That fixture would also have mass appeal considering both he and Whyte pride themselves on their finishing power. Not to mention the added attraction of a high-profile American opponent would likely mean another substantial payday.

Alternatively, someone like Andy Ruiz or a Joseph Parker rematch might appeal, although the former is set to face Luis Ortiz in July. Fury’s clash against Whyte could well be the end of the Gypsy King’s boxing career, but the loser of that encounter is adamant to fight on.

“It’s a hard pill to swallow obviously,” added Whyte. “At the time, I felt disappointed, because I felt like I disappointed everyone, but now we’ve calmed down and we’ve had a think about it, I’m going to have a little break with my family and stuff, and then I’m ready to go again. We don’t quit, we just keep going.”
