The division has seen so much action and drama, particularly in the last few weeks, which has really changed […]

Fury made short work of Schwarz (Picture: Getty) Ben Davison has revealed Tyson Fury ignored his instructions during his fight with Tom Schwarz. Fury destroyed Schwarz inside two rounds in what was a mismatch encounter, stopping the German under a flurry of unanswered punches in the second. It was Fury’s Las Vegas debut, but Davison explained his heavyweight threw their gameplan out the window once the fight started. ‘It doesn’t mean it wasn’t a very good performance, but there were certain things I asked him to do,’ Davison told the Telegraph. ‘Speed was the key for the first part of that fight. This is Corner Cam for #FurySchwarz and it includes another run in with security 👀 "Speed, speed, speed. Feints and fluidity." Billy Joe: "Lovely stuff!" 😆 What Ben Davison said to Tyson Fury before, during and after the Tom Schwarz fight… pic.twitter.com/0Tne3LUx7O — Boxing on BT Sport 🥊 (@BTSportBoxing) June 22, 2019 ‘But I knew Tyson had it in the back of his mind that if he had the opportunity to break him physically, then he would. That wasn’t what I asked him to do.’ Davison’s corner instructions have been released since the fight, and the young trainer can be heard telling Fury to remain calm and hold back. Fury will fight Wilder in their rematch in the near future (picture: Getty) Fury had promised to put on a show for his bow on ESPN, and almost replicated Deontay Wilder’s one-round demolition of Dominic Breazeale. Wilder and Fury are now expected to fight each other early next year, but Top Rank boss Bob Arum recently admitted he might try and stage the rematch next, at the end of 2019.

Eddie Hearn has warned the WBC Dillian Whyte will not wait around for a heavyweight title shot and targeted the winner of Deontay Wilder vs Luis Ortiz. The ‘Bodysnatcher’ has been the number one contender to Wilder’s crown for more than 600 days as of this week and has grown impatient waiting for the Bronze Bomber. Dillian Whyte is desperate to get his hands on Deontay Wilder Whyte will face the dangerous Oscar Rivas on July 20 at the 02, but Hearn wants to see his fighter get a shot at the title. Wilder’s rematch with Ortiz is scheduled for later this year and the Matchroom director is desperate to see the Brixton brawler get his shot. “There’s a lot going on with the WBC,” he told talkSPORT. “I think the offer from the WBC, which is a final eliminator, is an interim world title fight. “That’s all fine, but it’s more about the timings. Wilder defended his WBC belt in May against Dominic Breazeale “This week marks 600 days Dillian Whyte has been WBC number one contender – it’s incredible. “So we are saying when? We are not waiting 800, 900, 1000 days so our campaign is that the winner of Wilder against Ortiz should fight the winner of Whyte vs Rivas. “Or if not, give us a time frame. We are doing absolutely everything and we will not stop till Dillian Whyte gets justice on this because I think the WBC are fair people. “Mauricio Sulaiman is a boxing guy through and through, I know he has been a bit upset by some of the comments, but they are nothing yet. Whyte knocked out Dereck Chisora in December, his last outing in the ring [bc_video video_id=”6044791547001″ account_id=”6023583704001″ player_id=”default” embed=”in-page” padding_top=”56%” autoplay=”” min_width=”0px” max_width=”640px” width=”100%” height=”100%” caption=”Deontay Wilder exclusively talks to talkSPORT and claims that Anthony Joshua is mentally broken “] “We have got to get our way and we are not even asking for a favour. We are just asking for what is fair. “And we thank the public for their support on this as well because that is important. Dillian Whyte has stepped up and fought everyone, this Rivas fight is a very tough fight on July 20 and it is a must-win fight that I believe will have a lot on the line in terms of the WBC position.” “This week marks 600 days that Dillian Whyte has been WBC number one.” “We’re not waiting 800 days. We want the winner of Wilder v Ortiz.” “We’re doing everything.” 👊@EddieHearn gives an update on @DillianWhyte’s future to talkSPORT. pic.twitter.com/AQFrqZ50FN — talkSPORT (@talkSPORT) June 20, 2019

Published on 20.06.2013 From: Hans Themistode The heavyweight division is currently unpredictable. Just a few weeks ago, former United Heavyweight Champion Anthony Joshua was considered superior. It was an understandable process of thought. After all, he was the owner of the IBF, WBA, WBO and IBO titles. On June 1, 2019, everything changed when Joshua […]

DILLIAN WHYTE could finally be mandatory challenger for the WBC title if he beats Oscar Rivas – having spent 600 days as the organisation’s No1 ranked challenger. Whyte, 31, has been top-ranked by the body since 2017 while holding their “Silver” title – but has always been overlooked as mandatory challenger. Whyte has been ranked as the WBC’s No1 challenger since 2017 but has always been overlooked as mandatory opponent Instead No4 ranked Dominic Breazeale was handed the shot at Deontay Wilder’s title after the rematch with Tyson Fury was shelved. The WBC reportedly offered to have Luis Ortiz and Whyte face off in a “second mandatory” eliminator – with the winner guaranteed the next shot at the title. But that failed to materialise and Wilder will now rematch Ortiz later this year, while Whyte meets unbeaten Rivas at the O2 Arena on April 20. Promoter Eddie Hearn told Sky Sports the London clash next month will have the “interim title” at stake – effectively securing the mandatory position for the winner. Hearn said: “We’re getting there, it’s very important that this is solved this week. “We know that the interim world title fight and mandatory position is there, it’s just when, when does that mandatory happen? “We will fight tooth and nail for Dillian Whyte on this. This week, it will be 600 days that he has been WBC No 1, it’s incredible, he deserves justice. “We are right now on the brink of making that happen. “All we’ve got to do is just confirm some very fair points and we can get rid of this whole mess and everyone can move on with their lives. “It’s very, very likely that the Rivas fight will be a final eliminator and for an interim world title.” Wilder, 33, has also announced he will rematch Fury, 30, if he is successful against Cuban veteran Ortiz – with the possibility of a trilogy bout to follow against the Brit.

That means Wilder and Fury will be free to complete their potential trilogy saga without the fear of a mandatory defence being called.

The Bronze Bomber still expects to unify the division (Picture: Getty) Deontay Wilder believes his knockout power still makes him the No.1 heavyweight in the division despite Tyson Fury making a real statement with his victory over Tom Schwarz. The lineal champion stopped his unbeaten German opponent in the second round in Las Vegas on Saturday night, justifying Ring Magazine’s decision to name him as the top heavyweight going into the fight. But WBC champion Wilder is adamant he is still the most thrilling and entertaining heavyweight on the planet, and says his own 137-second KO of Dominic Breazeale far outshined Fury’s performance. Fury stopped Schwarz in the second round after landing with a flurry of punches (Picture: Getty) He told The Athletic: ‘I set the standards very high. This all started being between me, (Anthony) Joshua and Fury, and they both felt obligated to compete against me. We all know I’m the most exciting heavyweight in boxing, period, and I knew I would be a hard act to follow. Asked who the No.1 heavyweight is, he continued: ‘Hands down, me. No question. That’s self-explanatory. You’ve got a guy with dramatic power in the heavyweight division when people come to see heavyweights do one thing: knock someone out. [metro-zone-post-strip] ‘They don’t want to see a 12-round fight. They get bored of that with the big boys. They look at our size, and they think, “We’re coming to see a body on the canvas.” That’s what people live for, especially when something goes viral. I give people that exciting, sitting-on-the-edge-of-their-seat moments. ‘This is what the heavyweight division is about, those moments of suspense, where, as a fan, if you take your focus off for one second – you look at your pizza, or go to the bathroom – you miss it, and you have to look back at the highlights. So hands down, my performance topped Fury’s.’ Wilder KO’d Breazeale with an explosive right hand in their fight last month (Picture: AP) Wilder will again do battle with Luis Ortiz later this year before a highly anticipated rematch against Fury, which is pencilled in for February or March of 2020, and he has every intention of maintaining his unbeaten record. He added: ‘I’m ready for the next fight, and I’m ready to be an undisputed unified champion. There will be one champion of the world. One face. One name. And he goes by the name of Deontay Wilder.’ [metro-tag-post-strip]
