Fury’s former opponent, Dillian Whyte, labeled it as ‘silly’ and claimed that ‘Big fights’ take time.

White, who is away from the active headlines after he got knocked out earlier this year, came up bold on ‘The Gypsy King’.

In an interview with Sky Sports Boxing, he said, “I think it could happen but Tyson Fury is putting a lot of pressure on not intelligently, he’s just trying to use social media and it’s been a bit silly. Really these big fights take time because a lot that goes into it the team’s got a lot, so there’s a lot of commercial things and protecting your best interest and other things and protecting your rights and obviously these guys are in two different TV stations.”

According to Dillian, signing a contract for such a big fight is not a simple thing. Fury is acting like a ‘big dosser’.

What did Eddie Hearn say on Tyson Fury?

Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, who did not believe in Fury’s words and share an intense feud, was quite disappointed with Fury’s move. While him and Fury’s promoter were trying to reach common terms and make a deal for this fight, Fury’s irresponsible behavior messed up everything.

Speaking to media personnel, Hearn said, “Tyson Fury wants to fight Manuel Charr. It’s pretty obvious and there is absolutely no way this contract gets signed on a Monday. Because it’s still a long way to be done. All of a sudden, He wants it to sign in 24 hours. No chance so let him do whatever he wanna do. If he really wants the fight, he’ll let the process unfold and we’ll sign the contract when it’s in the right place.”

Next, he targeted Fury for making false statements. Recalling Fury’s retirement promise, he claimed that he was okay if Fury goes off.
