Warren told Fight Night: “I don’t think anything will happen until the WBC has their convention, which is later this month and I don’t think that’s going to happen until then.
“There’s no rush and there’s no rush from Tyson’s perspective. As I’ve said to everybody, it doesn’t matter what anybody says. He will do what he wants to do.
“If the deal is right he’ll do it. If he doesn’t want to do it, he won’t do it. He’s his own man.”
There’s also some doubt over whether Whyte will take on Fury as he was due to fight Otto Wallin in November but had to withdraw due to injury. Wallin and his team want to rearrange the fight with the winner going on to face Fury.
The bout Fury arguably really wants is Joshua but that is dependent on the outcome of his Usyk rematch. When Joshua lost to the Ukranian in September, Fury was “absolutely wounded”.
