Tyson Fury, Dillian Whyte Given Deadline To Sign Contract For Fight

Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte have a little over two weeks to sign on the dotted line.

The WBC informed the two that they have until the end of the business day on February 21 to submit their signed agreements for the heavyweight title unification matchup, targeted for April 23.

But Whyte seems to be the one hesitating. He’s made it clear that he and his promoter Eddie Hearn want a bigger cut of the purse. The WBC said Whyte would get 20% while Fury is entitled to 80%.

Whyte, the interim champion, wants to negotiate for 30%, which is usually mandated by the WBC for championship matches.

Whyte has yet to speak out about the conundrum, but the same can’t be said about Fury.

“Whyte feathers, coward. Where are ya Whyte feathers?” Fury said in a video.

“You was mandatory for me for three minutes and you got your fight, didn’t you coward? ‘Tyson Fury’s a coward, he don’t want to fight Dillian Whyte’.

“But all of a sudden it’s on your toes and you’ve gone silent you little b—-. Come out of hiding Whyte feathers. Come and get it.”

Frank Warren, Fury’s co-promoter, is the one who won Friday’s purse bid with a whopping bid of $41 million, a record high. The fight is targeted to take place in the U.K.
