While the victor would become mandatory challenger, they may have to wait until the second half of 2020 for a title shot.
"Hopefully he brings the WBC belt back to England and eventually I get to fight for the title". I'm taking Whyte on points, although there's a chance Rivas could score an early knockout if Dillian's team get their tactics wrong.
"Tyson Fury is a good fighter but he's inconsistent in what he says and does", Whyte said. The first three shows have all had shocks in them and I expect the same from this one and some big hitting action too in the 200lbs division. "I've been asked to explore them, which we've been doing this week and at the weekend we will be making the decision".
'How can you be No 1 and the champion not fight you? I was plodding along and I thought: 'I want better than this.' I have bought my own house. I've had opportunities with the WBC, the IBF removed me from their rankings but they were messing me about and then the WBO.
"I'm not trying to cheat my way to the title". "I am looking forward to showing people what I can do".
Wilder (41-0-1, 40 KOs), 33, from Alabama, makes a 10th title defence against Cuba's Miami-based Luis Ortiz on September 28 and, assuming Wilder is successful, he is then expected to face Fury (28-0-1, 20 KOs), 30, again. It's worth remembering Oscar was a significant amateur, representing Columbia in the unpaid ranks and was good enough to beat Andy Ruiz Jr in the vest.

Janet Jackson, 50 Cent Perform at Jeddah World Fest
Earlier this month, the Human Rights Foundation asked the US artists, including Minaj, to not perform at the festival because of the country's treatment toward women and LGBTQ people.
"I think sometimes the criticism is fights at the O2 are one sided, and you've seen so many times, guys at 7,8,9 to 1, going in and causing what we think is an upset, but in boxing terms it's not seen to be so much of an upset".
During the seven rounds in which it lasted, Whyte managed to wobble Joshua in the second stage of the fight, before being put away with a vicious uppercut 15 minutes later. We should fight now'. "Ali, Spinks, Tyson, Lewis, Holyfield - they fought all comers".
But an openness on social media, coupled with a run of four straight wins, has endeared him to fans, who bullishly sang "there's only one Dave Allen" after his impressive win over Lucas Browne in April.
The 32-year-old Colombian said: "Whyte is a really strong guy, but I think with my technique, my speed, my power, my experience, I'm going to get on top".
To be viewed as one of the sport's greats in the United Kingdom, one could argue that snugly aligning yourself with the ravenous boxing public in this country is a smart way to go about it - and Whyte's in-ring style does just that. Dillian has come on from that night and I feel he has an opportunity to now set the world alight against a very live and risky opponent in Oscar Rivas.
"He's hungry and he's a good mix of all the styles I've faced so far".
