Tyson Fury vs. Dillian Whyte purse bid extended to Jan.26th

by Jack Ternan: WBC Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury’s money offer against mandatory Dillian White has been extended until January 26.

This is due to a deal being worked out for Anthony Joshua and Waite to step aside so that Fury (31-0-1, 22 KOs) and IBF/WBA/WBO champ Oleksandr Usyk can meet for the undisputed championship next.

There is interest from the Middle East in pushing Joshua and Waite to side so the boxing world can see the fight they are demanding between Fury and Usyk.

Joshua can make a lot of money

As of Thursday, Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn still thinks this is the most likely scenario, but he could be wrong. The money Joshua would make fighting the winner of the Fury vs Usic match would be huge, likely $50 million.

It’s an excellent deal for Joshua if he steps aside because he’s not only going to avoid an almost certain second loss to Osek, but rather he’ll be paid pretty well.

You are He could understand why Hearn might not be so happy About seeing Joshua step down because he won’t get a chance to avenge his loss to Usek last September. He desperately needs help getting his popularity back to what it was before that humiliating loss.

Joshua will continue to be seen as damaged goods For all intents and purposes so he can avenge that loss.

The best way for Joshua to reclaim his good standing with the boxing crowd is to avenge his loss to Usyk, but he won’t have a chance to do so anytime soon if the side deal goes through.

If the side deal can be carried out, Joshua (24-2, 22 KOs) and Whyte will sit on the sidelines and wait for the outcome of the Fury vs. Usyk. thought so Joshua will have his first molasses To fight the winner, White will get his chance next.

Warren seems optimistic

“All I can say is that everyone in boxing wants to see the unification match between Tyson and Osick. We hope we can cross the line; we’ll see,” promoter Frank Warren told iFL TV on Friday morning.

“I think everything will be revealed this evening. I literally can’t say anything at the moment. We’re still working on things today as we speak, and I don’t think she will reveal anything this evening.

I think over the weekend. we will Making some progress as we’re trying to get there. Fingers intertwined.

Hearn talks step aside

“A large amount of money is available,” Eddie Hearn to All Out Fighting said over reports of Joshua’s £15m bid and Dillian Whyte’s £5m bid to step aside, so a Fury vs. Undisputed Usyk then.

“There are people who want to achieve these ways, but it’s not just about the money. It’s about the plan. AJ’s not interested in giving him some money He says, “See you later, my friend.

“He wants to know what the actual plan is, and that’s the case with Dillian White, he’s been waiting a long time, and if he has to wait another two months, that’s fine, but how does it work?” Hearn said.

The plan is simple for Joshua. He’s paid to step down so that Fury can take on Usyk, after which the winner will fight for all the marbles. It might be a bitter pill for Joshua to swallow when he’s seen stepping aside, but in the end, it will be worth it to do so.

Instead of Joshua thinking of himself, he needs to look at the overall picture in terms of fans. The boxing world wants to see Fury facing Usyk now, because these two are the champions, and they’re both undefeated.

Joshua needs to put fans first rather than his own with his desire for revenge.

Joshua had his chance, lost twice, and his career seems murky. Even with Hearn working his magic in terms of matchmaking, it’s unlikely that he’ll be able to save Joshua’s career.

Whyte wants to make sure he gets his title, but if he’s going to charge £5m to wait, that’s a great deal for him.
