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.
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."
