DILLIAN WHYTE has revealed he could be set to meet Bermane Stiverne in a final eliminator for the WBC world heavyweight title currently held by Deontay Wilder.

The Brixton slugger outpointed Dereck Chisora in one of the best fights of the year earlier this month, in what was a regular WBC eliminator.

Stiverne was scheduled to face Alexander Povetkin for the right to become WBC mandatory challenger but rightfully walked away from the fight when the Russian failed a drug test.
