With this tweet, not only did Whyte dismiss Fury’s claim of being number one, but he also accused ‘The Gypsy King’ of avoiding him on two separate occasions and even called him a coward. Clearly ‘The Body Snatcher’ disagrees with Fury’s claim of there only ever being one champion.

Will Dillian Whyte ever get to face Tyson Fury?

With this altercation, it is clear that Whyte and Fury do not get along with each other. And this is no surprise, as the pair have a long-standing history between them. 

There have also been rumors that Whyte knocked down and hurt Fury in sparring many years ago. And as a result, ‘The Body Snatcher’ has shown his confidence in his ability to beat Fury. So could Dillian Whyte get his shot at Tyson Fury?

Since Whyte is the WBC interim champion, it outs him next in line for the WBC belt. However, since ‘The Gypsy King’ has agreed to a two-fight deal with Anthony Joshua, Whyte will have to wait at least a year. Moreover, he will have to hope that Fury beats ‘AJ’.

If that is the case, then maybe we will get to witness Fury and Whyte settle their long-standing beef. However, for now, fans and followers of the sport will have to wait to see that match-up.

What do you make of this comment from Dillian Whyte? Do you think Tyson Fury really avoided him?
