, Tyson Fury FINALLY accepts Dillian Whyte title fight after Anthony Joshua turns down £66m offer to step aside

TYSON FURY has told Dillian Whyte that he has finally got his WBC heavyweight world title shot.

The Gypsy King holds the green and gold belt that Whyte is mandatory challenger for.

But the 6ft 9in undefeated ace wanted Whyte to accept around £5million to step aside and let him fight WBA, IBF and WBO boss Oleksandr Usyk.

The Ukraine sensation is contractually obliged to rematch Anthony Joshua but AJ was considering a similar deal in the region of £15m to let Fury vs Usyk happen – in Saudi Arabia – IF he was guaranteed a shot at the eventual winner and holder of all four belts.

After four delayed purse bids for the Fury vs Whyte clash, the final auction is now scheduled for Mexico City on Friday, Fury suggested the negotiations were over and Whyte had finally got his shot.

Putting on his best cockney accent, the Morecambe giant boomed: “I can’t wait to punch Dillian Whyte’s face right in, mate.

“I am going to give him the best hiding he has ever had in his life.

“Dillian Whyte, train hard because you are going to get annihilated, bum.”

Fury’s latest outburst came just hours after Usyk’s manager had accused the Brit of being the man at fault for holding up the division.

Egis Klimas seemed to be sick of Fury publicly blaming the three other fighters for delaying this summer’s super-fight schedule.

The mentor to boxing icons like Usyk and Vasiliy Lomachenko said: “Before the next time you mention Oleksandr Usyk’s name, check with your team, management, advisers and promoters who agreed with all terms and conditions.

“It looks like you are the one who is holding this wagon up, yelling and talking is cheap.”
