DILLIAN WHYTE is ready to step in and fight Tyson Fury if Deontay Wilder pulls out with injury.
The trilogy scrap between Fury and Wilder is scheduled for July 25, but is likely to be moved due to the coronavirus.
But Wilder has revealed he had surgery on his bicep after he was battered into submission and a seventh-round pull-out against Fury in February.
The American is rehabilitating at home during the lockdown, but Whyte, who has called out Wilder for years, believes he might not even be "ready by October".
And WBC's mandatory challenger Whyte is ready to finally be rewarded with a shot at the iconic green belt.
Why wouldn't he want to fight me instead of waiting for an injured Wilder to recover?
Speaking to Sky Sports, the 32-year-old said: "Why don't we just get it on. He [Fury] just talks rubbish.
"I don't want to talk s*** about this, that or whatever. All I want to do is fight these guys.
"Let's just have the fight. Like he said to Deontay Wilder, 'It's only a fight, you win some, you lose some.' It's just a fight.
"Why wouldn't he want to fight me instead of waiting for an injured Wilder to recover, as he may not even be ready by October due to the severity of his injury."
Whyte is clearly frustrated at seeing potential heavyweight scraps his the buffers.
He has been angling for a rematch against fellow Brit Anthony Joshua after being stopped in the seventh round of their 2015 scrap.
Most recently Brixton's Bodysnatcher has called out former heavyweight world champ Andy Ruiz Jr for a fight.
But the Mexican, who lost his rematch in meek style to Joshua in December, looks set to fight veteran Luis Ortiz instead.
This has led Whyte to labelling Ruiz Jr a coward as well as a "fat c***" recently.
The Brit has even leaked details of an offer from his promoter Eddie Hearn to Team Ruiz Jr to make the fight happen.
