“You know why? He listened to what I said. He’s thought ‘hang on a minute. John knows his stuff, I’m not fighting Wallin. I’m going to get turned over probably, I won’t get my title shot then.’

“It takes them to listen to my videos, it’s all on, and then he hears me talking about Wallin – because Wallin is a danger to anybody.

“Tyson is in a different league to these heavyweights. Different. But if you want to get a payday, be nice to him. Say nice things about him and he might just give you a payday.

“Dillian Whyte, be nice to Tyson, start blowing smoke up his you know what and you might get a shot, kid.”
