Dillian Whyte has joined Eddie Hearn in warning Frank Warren and Bob Arum to expect a massive bidding war for promotional rights if their promised fight with Tyson Fury continues next spring.

The mega-million result would also decide whether that world heavyweight title fight would be televised live on PPV on BT Sport in the UK and ESPN in the US or on DAZN on both sides of the Atlantic.

Hearn “hopes” to confirm Whyte as a mandatory challenger for the WBC title at that organization’s annual convention in Mexico City next month.

Whyte expresses his’ gratitude ‘for Hearn’s efforts and his’ sense of loyalty’ but adds: ‘I have to put myself first when it comes to the fight I’ve wanted all my life.

‘I can’t let a television network get in the way of my opportunity to prove myself against the champion who is now called the world’s greatest heavyweight. The chance to become The Man. It all depends on who gets the most money. ‘

Fury has yet to decide if he will need an interim fight before facing the winner of Anthony Joshua’s rematch with Olexsandr Usyk for the undisputed world heavyweight championship next summer.

Hearn says: ‘Dillian has waited a long time for his mandatory shot and we will do everything we can to help him.

Hearn has said he will do 'everything he can' to earn Whyte his mandatory shot at the belt.

‘We hope to enter into negotiations in November. If Arum and ESPN make a great offer to Dillian that is acceptable to him, we at Matchroom would give him our full support.

‘If not, it will go to massive tenders because this is a great fight for Britain and great all over the world. We can expect revenue of around £ 35 million for UK pay-per-view.

Tyson is believed to want a homecoming fight in Britain after a few years of campaigning in the US and this one would fill Wembley in late March or early April. Or Old Trafford if that’s your preference.

Joshua’s bid for redemption after his lackluster loss of his belts to Usyk is also likely to take place in London in the same time frame, making for a truly heavyweight spring here.

Whyte arrived in London on Thursday from his training base in Portugal to protest against doubts that a shoulder injury led him to withdraw from his fight against Otto Wallin at this Saturday’s show at the O2, rather than a reluctance. to risk his mandatory WBC status.

He said: ‘I needed this fight. I have often boxed with injuries and would have done it again until the doctor ordered me not to. Look at how great I am. I was ready to knock him out. ‘

Wallin has demanded an independent examination of the shoulder and Hearn confirmed: “We have sent the full medical report to the British Boxing Control Board.”
