Tyson Fury Eyes Whyte Fight After Wilder Trilogy
WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury wants to share the ring with Dillian Whyte once he is done fighting Deontay Wilder for the third time.
Speaking with Manchester United legend, Gary Neville, the heavyweight champion claimed that maintaining his unbeaten streak against the Whyte will be easy.
“I’ll shut that bum right up. That’ll be an easy one. That’s definitely going to happen. I’m going to splatter him,” Fury said.
“We’re going deliver a UK fight, it’s been a long time since I boxed here,” he continued. “Who better than this guy who keeps calling for it? Let’s hope he doesn’t start asking for stupid money. If he asks for stupid money, he doesn’t want the fight.”
Fury is scheduled to fight Wilder on October 9. He then plans to take on Whyte in December.
After seeing Fury’s interview with Gary Neville, Whyte had a brief response for him on Instagram.
Fury had also taken a jab at Eddie Hearn, the promoter of Anthony Joshua and Whyte. He said that Hearn acts like a world heavyweight champion, but he’s just a businessman.
Hearn had a stingy reply for Fury as well.
“I’ll tell you one thing me and Tyson Fury have got in common though, we’ve both got the same amount of heavyweight world title defences – absolutely zero,” he said.
