Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte have until Tuesday next week to agree a deal before purse bids will be ordered. This is the second time purse bids have been delayed as this deal looks further away from happening. With an ongoing legal situation between Whyte and the WBC still rumbling on due to the 80/20 split, the hopes of an all British clash looks far from happening. At the Leigh Wood vs Michael Conlan press conference, Eddie Hearn had confirmed that talks for Fury vs Usyk in the Middle East is something that is being discussed in the background. Tyson Fury is also linked with fighting UFC man mountain Francis Ngannou under boxing rules which only adds to the further complications.
Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte have until 6pm Tuesday (UK) until purse bids will be ordered ?????
