The Gypsy King could have a second defense of his WBC title against Brixton Banger if his former teammate gets ahead of teammate Otto Wallin later this month.

But coach and outspoken father John wants his son’s next match to be an undisputed title fight with new unified champion Oleksandr Usyk.

He told Sky Sports: “I don’t want to talk about White, he’s not in Tyson’s class.

“Good luck boy, he’ll get his shot, but at the end of the day there’s bigger fish to fry than White.”

John is adamant that his son will get the better of the cunning southpaw Usyak, who last month ended Anthony Joshua’s second reign as unified victor.

He said: “If Tyson was out regularly and sharpened his tools properly and got that ring rust out of the way, no one could touch Tyson.

“At the moment he is boxing 50-60 percent more than himself.

“What’s to stop him from being undeterred, some blown-up cruiserweight from Ukraine?

“Tyson without ring rust, and a proper run at work, doesn’t give Alexander Usik any chance.

“Its cold hard facts, Tyson is unbeatable at the moment, he proved it.

“He can get up from the world’s toughest puncture at half-mast, get up and win the fight and take it to himself.

“If my son wants to listen to me, it’s Usyk or nothing… but he never listens to me, so it’s up to Tyson.”

Fury, 33, wasn’t worried about uniting the division after his surprising 11th-round KO win over Deontay Wilder last weekend.

At the press conference after the fight, he said: “We’ll see, I just earned a break.

“I’ve been at home for two weeks in six months so I’m going to take advantage of this win.

“I am the biggest dog in this division. One of the heaviest in history at 277 lbs.

“We’ll see what tomorrow brings.”
