The Gypsy King retained his crown in October last year by a forceful knockout, with a consolidation against then-champion Anthony Joshua.
AJ eventually lost his own title defense to Alexander Usyk and now the pair are set to match again, Fury turns to Dillian White as he once again keeps his belt on the line.
The WBC named White as the mandatory challenger on December 7, but since then the fight has run into several difficulties.
The undefeated ace of 6ft 9in wanted White to accept almost £5m to step aside and let him fight Usyak.
But White’s team has dug in with their man seeking a chance to take Fury’s belt – and they seem to have finally granted their wish.
After four delayed purse bids for the conflict – the final auction is now set for Mexico City on Friday, January 28 – Fury suggested the talks were over and White had got his shot.
Morecambe Giant sprang up: “I can’t wait to fix Dillian White’s face, dude.
“I’m going to give him the best hide I’ve ever had in my life.
“Dillian White, work hard because you’re going to annihilate, bum.”
When is Tyson Fury vs Dillian White?
- As of yet, there is no fixed date for the All-British Showdown.
- But if built it is expected to be in late March/April this year.
- Fury has not fought in the UK since 2018, when he faced Sefer Seferi in Manchester and then Francesco Pianetta in Belfast.
What is the location of the fight?
The most likely location for the incident is reportedly Cardiff or Manchester, but no details have been set in stone.
If Fury returns to his roots in the North West, it will be his first appearance in three years since the win over Safari.
And either venue will be great news for UK Fight fans, with what’s likely to be a friendly time against Wilder at 5 a.m. GMT epic.
Which TV channel and live stream will it be on?
Again, with no concrete details, everything is just speculation about the fight at the moment.

But the match is almost certain to be a pay-per-view event and it will be shown on which platform depending on who promotes the fight.
Fury vs Wilder 3 costs £24.95 to watch on BT and we would expect something similar for this all-British title clash.
Eddie Hearn said: “I don’t think Tyson Fury is going to care who promotes the fight.
“He might just be wondering who makes the most money, and if I’m the fighter in this scenario I’d just like to see who puts in the most money for the fight.
“But I don’t have a problem with Dillian fighting on another promoter’s show, and we’ll be promoting him with and behind him, but he wants to do it in a matchroom show.”
what did they say
Tyson Fury: “They’re all just workouts for me, I’ll destroy every man who comes before me.
“I’m due for an easy fight anyway, [Dillian Whyte] Really ideal.
To be honest I want heavy bags on the legs. [He’s] ideal candidate. ,
Dillian White: “Fury has been mandated to fight me twice.
“He asked me for a WBC ‘Diamond’ belt to fight, but ran away when he agreed. He just keeps on making excuses.
“Hopefully he has no choice now. What’s he going to do? Throw the belt in the bin and run away with more money than he got to fight Wilder?
,[Of course] I’ll finish him.”
