Tyson Fury hit Dillian Whyte with some smack-talk as he urged him to sign their fight contract ahead of the looming deadline at the end of the day today, February 21.
Fury took to Twitter to address Whyte after news of their bout emerged, though Whyte has still not signed the contract due to an apparent row that has been ongoing since promoter Frank Warren won purse bids with a £31 million offer.
The champion is set to receive 80% of the purse, though Whyte is said to be holding off in a bid to chase further financial reward.

In the clip, posted on Twitter today, February 21, Fury reminded Whyte of the looming deadline to sign the contract and added: 'So get it signed you sh*thouse or move on. Jog on you muppet! Come on son, get out the way.'
Fury tagged Whyte in the post, but the boxer has kept quiet about the potential bout since the purse bids were declared.
His silence comes in contrast to Fury's numerous comments about the fight, including a previous message in which he claimed he couldn't 'wait to punch Dillian Whyte’s face right in'.
Per talkSport, Fury said: 'I’m going to give him the best hiding he’s ever had in his life. Train hard sucker because you’re getting annihilated.'
Even Fury's father has joined the conversation as he too shared a message to Whyte on Twitter, arguing the boxer 'said [he] wanted a title shot' and he had been 'banging on for three years' that he hadn't got one, Mirror reports.
He continued: 'Now you don't seem to want it pal. I don't know what mind games you are trying to play but they don't work with us. You are running out of time and you are making yourself look very stupid. Get the contract signed, get your beating along with your job. At least your consolation prize is $8 million, if you decline that you want putting in an asylum. Be a man and sign the contract and show us you are a man pal. God bless and we will see you at the press conference if you are a man.'
Speaking to talkSport, Warren expressed belief that Whyte doesn't have 'anywhere to go' with the purse split, while promoter Eddie Hearn argued the purses are 'almost secondary to the fight being ordered', saying: 'The interim champion can receive up to 45% of a purse split. And I believe that the purse should be at those kinds of levels. We have seen Top Rank talking about 20% to Whyte which is outrageous.'
Whyte has not fought since he beat Alexander Povetkin in their rematch last March.
