TYSON FURY has claimed 'coward' Dillian Whyte wants to be paid to turn up to a press conference ahead of their potential heavyweight title fight.
The battle of the Brits is yet to be rubber stamped and remains in danger being CALLED OFF.
Whyte has been awarded just 20 per cent of the purse and the deadline for the contract to be signed is Saturday, February 19.
And according to heavyweight champ Fury, Whyte is asking to be paid to turn up to a press conference to promote their potential fight.
He said on Instagram: "I've just heard that little sausage Dillian Whyte wants paying to turn up to a press conference.
"You little, silly, fat sausage. You're getting that (fist). Coward."
Should the fight be signed off on, Fury says it WILL be in the UK and April 23 is the likely spot on the calendar.
The most likely venue for Fury vs Whyte is reportedly Cardiff or Manchester, but no details are set in stone.
