“The Gypsy King” is comfortable as a solo artist. He turned southpaw and went through the fight week paces with his head trainer, SugarHill Steward. After Dillian Whyte did not show up to Tuesday’s open workout in London, Fury thrilled the home fans on his own.

“Frank Warren and the boys have done a fantastic job. It’s been a great promotion. Looking forward to a fantastic event.”

“I’ve been boxing quite a bit as a southpaw in camp. We’ll see. Whatever works. If that don’t work, we’ll switch off to orthodox. If that don’t work, we’ll switch back up. I might just go square on!”

On Whyte not showing up to the workout
“That’s Dillian’s concern. That’s none of my business. Dillian Whyte, I’m sure he’s got his reasons why he’s not here today. Whatever they are, good luck to him, and I’ll see him on the fight night.”
