This Is What Dmitry Salita Predicts Will Happen At Tyson Fury Vs. Dillian Whyte
Promoter Dmitry Salita already knows what will happen on April 23 between Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte.
Salita said he is confident that Fury, the WBC heavyweight world champion, will easily get by Whyte, the interim champion and mandatory challenger, when they meet at the Wembley Stadium in front of nearly 94,000 fans.
“I’m sorry to say this but I give Dillian Whyte no chance,” Salita said.
“The fight will go as long as Tyson Fury wants it to go. Tyson has fought at a higher level, he’s at the peak of his career – I don’t think Dillian Whyte is at his peak, I think he’s over the hill.”
“Even if he was at his peak he could not mess with Tyson. Dillian is a solid, world-class heavyweight, it’s an exciting fight for British boxing, but Tyson Fury is one of the greatest heavyweights of all time.”
Salita promotes several heavyweight contenders including Otto Wallin, who lost to Fury by unanimous decision, but shocked fans when Fury needed 47 stitches to fix a cut above his right eye.
Wallin was supposed to face Whyte in October, but pulled out of the bout due to a shoulder injury. Wallin previously told FIGHT SPORTS that he felt like Whyte was just trying to get him out of the picture.
Eventually, Fury was ordered to face Whyte.
Salita said he respects Whyte’s trainer, Harold Knight, but thinks Whyte’s best days are past him.
“Harold has added and will add to Dillian Whyte’s preparations, but Sugar and Tyson come together like a puzzle, a perfect circle,” Salita added.
