ring.

Whyte is the mandatory contender to Fury’s WBC heavyweight title. As a result, Whyte and Eddie Hearn alike are expecting him to meet the Gypsy King in the ring early next year.

However, Fury, nor his team, have provided an official response to the prospect of fighting Whyte. They appear totally focused on celebrating his latest triumph over Deontay Wilder.

Whyte, speaking to DAZN (and quoted by boxingnews24), has revealed that he is currently in the dark over whether he will get the opportunity to fight Fury for his title.

“We don’t know yet; we have to see. Tyson Fury hasn’t reached out yet. We don’t know what Tyson Fury is going to do. He might retire.”

“He might go off on a binge, or he might just say, ‘I don’t want to fight him.’ Let’s wait and see. And he himself says from six in the morning to twelve at night. I don’t know what I’m going to do.”

“I’m ready to go. I’m going to rest for a few more weeks, and then I’m going to have a scan. And I’m ready to go.”

“That’s a fight I’m risking it all for. Who cares about me fighting Otto Wallin? People want to see me fighting Tyson Fury.”

“It’s a no-brainer. Tyson Fury, baby! The next logical fight is me and him. He [Fury] says he wants to come home [to the UK].”

“What better fight for him to come home to fight me in a stadium. It’s a massive fight all around the world, but it’s bigger here [England].”

Whyte has been waiting for several years to have the chance to fight for a world title. He’s now within touching distance, but Fury doesn’t appear prepared to play ball.

The Jamaican-born Brixton fighter may be left with no choice but to allow Fury to get the celebrations out of his system before working on arranging a bout for next year.

The reality is that Fury cannot run from the WBC forever. Whyte just needs to remain patient – and allow his injured shoulder to heal in the meantime!
