Tyson Fury is set to receive official confirmation of his next challenger

Published

For Whyte, an arduous journey lasting over four years looks set to end in a huge British battle against Fury in 2022.

At the WBC annual convention, Fury’s commitments as the WBC heavyweight champion will be clarified on Tuesday, with Whyte sitting in pole position to challenge as the WBC ‘interim’ title holder.

Back in October 2017, Whyte defeated Robert Helenius on points to claim the WBC ‘silver’ title and No 1 challenger status, lining up a fight against the WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder, which never materialised.

During Whyte’s prolonged period as the No 1 challenger, including an initial stint of over 1,000 days, he was overlooked while Wilder was ordered to make mandatory WBC title defences against Bermane Stiverne and Dominic Breazeale who were both knocked out inside the opening round, and contentiously, Tyson Fury.

Whyte had to sit and wait again, forced to remain silent for nearly six months, until UK Anti-Doping completely cleared him of any wrongdoing and withdrew all charges in December 2019.

Fury had been made the new mandatory challenger, even before Whyte had been exonerated, and he ripped the WBC belt from Wilder with a rematch win before inflicting another knockout on the American in last month’s trilogy clash.

A shock stoppage loss to Alexander Povetkin had thwarted Whyte’s attempt to enforce another mandatory fight, although he regained the WBC ‘interim’ belt with a brutal knockout win over the Russian in their rematch in March.

Barcelona set 2week deadline for $131m star to decide future amid Manchester United, Liverpool links

Dembele, who just has six months left on his current deal with Barcelona, has not signed an extension yet and will be free to negotiate with other clubs from January.

It is reported that Dembele’s agent, Moussa Sissoko, has been purposely delaying contract talks by asking for clarification about Dembele’s role at the club.

The Catalans suspect the former is looking to offer his client to the highest bidder.

However, Dembele has since struggled to live up to the price tag, mostly because of his injuries that have ruined his journey so far at Camp Nou. 

Dembele, who came off the bench in Barcelona’s previous two fixtures, has so far played only three competitive matches for Barcelona this season and is yet to go on the scoring sheet.

Dembele is still just 24 and former Al-Sadd boss Xavi believes the player is still capable of big things and wants to help him rediscover his form.

The France national moved from Borussia Dortmund to Barcelona at $131 million ahead of the 2017-18 season.
