EDDIE HEARN has claimed Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte have “other issues to work out” but they “won’t affect the fight”.
The 33-year-old British rival will settle his score at Wembley on April 23.
It came after a record-breaking £30.6million WBC purse won by Fury’s promoter Frank Warren.
Hearn, who bid £24million, consequently has no official role in the mega-fight but has promoted Whyte for much of the heavyweight’s career.
And he claimed there were still disputes going on behind the scenes – which makes him happy to take a backseat.
Hearn told talkSPORT: “There’s just a lot of different problems to solve.

“I don’t think it will affect the fight. But to be honest I’m so glad I’m not involved.
“Cause I’ll just show up or whatever I’m about to do, tune in and watch it. Hopefully they both get in the ring and all have a great fight.”
Whyte is still poised to take the WBC to arbitration after only receiving the minimum 20 per cent split of the purse.
But he argues that his “interim” title should guarantee up to 45 percent.
Currently, Whyte is said to be making £6.1million but the winner gets an extra 10 per cent – meaning he could deposit over £8million.
Promoter Warren lashed out at the contender for not attending the pre-fight press conference.
In response, Whyte’s team said a number of their requests were not met, resulting in the no-show.
