Warren: Fury won't wait for Wilder until February

It seems that Tyson Fury's team (30-0-1, 21 KOs) has no consensus on the sporting future of the King of the Gypsies. In his next performance the Briton will have to fight Deontay Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs), but the promoters of the two champions cannot agree on when this duel should take place. Bob Arum, due to the lack of an opportunity to organize a fight with the audience, is ready to wait until next year, and Frank Warren insists on closing the trilogy no later than December.

“It's simple - Top Rank and Queensbury have promoter rights for Tyson Fury, so everyone should agree to the fight. Bob [Arum] says it won't be until February. It's never gonna happen. Tyson won't sit around until February!” Warren told Boxing Social.

"I'll tell you how it will be: there are contractual obligations and the duel of Wilder and Fury will take place no later than December," added the British promoter of the King of the Gypsies, who also prefers the option of a unification fight against Anthony Joshua (23-1, 21 KOs), bypassing mandatory WBC challenger Dillian Whyte (27-1, 18 KOs).

“Whyte can wait, but for now, let's fight Daniel Dubois. Wouldn't that be interesting?" Frank Warren offered.
