Tyson Fury v Dillian Whyte: Eddie Hearn says purse bids set for Friday but March date 'unrealistic'

The mandatory challenger and interim champion Dillian Whyte has been ordered to fight Tyson Fury.

The purse bids are set for Friday, which means that Tyson Fury v Dillian Whyte is unlikely to happen in March.

The mandatory challenger was unable to agree to terms with the reigning champion after the WBC ordered a purse split.

"People keep talking about March dates, that's starting to look unrealistic for a fight of this magnitude," said Hearn.

Steve Bunce is a live boxer.

The target date was 26 March, but co-promoter Frank Warren said April was more likely.

Either March, April, or early May is possible. This is the time for the fight. It depends on what happens this week.

There are many conversations going on behind the scenes. Something could change at any time.

The time it took for the British man to get his shot at the world title is one of the reasons why he is in a dispute with the sanctioning body.

The fight will go ahead despite the disagreements between the two camps, according to the man who works with Whyte.

"You're talking about a lot of money, a difference of 25%," he said.

The normal split for mandatory challengers is more than 80%. The normal split for an interim champion is 45%. We feel that the time Dillian has had to wait is ridiculous.

It looks like Dillian Whyte will get his shot at the title, but we have to fight for his rights and make sure it's fair. It's not going to stop the fight.

Usyk v Joshua II is likely in April.

Anthony Joshua was defeated by Oleksandr Usyk.

Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk were expected to fight in April, according to Hearn.

Joshua lost to the Ukrainian in September and is trying to get back the titles.

The promoter said it was likely the second time would be the charm.

It's a must win for Anthony Joshua. I would love to see him win in the UK.

April is the most probable date. I think it will happen again in the UK. It would be a great place to revisit. Also Wembley.

The weather gets better in May once you start getting into April. We've had international offers.

There is still no official word on whether Joshua intends to split with Rob McCracken or if he will make changes to his training team.

I don't think this is a clear out to get rid of everyone. "I feel it's a change," he said.

He knows he needs to get this right. He has been working behind the scenes to make sure he builds the right environment and team.

Taylor and Serrano are on the verge.

The Ring lightweight champion isKatie Taylor.

The Irish boxer is going to fight the seven-weight world champion in the United States in April.

Serrano and Jake Paul are considered to be among the greatest female fighters of all time, and both women have seen their profile soar in the US since teaming up with each other.

Taylor's promoter, Eddie Hearn, said the agreement was "on the verge of completion" and that he was targeting a 30 April fight at Madison Square Garden.

"Taylor-Serrano, we are on the verge, right on the verge," he said. You could get an announcement as early as this week. It has been a long time since.

The fight is bigger than it has ever been. The target date is April 30. The big room is in the Madison Square Garden.

The people in charge of the company said a big room fight. This is a historic fight. It's never going to get bigger than this.
