Tyson Fury's camp will try to make Dillian Whyte fight with British bout set for Cardiff Principality Stadium in March

DILLIAN WHYTE could be in line to fight Tyson Fury for the WBC title at Cardiff's Principality Stadium.

Fury's promoter Bob Arum admitted with Anthony Joshua set to rematch Oleksandr Usyk, hope of an undisputed title decider is slim.

And it leaves Whyte, the WBC mandatory challenger, as the second best option in their eyes.

According to BoxingScene, Arum has revealed talks will soon begin to set up the domestic mega-fight in Wales in March.

The promoter said: “Frank [Warren] and I are looking for the best possible opponent.

"Obviously, number one, we would like Usyk if Joshua steps aside.

"Number two, if that’s not possible, then Whyte probably is as attractive an opponent for Tyson as anybody else out there.

"So again, we’re gonna sit down with [Whyte’s] people and see if we can work out a deal.


“It’s a huge fight in England, and Tyson has indicated that he wants his next fight to be in the UK.

"So, now there’s two guys that come to mind – one is Whyte, the other is [Joe] Joyce.

"We’re gonna see. And, of course, it all depends on who Fury wants to fight. Ultimately, he’ll decide.”

Whyte, 33, is the WBC's interim champion which makes him the mandatory challenger for the title.

But he recently launched a legal case against the WBC to force through his shot at the belt.

In turn, it actually prevented the WBC from calling him to fight Fury, 33, at their annual convention in Mexico.

So instead, the Gypsy King could choose to fight Whyte on a voluntary basis opposed to a mandated defence.

Arum said: “You can’t sue an organisation and then say, ‘Well, make us mandatory.’

“Again, [the WBC is] quite right – until this is decided in arbitration, he doesn’t deserve to be the mandatory.

"I think they made a very, very appropriate decision. Now, that doesn’t mean that Tyson won’t end up fighting Dillian Whyte.

"But it won’t be done on a mandatory basis.”
