“I’m about to go off social media completely for the next 8 1⁄2 weeks,” Fury said. “Gonna go into training camp to give Dillian Whyte all the respect in the world. I’ll train for him like Muhammad I’m Hard Bruce Lee for this camp. I never underestimate anybody in my life and I give this man all the respect he deserves coming in as the WBC #1 ranked heavyweight challenger in the world today.
“Please don’t phone me, call me, email me, text me, or try to contact me in any way because I am out of bounds until May. For a fantastic time I will see you all the the press conference and I’ll be training away. Please appreciate my privacy and space. Until the press conference, guys, I should see you all soon.”
Fury and Whyte are scheduled to meet at London’s Wembley Stadium on April 23.
