    Rumours are surfacing that he might be pulling out of the Tyson Fury fight, as he is unhappy about the money for the fight. Do you believe that is the case? Will the Fury v Whyte fight happen?

    Dillian Whyte wants all the smoke, he also wants mirrors to combine it with.

    It will be an absolute travesty if this fight doesn’t go ahead. Its the biggest domestic heavyweight clash for a long time. I do find it a little odd we haven’t heard from Whyte yet. He has served his time waiting for a shot and now has the chance to become the Champion. I also think he is going to give Fury a real hard night.

    There's an interview with Dean Whyte today and as much as normally I'd be happily skipping past it, I thought I'd have a listen at what he said.

    Apart from the usual 'legal issues' talk he slates Frank Warren's shows compared to Matchroom, says he is surprised at the outcome of the purse bids and repeatedly says that we will have to see what plays out.

    Regardless of what people think of him and his fake brother routine, it's all very quiet from that whole side.

    I know the split is not favourable to Whyte, but it’s still a lot of money. You have to start somewhere and the riches that will be on offer if he wins will be worth the short end in the long run. As a fan, I just want to see the fight and imo both fighters are being paid more than enough. Hope it doesn’t get spoiled by greed. I don’t think it will though, I just can’t see Whyte giving up his slot over money. I would like to think he has more about him than that.

    The fight is possibly scheduled earlier than he expected and he is worried about his training and nutrition cycles.

    I think there are two possible reasons why he might be quiet; 1 is that he’s still taking legal action, 2 is that he feels no motivation to promote the fight so he’s just focusing on training, he can let Fury run around shouting dosser in front of the cameras.

    Why would he pull out? He has a much better résumé than Fury and a bigger punch. He deserves 45% at least, though. He’s the much bigger draw.

    It not just about the money its the kool aim they have been drinking from Eddie..

    Eddie is very good at what he does and part of the collaratal damage of this is he creats these rock star guys to sell them to the public.

    So Eddie pumps up their tyers both publicaly and privatly creating personas to promote his business.. He is very sucessful but those like Whyte he uses to acheive his goal believe the kool aid so they actually think they are bigger than Jesus..

    So now Whyte is throwing away a career high payday because he thinks he is better than what he is..

    Soooo I assume Helenius or Charr could be called in now it looks more and more likely that Whyte would rather walk away from this amazing opportunity that Frank Warren has presented him?
