Matchroom Boxing head honcho Hearn, Whyte's fight promoter, has claimed that the WBC are expected to order the fight during their upcoming convention in November.

Speaking to iFL TV, Hearn said: "I’m not ruling out that fight [between Whyte and Wallin]. But the WBC has also made their statements that the interim world champion [Whyte] fights Tyson Fury.

"So there’s a lot going on behind the scenes with the lawyers and everything. But I would think Dillian Whyte’s next fight will be Tyson Fury.

"We’ll have to see. I’m not ruling out the Wallin fight. That’s a fight that is our discretion to reschedule."

The 33-year-old was the mandatory challenger to the winner of the fight between Fury and Deontay Wilder at the beginning of October and it is likely that the bout will take place at some point next year.

Whyte recently had to pull out of his fight with Otto Wallin, which had been scheduled for 30 October, due to a shoulder injury and he may not choose to reschedule in order to wait for his impending fight with Fury.

News of a Fury-White clash will, of course, cause uproar in the Otto Wallin camp.

Despite this, there are doubts over Fury's stance and whether he actually wants to fight Whyte.

The 'Gypsy King' is currently enjoying some much-needed family time following his win over Deontay Wilder and is rumoured to be earmarking the winner of Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua's rematch, rather than focus on any other fighter.
