Whyte To Face The Winner Of Wilder Vs. Fury If He Beats Rivas

"The winner of this fight will become the mandatory for the WBC World Title and it will take place before May 2020, so basically what you're seeing in this fight, is that the winner will likely be the mandatory for the winner of Fury vs Wilder".

Days after Matchroom Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn said the upcoming main event to the July 20 DAZN show would be for an interim title, the WBC followed suit and made the added stipulations official.

Rivas travelled to Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, NY in January and KO'd former World title challenger Bryant Jennings in the final round of their clash, underlining his unsafe potential to World titlists and fellow contenders, with "Kaboom" ranked at number ten with the WBC, seven in the IBF and a lofty five with both the WBA and WBO.

"I think Fury gets dropped anyway, but he gets up, as he proved against Wilder".

The Stena Impero is now being held at the Iranian port of Bandar Abbas, according to Iran's semiofficial Fars news agency . According to the Pentagon, the ship was in worldwide waters when the drone approached at 10:00 local time (05:30 GMT).


I expect Rivas to draw Whyte into exchanges early, and given the excitement generated in the Londoner's victorious contests previous year against Lucas Browne, Dereck Chisora and former world champion Joseph Parker, this ought to be no different. "He's wanted Wilder for a long, long time. But Wilder knows all he's got to do is get to him and hit him, so I don't know", he said.

"But this doesn't mean nothing, this is going to be a fight, and it's one thing I know how to do - is fight".

"That's why we've had to force the mandatory position". Ever since he lost to Anthony Joshua in 2015, Whyte has gone on to win nine straight fights and captured the WBC Silver title.

On his path to Saturday's interim title fight, Whyte has defeated Chisora (twice), Robert Helenius, Lucas Browne and former champion Joseph Parker.

This may be a little controversial as Dillian Whyte has stopped two of his last three, but I don't see him getting rid of Oscar. I train hard for everyone; the violence of this sport excites me and I train for that. I train for it.

The 32-year-old Rivas (26-0, 18 KOs), who fights out of Canada, most recently defeated former title challenger Bryant Jennings by 12th-round TKO. The 31-year-old United Kingdom native isn't looking ahead of Saturday's opponent to a potential title fight with Wilder. Why would I all of a sudden overlook someone?

"Rivas looks fit, strong, he's undefeated but he doesn't have anything I haven't seen before". I'm taking Whyte on points, although there's a chance Rivas could score an early knockout if Dillian's team get their tactics wrong. He's going to come out and I think he's going to have an interesting boxing career.
