Dillian Whyte has had to play the waiting game before he has got his chances. Having waited for his turn at the world heavyweight championship, he will finally have the opportunity on Saturday. However, it is being reported that the winnings will be split into an 80:20 ratio. This is because it is Fury who is the current WBC and the Ring Heavyweight Champion.

Having said that Whyte had earlier objected to this ratio but nothing concrete came up as a result of that. The British boxer had missed the last month’s press conference as a mark of protest over the promotion of the fight but is back in London for the contest. From what has been reported by the media, the Jamaica-born boxer will receive over 54 crore INR for the fight which looks pale in comparison to the over 393 crore INR being given to Fury.

In contest of the above development, Anthony Joshua, who had knocked out Whyte in 2015 on his way to a World Championship fight at Wembley in 2017. However in a recent interview, while he described Fury as his enemy, he said that he was happy for him.

“Even though Dillian Whyte is an enemy of mine, I’m low-key happy for him. He’s a good defence (for Fury) against Whyte,” he said in an interview with iFL TV.

Talking about Joshua, his fight against Oleksandr Usyk 2 is likely to go ahead as planned with a rematch date as well as the venue to be confirmed within a couple of weeks. An official announcement is expected shortly after confirmation from Usyk’s team.
