EDDIE HEARN reveals bid for Dillian Whyte’s proposed fight with Tyson Fury has been delayed AGAIN.
The wallet tenders were originally scheduled to take place on January 11th before being pushed back to January 18th.
But now Hearn and Frank Warren – Fury promoters – will have to wait until Friday, January 21, to make their first bids.
Talking to BBC Radio 5 Live, Hearn said: “We received an email overnight – this Friday is the official date of the first bid.
“Who knows if that might change, there’s a lot going on behind the scenes, there’s a lot of discussion.
“Obviously there is also a legal situation between Dillian and the WBC but we want to move on.
“I think people keep talking about March days and things like that – it’s starting to get very fanciful.
“Dillian wants to fight which he hasn’t boxed since last March.

“Hopefully we can progress on a pocket-sized bid if needed or close a deal.”
WBC ordered Fury to fight Whyte with Warren suggests a date in March in the UK ability.
But WBC also Judgment Whyte will receive only 20% of the total amount, which angered the British.
Reply, Whyte launched a legal battle in an attempt to increase his market share – but he is likely to fight Fury no matter what the Arbitration Court decides.
