How Tyson Fury could be forced into shock FOURTH fight against Deontay Wilder if Dillian Whyte rejects 20 per cent purse

If Dillian White refuses to fight Tyson Fury, Deontay Wilder could be given another shot at winning back the incredible WBC heavyweight title.

The Bronze Bomber, who failed to defeat the Gypsy King in three of his bouts, had a disastrous exit in his bout of the October Trilogy.

Fury is then ordered to defend his leash against British compatriot Dillian White, who is the governing body’s interim champion.

But negotiations for a domestic dust-up have been delayed due to a dispute over money, with Body Snatchers demanding a 40 percent split.

White took the WBC to an arbitration case to increase his potential pay packet.

Fury’s US-based promoter Bob Arum then revealed that the unbeaten Mancunian was allowed by the WBC to search for a new challenger due to heavy demands from White.

It was announced on Thursday that Fury would have to give the former British champion only 20 per cent of his potential performance purse.

If the Jamaican-born knockout turns down a chance to meet Fury inside the square circle, the WBC could look down the rankings to settle a new fight.

And incredibly, Wilder, a native of Alabama, is No. 1 on the list.

However, it remains to be seen whether the American will take on his opponent for the fourth time since retiring earlier this month.

Should Wilder have the fight pass and he too declines the opportunity, Joyce could be given a shot at the famous belt.

The 2016 Olympic silver medalist is No. 2 in the WBC rankings, and a contest between him and Fury would be easy since they both share the same promoter in Frank Warren.

Again if that potential encounter happens, Andy Ruiz Jr. will be next in line.

And Arum has already insisted that the destroyer is a possible option for Fury with Finland’s Robert Helenius in 2022.

Fury is unlikely to secure an undisputed match-up next if he doesn’t fight White as unified WBA, WBO and IBF champion Alexander Usik looks to defend his stripes in his rematch against Anthony Joshua.
