LIKE most fights in the heavyweight division these days, a mooted clash between Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte seemed too good to be true.

Some outlets got ahead of themselves earlier in the week, declaring the bout all but finalised, but this is apparently well wide of the mark.

The fight was first mentioned by the WBC, who liked the idea of doing it for their interim title, and both boxers showed an interest.
