Britain’s heavyweight Dillian Whyte issued a challenge to WBC champion Tyson Fury, but the answer he received might not be the one he was looking for.
Whyte is the mandatory challenger for the WBC strap fo the last three years, but God knows why he is still yet to face the champion. He never met the former WBC king Deontay Wilder. Instead, Tyson Fury fought the American twice and he captured the gold and green belt this past February after he demolished Wilder.
Now “The Body Snatcher” is kindly reminding Fury that he has to fight him sooner than later, as he went even further stating that he has dropped Tyson numerous times in sparring.

“He just needs to stop talking rubbish and let’s have a go,” Whyte, who is preparing to fight Alexander Povetkin next, said about Fury to Sky Sports.
“It will be a major fight. Let’s have it out.
“He’s the one who came 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. Me and Tyson Fury sparred and I bashed him about and dropped him on multiple occasions. Simple as that.
“He said before beating Wilder, when I beat Wilder, I’m going to give Dillian Whyte his title shot. He just talks rubbish, I’m just sick and tired of it. This is war, let’s go.”
But the 31-years-old Fury is not really interested in defending his title against Dillian Whyte, at least not right after his third fight with Wilder.
