Dillian Whyte has been the No. 1 challenger for more than 900 days. Regardless, he has still not received a shot at the heavyweight crown. Instead, Tyson Fury fought the WBC heavyweight champ Deontay Wilder and ended up beating him earlier this year. With a trilogy between Wilder and Fury set for later this year, the chances that Whyte receives his long due shot are pretty thin.

Tyson Fury shares a message that he had sent to Dillian Whyte

‘The Gypsy King’ shared the screenshot of a message that he had sent to Whyte. Fury sent the message following Whyte’s victory over Mariusz Wach on the undercard of Andy Ruiz Jr. vs Anthony Joshua. Fury attempted to motivate Whyte after seeing the latter’s interview. He even sent him his regards for a great year ahead.

The WBC heavyweight champ was disappointed over the treatment he received from Whyte. He even reminded Dillian of the time when he was facing a ban in 2012. Whyte tested positive for Methylhexaneamine. Consequently, the UK Anti-Doping organization suspended him for two years.

Fury said that he brought Whyte in his camp and took care of him financially.

Given Fury’s schedule, it looks difficult to squeeze in Whyte somewhere. However, Whyte’s promoter Eddie Hearn has expressed hope that his client can fight for the belt sometime at the beginning of next year. Meanwhile, ‘The Body Snatcher’ will defend the interim belt against Alexander Povetkin in August.
