Whyte: I laid out Fury!

Whyte: I laid out Fury! Dillian Whyte says he "laid out" Tyson Fury in a sparring session as a war of words intensifies between the British heavyweight rivals. The Brixton man's status as the WBC No 1 challenger is at stake against Oscar Rivas at The O2 on July 20, live on Sky Sports Box Office, and victory could put Whyte on a collision course with Fury. WBC champion Deontay Wilder is set to face Fury in a rematch, with Whyte hoping to secure a shot at the winner, and 'The Body Snatcher' has reluctantly given his account of a spar with his fellow Brit after being angered by recent comments.

Whyte was 18st 2lbs and Rivas was 17st 1lbs - both contenders were in prime condition during their final face-off before Saturday's fight, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

Both men then refused to concede any ground and shoved their foreheads together in an intense show of force.

Whyte: I had reasons to retire

Whyte: I had reasons to retire Dillian Whyte admits there were "so many reasons" to walk away from boxing, but insists his personal struggle is part of becoming a top heavyweight contender. The Brixton man battles Rivas at The O2 on Saturday night, live on Sky Sports Box Office, as Whyte attempts to stay in line for a long-awaited world title shot. Since his sole defeat to Anthony Joshua in 2015, Whyte has overcome a serious shoulder injury and a succession of dangerous opponents, but is yet to receive a fight against WBC champion Deontay Wilder, despite his lengthy spell as the WBC's No 1 ranked contender.

They were yanked apart but Whyte and Rivas maintained eye contact, 24 hours out from the first punch being thrown.

Whyte's weigh-in result had initially been announced as 18st 7lbs but he confirmed to Sky Sports that was an error, and he was actually five pounds lighter.

But he was still over a stone heavier than his unbeaten opponent Rivas, to add to a height advantage of three inches and a reach advantage of one inch.

Whyte was marginally heavier than before his previous fight, against Derek Chisora, when he weighed-in at 17st 8lbs but he had told Sky Sports this week of his plan to arrive around the 18st mark.

'Wilder-Fury not happy about Whyte'

'Wilder-Fury not happy about Whyte' Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury will not have welcomed a WBC ruling that the winner of their rematch must fight Dillian Whyte, says promoter Eddie Hearn. Whyte can secure the WBC 'interim' belt and a mandatory WBC heavyweight title fight if he defeats Oscar Rivas at The O2 on Saturday night, live on Sky Sports Box Office. WBC champion Wilder is set to fight Tyson Fury in early 2020, provided the American overcomes Luis Ortiz later this year, and Whyte could be lying in wait for the 'Bronze Bomber' or his British rival.
