TYSON FURY claims he has set up a JustGiving page for Dillian Whyte in a bid to ensure the fight takes place.
Whyte is yet to sign his part of the contract to confirm that the WBC title fight is on with claims he wants extra cash to promote it.
Fury revealed he has set up a JustGiving page via a social media video
Whyte has not yet signed his part of the contract for the Fury fight
And if he fails to put pen to paper by the deadline of February 19 then Fury‘s promoter Frank Warren insists the fight will be off.
Earlier this month, Warren won the purse bids to stage the heavyweight showdown – which is set to be broadcast on BT Sport Box Office.
Whyte is entitled to 20 per cent of the purse bid – meaning he will earn a minimum of £6million.
But Fury remains concerned that Whyte may still pull out of the fight – with the Brit challenger keeping quiet about what he plans to do.
And The Gypsy King has tried to antagonise Whyte into signing for the fight by insisting he has set up a JustGiving page to make sure he turns up to the press conference.
In a video posted on his social media accounts, Fury said: “Hi guys, just a quick one.
“I’m setting up a JustGiving page for Dillian Whyte so that he can turn up for the press conference.
“And I’m going to donate first. My donation is 47p, you useless dosser.”
Fury would head into a clash against Whyte as a strong favourite.
The 6ft 9in giant has not been beaten in his professional career and has held all four world heavyweight title belts at one time or another.
Meanwhile, Whyte has lost to both Anthony Joshua and Alexander Povetkin – with this set to be his first world title fight.
The Body Snatcher has secured impressive victories over the likes of Povetkin, Derek Chisora, Joseph Parker and Oscar Rivas.

But he would be a big underdog against Fury – who recently claimed he is going to switch stances for the Whyte clash.
After sharing a video training with his dad John, he said: “Great work with poppa bear, pads working out for the bum white [sic].
“Probs gonna do southpaw this fight just to show the world how good I am vs White [sic] feathers.”
