Dillian Whyte says Tyson Fury should ‘shut his big mouth up’ on social media and allow talks to resume for a British battle with Anthony Joshua.
Fury has declared on social media that his fight against Joshua is off after a contract was not finalised by a 5pm deadline, which had been set by the WBC champion.
But Whyte believes Fury has derailed plans with his public outbursts and advised his former opponent to remain silent while negotiations continue between both fighters.
“He (Fury) definitely needs to chill out,” Whyte told Sky Sports. “Some of the ways he does negotiating business, it’s all social media and shouting, screaming and calling people big dossers. I’m not an Anthony Joshua fan as well, I don’t really like both of them.
“Big fights sometimes it pays off to be a bit patient, and just shut his big mouth up a bit and stop talking s**t about the big GK (Gypsy King).
Whyte has experienced organising fights with both men in the past and took a media silence at one point during the build-up to his fight with Fury earlier this year having initially been unhappy with negotiations.
He admits his fight with Joshua in 2015 had been more straightforward to make given the position they were both in at that stage of their careers.
