Tyson Fury WWE: Boxing Champion “might not fight” in April

Last updated

(Extremely) Part-time WWE Superstar and boxing champion Tyson Fury may not be fighting in April as previously anticipated.

Fury has admitted in the past that he is absolutely looking to return to WWE following his ‘retirement’ fight against Dillian Whyte, but now the April contest with his fellow Brit might not even be taking place.

Jeffrey Benz, Dillian Whyte’s lawyer, has said that the confirmed fight might not even be taking place due to contractual issues.

“We haven’t spoken to Frank [Warren] or George [Warren] for a month,” Benz recently explained to fans and the media.

“We had a total of a three-minute conversation with Frank, he called me. Everything we’ve asked for is normal, standard, commercial; it’s not outlandish or outrageous. (Their behaviour) is like nothing I’ve ever seen.

“We don’t have a single ticket for Dillian, for his entourage, his mum or anybody else. Contrary to what Frank said, we didn’t ask for complimentary tickets equal to the number of ringside tickets; we asked for 25 ringside seats” Benz revealed.

“It’s normal, it’s what we give to Dillian’s opponents. We have been given nothing. We’ve asked for credentials for his security team and video team. They’ve given us the bare minimum. It’s been stupid games, it was like pulling tooth and nail. We spent weeks asking them to tell us the size of the ring. [They’re] trying to stack the deck in Fury’s favour” Whyte’s lawyer concluded.
