“Biggest fight in years and the press conference is gonna be conducted via a f***in’ Zoom call.”

And another said: “We’re still doing Zoom press conferences?!?”

One remarked: “A Zoom press conference? F**k me what’s the point haha.”

Another said: “Finally.”

Whyte hasn’t done any interviews ahead of his showdown with the Gypsy King but broke his silence on the fight last week.

He tweeted: “I’m ready. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone on the 23rd of April @wembleystadium. #LetsGooo!!!!”

Fury claimed Whyte’s absence from their first presser was a blessing in disguise as he would’ve laid him out right there and then.

“It’s good he’s not here, otherwise I’d be remanded in a London jail cell somewhere.

“The build-up to this fight will be fantastic because Tyson Fury versus his own shadow sells for sure. I will make sure people are entertained.

“My personal message to Dillian Whyte today is this: I will win this fight for England and for St George on St George’s Day. There we go.
