Stop Complaining – Tyson Fury Slams Dillian Whyte says he should be grateful to me

On Monday night (the WBC’s deadline day), Whyte finally signed his contract to face Fury on April 23 at Wembley Stadium in London.

In means the Bodysnatcher will finally get his heavyweight world title shot.

Warren joined White and Jordan on talkSPORT and said there will be a press conference next week for the pair.
Fury has aimed jibes at Whyte on social media claiming his challenger wants to be paid to show up to such press conferences.

“There will be a press conference next week and Tyson will certainly be there and will certainly be promoting the fight,” Warren told talkSPORT.

“The fact he’s coming off social media is that he doesn’t want to be bothered while he is training.

Warren joined talkSPORT to give the latest on Fury vs Whyte
“Of course he will promote the fight, he’s that type of fighter.
“I hope he [Dillian Whyte] does join him. He’s obliged to. It’s part of his duty as a fighter to offer an announcement of the fight.

“In my whole time in boxing, I’ve never been involvement a fight, where either I’ve won or lost a purse bid, where the fighters concerned don’t turn up for the announcement of the fight.

“Especially for the chunk of money he’s getting paid.
“He’s complained all this time that he never got this shot and has been waiting all this time to get a shot at the title.

“Thankfully, we’ve delivered it for him. He’s getting $2million more than he would be getting if Matchroom had won the purse bid, so he should be absolutely delighted.”

Fury has sent plenty of messages to Whyte on social media
Warren won with a record bid of $41million (£30.6m) – confirmed to be the biggest purse bid in boxing history – while Eddie Hearn bid $32m (£23.9m).

The promoter also told Whyte he should be grateful for his opportunity to fight for the title.

He continued: “Let me explain something. There’s a period where the governing body, in this case the WBC, give all parties a period of time to negotiate.

“If you can’t agree terms then it goes to purse bids as you haven’t agreed terms. That’s what has happened.

“We put in the purse bid and we expect him to be professional and make himself available, like all boxers do, like Khan and Brook, like Josh Taylor has done.

“It’s unprofessional. He’s getting well paid to do it. There certainly will be some consequences [if he doesn’t attend].
“He should be grateful we’ve put this massive purse bid in. It’s the biggest purse bid ever in world boxing.
“He should be delighted. As irony has had it, we are delivering the world title shot. He’s waited all that time.

Warren said Fury got around 20 per cent to fight Wilder
“It’s not my fault, I’m not his promoter. Let’s get it right, he did turn down the opportunity to fight Anthony Joshua for $4m or $5m, whatever he was going to get paid.

“All this nonsense about 20 per cent, Tyson Fury got less than 20 per cent to go to Germany to win the world title.
“He got just about 20 per cent to fight Deontay Wilder and took his chance.”
