‘You are a b****, only talk s*** all the time’: Dillian Whyte engages in ANOTHER feud with Tyson Fury by criticising Gypsy King’s ‘cowardly’ response to Billy Joe Saunders’ dad being shoved to the ground after Canelo Alvarez fight
Dillian Whyte and Tyson Fury have entered into another Twitter feud after the former criticised the latter’s reaction when Billy Joe Saunders’ dad was forcefully pushed to the floor following his son’s defeat to Canelo Alvarez in Dallas on Sunday.
Tom Saunders – sat ringside – attempted to get to his son in the ring after an uppercut in round eight of his fight against the Mexican left him with multiple fractures of the orbital bone and unable to rise from his stool ahead of the ninth.
However, as he climbed the barrier, he was shoved to the ground by a member of security, sparking a minor brawl captured on camera involving other members of Saunders’ team.

WBC heavyweight champion Fury – in attendance in the section where the brawl took place – watched on and while he elected not to get involved in the melee, he did appear to be trying to defuse the situation from behind the railing.
But it was not deemed sufficient by Whyte, who posted the video to his Instagram story with the caption: ‘I don’t care what no-one says, Tyson Fury is a coward p***y.
‘How can you see Billy Joe Saunders’ dad get man handled like this and you didn’t do [anything].
‘You are a b****, only talk s*** all the time – ‘fighting man’.’
Fury however was never going to lie down and duly responded on Twitter: ‘Dillian Whyte – ‘The Can Man’.
‘More like ‘The Can Get Knocked Out By A 41 Year Old Man’. #BUM’
Whyte then responded: ‘Calm down Gypsy Coward you’re no king Tyson Fury.
‘If you thought I was a bum ‘Luke’ you would have fought me years ago when ordered by the WBC keep conning the public. #Anytime #Anywhere’
Their latest spat comes just a week after the duo put aside their rivalry to rally behind Saunders ahead of his fight.

The 33-year-old told iFL TV: ‘I’m gonna support my countryman.
‘That’s like Billy Joe Saunders fighting Canelo. I don’t care what they have to say or what they think.
‘I’m back Billy Joe Saunders to beat Canelo one million per cent to beat Canelo because he’s my countryman.Do you understand? That’s who I am.’
And after seeing Whyte backing Saunders, Fury was quick to praise his rival, writing on his Instagram story: ‘Go on Dillion man.’
