Frank Warren has backed Fury to beat WBC mandatory challenger Whyte as the domestic rivals prepare for a title clash in the early months of next year
Tyson Fury ‘s co-promoter Frank Warren has backed him to make easy work of Dillian Whyte as the domestic rivals prepare for a potential title clash.
Whyte is next in for Fury’s WBC heavyweight title, despite pulling out of his October 30 fight with Otto Wallin.
WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman confirmed with talkSPORT last week that the British Boxing Board of Control sent adequate medical certification of Whyte’s withdrawal from the fight.
It means the WBC will move forward with Fury vs Whyte next and not reschedule a fight between Whyte and Wallin.
And Warren thinks how Fury and Whyte have dealt with mutual opponents reveals all on how their potential fight will go.

“I think he’ll do a job on him. I just look at the form line. I look at Dillian Whyte fighting Derek Chisora twice. I think the first fight Chisora nicked it, but the decision was given to Dillian,” he told iFL TV.
“The second fight, Derek was winning that fight till Dillian pulled it out the bag and done what he had to do, which was a good finish and he did that.
“Then I look at what Tyson did with Derek Chisora. I mean, that was a better Derek Chisora. That was a younger Derek Chisora. For me, Derek didn’t win a second of any round.
“Going into that fight I fancied Derek would give him a real problem and I fancied Derek may beat him, but Tyson done an absolute job on him.”
Whyte won the interim WBC heavyweight title in 2019 against Oscar Rivas.
He lost the belt in a shock knockout loss to Alexander Povetkin last August, but later avenged the loss and won back his belt in March.
The Brit has been waiting for his shot at the WBC title since 2017 after winning the silver title against Robert Helenius.

And Warren has praised Fury’s rise through the heavyweight ranks after defeating the likes of Wladimir Kiltschko and Deontay Wilder in their own backyards.
“It’s strange with Tyson, he’s like a 10-year overnight sensation. He’s done everything that’s been asked with him and he’s done it in different ways,” he continued.
“When you look at what he did with Klitschko, it was an out and out boxing lesson in the other guy’s backyard.
“Then he’s been to the States now and beat, again, the man in three entirely different types of fights against Deontay Wilder.
“All exciting, that’s how adaptable he is. He’s an unbelievable boxer Tyson, unbelievable fighter, unbelievable brawler when he wants to be.”
