Whyte claims he ‘bashed’ Tyson Fury in sparring and ‘dropped him multiple times’ but Gypsy King remembers it differently

DILLIAN WHYTE claimed he ‘bashed’ Tyson Fury around in sparring and ‘dropped him on multiple occasions’.

The Brixton ace returned to the heavyweight division title picture with a brilliant rematch victory over Alexander Povetkin on Saturday.

Dillian Whyte has previously claimed he floored and ‘bashed up’ Tyson Fury in sparring
The Gypsy King slammed the Body Snatcher as a liar as he denied those claims

He knocked out the Russian in Gibraltar in the fourth to gain revenge for his brutal defeat in August.

Despite him regaining the WBC interim belt, it looks like the 32-year-old Body Snatcher may still face a lengthy wait for his first world-title shot.

Champs Anthony Joshua and Fury have already agreed a whopping £200m two-fight deal to unify the division.

Whyte has been in this position before and it appears he is sick of waiting around, jokingly saying he would break AJ’s legs in order to take his place against the Gypsy King.

And he has every confidence he can become the first man to beat Fury after allegedly flooring him already.

Speaking during a previous appearance on The Boxing Show on Sky Sports News, he said: “He’s the one that come out and said he beat me up in the gym and stuff like that. I can tell you now, that didn’t happen.

“I don’t like telling sparring stories, but people in the game know. They know about me.

“Well, me and Tyson Fury sparred and I bashed him about and dropped him on multiple occasions. Simple as that.


“If I was such an easy fight, why is he not in any rush to fight me? He said before beating Wilder, ‘When I beat Wilder, I’m going to give Dillian Whyte his title shot.’ He just talks rubbish. This is war, let’s go.”

The Body Snatcher added: “It makes me angry and it frustrates me because Tyson Fury refused to fight me in a mandated fight for the WBC diamond belt.

“And they took my mandatory position away and gave it to Tyson Fury after he fought Otto Wallin who was ranked around 1,000,000 in the world.

“It’s a joke, how can he fight Tom Schwarz and Otto Wallin and then be the WBC mandatory contender after I have been beating top-ten guys back-to-back?

“The fans and the boxing world need to put pressure on the WBC and Tyson Fury to fight me next, it’s a joke.

“I have been risking the No1 position since 2017, I have spent hundreds of thousands of pounds in sanctioning fees and won every WBC belt I have been eligible for and beaten two former world champions. It’s my turn.”

However, Fury seems to have a different recollection of events between him and Whyte and called the Londoner out as a liar.

He told BT Sport: “Dillian Whyte is a bum, untrue. Dillian Whyte couldn’t drop his granny, never mind the ‘Gypsy King.

“Who has Dillian Whyte ever dropped, Lucas Browne…please. Who else, who has he ever dropped?

“I’ve never seen him drop anyone.

“He even had to cheat Dereck Chisora out of a fight, grabbing him and holding him because Eddie Hearn told him to. What a bum…useless!”
