Warren Scoffs At Whyte’s Request For A Fury Rematch

Frank Warren has scoffed at any suggestion from Dillian Whyte that he should be given a rematch against Tyson Fury.

Whyte, who lost by sixth round knockout to the WBC heavyweight champion at Wembley Stadium on Saturday, has complained of an illegal push just after the shot that ended the fight. The punch itself was a perfectly executed uppercut from Fury.

“I was buzzed,” Whyte told Sky Sports.

“I was trying to regather my senses, then he proper, full-on pushed me. I fell over and hit my head on the canvas. 

“He said he will retire, but I hope he doesn’t retire because I want another go.”

Warren, Fury’s co-promoter with Bob Arum, was a guest today (Tuesday) on Talksport’s Jim White and Simon Jordan show and was asked about Whyte’s request for a second bout.

“No. What for? Based upon what? The only unsatisfactory thing for him was that he got stopped. He got knocked out and that’s the end of it. It’s not even debatable. It’s not going to happen. You’ve got to fight your way back into contention and good luck to you doing that.

“There’s some good domestic fights like a Daniel Dubois or a Joe Joyce. They’re yardsticks to gauge how these other guys are.”
