WBC order Dillian Whyte vs Dominic Breazeale

Dillian Whyte and Dominic Breazeale have been ordered to fight by the WBC for an interim heavyweight title.

Both Whyte and Breazeale have suffered the only defeat of their career to IBF, WBA and WBO world champion Anthony Joshua and victory for either would put them in contention for a world title shot.

The pair failed to agree terms when talks were held over a potential bout last year, but with a shot at Deontay Wilder's WBC title likely to be at stake this time around, there is plenty of motivation to make the fight.

Whyte took to his Twitter account shortly after the WBC released a statement, expressing apparent excitement at the announcement.

Joshua knocked out Whyte in December 2015, and beat Breazeale by the same method six months later, but both men have responded well to defeat.

Breazeale has strung together three victories to boast a record of 20-1-KO18, while Whyte has won on nine occasions to improve his overall record to 25-1-KO18.

Should be a good scrap, I'm not too sold on Breazeale at the moment though. :chin

Im not getting how Brezeale was put in as mandatory for Wilder, when he is ranked 3rd and Whyte is number 1; this will make things a little clearer!!
