Dillian Whyte is looking at a number of options for his next fight and has welcomed the option of a final world title eliminator.

The British heavyweight knocked out Lucas Browne last week and is the mandatory challenger for the WBC belt.

However, Whyte could face Povetkin in a final elimination fight and could also face Pulev to be a contender for the IBF title.

“Everything is up in air at the minute, because there’s so much options and there’s lots of things going on,” Whyte told Sky Sports. “We’re just waiting to see which is the best move and the best date for us to go with right now. There’s a lot going on, a lot.

 

 

“The options are Deontay Wilder, a rematch with Anthony Joshua, possibly fighting Kubrat Pulev for a final eliminator and then I become mandatory challenger for Joshua, or maybe a voluntary fight.

“The WBC want me to probably fight a final eliminator against someone, which we don’t know yet. We’re trying to get them to enforce the mandatory and the WBA has come out a few days ago and said they want me to fight for their regular WBA world title.”

Whyte added: “It’s a very good fight, but they are talking about possibly going to Bulgaria to fight. What for?

 

“The profile, the money, the revenue, everything is in England, so why would I go and fight him in Bulgaria? But it’s a fight that I definitely want.

 

“It would secure me a place as mandatory challenger for the IBF, and it’s fight that I want. I believe I can beat Pulev all day long. At the O2, it’s a big fight.”
