The champ Fury says that the Brixton brawler should be sending him gifts over the huge fight purse

The 33-year-old champ spoke to Queensbury Promotions ahead of the all-British clash.

He claimed: “If I was Whyte 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.”

The Brixton brawler stopped bad-mouthing Fury weeks before their domestic dust-up was finalised.

The ‘Gypsy King’ reckons it was to save Whyte’s percentage of the pot, which is already split 80-20 in Fury’s favour.

The total of the purse is £31million, which will see Whyte take home £6m for his first world title fight.

The pair sold out Wembley in a matter of minutes for the anticipated title defence.

The duo know each other well from sparring sessions back in their younger days.

Non-British ‘neutral’ judges have been selected for the bout, following the farcical scoring Jack Catterall’s showdown with Josh Taylor.

The British Board of Boxing Control has vowed to launch an investigation into the scoring of Taylor’s controversial title defence.
