Mauricio Suleiman the head of WBC is currently avoiding clear statements on whether the unification fight of heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs) will be a “priority” over the mandatory defense of the title against Dillian Whyte (27-1, 18 KOs).
Derek Chisora is ready to help Alexander Povetkin in his preparation for the fight against Dillian Whyte. Povetkin’s duel with Whyte was planned this month, but it was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. There is a preliminary date in July, which, most likely, will not work either. The most likely date for today is late July or early August. Chisora has already spoken with Povetkin about flying to Russia, in order to help him preparing for Whyte.
July 18 will be the first night of boxing by Eddie Hearn after the break caused by the coronavirus pandemic. This will be the first Matchroom Boxing event in the open air to be shown with drones.
Eddie Hearn shared fresh plans for organizing first boxing events since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. Head of Matchroom Boxing intends to organize four evenings in July at his family estate in Brentwood, Essex. The ring will be installed in the garden, and the entire service team and fighters will be accommodated a few days before the fight in a nearby hotel.
Dillian Whyte (26-1, 18 KOs) announces his willingness to fight WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (30-0-1, 21 KOs). Theoretically, the “King of the Gypsies” in his next fight should meet Deontay Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs), but due to the coronavirus pandemic, meetings of boxers from different continents are currently impossible.
