Tyson Fury hits back at Dillian Whyte ‘bashing’ claims saying he’s only so mouthy as he’s protected by the lockdown – The Sun

TYSON FURY has told Dillian Whyte to keep his trap shut – and reckons he is only being mouthy because he is "protected" by the coronavirus lockdown.

Londoner Whyte continued his war of words with the Gypsy King this week by claiming he knocked him down in sparring.

But Fury hit back at Whyte, who cannot return to England after flying out to Portugal for a training camp, where he remains.

Fury said on Twitter: "Funny how everyone wants to fight during Covid-19, when there are no sports events happening.

"Also I have a contract with the @bronzebomber first and when I win that I'll have the fight with Joshua as undisputed comes before mandatory. Happy hunting."

Whyte, who beat Anthony Joshua early in his career, had gone on the offensive to bait Fury.

He told Sky Sports: "It makes me angry and it frustrates me because Tyson Fury refused to fight me in a mandated fight for the WBC diamond belt."

The Body Snatcher added: "Me and Tyson Fury sparred and I bashed him about and dropped him on multiple occasions. Simple as that."

But is is unlikely that the pair will get it on until at least the end of 2021, if at all.

Fury will fight Deontay Wilder first, followed by Joshua.

The coronavirus lockdown has put those dates back even further.
