Whyte only claimed he dropped ‘two-sided’ Tyson Fury in sparring after being trash talked – The Sun | The Sun

DILLIAN WHYTE labelled Tyson Fury a "two-sided guy" and insists he only revealed he floored the Gypsy King in sparring because he was sick of being trash-talked.

Whyte lost to Fury via knockout in April in front of 94,000 fans at Wembley.


Speaking about Fury, Whyte revealed in 2020 that he had "dropped him on multiple occasions" in a sparring session.

And the Brixton Bodysnatcher then said last year that he decided to reveal all after becoming sick of Fury's taunts.

'TWO-SIDED GUY'

Speaking on The AK and Barak Show, Whyte said: “Yeah, well he started saying stuff about me so I said come on you know what happened in the gym.

“You know what went down. I never went out and said anything he did. But Fury is a very two-sided guy.

"Like sometimes he says something and you think the dude's cool and I ain’t got a beef with him then. The next minute he starts talking a load of rubbish.

“You’re like, ‘Are we cool, are we beefing or are you talking sense. What’s going on?'"

Fury previously said that he has beaten Whyte in the gym many times, describing him as a “heavy bag on legs”.

In 2021, Fury even claimed that Whyte only wanted to face him because he was protected by the coronavirus lockdown.

The Gypsy King posted 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."

But Whyte ended up getting a shot at Fury after the WBC champion's 11th round knockout of Deontay Wilder in October last year.
