Dillian Whyte slammed heavyweight world champion Tyson Fury ahead of their boxing match scheduled for this weekend. He insisted that Fury’s team treated him like nothing during the purse bid negotiation.
The bout will be held on April 23 this weekend at Wembley Stadium, London. Dillian Whyte will challenge ‘The Gypsy King’ to snatch the WBC and The Ring heavyweight titles. However, Dillian Whyte believes he’s been wronged during the negotiations.
Tyson Fury’s team reportedly won the purse bid negotiation.
“They won the [purse bid], they’re trying to treat me like nothing. They don’t want to pay anything, they don’t want to look after things properly.” Whyte said.
The 34-year-old British boxer refused to believe that Tyson Fury is the sole center of attention for the upcoming match just because he is the title holder heading into this weekend.
“From where I stand, it’s the Dillian Whyte and Tyson Fury show – but from where he stands, it’s the Fury-Whyte show. He’s heavyweight champion, so I understand what they’re doing, saying, whatever. But you can’t buy a high-performance car and not put high-performance fuel in it, and that’s what they’re trying to do.” Whyte said.
Dillian Whyte didn’t show up for the press conference last month. Fury’s camp seems to be disappointed towards Whyte for his behavior but Whyte believes it’s a huge hypocrisy. He recalled the time when Fury didn’t attend the press conference for his match against Wladimir Klitschko back in 2015.
“People forget that Tyson Fury didn’t turn up to the Wladimir Klitschko press conference. Everyone’s giving me stick, and he was contractually obliged to go to that – I wasn’t contractually obliged to go to any press conference.” Whyte said.
“I don’t care what Tyson Fury says, he says a lot of s***. His mouth is like a toilet, he just keeps flushing and flushing and flushing and flushing. He just flushes any kind of random s*** that comes out of his mouth. Me and him are gonna have a fight regardless, so I don’t care about mind games. I’m a fighter, I’m a warrior. If he wants it – any time, anywhere – I’m down. I don’t give a f*** about this, that and the other. He can’t get in my head. Even if he gets in my head, he’s only gonna find a lot of disturbance in there.” Whyte added.
