Fury vs Whyte: What has been said?
Fury has been told he ‘will have to get off the floor’ and could be knocked out by Whyte in their heavyweight dust-up.
“Tyson Fury‘s the best heavyweight in the world right now, that cannot be disputed,” Tony Bellew said on The Sports Bar.
“But Dillian Whyte is a hard night for anybody. Anybody who thinks Dillian Whyte is going to be an easy fight is a fool… he’s big, he’s dangerous, he’s brave and he can punch. All those attributes will cause problems for anyone.
“And Tyson knows it too, he’s no fool, but with Tyson’s boxing ability, if he navigates his way through the first six, I expect him to come on strong in the second half of the fight.
“But, believe you me, I actually think he’s going to have to get off the floor.
“Dillian Whyte is game as anything and he will jump all over Tyson Fury. He won’t care about the showboating, the dancing around, the drop of the hand.
“He also won’t get in Dillian’s head… Tyson can’t break Dillian’s mindset. Dillian is a tough, rough, hard kid.
“I think it’s a really, really good fight. I’m not saying Dillian’s going to knock Tyson Fury out because that would be a stupid statement, but I will say this much, it wouldn’t surprise me if he did.
“It’s a really hard night’s work for Tyson Fury. He might not want to admit this but he knows it.”
