There is no doubt that Tyson Fury will enter the squared circle on 23rd April as the heavy favourite against Dillian Whyte, but as even Achilles had his heel, the undefeated WBC heavyweight champion demarcates the only way Whyte can shock the world and win the fight- through a big left hook.
Tyson Fury (31-0-1, 22 KOs) vs Dillian Whyte (28-2, 19 KOs) will take place this 23rd April at the Wembley Stadium in London, with Fury’s WBC heavyweight title up against Whyte’s interim belt in a title unification fight.
Tyson Fury says Dillian Whyte is “as dangerous” as Joshua and Usyk
Even though “The Gypsy King” has no lack of confidence in his own skill set, which let him demolish Deontay Wilder not once but twice in the past, he does believe that Whyte’s strong point is a left hook, which Fury says can put a bull to sleep.
“The only thing I can be is the best that I’ll be on Saturday night and God willing, I’ll be the best on the night,” Fury told talkSPORT, “Win, lose or draw, you’re going to see a hell of a fight. For me, the jeopardy is not feeling good on the night because it can happen.”
“The other jeopardy is walking onto a big left hook from Dillian Whyte that he possesses that would probably knock over a bull. He has a real left hook on him that would knock out anybody,” Fury praised his fellow Briton’s punching abilities, “I think he’s a very dangerous fighter. He’s just as dangerous as the Joshuas of the world and definitely Usyk and everyone else. He’s not to be underestimated and taken lightly, that’s for sure.”
While Fury is well aware of the threat that can come from Whyte, 33-year-old is confident on his 6’9″ frame, and the movement capabilities of a middleweight fighter, while possessing the same heavyweight punching power that Whyte has and estimates there’s a 10 to 1 chance that Whyte can pull off a shocker.
“Let’s be real; he doesn’t have the Tyson Fury boxing skills. He doesn’t have the 6’9” frame or the ability to move like a middleweight. The one thing he does have is the heavyweight KO power, which I have also. So if I’m daft enough to get caught by a big left hook, then good riddance, he knocked me out, fair play. It’s a 10-to-1 shot that he’s going to knock me out with that left hook. That’s probably the odds,” Fury concluded. [H/T Boxingnews24.com]
