Whyte has shown some vulnerabilities during his carer, but he has been in the ring with solid competition. His resume has looked better than ever with wins over Alexander Povetkin, Joseph Parker, and Derek Chisora all since 2018.
His second professional loss since losing to Anthony Joshua in 2015, was against Povetkin in their first bout. Whyte was caught clean on the chin by a left uppercut from Povetkin, something that Fury might try to land at distance.
Fury’s biggest wins to date come against Wladimir Klitschko and the Wilder trilogy. We saw the “Gypsy King’s” versatility in the three fights against Wilder, fighting on the outside or going to toe to toe against a heavy hitter, Fury can use either of these styles to cause Whyte problems in the ring.
Fury has already cemented as the best heavyweight of this era. By fighting Whyte, it secures this spot against another active heavyweight that’s from Britain. Fury has been fighting across Europe and the U.S. since his last fight in the U.K. which was in 2016 against Derek Chisora.
A homecoming fight was always on the cards at this stage of Fury’s career, now that AJ is still tied up in a potential Usyk rematch, it’s left the gate wide open for Whyte to shoot his shot.
Outside of Fury vs Joshua, Dillian Whyte possesses the biggest name to challenge Fury that’s also from the UK. Whyte also has the experience of fighting much taller opponents, in Robert Helenius and Mariusz Wach, both fights he won by decision. We know Fury got off the canvas multiple times against Wilder, but their last fight was an absolute war and it’s not telling if that has any lasting impact on Fury.
Against Whyte I see Fury going back to his fundamentals and outboxing Whyte with his 7-inch reach while throwing in some of his newer aggressive techniques that he picked up off SugarHill Steward.
Tyson isn’t known for his knockout power, but with a knockout rate of 68.75%, he certainly has the ability to stop Whyte with a barrage of punches. Before the sixth round is Fury’s official prediction, I can see it happening closer to the 8th round with Fury winning by TKO.
Fury Set to Retire After Whyte Fight
Tyson Fury has stated that he intends to retire after his heavyweight title bout against Dillian Whyte. Specifically on “a massive yacht abroad” said Fury via SkySports.
But on Tuesday, Fury said: “This is the final fight of my career, I’m retiring after this, $150m in the bank, healthy, young, I’m gonna buy a massive yacht abroad. I’m retiring, I’m out, this is my final fight, I’m done.”
We all know by now to take what Fury says with a grain of salt. However, with Fury not deciding to fight Usyk and AJ coming off a loss. It wouldn’t be a huge surprise if Fury did indeed hang up the gloves.
Fury went on further to acknowledge the danger Whyte poses in the ring, but anticipates taking advantage of that opportunity to showcase his talents.
“I fought some tasty competitors over the years. I know Dillian Whyte, we go back a long way. We go back to like 2012. He’s a tough guy, he’s a good, game fighter. He will bring what he can and he will try and chin me, that’s a fact.
“He’s definitely up there with the top 10 fights I’ve had, but we’ll all find out on the night. I could say he could be No 2 or 22, but if he doesn’t perform on the night then he’ll never get the credit for it, or if I demolish him one round he’ll never get any credit, but if it’s a good fight then he’ll definitely get his credit.”
Big John See’s Whyte as No Threat
Tyson’s father John has always had his son’s back. That’s no different heading into his next bout. With Dillian not showing up to the press conference, Tyson made sure to entertain the press and let the early mind games begin in what should be a colossal showdown at Wembley on April 23.
