Dillian Whyte and Dominic Breazeale are two of the top heavyweights in the WBC, but with titleholder Deontay Wilder looking to fight Tyson Fury next, the two contenders are interested in fighting each other.
Both Breazeale and Whyte spoke to Sky Sports and each said the two would not be opposed to facing each other in the ring. Breazeale, the mandatory challenger to the WBC title, is coming off a stay-busy fight against Carlos Negron on the undercard of a PBC on Fox card in December.
"I would definitely be open to negotiations. I know we started the early part of last year with negotiations and I have no problem picking back up again and getting back under way," Breazeale said.
As for Whyte, the British heavyweight did recently say he was given an offer to fight unified champion Anthony Joshua, but was not happy with the initial offer. Whyte also commented on the potential fight against Breazeale and also would like to see it happen. The once-beaten Whyte added that he had no problem going to the United States for a fight, but can offer Breazeale more for a fight in the United Kingdom.
"I definitely want to fight Breazeal. It doesn't need to be PBC, it can be Matchroom and Sky Sports. If he wants to fight, we can fight. It's an easy fight to make, let's make it. Let's do it, end of April, or early May. I will fight him in America, but what can he offer me to come to America? I'll offer him more to come to the UK," Whyte said.
Wilder and Fury fought to a draw in the main event of a pay-per-view card in Los Angeles this past December. The WBC recently ordered a rematch with a February 5 deadline for the two to come to terms for the fight or else a purse bid will be conducted.
