Fury vs Whyte: What has been said?
It will be Whyte’s first world title shot and he is adamant he will be the man to end Fury’s reign.
“I’m willing to do whatever it takes,” he said. “I’m that kind of fighter where whatever I’ve got to do I will do: it’s victory by any means necessary.”
“It means everything to fight in my home country for the world title. It’s massive.
“I’m not scared to take risks, I’ve taken risks my whole life so it’s nothing new. I’m ready to rock and roll.”
Fury, meanwhile, insists he will be in the best shape of his career.
Fury is now WBC heavyweight champion and defends his belt against Whyte
“I think everybody is underestimating how good this fight is going to be,” he said. “I see the odds and laugh at them because they’re obviously coming from people who don’t know boxing.
“This is a heavyweight boxing fight, anybody can win with one punch. If I’m not on my A-game then that man’s going to knock my head right off my shoulders.
“I’m going to have to be on form to beat him and he will have to perform at his best to beat me. He’s definitely a man that needs a lot of respect and that’s what I’ve given him.
“I’ve done everything I can possibly do to train for this. I’ve trained as hard for Dillian as I have for (Deontay) Wilder or (Wladimir) Klitschko. He’ll be fighting the best Tyson Fury.”
Promoter Frank Warren added: “I’m confident this fight will be a record busting event with life changing money at stake and even more pride.
“It’s shaping up to be another classic and talkSPORT’s in-depth coverage will capture all the insight and excitement for boxing fans.”
