Dillian Whyte rips Tyson Fury’s choice of opponent; reveals ‘Gypsy King’ turned down his offer

Dillian Whyte has revealed Tyson Fury rejected his offer for a fight in September as he slammed the self-styled Gypsy King for his choice of opponent.

Fury, who will be fighting for the first time in two-and-a-half-years, is scheduled to trade punches with Sefer Seferi of Albania in Manchester on Saturday.

Whyte, however, is unhappy with Fury’s ‘disgraceful’ choice, given the fact that he keeps calling out the biggest names in the heavyweight division.

“Who is Sefer Seferi, isn’t he a promoter? That’s garbage. I understand Fury has been out for a while and needs to make a comeback but that is garbage… it is a p*** take for boxing fans,” Whyte said.

“He says he is the best fighter in the world now, that he can beat [Deontay] Wilder and Anthony Joshua and calls other guys ‘bums’. But then why is he not fighting anyone decent?

“He is basically fighting a scrub. I think it is disgraceful.”

Whyte, whose only career defeat has come at the hands of world champion Anthony Joshua, further claimed that Fury has never been tested in the ring.

“Tyson is awkward. He is big but he is not the strongest. He is tall but there are ways around that like putting the hurt on early,” Whyte said of the 6’9” Fury.

“He shows courage but he has never been nailed by a true heavyweight. That is why he needs more than a year before he fights anyone decent.

“I offered him a fight for September this year, after he would have had two warm-up fights, and he turned it down and rightly so because his timing will be off and I understand that.

“But don’t go around shouting you can beat everyone when you don’t want to take the fights.”

Meanwhile, in what will perhaps be his biggest fight after Joshua, Whyte will take on former WBO champion Joseph Parker of New Zealand in London come July 28.
