World Boxing Council President Maurcio Sulaiman is not paying attention to the back and forth bickering between the teams for heavyweights Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte.
Whyte is the mandatory challenger to Fury, who holds the WBC's world title. Pursuant to a WBC order, he is due a crack at the belt by February 2021.
At the moment Fury is scheduled to face Deontay Wilder in a trilogy fight on December 19. And Whyte is staking his mandatory status next Saturday night when he faces Alexander Povetkin at Fight Camp in Brentwood.
Fury's co-promoters, Top Rank's Bob Arum and Queensberry's Frank Warren, have expressed their disinterest in staging a fight with Whyte in early 2021.
The two veteran promoters, and Fury, are motivated to finalize a two fight unification deal with WBA, WBO, IBF, IBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.
There is also the scenario of Fury-Wilder 3, due to COVID-19 restrictions, being pushed back to 2021.
Whyte's promoter, Eddie Hearn of Matchroom, has openly stated that unless Fury-Wilder 3 takes place in 2020 - then Fury has to fight Whyte.
Arum and Warren claim their agreement with the WBC, with respect to the trilogy, allows for postponements.
With the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the WBC is taking things one month at a time.
"No, we don't pay attention to outside external information," Sulaiman told Sky Sports. "All we can do is rule by official communications and it is our belief that the [Fury-Wilder] fight will take place in December as they have communicated to the WBC.
"The next fight is Wilder-Fury and the winner to face Dillian Whyte, if he beats Povetkin. We can only rule on what is available and what is the reality. The WBC position is clear - Wilder-Fury, the winner against Whyte, if he wins against Povetkin."
