Dillian Whyte frustrated by lack of title chances

Dillian Whyte is fed up of waiting for a heavyweight world title shot.

The British boxer kept his dreams on track with a rematch win over Alexander Povetkin at the weekend, although his path to a title belt remains blocked by Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury.

Having seen two boxers he considers to be inferior fighters in Eric Molina and Dominic Breazeale get title shots, Whyte is exasperated that he is yet to get a chance.

He told Sky Sports: "I’ve waited long enough.

"There’s no reason I should wait anymore. Why should I wait anymore? Look at Eric Molina – he’s had two world title shots. Dominic Breazeale – two, three. All of these guys, and they’re nobodies compared to me. I came up the ranking the proper way. You know, I was number one challenger and mandatory, and they gave the [WBC title] fight to Dominic Breazeale, who was ranked number three or number five. It’s crazy."

Whyte is likely to have to wait until Joshua and Fury have fought twice before getting his title shot and joked that he may have to take action himself so he can win a belt.

He quipped: "I’ll just break Joshua’s leg, man, so they can’t make the fight. Then after, I’ll just stand [in] and fight Fury."
