Dillian Whyte set for heavyweight clash with Joseph Parker in July

Dillian Whyte in training

Whyte, Parker and their promoters will meet at the official press conference, less than two hours after the huge heavyweight clash was signed and sealed.

Whyte vs Parker is expected to take place on July 28 at the O2 Arena in London, Parker's third consecutive fight on United Kingdom soil, having previously taken on Hughie Fury in Manchester last September and Joshua in Cardiff back in March.

"I was expecting from Dillian Whyte and his team to run away from the fight, but I didn't expect from them to be such bull**** artists", Pulev said in a statement. The Bulgarian said last week he was "95 percent sure" that the fight would take place in Sofia in August. It'll be an incredible fight.

Whyte had been embroiled in a boxing politics row having been ordered to fight final eliminators with both Luis Ortiz for the WBC title and Kubrat Pulev for the IBF strap, with the WBC's request for an eliminator that particularly stinging for Whyte.

"Whilst we are in negotiations with the Jennings camp, we have other real options on the table including Alexander Ustinov. Obviously we came close against Anthony Joshua (but) didn't quite get the win", he said.

"Whoever told you that I was not interested in fighting you is delusional". He's got a big mouth and says some amusing things - and he's also highly entertaining in the ring.

One source explained, "some of us think they just needed some time apart to figure out if it was possible to make it work". News, Hilary laughed: 'My mom was at Matt's birthday and she was like, "I just love him.

"I like challenges and I rise to them".

We didn't get the result but I feel it's a great time to come back.

Whyte often called out Parker when the Kiwi had his WBO belt but appeared to have other alternatives to further his career after the rugged Londoner worked his way into powerful positions with the IBF and WBC.

Apart from being a popular fight in terms of likely television pay per views, a victory for Parker would send him back up the rankings which is his main goal now.

The Herald was ringside when Whyte stopped Lucas Browne with a brutal left hook which put the Australian into hospital a week before the Joshua-Parker fight, and Whyte would be happy to trade blows with Parker, something that Joshua wouldn't.

Parker dropped a unanimous decision and relinquished his WBO heavyweight title.
