Dillian Whyte has said that he intends to fight Tyson Fury after his fight with Otto Wallin was canceled.

The Body Snatcher was scheduled to face Wallin in the ring next weekend, but Whyte was forced to retire after sustaining a shoulder injury in training.

After Whyte’s WBC ‘interim’ belt defense against Wallin was announced, the WBC ruled that Fury must defend himself against the ‘interim’ champion next, unless he can agree to an undisputed showdown with Oleksandr Usyk within 30. days.

With Usyk forced to face Anthony Joshua, an undisputed fight is off the table leaving the door open for Whyte to shoot Fury.

The Brixton fighter has waited more than 600 days for his title shot; He maintains that he must fight Fury next and that the WBC must force the Gypsy King to face him.

Wallin has now called an independent doctor to prove Whyte is injured and admitted that he was frustrated because he was desperate to get into the ring with the ‘Body Snatcher’.

When asked if he would accept Fury’s fight for rescheduling the fight with Wallin, Whyte said talkSPORT: ‘Yes of course.

“I could have easily abandoned this route and took another route years ago, but I have waited and waited and waited.

‘So what am I going to do? Fight Otto Wallin or fight Tyson Fury, what are you going to do? It is common sense.

That’s for me and your team to sort it out at the end of the day.

‘We don’t know what Tyson Fury is going to do. I may say “Yes, that’s it tomorrow. I’m done.”

It could disappear. It could disappear.

‘We were ready before this fight. He’s come out of two fights with me before.

The Body Snatcher said it was “ common sense ” to take Fury’s fight by rescheduling Wallin

Like I said, I’m not afraid of anyone. I wanted to fight.

I think they are going to force me against Tyson Fury, basically they already said that.

‘It really has already been a mandate, so we don’t have to wait …

‘I want it to be in the UK, that’s a UK fight.

‘Vegas is great, I would love to go to Vegas and fight, but that’s a British fight.

“That is the biggest heavyweight title fight of all Brits since Lennox Lewis vs. Frank Bruno.”

It remains to be seen if the Wallin fight will reorganize and how long Whyte will be on the sidelines due to his injury.
