Whyte is running out of time to sign the contract, with the WBC insisting the challenger must confirm he’s taking the fight today.

The Gypsy King has sent a message to Whyte urging him to sign the contract or ‘move on’
As the contract deadline day has arrived, Fury has taken to social media to tell Whyte to sign the contract or move aside.
He said: ‘Today’s the final day for signing the contract, you big dosser.
‘So get it signed, s***house, or move on. Jog on you muppet, get out the way, stiff a***.’
The Gypsy King’s promoter Frank Warren won the rights to promote the bout with a £30million deal, which was confirmed as the biggest purse bid in boxing history.
Whyte has remained silent on the situation ever since, with Fury’s US co-promoter Bob Arum claiming that the Brixton ‘Body Snatcher’ has been asking for more money in order to speak out and promote their fight.
Fury took to social media over the weekend claiming that Whyte wanted more money to turn up for the press conference.
He said: ‘I just heard that little sausage Dillian Whyte wants paying to turn up for a press conference. You little silly fat sausage, you’re getting that [a fist], you coward.’
He later added: ‘Hi guys, just a quick one. I’m setting up a Just Giving page for Dillian Whyte so he can show up to the press conference and I’m going to donate first. My donation is 47p, you useless dosser.’

Whyte’s promoter Eddie Hearn has insisted that his man will sign and the fight will finally get over the line.
Should Whyte sign the contract then the bout would likely take place at Wembley Stadium on April 23.
If he doesn’t sign then he could miss out on a shot at Fury and the world heavyweight championship match he had long been waiting for.
Fury is set to receive around £24m following the purse bid due to the 80/20 split in the WBC champion’s favour.
Mandatory challenger Whyte would secure £6m in his first ever world title bout, which would be his biggest payday.
Talks had previously been in place for Whyte and Anthony Joshua to step aside from fights with Fury and Oleksandr Usyk respectively.
This would have paved the way for Fury to fight Usyk for the undisputed heavyweight championship, though parties could not come to terms on a deal for this to happen.
