‘Bum’s getting KOd… again’ – Tyson Fury sends message to Dillian Whyte while working out for bitter grudge match

, ‘Bum’s getting KOd… again’ – Tyson Fury sends message to Dillian Whyte while working out for bitter grudge match

TYSON FURY goaded that ‘bum’ Dillian Whyte is ‘getting knocked out again’ as he trained for their grudge match.

Fury has started camp to fight his long-time rival and former training partner in a WBC mandatory title defence, targeted for April in the UK.

And in a social media post, the Gypsy King mocked Whyte’s 2020 KO loss to 42-year-old Alexander Povetkin.

Fury said: “Dillian Whyte, you’re getting it you bum. Bum’s getting knocked out again, but by a king this time, not by an old man.”

The heavyweight rivals were subject to a record-breaking purse bid which was won by Fury’s promoter Frank Warren following a £30.6million offer.

And all that is left is confirming the date and venue before contracts can officially be signed.

Whyte, 33, has not fought since knocking out Russian Povetkin in their rematch last March.

Whereas Fury, 33, dramatically closed out his epic trilogy series with Deontay Wilder, 36, in 11 rounds in October.

He is now preparing to defend the WBC title he won in 2020 for the second time, and blasted Whyte in an interview with ESPN.

Fury said: “I just think he is an average looking heavyweight. Six feet three inches, 245 pounds, slow feet, slow hands and average power.

“Talk about tailor-made for a gifted boxer like myself, I should chop him down like a big old tree like cutting through cheese really.”

Cardiff’s Principality Stadium was an early frontrunner to host the all-British showdown.

But the home of Welsh rugby appears out of the the picture now, with Wembley or West Ham’s London Stadium other options.
