'Ready' Dillian Whyte BREAKS silence ahead of Tyson Fury fight with first post since February 26

DILLIAN WHYTE has finally broken his silence ahead of his heavyweight fight with Tyson Fury.

But, he took to Twitter and Instagram on Wednesday to inform everyone that he is prepared for the bout.

Whyte said: "I’m ready. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone on the 23rd of April @wembleystadium. #LetsGooo!!!!"

He also showed off a video montage of his intense training regime.

Fury believes that his opponent's radio silence was all down to a comment that he made on Instagram, suggesting that Whyte would lose money if he didn't keep his mouth shut.

The Gypsy King told Queensbury Promotions: "I did tell him on Instagram a few months ago, every time you call me a bad name your percentage will go down.

"He didn't call me many bad names after that. That's why he went quiet. He did go quiet when I did tell him that."

Meanwhile, Tony Bellew thinks that Whyte's preparations are "genius".
