(Reuters) - American Dominic Breazeale and Briton Dillian Whyte have been ordered to fight by the World Boxing Council to determine the mandatory challenger to heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder, the WBC said on Tuesday.

American Wilder retained his title after a controversial split decision draw with Britain's Tyson Fury last December and the WBC quickly sanctioned a direct rematch, further delaying a defence against mandatory challenger Breazeale.
