With Dillian Whyte remaining in Portugal for the March fight announcement and a subsequent ‘late flight’ excluding him from yesterday’s open workouts, one might have feared he would miss today’s press conference. Fury, meanwhile, appears unaffected by his opponent’s absence and was in good spirits during yesterday’s public training session at Wembley Box Park.
It looks like Whyte is planning to make an appearance at the press conference at Wembley Stadium this afternoon for a reunion that could get heated. The two men have yet to face off in the build-up to the fight and with both renowned for their press conference antics, this is one you won’t want to miss.
Fury has been at home in Morecambe with Sugarhill Steward, but the two now appear to be in London for what could be one of Britain’s biggest fights of the 21st century. The two will fight for Fury’s WBC and The Ring heavyweight belts after Whyte became a mandatory challenger with a victory last year over Alexander Povetkin.
