Tyson Fury vows to crush Dillian Whyte with one hand
MDP Live - World champion Tyson Fury vows to crush Dillian Whyte with one hand behind his back in his mandatory WBC heavyweight bout. Tyson Fury boasted while undergoing his training camp in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
The 33-year-old bowed to a record-breaking salary offer won by Fury promoter Frank Warren after a £30.6m bid. Whyte had been almost silent on the radio since the announcement of the fight, whereas the Gypsy King was full of bullshit.
And while training in Dubai, Fury took the opportunity to attack his former training partner while discussing tactics before their fight. He told DubaiEyeSport:
"Whatever I feel at night. Because I don't pay much attention to these homeless people, to be fair," he said. "Whatever I felt that night. Either way, I can definitely beat Whyte. Even if I put one hand behind my back and one foot off the floor, I will still beat him."
It is believed the pair have now accepted the contract to counter the imminent date and venue confirmation. Cardiff's Principality Stadium was an early pioneer to host the all-British showdown.
Fury also mocked Anthony Joshua when asked if they would end up fighting. "I'm not sure what to think about Anthony Joshua anymore. Frankly, no one cares about him anymore. But maybe I'll drop him just for the fun of it."
Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte World Boxing Schedule Officially Holds, WBC Heavyweight Champion Belt Battle
MDP Live - The World Boxing Schedule between Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte officially takes place in March 2022.
WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has named Dillian Whyte the next opponent he wants to face in the world boxing arena.
The World Boxing Schedule decision between Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte has been uploaded on Tyson's personal social media.
The announcement prevented Tyson Fury from advancing against the WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO heavyweight boxing belt owner, Oleksandr Usyk.
Fury was previously linked against Oleksandr Usyk in the event for the undisputed champion title.
However, Fury's plans fell apart because Usyk had to play a rematch against Anthony Joshua.
The reason is Joshua is determined to take back his four titles from Usyk after losing the first match.
He also has the goal of beating Usyk to get back on track for the undisputed champion title fight against Fury.
This has resulted in Fury looking for another challenger which is none other than Dillian Whyte.
"I can't wait to punch Dillian Whyte in the face," Fury said.
"I'll give him the best hiding place he's never had before."
"Train hard, loser, because I will destroy you," continued Fury.
Dillian Whyte's promoter, Eddie Hearn, was then enthusiastic about the match Fury wanted to face.
He was sure Fury would swallow his own words by tasting Dillian Whyte's first defeat.
"What Tyson Fury wants to do is ease in March," Hearn told iFL TV.
"Now he has to fight Dillian Whyte, and after this commotion he will taste defeat."
"He will lose and be knocked out by Dillian Whyte," said Hearn optimistically.
Despite giving each other a hint, the Fury vs Whyte match has not been officially announced.
However, the match between the two heavyweight boxers is planned to clash in March.
Tyson Fury Takes WBC Belt Off Dillian Whyte vs Deontay Wilder
MDP Live - Tyson Fury stripped of his WBC heavyweight belt paving the way for Dillian Whyte to take on Deontay Wilder for the title. The discourse of Tyson Fury resigning was taken to fight Anthony Joshua or Oleksandr Usyk in a unification duel.
Dillian Whyte waited several years to win the world title and is now finally set as the mandatory challenger. He is now looking to strike a deal with Fury in early 2022, although the contract value has yet to be agreed.
Promoter Bob Arum has revealed Fury could choose to vacate his WBC title and keep his Ring magazine belt if a deal cannot be reached. “If we can't reach an agreement with Dillian Whyte, we will fight for the Ring Magazine belt and the 'lineal' title and we will choose another opponent. We have to get Tyson back in the ring by the end of March…," Bob Arum told talkSPORT.
"Frank [Warren] and I are determined to come up to him with an acceptable opponent and we want to have that fight in Cardiff. Andy Ruiz Jr is a possibility. I see Joseph Parker having a good win over Derek Chisora – it could be a possibility."
Should Fury vacate his belt then Wilder will be at the forefront to fight mandatory challenger Whyte for the belt as he is ranked No1 by the WBC. Wilder lost the title after being stopped in the seventh round by Fury in February 2020.
He then faced him again in October, this time losing by knockout in the 11th round despite dropping Fury twice. Meanwhile, Fury is likely to take on someone of the caliber of Parker or Ruiz Jr pending a clash with Usyk or Joshua.
Usyk currently holds the IBF, WBA and WBO titles, securing the belt after beating Joshua by a unanimous decision at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in September. AJ has contractual rights for a rematch with Usyk - an option that looked increasingly likely after Whyte was ordered to fight for the WBC belt.
This is because Fury and Usyk hope to make the clash irresistible by paying AJ to step aside. However, with Whyte now also entering the duel equation, it is highly unlikely that Fury and Usyk will choose to pay Whyte and Joshua the money.
