Eddie Hearn Responds to Frank Warren Dismissing a Rematch Clause

The WBC heavyweight champion Tyson “The Gypsy King” Fury (31-0-1, 22ko) is looking to defend the title against Dillian “The Body Snatcher” Whyte (28-2, 19ko). Then unified champion Oleksandr Usyk (19-0, 13ko) will rematch Anthony “AJ” Joshua (24-2, 22ko), so all roads towards undisputed point towards 2022. However, DAZN promoter Eddie Hearn points at the “no rematch clause” comment by Queensberry Promotions’s Frank Warren as not doing a good job for his fighter.

The WBC finally decided to call for mandatory challenger Whyte to get that elusive title opportunity. During an interview on TalkSport, Warren claims that a rematch clause is not something they are interested in doing for Fury versus Whyte.

“No. No, let’s get it on. I don’t think we need a rematch.”

Typically promoters negotiate for a rematch clause as part of the contract. Thus, giving the former champion a chance at immediately regaining the title.

The thinking behind Warren’s statement is his supreme confidence in Fury’s ability to easily defeat the Body Snatcher.


Upon hearing that statement, in an interview with Behind the Gloves, Hearn called it foolish. Yet, he also claims that they would not have gotten one anyway.

“I mean, they wouldn’t get one! That’s not doing a very good job for their client. If Tyson Fury gets knocked out and doesn’t have a rematch clause, it might have been a good idea to negotiate one. But, I don’t think Dillian Whyte would give him one anyway.” 

“Frank Warren is saying, ‘Eddie Hearn gets rematch clauses. We don’t need a rematch clauses.’ Okay, but when they trade up left hooks, and Dillian Whyte knocks Tyson Fury out, see if they should have gotten a rematch clause. But, to be honest with you, waste of time. Dillian Whyte won’t give him one anyway.”

Hearn’s critique of his rival’s statement is a bit disingenuous because, as he openly admitted, they wouldn’t agree to a rematch clause. It appears he agrees with Warren’s statement despite the unnecessary criticism.
