Boxing news: Deontay Wilder has ‘no problem’ fighting Dillian Whyte, says co-manager Jay Deas

Dillian Whyte has been the WBC’s number one ranked fighter for around 600 days and still cannot get a shot at WBC champion Deontay Wilder.

It seems like boxing is the only sport where that is possible at times. Whyte is on a nine-fight win streak heading into his clash with Oscar Rivas on July 20, a fight that promoter Eddie Hearn had hoped the WBC would ratify as a final eliminator.

In that time, Tyson Fury has fought to a draw with Wilder and now has a second date with him lined up in February.

Whyte has previously suggested Wilder is avoiding facing him and the WBC might even be complicit with the champion, but Wilder’s co-manager and trainer Jay Deas says he has ‘no problem’ fighting talkSPORT.com columnist Whyte.
