Tyson Fury on Dillian Whyte: I'll train for him like he's Muhammad Ali and Bruce Lee

The contract for the match between the world WBC heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury, and the interim champion and thus the first challenger, Dillian Whyte, has finally been confirmed. On April 23 at the Wembley Stadium, the aforementioned duo will clash in front of 80,000 fans and in front of millions in front of the screen.

Although this is not the match that Fury wanted or hoped for, as a champion he has an obligation to do the same. Fortunately, there are 29.5 million very good reasons provided to him by the strongest bid at the fee auction by his promoter Frank Warren.

The match also has a big stake. A possible defeat by Whyte would make it impossible for Tyson to fight for the absolute world champion against Oleksandr Usyk or Anthony Joshua. Because of all this, he will enter the whole process very seriously.

This is best revealed by his post on Twitter, in which he said goodbye to his followers for two months. "I'm completely out of social media for eight and a half weeks. I'm going to training camp to give Dillian Whyte all the respect in the world."

"I'm going to train like he's Muhammad Ali or Bruce Lee. I've never underestimated anyone in my life and he'll get from me all the respect he deserves as a top-ranked WBC fighter." "Don't call me, send me messages or emails, contact me in any way.

I'm out of everything until May. Appreciate my privacy and see you at the press conference, "Fury said.


Although in recent weeks Whyte has called him various derogatory expressions, it is clear that respect has existed from the beginning and that in no way did Fury intend to underestimate him.

After all, he wouldn't be where he is if he didn't pose like that before every match and against every opponent. Especially since he himself is aware of his role, which is stated and explained above. We’re going to miss Fury’s regular and mostly entertaining announcements, but he believes that’s what it takes to see him in the ring at its best and we believe it will pay off.

As for Whyte, he has been “privatized” ever since the fee auction took place. His fee for the match should be $ 7.4 million, which is arguably the most he has earned in his career so far. This is going to be a very interesting match, and it seems, at least for now, different from everyone else
