Promoter Frank Warren said talkSPORT: “Tyson Fury will be back in the ring in late February or early March.

“Due to the legal battles involving Dillian White, Tyson does not have the mandated call to answer and is free to proceed to defend his belt and this is a fight I want to stage in the UK.”

Warren, the head of Queensbury Promotions, insisted that Fury’s next move would not be affected by White’s legal issues with the WBC.

He added: “It won’t impact Tyson.

“Tyson made it clear that he wants to fight in late February/early March and that’s what we’re moving to do.

“Tyson just wants to stay active, he’s just fought one fight in 22 months. Whatever happens to Dillian White, he’ll do his job.

“Tyson has to decide who he’s going to fight, the decision will be his.

“We’re not going to be hindered by his problems. They have to be sorted out.

“Tyson is the world champion, not Dillian White.

“He’s not setting the ground rules here, he’s the champion who does.”

Fan favorite Fury is set to make his second defense of the WBC strap early next year and is happy to face whatever is placed in front of him.

He said: “I thought I was going to fight Dillian White, but I don’t know what’s going on in his personal life with WBC.

“He has a court case going on and it’s kind of s**t because I know how long mediation can take because it took 18 months with one of my own, Dante Wilder.

“I hope he doesn’t get stuck in the tall grass and I hope I don’t have to be forced into another fight like a voluntary defence.

“But I don’t care because they’re all just work-outs for me, I’ll destroy them all like I’ve done all my life.

“It doesn’t matter if it’s Dillion White, Dillion Blue or Dillion Grey.

“I’m not interested in waiting for the other guys to fight again in February while defending my WBC heavyweight world title, the latest in early March.”
