Former four-division champion Roy Jones Jr. accepts a standoff between UK rivals Tyson Fury, and Dillian Whyte will produce an excellent match inside the ring.
Whyte, and his promoter Eddie Hearn, anticipate that the World Boxing Council should arrange a mandatory match with Fury, who holds the WBC’s world title at heavyweight.
Jones seems to love the idea of the match and the Philippine boxing news fans couldn’t agree more.
“Let him fight Dillian Whyte, because that won’t be a stinker. Whyte is the puncher, Fury is the boxer. We expect Fury will win, but it won’t be a stinker because Dillian is dangerous every second,”
“That’s what we love. That’s why we loved the fight with Wilder, because he was dangerous every second. That’s boxing. So let’s keep people entertained.”
“Coming off a brilliant performance, you don’t want to bill a fight that’s a stinker. Both of these guys are mental boxers rather than physical boxers. A mental boxing match can be a stinker to the fans. With the heavyweight division being as hot as it is right now, we don’t need a stinker. Let’s keep it right,”
Jones doesn’t care for one battle is a unification among Fury and IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO world champion Oleksandr Usyk. He accepts their separate styles will make for an exhausting, tedious battle.
Fury recently defeated two knockdowns to score a shocking knockout of Deontay Wilder in the 11th round of their three-match set.
He will probably make his next defense in March or April. The match is accepted to be a mandatory defense, with Whyte being the frontrunner.
No WBC heavyweight title has been made since May of 2019 when Wilder took out Dominic Breazeale in one round.
