Dillian Whyte wants Tony Bellew fight after David Haye withdraws

Published

Dillian whyte is hoping to take advantage of David Haye’s injury by setting up a bout with Tony Bellew.
Whyte only fought Robert Helenius last month but he has taken to Twitter to ask to step in as Haye’s replacement.

The Londoner withdrew today because he picked up an arm injury in training after falling down the stairs, which now requires an operation.

The pair were due to fight on December 17 at London’s O2 Arena but now it is unclear if the fight will go ahead.

Whyte, whose only career loss so far came against Anthony Joshua, took to social media to call out Bellew.
He also tagged promoter Eddie Hearn in his tweet to try and get the fight organised.

“Let’s not let the boxing fans down @EddieHearn I will fight Bellew @TonyBellew in December and beat him up even without a proper training camp @SkySportsBoxing,” Bellew tweeted.

Only last month Hearn proved he was able to re-organise a fight at the final hour, which proves that Bellew could still enter the ring next month.

IBF, IBO and WBA heavyweight champion Joshua defended his belts against a different opponent at short notice.
Kubrat Pulev was the mandatory challenger but after he withdrew from injury Carlos Takam stepped in.

At the time, Hearn said that he always has “contingency plans” in place, so it is yet to be seen if he has covered all corners on this occasion.

Bellew would not be short on options if he still wishes to enter the ring, as Tyson Fury also offered to step in.

The Gypsy King posted a video on social media today saying he is ready to fight if Bellew wants a new opponent.
