Frank Warren, co-promoter of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, has revealed that his company is currently in talks with the attorney for Dillian Whyte in order to finalize the event details for their mandatory fight.

At the WBC's recent purse bid, Warren's company stamped down a record breaking $41 million to secure the promotional rights to Fury vs. Whyte.

Warren's bid beat out rival promoter Eddie Hearn, who's had a long promotional relationship with Whyte.

However, Warren indicates that he's confused as to why Hearn is answering questions related to the organization of Fury-Whyte. According to Warren, Whyte is not working with Hearn for this particular contest.

"Work on the fantastic match-up of Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte has been going on in earnest this week. The deposit has gone in and plans for the huge event are being finalized. We will announce the date and venue once all the details are ironed out so stay tuned," Warren told Daily Star.

"We are in contact with Whyte’s lawyer and are confident he will sign soon to face the Gypsy King. Why wouldn’t Whyte want to take this fight for the WBC heavyweight title? He’s getting paid a hell of a lot of money for it and it is his chance to fight for a major belt against the best on the planet.

"I’m not sure why interviewers keep asking Eddie Hearn for details about the fight as it has absolutely nothing to do with him. Unless Dillian tells us otherwise, Matchroom are not representing Whyte for this fight, and we will continue working on finalizing everything through the parties Whyte wants, which is not Matchroom. If Matchroom wanted to be involved then they should have bid more money."
