Heavyweight title challenger Dillian Whyte seemingly came out of hiding for the teensiest part in the new Tyson Fury trailer ahead of April 23.
Whyte goes for WBC heavyweight gold against Fury at a sold out Wembley Stadium but has been far from a happy bunny all the way through.
From the purse bid split to the staging of the press conference, Whyte has wanted little to do with any promotion for the event.
As the trailer dropped this week, “The BodySnatcher” hardly featured as just seconds of recorded content aired.
Alongside the video, Top Rank also released information on coverage of the show from ESPN Pay Per View.
ESPN also set the PPV price at an eye-watering $69.99.
