DILLIAN WHYTE says he wants a ‘f***ing war’ after Tyson Fury called on him and Anthony Joshua to step aside to allow a unified heavyweight fight against Oleksandr Usyk.
WBC belt holder Fury, 33, has been ordered to face Whyte but Body Snatcher is stalling on agreeing a deal due to salary issues.
And Matchroom boxing promoter Eddie Hearn hinted that the possibility Joshua steps aside for a rematch with Usyk.
But avoiding the side didn’t seem to be on Whyte’s mind as he delivered a defiant message to Fury.
Whyte said: “I just want to make war. That’s all I want is to fight for the best.
“Tyson Fury, Anthony Joshua, Eddie Hearn – all these things,” he said, she said “the *** bulls.”
The stalemate has frustrated Fury. A lot, he has branded as ‘cowardly’ Britons.
In a video posted to Twitter on Tuesday, Fury said: “I’m ready to fight this weekend.

“I have been training for three weeks, how long does a man need to train?
“[Anthony] Joshua is a coward, [Oleksandr] Usyk’s ap *** y, and Dillian Whyte didn’t want to fight.
“So, if you can prove me wrong, start fighting in your cowardly pair. You’re all cowards. You’re all conscripts.
