Tyson Fury is “definitely fighting in February or March” and is “adamant” he will do so with or without Dillian Whyte.

The WBC world heavyweight champion intends to defend his title early next year off the back of a devastating display to dispatch Deontay Wilder in 11 rounds last month.

While Whyte could be the opponent, having elevated himself to the position of interim world champion, the Londoner is yet to be made the mandatory challenger for Fury due to an ongoing legal fight with the WBC.

Should that rumble on into 2022 and no compromise is made, then Fury will remain steadfast in his belief to remain active, and told Boxxer promoter Ben Shalom of his plans.

“He told me that he will definitely be fighting in February or March but doesn’t know who it will be against,” Shalom told Sky Sports.

“It’s out of Tyson’s hands. But he does want to fight in February or March, whether it’s against Dillian or not.

“He is adamant about that. He’s a great guy. We are both from Manchester and we know the same people. We have a similar understanding. It was good to see him at our show. He is very supportive.”
