Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte Engage in a Back-and-Forth on Twitter

Last weekend, the WBC heavyweight champ, Tyson Fury, attended the Canelo Alvarez vs Billy Joe Saunders contest at the AT&T Stadium. In the super middleweight bout, Fury’s compatriot, Saunders, suffered his maiden career defeat. A whopping uppercut landed by Canelo Alvarez struck the Brit, which left him with an eye injury.

As the fight concluded, Saunders’ father, who was ringside, went to check in to his son, but he badly got dashed by a security guard. Fury was standing right behind him, but he didn’t really take the matter into his own hands to control the tussle.

As a result, the interim WBC heavyweight champ, Dillian Whyte, addressed the entire scenario and launched verbal attacks on Fury.

@Tyson_Fury is a coward how can you stand by and watch @bjsaunders_ father get treated like this and you didn’t jump the barrier and at lest try to stop them man handling him you are a coward all mouth #fightingman #ALLMOUTH,” Whyte wrote on his Twitter.

 

Saunders‘ family members and other teammates jumped in between, and this ignited the brawl. After a while, the tussle became so big that several other security guards had to come to cool the matter down.

Many felt that the security guard unnecessarily pushed Tom Saunders, which later resulted in a mammoth tussle. This entire brawl left Dillian Whyte fuming.

Tyson Fury fires back at Dillian Whyte

The undefeated Tyson Fury, who is one of the best trash talkers in boxing, never fails to stun his opponents with fiery responses. That said, he didn’t hold himself back in responding to ‘The Body Snatcher’ in his own eccentric way. He took it to his official Twitter handle and wrote, “@DillianWhyte ‘The Can Man’ More like ‘The Can Get Knocked Out By A 41 Year Old Man’ #BUM”

‘The Gypsy King’ took a dig at Whyte’s defeat to Alexander Povetkin in 2020.

It seems the heavyweight division has birthed another humongous rivalry between two stout technicians from Britain. And it’ll be interesting to see if this feud actually gets settled inside the ring.
