Tyson Fury ready for showdown as Dillian Whyte says he ‘wants the violence to start’ and takes aim at Gypsy King for ‘talking shit’ ahead of world title fight at Wembley


It’s fight week, and both fighters have had their say as Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte prepare to meet in the ring in a battle for the WBC world heavyweight title.

The bell will finally ring on Fury vs Whyte at Wembley Stadium on Saturday night with 94,000 fans expected at the iconic home of English football.

And it looks like both fighters are eager to get the action started, as Fury posted on Intragram with a clear message to his British rival.

Posing with his WBC and The Ring belts, he wrote: “The king is coming.

“I’m looking forward to presenting a showcase at Wembley Stadium.”

Whyte shared a similar sentiment in his recent interview with BT Sport, but was far less subtle in his message to Fury ahead of Saturday’s showdown.

“I just want the violence now to be honest, I just want the violence to start,” the 34-year-old said.

“I’m calm, I’m cool, but inside it’s just rage and violence. It just happens in my head.

The Brixton-based heavyweight went on to slam Fury for his contradictions in pre-fight preparation, and went on to denounce the Gypsy King for “talking shit” – saying “his mouth is a toilet”.

“Everything he says is contradicted,” Whyte said.

“Why do a 12-week ‘Spartan boot camp’ for me? I am no one.

“You are the greatest of all time, the new 6ft 9in Ali, Tyson, Frazier and Foreman all rolled into one. So why are you training hard for me?

“Tyson Fury says a lot of bullshit,” he added.

Fury has been very vocal in the build-up to this fight, while Whyte has remained silent until recently

“His mouth is like a toilet, it keeps pulling and pulling and flushing – that’s Tyson Fury.

“He just rinses any random s*** that comes out of his mouth.”

As for Whyte’s comparison to Fury’s 6ft 9in frame, he is 6ft 4in and for his last fight he weighed 247lbs compared to Fury who weighed 277lbs for his trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder.

Fury has never been beaten as a professional with the only minor flaw in his record being a draw in his first fight with Wilder, while Whyte has two losses to his name in 30 professional fights.

The first came against Anthony Joshua in 2015 and the second was inflicted by Alexander Povetkin, whom Whyte has since avenged in a rematch.
