Dillian Whyte has declared that he might need to jump Deontay Wilder in a bar in order to make a fight happen between them in 2020.
Brixton’s ‘Body Snatcher’ beat Oscar Rivas to become WBC ‘interim’ champion and, as a result, mandatory challenger for the heavyweight world title on July 20.

However, it was subsequently reported that a drugs test returned three days prior to this win stated that Whyte’s system contained an adverse finding and his lawyers are currently attempting to resolve an ongoing UKAD case on the matter.
Now, Whyte’s position for 2020 has been taken by Tyson Fury, meaning that if his case is resolved he will only become mandatory in 2021.
Discussing his ideal scenario for next year, Whyte told Sky: “The WBC force Wilder to fight me.
“I know they’re trying to make the fight happen, but Wilder don’t want to fight for some reason.
“Wilder keeps running and keeps hiding, he said he was gonna make me wait two/three years and that’s exactly what happened.”
Whyte returns to the ring against Mariusz Wach on Saturday night, but has his long-term sights firmly set on Wilder.
When asked how he could force the fight, the 31-year-old said: “I don’t know, maybe I just need to jump him in a bar or something and just smash him to bits, steal his title and run off.
“Punch him up and take the belt and run off into the night.”
