Dillian Whyte shouldn’t be fighting Otto Wallin next.
That’s the verdict from Frank Warren, the U.K. promoter of Tyson Fury, who will be heavily involved in negotiating a potential Whyte fight with Tyson Fury if he emerges victorious against the tough Swede on October 30th, exclusively live on DAZN.
Whyte, the WBC interim champion, is next in line for Fury following the latter’s epic win over Deontay Wilder last weekend.
The Brixton man has waited patiently for his world title opportunity and with the WBC extremely vocal in backing his cause, success against Wallin should earn him his shot. Warren is unsure about the potential banana skin.
“Well, that’s a tough fight,” said Warren when speaking to BoxingScene on Whyte vs. Wallin. “I mean, if I was him, I wouldn’t do the fight, but anyway, the fact is he’s got to beat Wallin and then we’ll see what the WBC says.
“It’s a massive fight but any fight for [Fury] now is a massive fight. You know, he’s shown what he’s made of. I mean, he’s a true, true warrior.”
