Fury and Whyte will go head to head today but the challenger has opted to stay at his training camp in Portugal
Tyson Fury has labeled the heavyweight Dillian Whyte “Frillian Whyteknickers” after he failed to appear in their first head-to-head bout.
Fury and Whyte will clash at Wembley on April 23 after Frank Warren won a bid for £31m.
Whyte has kept quiet since then and only signed on to fight with his spare time last month.
He then refused to fly from his training base in Portugal to the press conference in London.
And Fury trolled his opponent, saying: “He’s called the Thrillian Whyteknickers, because he’s as soft as what it says in the title.
“All this social media he showed his color today, he’s annoying and riotous, now he’s given me much more confidence.

“The way he’s going on about it, because he’ll see it fire in my eyes and thought he was being killed.
“It’s the fear and it’s the horror, all of the above and I don’t blame him for not being here. I’m going to be sent to a London prison like I’ve stretched him.
“I believe I can beat Dillian Whyte with one hand tied behind my back and one foot on the floor. For me, it’s just one more match to reach a milestone. I don’t care about it. people judge me because when I finish boxing it’s over. me. I had my five minutes of fame.”
Fury has encouraged Whyte to play his part in the build-up, frequently posting on social media to provoke his opponents.
Whyte has been waiting for the fight since first becoming the WBC Silver champion in 2017, but has yet to break his silence on the all-England clash.
And Fury admitted he was surprised by his challenger’s stance on not making it to the conference, but was always confident he would win the fight.

“We eat, sleep, and practice boxing.” “They’re always dangerous and they all have a puncher’s chance,” he added. So I always put a lot of pressure on myself and if I can’t be like Muhammad Ali when it comes to boxing this guy then I’m not as good.
