Frank Warren wants no sight of Fury v Whyte
Queensbury Promotions’ Frank Warren has made it clear his fighter’s, WBC heavyweight champion Tyson “Gypsy King” Fury (30-0-1, 21ko), plans are to fight the trilogy with Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder (42-1-1, 41ko). Then, if victorious, face Anthony “AJ” Joshua (23-1, 21ko) for undisputed. This goes against everything that WBC President Mauricio Suliamán has stated. He says that the winner of the Fury v Wilder trilogy must face mandatory challenger Dillian “The Body Snatcher” Whyte (27-1, 18ko).
The deadline date for the mandatory fight is set to take place no later than February 2021. However, legendary promoter Bob Arum has hinted that mandatories shouldn’t get in way of big fights and that The Gypsy King should be allowed to pursue undisputed after the trilogy bout.
Warren, in an interview with talkSPORT, took things a step further.
“He ain’t fighting Dillian Whyte. That ain’t happening this year and I’ve got to tell you next year it ain’t gonna happen.”
“Because all he wants to fight, he wants Anthony Joshua.”
Wait, there is more; the British promoter wasn’t done at all.
“I don’t want it getting ruined by any other crap. Of course Dillian wants his fight and I get it. But that, for me, is like a pimple on a rhinoceros’ ass compared to seeing this fight.”
Strong words! Now it’s going to be a wait and see situation. Will the WBC once again push back their own ruling or will they put their foot down?
