Dillian Whyte demands “coward” Tyson Fury fight him in December after twice refusing

Dillian Whyte has demanded that two-time world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury stops dodging him and agrees to fight in December.

The Gypsy King is set to return to the ring next month when he will face Deontay Wilder for their trilogy fight in Nevada.

Fury was originally scheduled to fight Anthony Joshua in a unification bout this autumn but an arbitration judge ruled the 33-year-old needed to face the Bronze Bomber for a third time before moving on to alternative opponents.

And after their fight on October 9, Dillian Whyte has thrown his name into the ring, demanding he should be the next contender to overthrow the undefeated Fury.

The Body Snatcher took to Instagram on Wednesday evening to express his anger that Fury has dodged previous attempts to face him.

“This clown was ordered to fight me twice and refused to take it,” wrote Whyte to his 437,000 following.

He added: “December – let’s go Gypsy King.”

In a plea to the boxing community, Whyte posted: “I hope you, the fans, make this coward stick to his word and I’ll stick to mine and destroy him #fakegypsyking.”

Whyte is getting ready for his next opponent after defeating Alexander Povetkin via a fourth-round knockout in his most recent bout in March.

In a rematch of the August 2020 contest, Whyte this time got the better of the Russian having been knocked out by a brutal uppercut the previous summer.

The defeat meant a mandatory challenge of Tyson Fury’s WBC heavyweight championship was halted.

But fast-forward 12 months, Whyte is still desperate for a bout against the Gypsy King.
