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.
