The 'Concerned' Text Tyson Fury Sent To Dillian Whyte Back In December
Tyson Fury has revealed a text message he sent to Dillian Whyte back in December that proves he "looked after" his rival.
Whyte recently took to Twitter and unloaded on the WBC heavyweight champion, calling him the "Gypsy Coward" and recalling the time he left Fury "sobbing on the floor."
Fury then hit back with a message he sent to the 32-year-old following his unconvincing win against Maruisz Wach on the undercard of Anthony Joshua vs Andy Ruiz Jr in Saudi Arabia.
The 31-year-old tweeted: "This is a text I sent @dillianwhyte back in December after his fight with Wach, I was concerned about him so I reached out to him.
"And this is how people treat you when your nice to them!! And by the way when he was out on a ban years ago I kept him going with bringing him in..."
Fury claims that he hired Whyte to be a sparring partner when the 32-year-old was struggling financially after being hit with a two-year ban in 2012.
Whyte was suspended after testing positive for a banned substance which he then went on to prove came from a tainted supplement.
Fury then went on to add: "To my camps sparing and paying him and looking after him like egg in a cake & this is how I'm repaid with BS tweets. There is a saying people take kindness for a weakness. & another men meet before mountains."
Whyte's original comments towards Fury came after the latter mocked Whyte for taking a fight against Alexander Povetkin at Matchroom Fight Camp in August.
Eddie Hearn announced the exciting line-up of fights for August last week and they will be staged at the Matchroom headquarters in Brentwood.
Matchroom Boxing will resume on August 1 with a card headlined by Sam Eggington vs. Ted Cheeseman.
