WBC interim heavyweight champion Dillian Whyte has only three days to go to sign the contract for his upcoming fight against Tyson Fury, and the deadline has been set by none other than the WBC world champion himself. The fight is targeted for 23rd April and ahead of the bout, Fury has been heating up a rivalry with his fellow Briton, and the latest fuel to the fire between the two pugilists is the ultimatum that “The Gypsy King” has given to Whyte, failing which the latter will miss the world title shot.
Taking to Twitter, in the same way he called Dillian Whyte ‘White Feathers’ earlier this month, the undefeated world champion Tyson Fury warned “The Body Snatcher” that he has only three days to go to sign the fight contract, which means Whyte will have to finish the task before 19th February, failing which the fight would fall apart.
“Dillian Whyte, you little sucker,” said the brusque Briton in a 15-second clip he tweeted while on a morning run, “you’ve got three days left, b***h. Sign the contract, p***y!”

Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte likely heading to Wembley Stadium in London
Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte won a record $40 million purse bid jointly by Top Rank and Queensbury Promotions, with Top Rank president Todd duBoef revealing 23rd April as the fight date. Even though the venue has not been confirmed yet, the bout will remain on English soil and Queensbury Promotion chief Frank Warren even named Wembley Stadium in London as a possible option that can hold 80k spectators.
In an all-English affair taking place right in the UK, the fight is anticipated to be one of the biggest of the year, as well as the next chapter in Fury’s boxing career after a prolonged rivalry with Deontay Wilder which ended with a trilogy fight in October last year.
