Frank Warren has smashed Dillian White’s chances for a rematch with Tyson Fury after being knocked out by ‘Gypsy King’.

Fury retained his WBC heavyweight title with a brutal knockout of his opponent in the sixth round at Wembley on Saturday night.

In the wake, Whyte has accused Fury of an ‘illegal’ push that caused him to hit the canvas and demanded a rematch.

However, Fury’s promoter Warren has given Whyte a firm answer, joking that you can not always get what you want.

“No,” Warren told talkSPORT when asked directly if he would comply with White’s request for rematch.

‘Why? Based on what?

‘Listen, when I was really young, I asked to take Julia Roberts out, it never happened. Where do you want to go with it?

»It can not even be discussed. That’s not going to happen, Dillian. You have to fight your way back into the fray, and you know, good luck with that. ‘

Whyte felt the knockout should not have been allowed to stand after resisting the first blow, only for Fury to push him to the floor with considerable force.

‘When the uppercut landed, I was buzzing, but apparently I was trying to regain my senses, and then he pushed properly towards me, and I fell over and hit my head on the canvas, which is illegal. This is not wrestling, this is boxing, “said Whyte.

“But as usual, they let Fury do what he wants and get away with it. I should have had extra time to recover and then kept fighting.

“He pushed to me, and then he even went to the referee and said, ‘Oh, don’t let the fight go on.’ What? It was as if … the referee was not doing his job.

‘Okay, I got caught, no doubt about it, a good shot. I went for the left uppercut, he went for the right uppercut, he’s a little taller than me, so obviously he landed his in the distance.

‘I was injured, of course, but I did not go straight down. I got hurt, I tried to get my senses together, and then he pushed me with two hands. It was not like a one-armed thing, he pushed me fully and I fell over and hit my head.

‘Terrible work from the judge there, but that’s what it is. I should have had time to recover, time to go back to my corner, but Tyson Fury gets away with a lot of things.

‘He says he’s retiring, I do not hope he retires because I want a trip again.’
