After his demolition of Lucas Browne, last weekend, the clamour for Dillian Whyte to be given a crack at the WBC world title, held by Deontay Wilder, continues to gather momentum.

There has been speculation before that Eddie Hearn tried to get the two into the ring together offering the brash, big-hitting American the biggest purse-offer of his career.

However, that ploy didn?t work out, but now, with Whyte about to be made the mandatory challenger, the fight could soon become a reality.

Ahead of the big unification clash between Anthony Joshua and Joseph Parker, a fight Wilder will not be in town to watch, the American has set out his own terms for a fight with Whyte.

Talking to the media, Wilder is quoted as having remarked,

?I have no problems with Dillian Whyte. If they put Joshua on that contract, I have no problems fighting Whyte.

?I?ll make them another deal. If Dillian Whyte fights Luis Ortiz and beats him, I will fight Dillian Whyte. That?s another one for them. They can take it or leave it. The only way they can get me in with Dillian Whyte is to fight Luis Ortiz and beat him or you put Joshua on that contract. I will fight you easy.?

So, there you have it, Wilder either wants Whyte to further prove himself, by beating Luis Ortiz, or for the fight contract to include a fight with Anthony Joshua.

Let?s see if Eddie Hearn can oblige.
