But he has revealed there has already been talks of a sensational heavyweight scrap against the Gypsy King.

Speaking to iFL TV, Whyte said: “I’ve asked to to fight Tyson Fury September this year. I’ve asked to fight Tyson Fury a few times, we made an approach.

“We were trying to get this work September but Tyson’s not ready, right now I would steamroll that sucker.

“It took him about three rounds to get his mojo back against that tomato can [Sefer Seferi] he fought the other day.”

Whyte admitted Fury is a clumsy fighter however that he would “destroy” The Gypsy King explaining however the fight would be sort of a “hot knife hunting butter.”

He added: “When Mike Tyson gets his rhythm back and his boxing is long he’s awkward however immediately I’d destroy him.”

“In the long run I’d destroy him also however I’m simply language immediately he doesn’t need this work, no way.”

 

“In the next year or so he does not want this work as well, he needs to get his confidence back and other things back before he even talk about any kind of Dillian Whyte.”

Another option for Whyte if the unlikely clash against Fury does not materialise is either a rematch against old foe Anthony Joshua or a shot at Deontay Wilder’s WBC strap.

Hearn said: “This could be a massively necessary clash for the heavyweight division that has captured the imagination of the general public.

“Dillian Whyte’s career is on a ferocious upward curve right now and his popularity is continuing to grow.

“Dillian’s brutal KO of Australian Lucas Browne at The O2 in March underlined that prowess at the top level and now another visitor from Down Under is here to try to halt Dillian’s rise to the top.

“Joseph Parker is a softly spoken and likeable man – but make no mistake that in the ring, he’s all business and has bad intentions for Dillian.

“This is a real 50-50 contest and I’ve no doubt that the winner will be in world title action very soon.”
