It seems Tyson Fury doesn’t have just a couple of rivals in the heavyweight division. Because every day, there’s some or the other contender coming up to take a dig at the WBC champ. This time, it is Fury’s long-time rival and compatriot, Dillian Whyte, who went all out against the lineal heavyweight champion.

For a long time now, ‘The Body Snatcher’ has expressed his desire to fight for heavyweight gold. He’s even surpassed umpteen challenges posed by decorated fighters in the division. However, he’s always been far from getting his shot at the coveted heavyweight strap .

Whyte recently interacted with SunSport, where he spoke about ‘The Gypsy King’ and gave a scathing review of Fury and his recent activities in the sport.

For God’s sake, don’t get carried away listening to a single thing that conman says.”

“His best attribute as a boxer is just getting the public to believe any of his bull***t”

“I am the easiest boxer in the world to make a fight with. You call me or my people, offer us the venue, date and purse and we say yes or no. But Fury and his team talk rubbish.”

“They have no interest in ever fighting me, he has been mandated to fight me twice and ducked out of it — the same as he did with the Wladimir Klitschko rematch he swerved.”

Now, Whyte, who sits with the WBC interim belt, wants to lock horns with the champion to fulfill his aspirations. He’s called out ‘The Gypsy King’ many times, but the latter hasn’t quite responded to booking a fight with him.

On October 9, Tyson Fury will face Deontay Wilder first. If he gets past him, ‘The Gypsy King’ will be free to take on anyone else in contention. Most likely Dillian Whyte, Anthony Joshua, or Oleksandr Usyk.

That said, Whyte will have to just cross his fingers and pray for Fury’s win, in order to get the payday he’d want for fighting Fury in the future. If all things fall in place, they could collide sometime in 2022, at the earliest.
