Dillian Whyte has broken his silence after finally signing his contract to face Tyson Fury.
Whyte will get the chance to put hands on his old sparring partner on April 23, with SunSport understanding their long-awaited clash could be held at Wembley.
And the Brixton Body Snatcher took to social media hours after sending his contract to the WBC to show he’s already hard at work for the bout.
On Tuesday afternoon, Whyte posted a video of himself dripping with sweat following an intense workout to his Instagram story.
‘Work’ was emblazoned across the video, in which the interim WBC heavyweight champ sang: “Ain’t no sunshine when she goes away.”
Fury, 33, reacted to the news of Whyte putting pen to paper in a series of Instagram videos on Tuesday morning.
The Wythenshawe warrior said: “Dillian Whyte signed his contract for $8million [£6m], what a surprise, an absolute idiot.
“Should this even be a talking point?
“The man signed for the biggest pay day he’s ever going to get in his life.
“Oh my God, my head hurts from all the mind games that Dillian Whyte’s been playing on me.
“Oh my God, I’m so sore, I don’t know whether I’m coming or going. My training camp’s a mess.”
Whyte waited until the eleventh hour to return his contract to the WBC as he was irate with the purse spilt in Fury’s favour.
Gypsy King Fury is set to take home 80 per cent of the £30.6million purse – meaning the defending champ will pocket £24m.
Whyte, meanwhile, will take home £6m for his first undisputed world title fight.
According to SunSport, a press conference for the fight is set to take place on Wednesday.
Former unified heavyweight king Fury is brimming with confidence ahead of his long-awaited showdown with Whyte, who he’s vowed to ‘bust’ like a balloon.
He said: “I’m going to absolutely BUST Dillian Whyte in like a cheap f***ing water balloon.
“You’re useless you big dosser, you useless sausage.”
The Brit duo have shared the ring before in sparring sessions and Whyte claimed he floored his rival on “multiple occasions”.
Whye joined the Gypsy King’s camp first in Manchester ten years ago ahead of the latter’s five-round win over Martin Rogan in 2012.
He joined Fury again a year later on the Belgian-Dutch border for Fury’s doomed scrap with David Haye.
Last year Whyte said: “Well, me and Tyson Fury sparred and I bashed him about and dropped him on multiple occasions. Simple as that.”
