Heavyweight title challenger Dillian Whyte has claimed that Tyson Fury receives favouritism and that those in positions of power in the sport, let the champion do as he pleases.
Speaking to media platform JOE, he said:
“I was pissed off and annoyed, it wasn’t my best night at the office.
A lot of things were done wrong that shouldn’t have went down. But it’s boxing, nobody cares, people only care about your wins, nobody cares about your losses.”
Whyte previously made it clear he thought he was pushed by Fury after being caught with an uppercut and that impeded his ability to recover.
The 34-year-old believes that Fury gets away with doing and saying what he wants and receives ‘favouritism’ in the sport.
“Some guys get favouritism in boxing unfortunately.”
“Tyson Fury, let’s be honest, says what he wants, do what he wants, get whatever he wants. He says all these crazy wild things and nobody does anything about it. [They] let him do what he wants.”
Whyte is moving on from the Fury defeat and is trying to rebuild for a second shot at a world title. He returns to the ring for the first time since losing in April, taking on American Jermaine Franklin on November 26th live on DAZN.
