Notorious boxing promoter Frank Warren has said that the highly anticipated All-British fight between WBC champion Tyson Fury and his mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte has been targeted for Cardiff, Wales.
Warren, who’s the co-promoter of “The Gypsy King” believes such a fight can be made for the spring of 2022. Good news is the two side have begun discussions – with their biggest obstacle being the monetary split between the two fighters. Fury’s team strongly feels that Whyte is entitled to no more than an 80-20 split of the money.
Warren believes Cardiff’s 75,000-seat stadium makes the most sense for a March date.
“You’ve got to be realistic and look at the time of the year. First of all, of course it’s a stadium fight but to put it in any stadium that doesn’t have a roof and unfortunately none of them have got roofs other than Cardiff,” Warren told Talk Sport.
“That’s where we are. March is, we won’t exactly be out in our shorts will we? And football season is on, so that will be a problem with nearly all the grounds. So, Cardiff would look to be the favorite.”
Because the contest is a mandatory fight, and Fury’s team is so confident of victory, there is likely not going to be a rematch clause.
“No, we’ll just get it on. I don’t think we’ll need a rematch,” Warren said.
