Frank Warren admitted that Tyson Fury might take on Dillian Whyte next, but wondered why Eddie Hearn had yet to secure a world title fight for his client.
“The Bodysnatcher” returns to the ring on October 30 to face Otto Wallin, defending his “interim” WBC belt.

Whyte had been ranked as the No. 1 contender by the organization for nearly three years, but never earned a world heavyweight title.
In 2019, he received an offer of £ 4million to face Anthony Joshua at Wembley in a rematch of their 2015 classic, but snubbed the Matchroom Boxing deal.
Instead, he chose to cross a gauntlet of heavyweight contenders and then lost his ranking when he was unceremoniously stopped by Alexander Povetkin.
During the same period, Fury came back from the brink of extinction to reclaim the world heavyweight title and establish himself as the greatest of the era, much to the chagrin of his critics.

The WBC has confirmed it will order Fury to defend his belt against the winner of the October heavyweight showdown.
Still, Warren insists that there is a rematch clause for Whyte if he loses the fight, which means the stipulation is pretty void in Wallin’s case.
And the legendary promoter insists he has no sympathy for Whyte in his plight, although he would be happy to make the fight.
“If he goes through Wallin and the WBC orders it, that’s something Tyson has to consider,” Warren told White and Jordan.

“Does he deserve it?” He’s been sitting there for three years, but why hasn’t his promoter sorted him out for a world title fight?
“He had an opportunity, Tyson came back after three years and in three years we got him a world title fight. It’s like that.
“AJ was there and until Usyk he had world titles. Why haven’t they started the fight? I’m not sympathetic to where Dillian Whyte is.
“He didn’t watch, it’s not up to me. “
Warren added, “I think it would be orderly. Ultimately, that’s Tyson’s decision.
