TYSON FURY sent what he described as a “concerned text” to Dillian Whyte in 2019 – and said he “looked after” his rival only to be “repaid with BS tweets”
Whyte, 32, blasted Fury on Twitter, calling him a “Gypsy Coward” and claimed he left the WBC champion “pathetically sobbing on the canvas” during sparring.
But the Gypsy King, 32, hit back by posting a text he says he sent Whyte after the heavyweight laboured past Mariusz Wach in Saudi Arabia on the undercard of Anthony Joshua’s rematch win against Andy Ruiz Jr.
Fury tweeted: “This is a text I sent @dillianwhyte back in December after his fight with Wach, I was concerned about him so I reached out to him.
“And this is how people treat you when your (sic) nice to them!!”
At the time the Brixton puncher had only just been cleared of any doping charges by United Kingdom Anti Doping, after it was revealed an ‘adverse finding’ emerged in his pre-fight drug test before beating Oscar Rivas last July.
Whyte lost his position as WBC mandatory with Fury going on to replace him and beat Deontay Wilder for the belt.
Fury claimed he realised Whyte was frustrated, and texted him encouraging words.
But the Gypsy King says this is not the first time he has helped out the British heavyweight while he was embroiled in a doping scandal.
Whyte was in 2012 banned for two years after testing positive for a banned substance, which he later proved came from a tainted supplement.
Fury claimed he hired the suspended heavyweight as a sparring partner while he was on the sidelines to financially help Whyte out.
He said: “And by the way when he was out on a ban years ago I kept him going with bringing him in to my camps sparing (sic) and paying him and looking after him like egg in a cake & this is how I’m repaid with BS tweets.
“There is a saying people take kindness for a weakness. & another men meet before mountains.”
Whyte responded to Fury’s picture: “Luke the fake professional victim looking for more attention stop running & fight me you coward.”
