Dillian Whyte responds to Tyson Fury claiming he will splatter him in December
Despite waiting forever for an overdue title opportunity, WBC Interim heavyweight champion Dillian “The Body Snatcher” Whyte (28-2, 19ko) clapped back at WBC champion Tyson “Gypsy King” Fury (30-0-1, 21ko) after hearing of a possible December title fight. There is not enough time or words to describe the saga of Whyte and the forever-elusive WBC title shot. Since 2017, The Body Snatcher has watched other fighters get two championship opportunities before he receives one. Well, he could be getting the long-overdue title shot in a prematurely planned fight by Fury for December. This is good news for the Interim titlist who has been hounding Fury for a while.
THE SOCIAL MEDIA BACK AND FORTH
While the world was on lockdown from the COVID-19 pandemic, Whyte used this downtime to go after the WBC champion by violating the code of sparring.
“Gypsy Tyson Fury coward always conning the public. You forget I’ve put you down lots before & watched you pathetically sobbing on the canvas. You ran away last year when WBC ordered you to fight me anytime, anywhere, anyhow #FakeTyson #Coward.”
Then there was the time when Fury revealed he helped out his fellow countryman by giving him sparring work to keep money in his pocket during a ban.
“I was concerned about him, so I reached out to him, and this is how people treat you when you’re nice to them! By the way, when he was out on a ban, years ago, I kept him going with bringing him in.”
So clearly, there is a significant amount of animosity that has built up between the two fighters. During an interview on BT Sports, the WBC champion laid out his bucket list of fights.
“I’m going to fight Wilder, October 9. I’ll fight Dillian Whyte back in the UK for the first time in years at a stadium…Let’s get a date in December. I’ll shut that bum right up, that will be an easy one. Then, I will fight Joshua in March.”
Fury would go into further detail when talking about Whyte.
“Back in England, we are going to deliver a UK fight because it has been a long time since I’ve boxed here. I don’t want to do an indoor arena. I want to do a stadium fight and who better than to do it with than this guy who keeps calling for it.”
“Let’s hope he doesn’t start asking for stupid money that does not exist, because if he asks for stupid money, then he don’t want to fight…. We will do Dillian Whyte sometime in December, that’s definitely going to happen. I am going to splatter, him for sure.
By now, we all know how this goes. Whyte got wind of all this and dropped a reply indicating that the Gypsy King is back to taking drugs. The reference dates back to 2015, when a drug problem sent Fury spiraling out of control and into a three-year hiatus.
