Frank Warren gives update on Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte talks after WBC order

Tyson Fury has been ordered to enter negotiations with Dillian Whyte for a defence of his WBC heavyweight title.

And that’s exactly what we are doing now – discussing what could be the perfect homecoming for the Gypsy King.

Tyson has no fear of taking on any challenger so once the decision was made by the WBC we were ready for it.

He has already beaten the most dangerous puncher in the division twice – three times if you count the first fight he was robbed of a win in – so why would anyone pose a threat to him?

Whyte will get his chance once we come to an agreement on a deal and he will get to see what elite level heavyweight boxing is.

And I would love to put it on in the UK in February or March.

It will be nearly four years since Tyson has fought on these shores after he has gone over and conquered America.

The decision on where it ends up will come down to a number of factors, though.

I’m sure there will be plenty of interest from abroad, too.

So it now looks like it will be Whyte next for the Gypsy King and then we will move onto the undisputed showdown in the summer against Oleksandr Usyk or Anthony Joshua.

These are exciting times for the heavyweight division.

And at light-heavyweight, things are bubbling nicely too after Anthony Yarde’s emphatic victory over Lyndon Arthur.

What a fine performance from the Londoner to get revenge against the Manchester man inside four rounds.

I knew Anthony had that in his locker and I’ve been pleading with him to bring it out for ages now.

I’m sure if he boxed like that against Sergey Kovalev then he would already be world champion.

He definitely would have beaten Arthur first time round, too.

Anthony didn’t look to load up on his shots, he picked the best ones to throw and his head movement was great.

Now he is ready for another crack at a world title and it will be against the winner of Callum Johnson against WBO champion Joe Smith Jnr.
