Dillian Whyte does not believe Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury met by chance last month in Spain, and he blows the pair of heavyweight world champions for it.
“That [meeting] looked so staged, ”Whyte told Sky Sports earlier this week about the ongoing chat that Joshua and Fury had in Marbella. “The two met at just the right time and place? And they just had a casual chat?
“How they talk on social media – they want to do this to each other. It looks like it was just staged. “
In June, Joshua and Fury agreed in principle on a bipartisan transaction, which will begin in the summer of 2021
Whyte, who meets Alexander Povetkin on August 22, became so annoyed by the “casual chat” that he even felt moved to call “AJ” and “Gypsy King” a couple of “jokers.”
“I was just laughing,” Whyte continued. “I thought to myself, ‘Look at these two jokers.'”
Whyte added that he would not have handled the situation at all if he were to encounter a future opponent.
“If I see someone and they talk smack about me and say they will do this and do it, then when I see you, have the same energy,” he said. “I will not stand outside your car window and stand on the sidewalk and talk to you. Come on, man. “
Before Joshua and Fury can face others, AJ must defend their combined heavyweight championship against Kubrat Pulev. Matchroom boxing promoter Eddie Hearn recently targeted in early December for the attack to happen. Meanwhile, WBC champion Fury is preparing a trilogy match with Deontay Wilder.
On Friday, the WBC confirmed with Sky Sports that Fury must face Whyte next if he can defeat Wilder first.
Therefore, Whyte can show Joshua how chatting with a future opponent should go.
