“We have been attempting to get this work [to] September [in] however Tyson’s not prepared, proper now I might steamroll that sucker.
“It took him about three rounds to get his mojo again towards that tomato can [Sefer Seferi] he fought the opposite day.”

He added: “When Tyson will get his rhythm again and his boxing is lengthy he’s awkward however proper now I’d destroy him.”
“Sooner or later I’d destroy him as nicely however I’m simply saying proper now he doesn’t need this work, no manner.

Another option for Whyte if the unlikely clash against Fury does not materialise is either a rematch against old foe Anthony Joshua or a shot at Deontay Wilder’s WBC strap.
Hearn said: “This is a hugely important clash for the heavyweight division that has captured the imagination of the public.
“Dillian Whyte’s career is on a ferocious upward curve right now and his popularity is continuing to grow.
“Dillian’s brutal KO of Australian Lucas Browne at The O2 in March underlined that prowess at the top level and now another visitor from Down Under is here to try to halt Dillian’s rise to the top.
“Joseph Parker is a softly spoken and likeable man – but make no mistake that in the ring, he’s all business and has bad intentions for Dillian.
“This is a real 50-50 contest and I’ve no doubt that the winner will be in world title action very soon.”
