Boxer, Dillian Whyte says Tyson Fury should ‘shut his big mouth up’ on social media and allow talks to resume for a British battle with Anthony Joshua.
Fury has declared on social media that his fight against Joshua is off after a contract was not finalised by a 5pm deadline, which had been set by the WBC champion.
But Whyte believes Fury has derailed plans with his public outbursts and advised his former opponent to remain silent while negotiations continue between both fighters.
Whyte told Sky Sports that “He (Fury) definitely needs to chill out”. “Some of the ways he does negotiate business, it’s all social media and shouting, screaming and calling people big dossers. I’m not an Anthony Joshua fan as well, I don’t really like both of them.
“Big fights sometimes it pays off to be a bit patient, and just shut his big mouth up a bit and stop talking nonsense about the big GK (Gypsy King).
“Let the fight happen, you want the fight to happen or you don’t want the fight to happen. If you want the fight to happen be patient, there’s a lot of money, a lot of things at stake so it will take time.
If the Fury fight falls through, Whyte insists he is ready to step in and face Joshua this winter as the pair seek a return to world title contention.
