‘I’ll knock him out within six rounds’: Tyson Fury vows to destroy British rival Dillian Whyte… but only if WBC put their diamond belt on the line
- Reports had suggested that Tyson Fury had been ordered to face Dillian Whyte
- Contest was due to be a WBC eliminator but Gypsy King wants the diamond title
- Fury has promised to knock Whyte out within six rounds if a fight can be agreed
- The pair are in the running to face world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder
Tyson Fury has promised to demolish Dillian Whyte before agreeing a big money rematch with Deontay Wilder – but only if the WBC diamond belt is on the line.
Reports last week suggested that the Gypsy King had been ordered to fight his fellow Brit in an eliminator to decide who would face Wilder for his world heavyweight title next.
Fury, who takes on Tom Schwarz in Las Vegas next month, believes he deserves another shot at the Bronze Bomber after their controversial draw last year.

He will, however, agree to a bout with Whyte if the WBC switch the contest from an eliminator to a fight for their diamond belt, which is traditionally awarded to the winner of high profile showdown.
In a video message on Instagram, Fury said: ‘I just want to say a special message to the WBC, who supported me in my comeback and been very fair with me over the years.
‘I recently saw your quote about fighting for the interim title against Dillian Whyte and I’m very thankful for the opportunity.
‘But what I suggest is, because I beat Deontay Wilder and we all know what happened, I didn’t get the decision, but I still won and the world knows.

‘I propose that we make me and Dillian Whyte for the WBC diamond belt and not the interim belt.
‘I’ll take care of Dillian Whyte and I’ll knock him out within six rounds.
‘I accept the challenge, thank you very much. I’ll fight Dillian Whyte every day of the week and twice on a Sunday.
‘Make it for the diamond belt not the interim version and you’ve got a deal. Let’s get it on!’
Whyte quickly responded to Fury’s message on Instagram, writing: ‘Let’s do it then.
‘I’d fight you anytime anywhere seven days a week and five times on Sunday. I look forward to putting you to sleep.’
