What Dillian Whyte's Shock Loss Means For Tyson Fury Vs. Anthony Joshua

What Dillian Whyte's Shock Loss Means For Tyson Fury Vs. Anthony Joshua

Tyson Fury has "no restrictions" for a blockbuster undisputed showdown against Anthony Joshua following Dillian Whyte's shock defeat.

WBC title holder Fury had been ordered to make a defence against Whyte, but 'The Body Snatcher' lost his mandatory status after his sickening KO defeat to Alexander Povetkin on Saturday.

The WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman has now confirmed that Fury has no commitments next year if he beats Deontay Wilder.

The undefeated Brit is set to face Wilder for a third time later this year and if he defends his green and gold belt, he's free to take on unified heavyweight king Joshua.

"We don't speculate, but the time limitations which were put by the WBC board, which had Dillian Whyte won, the winner of the third Fury-Wilder fight has to fight without an intervening bout against Dillian Whyte," Sulaiman told Sky Sports.

"That now has changed. Dillian has lost, so there are no limitations at the moment for the winner of Fury-Wilder to do any fight whatsoever."

Fury and Joshua have agreed to meet next year with both boxers scheduled to have their own title defences.

'The Gypsy King' will fight Wilder in their trilogy bout with the WBC title on the line.

'AJ', on the other hand, is set to defend his WBA (super), IBF and WBO titles against Kubrat Pulev in November/December.

Whyte, meanwhile, could regain his WBC mandatory status if he beats Povektin in the rematch which was discussed immediately after the 'Fight Camp' show.
