Dillian Whyte responds to Tyson Fury and tells him he ‘couldn’t even knock out a w**k’ as war of words continues
Fury had earlier accepted a challenge to fight Whyte and said he would knock him out in six rounds
Dillian Whyte has responded to Tyson Fury’s claims he will ‘knock him out within six rounds’ by telling the Gypsy King ‘he couldn’t even knock out a w**k’.
The WBC have ordered Fury and Whyte to fight a final eliminator for the right to face American WBC champion Deontay Wilder, who takes on former Anthony Joshua opponent, Dominic Breazeale in New York on Saturday.
Whyte, who faces Oscar Rivas in the main event at London’s O2 on July 20, declared exclusively to talkSPORT that he is ready to fight Fury for the right to become Wilder’s next mandatory challenger.
“I just want to send a special message to the WBC who have supported me in my comeback and have been very fair with me,” Fury said.

“I recently saw your quote about fighting for the interim title against Dillian Whyte, and I thank you for your interest.
“But because I beat Deontay Wilder, though I did’t get the decision I still won and the world knows.
“I propose that we make me and Dillian Whyte for the WBC diamond belt, not the interim belt.
“I will take care of Dillian Whyte and I will knock him out within six rounds.”
Whyte has since responded to Fury’s message on his own social media channels.
He wrote on Twitter: “Let’s do it then @gypsyking101 @wbcboxing @wbcmoro I’d fight you anytime anywhere 7 days a week and 5 times on Sunday I look forward to putting you to sleep #LetsGobaby.”
In a follow-up message, Whyte mocked the Gypsy King over his six round knockout claim.
“When was the last time you knock someone out mate @Tyson_Fury couldn’t even knock out a wxxk,” he wrote.
In Fury’s 28-fight professional career, he has won 19 by knockout though his last stoppage came in 2014, when he ended his bout with Joey Abell in four rounds.
