Frank Warren mocks Dillian Whyte’s demands for a 60/40 split to fight Tyson Fury but refuses to rule out a fight in early 2022


Frank Warren says Dillian Whyte’s team requested a 60/40 split to fight Tyson Fury.

The Gypsy King successfully defended his WBC world heavyweight belt by overtaking Deontay Wilder last month and Whyte is the first to face him.

Whyte is the first in line to take on Fury but the WBC has not ordered a mandatory fight between the two

However, an arbitration case with the Body Snatcher must first take place before combat can be initiated.

He has a fight with Fury in early 2022, but Warren insisted that her man would fight whether Whyte can sort out his situation or not.

During Whyte’s arbitration hearing, Warren told talkSPORT Boxing, “It won’t impact Tyson.

“Tyson has made it clear that he wants to fight in late February / early March and that’s what we’re going to do.

“Tyson just wants to stay active, he’s only had one fight in 22 months. Whatever happens with Dillian Whyte, it will take its course.

“Tyson has to make a decision on who he’s going to fight, the decision will be his.

“We’re not going to be embarrassed by his problems. It is up to him to settle them.

“Tyson is the world champion, not Dillian Whyte. He doesn’t set the ground rules here, the champion does.

Warren added, “If everyone puts their sane heads on it for sure this is a fight that can be fought.

“Dillian’s team were talking 55/45, 60/40 – that’s not going to happen! He was eliminated two fights ago.

“Based on his latest handbag, he might not even get 80/20, not from us. Even if he wins the arbitration, he might even get less.
