Tyson Fury next fight date CONFIRMED by Frank Warren with heavyweight champ still in talks with Brit rival Dillian Whyte

TYSON FURY’S next fight will take place on March 26 – but his opponent is still to be decided.

The Gypsy King, 33, has been ordered to fight Dillian Whyte by the WBC but no deal has been reached yet.

Dillian Whyte is heavily tipped to be Fury’s next opponent

The Bodysnatcher is said to be furious with a prospective 80-20 per cent purse split in favour of the champ.

Warren refused to talk potential opponents and remained tight-lipped on the location of Fury’s next fight too.

He told iFL TV: “Tyson wants the fight to be the end of March. As a team we’re looking at other situations as well.

“Whatever happens he will fight on March 26, that’s what the objective is.

“I’m not going to say where it is.

“We do have a date here but it could be somewhere else. The fact of the matter is that’s when he wants to fight.”

Fury is eager to fight at Old Trafford next to secure his ‘hero’s homecoming’.

He said: “It’s always been my dream to fight at Old Trafford.”

There has also been talk of Fury fighting Whyte in Cardiff for an all British showdown.

Alternatively, Fury could fight Andy Ruiz jr in the USA.

The heavyweight world champion has not fought in the UK since his bout with Francesco Pianeta in 2018, having fought Deontay Wilder twice in Las Vegas and once in Los Angeles.

Fury has even teased a crossover fight against UFC champion Francis Ngannou – but with a twist.

The WBC heavyweight boxing champion shared a poster of himself and Ngannou, tagging UFC president Dana White in the post.

He captioned it: “Who would like to see me fight this beast boxing rules @ufc gloves?”

It comes following a feud between Fury and UFC heavyweight Ngannou, who has talked up a boxing switch before.
