Frank Warren, co-promoter of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, indicates that his boxer will never face good friend Joseph Parker, who previously held the WBO strap.

Parker, who last month defeated Derek Chisora with a unanimous decision in their rematch, is hungry to capture a world title.

There is a possibility that Fury may eventually move ahead to a full division unification with the winner of the upcoming rematch between Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk, who clash for the WBO, IBO, IBF, WBA titles.

Fury and Parker have been training together and the two heavyweights have been friends for some time. It was Fury who advised Parker to secure Andy Lee as a new head trainer. Lee is part of Fury's training team.

Warren could see Fury one day becoming a trainer - after retirement - based on the way the unbeaten champion assisted Parker in preparing for the recent rematch with Chisora.

Fury is slated to return to the ring in late March.

Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum, who also co-promotes Fury, mentioned Parker as one of the potential opponents.

Warren does not expect that to happen, after speaking to Fury about the possibility. 

"I've spoken with Tyson about Joseph and he'll never fight him," Warren said to BBC Sport.

"Tyson did well with him [for the Chisora fight]. Eventually I wouldn't be surprised if Tyson becomes a coach. Boxing ends for everyone eventually and Tyson needs some interest in his life. I think he would be an excellent trainer or manager."
