Boxing: According to Top Rank CEO Todd DuBoef, Tyson Fury’s top objective is a quick return to the ring, but a bout with Dillian Whyte would be a “terrific match” while talks are still underway.
Whyte has been chosen the mandatory challenger to Fury’s heavyweight belt, and the WBC has ordered them to begin discussions for a title match.
As a result, Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk are anticipated to advance in their rematch for the IBF, WBA, and WBO belts.
About Whyte as an opponent, Top Rank’s DuBoef, who promotes Fury in the United States, stated, “It makes a lot of sense.”
“For Tyson’s homecoming, we’re working hand-in-hand with him.”
In October, Fury finished his epic trilogy with Deontay Wilder with a second consecutive stoppage win, and his major goal now is to make a rapid comeback, regardless of who he fights.
“Tyson told us, ‘I want to fight by March,'” DuBoef added.
“He doesn’t give a damn who he fights. We’re aiming to keep him in the ring.
“We may fight in the first part of next year in the UK, and Whyte is a fantastic fighter.”
“As soon as possible, we want to finish the date and get him in the ring.”
There has been talking that Joshua would elect to “stand aside” from his rematch with Usyk, allowing the Ukrainian to fight Fury for the undisputed title.
“The rematch [with Joshua] is the basic framework,” Usyk’s promoter Alexander Krassyuk previously stated.
“Why wouldn’t Fury respect Whyte?” questioned Top Rank promoter Bob Arum before.
“Bombs are thrown by heavyweights. He’ll be in a lot of trouble if he doesn’t respect him.
“Fury is a seasoned pro and a formidable fighter, and he understands that a man like Whyte should not be underestimated.”
“Right now, we’re talking to Whyte about putting the fight on in the UK.”
“It’ll be a fantastic fight, and we’re hard at work putting it together.”
