If Tyson Fury Trades, Deontay Wilder Chins Him Early – Whyte
Top heavyweight Contender and WBC No.1 Dillian Whyte has made little of Tyson Fury’s threats of scoring a knockout when he faces WBC champ Deontay Wilder in their rematch on Saturday Night at the MGM Grand Arena.
Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury both fought to a controversial split draw in their first fight with the Brit outpointing the Champ throughout the fight while almost losing after being dropped twice in the ninth round and twelfth round respectively.
Many boxing experts have concluded the fight will boil down to just two outcomes – Wilder winning via knockout or Fury out-pointing him to a unanimous decision but Fury has maintained the position that he will be the one scoring the knockout on Saturday.
Deontay Wilder has knocked out every opponent he has faced in the boxing ring except Fury, who miraculously stood up in the twelfth round of the first fight, after being viciously dropped.
“One thing I’ll say, Tyson Fury is talking absolute nonsense about he’s going to come out and knock out Deontay Wilder in the first two rounds, that he’s going to stand and trade. If he does that, he gets chinned early,” Whyte told Sky Sports.
“Deontay Wilder, I’ve been chasing him forever. But anyone that wants it can get it. I’m already a world champion, the real WBC world champion.”
Dillian Whyte has been the WBC mandatory since 2018 and also has the WBC Interim title. He is slated to face former world champion Alexander Povetkin
in a yet to be announced date in April or May.
The winner of the rematch between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury will have a contractual right to force a Trilogy but also have to face Whyte in 2021
