Tyson Fury And Dillian Whyte Finally Have First Face-Off At Press Conference

It finally happened.

Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte went face-to-face for the first time at Wednesday’s press conference ahead of Fury’s heavyweight title defense on Saturday at Wembley Stadium.

Despite not being on each other’s good sides, Fury and Whyte were nothing but pleasant with each other, both promising a great fight.

A ruckus, however, was brewing between Fury’s father, John, and Whyte’s entourage, who were exchanging words as they moved towards one another, but it was Fury and Whyte who took control of the situation.

“I’ve just prevented a big ruckus on stage,” Fury told BT Sport after the press conference.

“People want a big ruckus at press conferences, all the screaming and shouting and punching. Listen, let the two boxers do a fight and enjoy it. It’s not for entourages to get involved or anything like that.”

Unlike many press conferences, Fury chose to show his respect of Whyte rather than provoke him. He assured fans that he’s trained as hard for Whyte as he had for Deontay Wilder and Wladimir Klitschko.

Whyte, meanwhile, said his key to winning Saturday is by being able to adapt and make decisions quickly.

Fury continues to insist that this will be his last fight, though no one believes him.

““Me and him probably didn’t think we’d be doing 90-odd-thousand people at Wembley,” Fury said.

“We’re looking forward to an awesome, memorable night. This will break all records. For an old boxing match with two old boys people wrote off all their careers, we ain’t done bad, have we?”
