In the latest indication that Tyson Fury will be going ahead with a mandatory title defense against Dillian Whyte, Fury has taken direct aim at Whyte in his most recent vitriol as reported by Sky Sports.

Fury and Whyte have been in negotiations for some time now with the WBC postponing a purse bid order until tomorrow in order to give the sides more time to hash out the details between them. Now Fury is insisting that he’s geared up to go and ready to put a beating on Whyte once and for all.

“I can’t wait to punch Whyte’s face in! “I’ll give him the best hiding he’s ever had. Whyte, train hard! Because you are getting annihilated.”

Should Fury and Whyte not strike a deal by tomorrow it seems the WBC will presumably, finally, go through with a purse bid to where they’ve already ruled that Fury would be entitled to 80% of the winning bid, while Whyte remains in arbitration with the sanctioning body.
