DILLIAN WHYTE was joined by Tyson Fury's dad John for a TV interview ahead of Saturday night's heavyweight clash at Wembley.

But The Body Snatcher hilariously mistook Tyson's father for legendary boxing commentator Steve Bunce.


Speaking to Frank Warren's Queensbury Promotions, Whyte was joined by John in the background.

And as the presenter introduced the Gypsy King's dad, Whyte spun round and exclaimed: "Oh I thought it was Steve Bunce!"

As the presenter chuckled at Whyte's gag, John himself found the comment far from funny.

The 57-year-old stood stony-faced as Whyte joked that he thought he had been joined by pundit Bunce.

Others noticed John's less than impressed reaction to the comment.

One pointed out: "Big John not impressed hahaha."

John has been heavily involved in the build up to tonight's clash at Wembley.

First he was part of a heated exchange with Whyte's entourage in midweek, which saw him having to be held back by son Tyson.

That led to him accepting the offer of a fight with Whyte's father, and he has now threatened David Haye to stay away from the arena with a chilling message.

He told IFL TV on Haye: "He's not allowed to be there.

"If he is, they'll regret it. I'm gonna tell you now David, you've shot your mouth off once too far mate.

"If you're there, have your tin hat on pal, because you're gonna need it."
