He will order the WBC to hand Whyte the super bout and a shot at the title which he covets.

American Wilder is set to take on Fury this winter.

He lost to the Mancunian in February when Fury wiped the floor with him after he sensationally KO’d the Bronze Bomber in the third round.

The pair had previously fought out a draw.

Fury is set to fight Anthony Joshua in a battle of Britain after facing Wilder.

But now Hearn has cast doubt on this fight taking place.

Wilder was totally outclassed in the second match-up between the two heavyweights.

Hearn told IFL: “I’ll do Whyte-Fury. I’ll stick the dough up. It’s a huge fight.

“We haven’t heard from Deontay Wilder.

“He hasn’t been vocal about the third fight.

“But we understand the position. Tyson Fury has got to fight Deontay Wilder. Good luck, crack on. It’s difficult for everyone.”

But first Whyte must come through in his fight with Alexander Povetkin on August 15.

And Hearn does not think the WBC have been fair to Londoner Whyte, considering how many days he has spent as mandatory challenger over the last few years.

When asked what the WBC should say to Whyte after he has beaten Povetkin, Hearn said: “You have now beaten a plethora of top 15 opponents, you have now had 10 or 11 WBC fights, and you have now been mandatory for 1,000 days.

“Number one for 1,000 days and mandatory for nearly as many.

“Your next fight is against the WBC champion.

“Will they do Fury against Wilder 3, and will they do it in November or December?

“The cut-off date for Whyte to fight for the WBC title is the end of February, and we expect that to be kept to.

“If they [Fury-Wilder] fight in early December, and we make an agreement to fight in early March, yes, we will accept that.”

However, it is highly unlikely Fury will take on Whyte before he faces Joshua in a match-up that is likely to break pay-per-view records.

Even if that means giving up the WBC belt.
