Whyte, 33, has shifted his focus to a Battle of Britain with Fury, although Wallin’s promoter Dmitry Salita has called for the bout to be rescheduled.

And according to Sky Sports, the WBC will make a ruling on the bout ‘in the coming week’.

Whyte will be hoping the WBC opt to scrap his clash with Wallin and mandate him to face Fury early next year.

But even if that happens, the Brixton Body Snatcher is refusing to get his hopes up.

He said: The Brixton Body Snatcher said: “The Tyson Fury fight is a fight that I wanted, it’s a fight I tried to get before.

“[It was] Mandated for belts and it didn’t happen. And fortunately for me now, it seems like it’s gonna go ahead.

“But you can never bank on anything Tyson Fury says.

“Because he might say, ‘You know what I’ve had enough I don’t want to fight anymore.’ Or he might say, ‘I need a longer rest.’

“He’s had three hard fights with Deontay Wilder. We don’t know how much they have taken out of him.

“So we’ll just have to wait and see.”

He added: “Now I’ve got to focus on recovering healing up and go and do what I do.”

Whyte, 33, has set his sights on a stadium showdown with The Gypsy King.

He said: “It’s a major fight in boxing, especially for the UK.

“It’s a major fight If me and him can dust-up in the early part of next year in a stadium.

“It’s a major fight and one I’m looking forward to. I think Tyson Fury will look forward to fighting me as well. It’s a big fight.

“We know each other well, we’ve sparred with each other, we’ve spent time with each other we’ve had our ups and downs and our beefs and stuff.

“But I think, logically, he’ll think, ‘This a good fight. It’s a good homecoming fight and it should happen.’ So let’s see.”
