Frank Warren, co-promoter of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, said that their team was not interested in the fight with Dillian White, who was left without an opponent after Alexander Povetkin tested positive for COVID-19.
“Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t Dillian White destroyed in his last fight? While he was the mandatory contender for the Tyson title, he constantly rang about it on every corner, threatening every lawsuit. stupidity, they organized a fight for him with Povetkin, which cut him right to the root, “- said Warren in an interview with Talk Sport.
“That’s all – he lost his chance. We don’t need him. We are now discussing Tyson’s fight with Kabayel. And if that doesn’t work out, then we’ll look for someone else, but it definitely won’t be Dillian White. What do we need? will it give?
They have a fighter – I can’t remember his name – in general, they have a fighter from Europe who, as they themselves declare, will be the next boxing star [вероятно, речь об Алене Бабиче – Прим. ред.] They all tried to set him up with Daniel Dubois. So put him in the ring with Dillian White. They are in the same training camp, so it won’t be difficult for them to organize this fight. They all said he was going to be a superstar, so let’s see what he is then. Let him come out to fight Dillian White. “
