Despite high hopes of landing a fight against Deontay Wilder after winning the WBC Silver heavyweight title, Dillian Whyte will not be next in line.
The World Boxing Council announced recently that the fight between Eric Molina and Dominic Breazeale on this weekend’s Wilder-Stiverne undercard will be a title eliminator fight. The winner will get a shot at the WBC World heavyweight champion, Deontay Wilder, provided he retains against Bermane Stiverne at Barclays Center in New York.
Whyte has been after Wilder for a while now. His promoter Eddie Hearn has made several offers, even in the millions, but the American heavyweight champion has declined them all.
