When asked to recall the sparring story, Whyte initially told Sky Sports: “Tyson Fury can tell it.

“I’m not one for going around shouting sparring stories, Tyson Fury can tell you guys what happened.

“I’m not one to go, ‘I done this, I done that.’ He’s the one who come out and said he beat me up in the gym and stuff like that.

“I can tell you now, that didn’t happen. I don’t like telling sparring stories but people on the grapevine know.”

However, when pressed for more information, Whyte opened up and said: “Well me and Tyson Fury sparred, but I bashed him about and dropped him on multiple occassions, it’s simple as that.

“If I was such an easy fight, why is he not in any rush to fight me?

“He said before beating Wilder, ‘When I beat Wilder, I’m gonna give Dillian Whyte his title shot after beating Wilder.’

“He just talks rubbish. I’m just sick and tired of it.”
