Dillian Whyte only has one focus and that is fight the best around whoever that may be.

Dillian Whyte feels Tyson Fury not the same fighter without uncle in his corner

There is nothing like a 'boxing beef' to get the fans excited and it seems like there is another conflict on the cards, this time between Dillian Whyte and Tyson Fury.

After Fury's win over Francesco Pianeta in Belfast a couple of weeks ago, Whyte aired a number of his thoughts on Twitter, calling his performance nonsense and that he would knock his fellow heavyweight out within five rounds.

Naturally, Fury was not going to take that criticism lying down and came back with a scorching personal put down covering everything from knocking Whyte's career to date and that he is just a work man for promoter Eddie Hearn.

Whyte was not willing to let Fury have the last word and said that Fury will never be the fighter he was when he was working with his uncle Peter.

The partnership between the pair was very successful, with Tyson winning the heavyweight title from Wladimir Klitschko during their time together.

This clip shows Whyte talking about that split, and he said: "I've got respect for him, but since he is not with Peter anymore he has gone off the rails and that is going to be his biggest downfall.

"I don't think he will ever reach that level again, Peter gave him more than just fitness, he gave him confidence."

In contrast to his social media posts, Whyte said that he just wants to fight the best around and he is not interested in talking and 'all that other rubbish.'

Fury has a big task on his hands in his next fight against Deontay Wilder at the end of the year, while there is talk that Whyte could fight Anthony Joshua again, who handed him his only defeat in his career courtesy of a seventh-round knockout in 2015.

And what odds we see a Fury vs Whyte bout in the future?

One thing is certain, there will be no love lost if the two men were ever to meet and it will be an unmissable contest.
