Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte have been going at it on Twitter after the lineal heavyweight champion revealed his intention to face his compatriot in the ring.
Fury outlined his five-fight plan ahead of his eventual retirement, with a bout with Whyte between his trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder and potential unification bout with Anthony Joshua mooted as a possibility.
Whyte clearly wasn’t impressed with Fury’s words, taking to Twitter and appearing to accuse the WBC heavyweight champion of the world of taking cocaine.

Fury took the bait and immediately replied to Whyte, referring to him as a ‘chinless piece of s**t’ and stirring the pot further, clearly with the intention of winding his rival up.
@DillianWhyte is a chinless piece of shit, who is a massive shithouse was offered 5 mill to fight AJ and declined,

Whyte then accused Fury of TWICE dodging him. He appears to be absolutely prepared to step through the ropes and take on Fury, were the fight to actually be arranged and the contracts signed.

Of course, it’s not unusual for fighters to be mouthing off against each other on Twitter, especially in the heavyweight division. Whether this fight actually ever happens is another matter entirely…
