The co-promoter of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, Frank Warren, has indicated that there would be no British judges in the fight against Dillian Whyte.
On April 23, Fury vs. Whyte will take place at Wembley Stadium in London.
The scoring of the junior welterweight bout between Josh Taylor and Jack Catterall has been a major source of disagreement.
Taylor won a twelve-round split decision over Catterall.
To prevent disputes, the match will be judged by neutrals. The British Board of Boxing Control is currently investigating this. Judges who are disqualified to be on the bench, according to Warren, should be penalized.
There will be no British judges on the panel of judges for Tyson Fury vs. Dillian Whyte.
Fury’s management has made preparations to have foreign judges monitor his homecoming bout as a result of Josh Taylor’s uncontested victory against Jack Catterall in the super lightweight championship.
Following the Josh Taylor vs. Jack Catterall incident, foreign judges will evaluate Tyson Fury vs. Dillian Whyte.
After spectators and experts dubbed the bout a “robbery,” the British Boxing Board of Control launched an inquiry.
The bout will be judged by unbiased judges, according to Tyson Fury’s promoter, Frank Warren.
Taylor’s buddy and former pupil of Taylor’s trainer Ben Davison, Tyson Fury, feels Catterall won the bout.
Warren feels that holding organizations and judges accountable is the best method to correct British boxing’s judging flaws.
“When a group investigates something, they make a choice on what to do. The Football League, Premier League, or any other football organization conducts an investigation and renders a decision.
Unfortunately, Tyson Fury’s career, and maybe his life, were “destroyed” by the shoddy judging at the Hydro in Glasgow last week in the Taylor vs. Catterall bout.

Catterall stepped down in July to allow Taylor to meet Jose Ramirez and bring the division back together.
Taylor is moving up to welterweight to face Terence Crawford, and he won’t be able to fight for the undisputed championship again.

After the commotion surrounding Josh Taylor’s victory over Jack Catterall, Frank Warren wants no British judges to score Tyson Fury vs. Dillian Whyte next month. Despite the fact that Chorley’s Catterall landed more strikes in all but one round and practically every pundit predicted Catterall would win, Taylor was granted a split decision victory.
The British Boxing Board of Control has urged that the judges’ score be reviewed, which has been heavily criticized. Tyson Fury will face Devon Whyte in a heavyweight fight at Wembley Stadium on Saturday, April 23.
The WBC ordered that he defend his championship against fellow Brit Whyte, but purse bids were delayed four times and Whyte’s contract with the governing organization was filed hours before the deadline. Fury fans in the United Kingdom have been waiting nearly four years for the announcement of this fight.
Warren has stated his discontent with British judges as a consequence of the Taylor vs. Catterall match and his wish for no British judges to grade the future heavyweight bout. Warren puts it this way: “It’s a disaster for boxing as a whole, and it’s awful news for Jack. Football referees would be demoted if they were on this show, yet they continue to work.
