And The Gypsy King believes Whyte has gone quiet to save his £6million purse

And Fury believes the Brixton banger zipped his mouth so he wouldn’t be further stiffed on his split of the £31million purse for their April war at Wembley.

He told Queensbury Promotions: “I did tell him on Instagram a few months ago, every time you call me a bad name your percentage will go down.

“He didn’t call me many bad names after that. That’s why he went quiet. He did go quiet when I did tell him that.”

Whyte was left furious with the 80-20 split in Fury’s favour, which will see him take home £6m for his first world title fight.

But Fury roared: “I think 20 per cent for him is more than fair. He could get a possible [£10million] if he beats me.

“That there compared to his last fight when he got £250,000, that’s a lot of money.

“That’s seven times more than I got to fight Wladimir Klitschko.

“I was like ten times bigger than he was on that stage, so he’s got to be very very thankful to me.

“If I was him I’d be sending me gifts and stuff through the post.

“I think he thinks everybody owes him something, I’m not sure why or what he’s done to think that.

“We’ll find out on the night, he can’t run away in the ring.”

Fury and Whyte – who sold out Wembley in a matter of minutes – know each other well from sparring sessions back in the day.
