DILLIAN WHYTE’S snub is the best way to KO the trash-talk-loving Tyson Fury, according to David Haye.

Fury, 33, beat world champ Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 with mind games, faultless boxing — and a bizarre Batman costume.

Dillian Whyte is winning the battle of mind games with Tyson Fury, says David Haye

Whyte snubbed his press conference and face-off with Fury ahead of their title bout

And he was more quick-witted and cutting than Deontay Wilder in the build-up to all three of their iconic clashes, which landed him his WBC heavyweight crown.

So 34-year-old Whyte snubbed a March 2 Wembley press conference and Thursday’s verbal face-off ahead of Saturday’s Wembley showdown. 

It left ex-world champ Haye thinking his fellow Londoner had grabbed the upper hand.

Hayes said: “If there is any way to get into Tyson Fury’s head, doing what Dillian did is the way to do it.

“Tyson probably had some pre-organised banter that he was going to give and wind him up, but he just carried on training.

“Strangely, that’s caused a lot of press on its own. 

“By not coming, he probably got more column inches than if he had.

“Tyson’s probably more irritated by the fact that he doesn’t have someone to have a bit of banter with before the fight.

“I actually think it works in Dillian’s favour, I think it might irritate Tyson Fury if anything.

“If it works psychologically in anyone’s favour I think it’s Dillian Whyte’s because Tyson Fury is a strategist and a mastermind of the brain game.”
