Arum wanted to talk to the WBC about fury's mandatory defense, which must actually take place until February 2021, deferring either to continue or to release the "Gypsy King" altogether.
Now Whyte's Promoter Eddie Hearn in the matter, spoke up. In an Interview with IFL TV, he said: "The obvious step here is to make Tyson Fury the Franchise Champion. I've seen Devin Haney and Vasiliy Lomachenko.“ In that case, Lomachenko (14-1, 10 K. o.) was due to the revaluation of the obligation to fight against Hearns protege Haney (24-0, 15 Ko) around. "All of a sudden the Top is asking Rank that Lomachenko Franchise is Champion and the WBC makes him – which means that you get a hold of him, can't touch, he has no obligation to challenge the best and if he loses, then he is still the WBC Franchise Champion. Where is the sense of size, if you never are allowed to get there, if you deserve it?“ From this experience he learned, as Hayne regular WBC devalued the belt this often was not respected.
