Frank Warren Wants Dillian Whyte To Meet His Promotional Obligations
Frank Warren has made it clear that Dillian Whyte (28-2, 19 KOs) is extremely close to floating his publicity requirements.
Warren said in a recent interview that Whyte has violated some of the clauses in their bout agreement. This statement has come just less than two weeks before Whyte is scheduled to fight against Tyson Fury (31-0, 22 KOs).
“He is in his domain to do certain things. However, you can only call spade a spade, just like a breach of a contract is equivalent to a breach of a contract. He must show up and meet his obligations,” Warren said.
The founder of the Queensberry Promotions isn’t intimidated to express his dismay about Whyte’s stance. According to the reports, the British boxer refused to play his part in promoting — what Warren believes — is a defining moment for Whyte.
Fury’s WBC belt will be on the line as the Fury-Whyte bout will take place on April 23 at Wembley Stadium.
This fight has nearly sold out around 94,000 tickets.
Fury, a citizen from Manchester, hasn’t fought on his home soil since 2018.
