Dillian Whyte Doesn’t Feel Intimidated By Tyson Fury
“Either one of us is getting knocked out on Saturday.”
This is what Dillian Whyte (28-2) had to say about his incoming fight against Tyson Fury (32-0-1) on Saturday. Whyte hasn’t been hyping up this fight ever since it became official.
However, in an interview with Sky Sports recently, the 34-year-old believes that he is ready to take on the defending champion on Saturday. The match will take place in London’s Wembley Stadium.
“I am feeling eager and optimistic about my chances against Fury. Even though he walks in as defending champion, I don’t actually feel intimidated by it. Let’s see what tomorrow brings,” Whyte stated.
As Fury, Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua have dominated the spotlight in the last few years, the rise of Whyte to the top of the heavyweight heap has been a long time coming.
“It has been a combination of anxiousness and frustration, to be honest. Mixed emotions are probably the right words to describe my feelings. However, I am not obsessed with it. I am focused on turning up and doing my job,” Whyte added.
“Many people are gassing up Tyson Fury as if he is the last wonder in the world in the world of fighting but he’s not. He is a very good boxer, but so is his opponent for Saturday.”
