33-year-old Whyte avenged his defeat to Alexander Povetkin with a fourth-round knockout in Gibraltar in March and is now set to make his boxing return on the mainland.
It has been billed as something of a homecoming, with Whyte having not fought on home soil at a high profile British boxing arena since meeting Oscar Rivas in 2019.
'With everything opening up, [it's] the opportunity for him to fight at the O2 again,' said Hearn.
