Tyson Fury has plans to fight three times next year, says Bob Arum
According to Arum, Fury would like his next fight to be against Dillian Whyte
Tyson Fury has plans to fight three times in 2022 and would like his first to be against Dillian Whyte according to his American promoter, Bob Arum.
Talks between the 'Gypsy King' and Whyte have been underway for some time and Arum has said that his prized asset would be interested in the prospect of a fight with Whyte.
Speaking to talkSPORT he said: "That is what I would like to see and what he would like to see.
"And he wants to do at least three fights in 2022, hopefully that is how it will roll out and Fury is ready to fight anybody.
"I really believe that Fury is the pre-eminent heavyweight in the world and there is nobody out there that he would be reluctant to fight.
"I think Dillian Whyte should be the next fight for Tyson Fury but there is talk about Usyk who beat Joshua, but Joshua is not going to step aside until he is guaranteed the winner of Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk.
Meanwhile Fury's UK-based promoter, Frank Warren, has claimed they are only willing to offer Whyte a 20 per cent split of the fight and that they do have alternatives if a deal can't be agreed.
He said: "We are talking to Dillian's people but he starts at ten per cent. At best he can expect an 80-20 per cent split in Tyson's favour because he only got £300,000 for his last fight and the WBC make judgments according to sales power.
"Three hundred grand? That bum's not worth three hundred quid. We'll see if how much he wants a title fight?
'We can't wait forever, Tyson needs to fight in February or early March. Joe Joyce is one of several alternates."
