Dillian Whyte is willing to give Tyson Fury an immediate rematch if he wins tonight.

The Body Snatcher, 34, challenges the Gypsy King, 33, for the WBC heavyweight world title at Wembley Stadium later today.

Despite being the underdog, Whyte is confident of pulling off an upset against Fury, saying he wants to do it again if he emerges victorious.

And if he does somehow manage to do the unthinkable, Fury won’t be entitled to a rematch as there is no clause in the contract saying otherwise.

But the Brixton banger has revealed he will be happy to bend the rules if he wins as long as ‘it’s a good fight’.

“There’s no rematch clause when you’re the mandatory challenger, but if I win on Saturday and it’s a good fight, I’ll fight him again,” Whyte told reporters (via The Mirror).

“I’m not someone to run away from fights, I want to fight the best fights. I don’t care what people think or care about me, I just want the best fights and give the fans the best.

“That’s what I want to do. I don’t want to fight someone nobody cares about and then go ‘I made this number of defences of the title’. I want to fight the best guys.

“I want to fight the best. People say Tyson Fury is the best fighter of all time. Most guys believe that.

“So why would I not want to fight the best fighter of all time again? For me, that’s amazing. Imagine that. I’m easy if I beat the best of all time.”

Fury is widely recognised as the number one heavyweight boxer in the world today.

However, Whyte insists that he is ready for whatever Fury throws his way, having spent the past few months training in Portugal sparring Skylar Lacy and Viddal Riley.

Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: “We’ve had different sparring partners and different things.

“We’re trying to cover every angle because he’s unpredictable.

“He can be unpredictable so we’re just trying to be as ready as we can be, trying to create all different kinds of circumstances, different situations so whatever he brings, we’ll be ready.

“One of the biggest mistakes people make is that they wait for something and then when they get there, they just blow up and being too much like ‘I’m here, I’m here!’ No.

“I’m trying to get the job done. When I get the job done then I’ll start acting crazy but now, I need to be focused on the job. Not ‘wow, I’m here!’ Just focus on the job, win the fight then afterwards you can do whatever you want.”
