John Fury reacts to Whyte signing for a fight with Tyson

Via Jim Calfa: John Fury congratulated Dillian Whyte today for signing to face his son WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury in their bout on April 23.

John is pleased that Whyte (28-2, 19 KOs) did not decide to withdraw from the fight due to dissatisfaction with the amount of money he was going to take.

Dillian didn’t get the 55/45 split he was expecting, but Team Fury justified the 80/20 split following what Tyson did in his final fight with Deontay Wilder.

Like so many boxing fans, John seemed relieved when Whyte, 34, decided to sign, as it would be a disappointment if he pulled out.

According to John, he hopes it will be a “Epic” fight, and he gives WBC’s obligatory challenger Whyte a “The Fist’s Chance” of victory.

Fury (31-0-1, 22 KOs) has started training and earlier today he said he will be offline for the next eight and a half weeks while preparing for his title defense against Whyte.

John Fury congratulates Dillian

“Just a congratulation Dillian Whyte has signed. He stepped on the plate and proved himself to be the man I thought he was,” John Fury told iFL TV.

“Do not respect him in any way, shape or form. It will be an epic battle. Tyson doesn’t take anyone lightly. He’ll train like the devil for this like anyone else because everyone has a puncher’s chance.

“He’s a strong guy, Dillian Whyte, and this is my first time joining in a couple of years. I’ll be there for eight weeks with Tyson, making sure everything is in order, putting everything in place.

“It won’t happen again in the UK for a while, so enjoy it all. The press conference will be huge. How do you know me. Front legs all the way.

“The same goes for all other family members. It is there to be enjoyed, and I will make it so that you can enjoy it. So stay tuned, and like I said, well done, Dillian Whyte.

It changes your life because I would do it much less. I would do it for hundreds of pounds, not millions, but that’s me. I am not a street dog. I’m not Dillian Whyte. The man worked hard for his No. 1 position.

“He has the opportunity he always wanted. I know deep inside that he won’t waste his chance, but I’m so glad Eddie Hearn is sick because it didn’t go the way he wanted it to.

“I can see that he is making a lot of excuses, but I know deep down he wants Dillian Whyte to do something different with him. Look, he’s come out as his own man.

“Good luck, Dillian Whyte. Train hard because Tyson is doing the same thing. May the groomsmen win. Good luck,” said John Fury.
