The Gypsy King retained his crown by strong knockout back in October last year, with unity against then-champion Anthony Joshua looked up.

AJ is finally lost the right to defend his own title against Oleksandr Usyk and now the pair are ready for a rematch, so Fury’s attention has turned Dillian Whyte as he put his belt on the rope again.

Whyte was named a mandatory competitor by the WBC on December 7th, but the war has run into some trouble since then.

The 6ft 9in undefeated striker wants Whyte to accept around £5m to step aside and let him fight Usyk.

But Whyte’s team dug into how their man wanted a chance at Fury’s belt – and they seem to have finally granted their wish.

After FOUR wallet bids were delayed for the clash – the final auction is now scheduled for Mexico City for Friday, January 28 – Fury thinks the negotiations are over and Whyte has been hit.

The giant Morecambe boomed: “I can’t wait to punch Dillian Whyte in the face, man.

“I’ll give him the best cover-up he’s ever had in his life.

“Dillian Whyte, train hard because you’ll be destroyed, you bastard.”

When is Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte?

  • However, there is still no confirmed date for the all-England showdown.
  • But if it is done, it is expected by the end of March/April of this year.
  • Fury has not fought in England since 2018 when he faced Sefer Seferi in Manchester and then Francesco Pianeta in Belfast.

What is the battle site?

The most likely venue for the event is reported as Cardiff or Manchester, but none of the details are set in stone.

If Fury returns to his roots in the Northwest this will be his first appearance there in three years since the victory over Seferi.

And both venues will be great news for fans of the UK match, with the match likely to come at a friendlier time than the epic 5am GMT against Wilder.

Which TV channel and live stream will it be broadcast on?

Again, without specifics, everything at the moment is just speculation about the war.

Make sure you check back to SunSport regularly for all the latest information.

But the match is almost certainly a pay-per-view event, and what platform it is displayed on will depend on who drives the fight.

Fury vs Wilder 3 costs £24.95 to watch on BT and we expect something similar for this all-England title clash.

Eddie Hearn said: “I don’t think Tyson Fury will care who drives the fight.

“He will only think about who puts the most money, and if I was the one fighting in this situation, I would just see who put the most money on the fight.

“But I have no problem with Dillian fighting on another advertiser’s show, and we’ll be by his side promoting him and behind his back but he wants to do it. in a Matchroom program.”

What did they say

Tyson Fury: “All of them are just an exercise for me, I will destroy every man that comes in front of me.

“I’m an easy battle anyway, [Dillian Whyte] is really ideal.

Honestly, I’m carrying heavy bags on my feet. [He’s] ideal candidate. ”

Dillian Whyte: “Fury has been tasked with fighting me twice.

“He asked for the WBC ‘Diamond’ belt to fight me, but ran away when they agreed. He kept making excuses.

“Hopefully he has no choice now. What will he do? Throw the belt in the bin and run away with more money than he has to fight Wilder?

“[Of course] I will finish him off.”
