DILLIAN WHYTE can cause a huge shock and BEAT Tyson Fury, according to fellow Brit heavyweight Derek Chisora.

Whyte has finally signed the contract to challenge the Gypsy King for his WBC world title.

Fury is unsurprisingly the bookies’ favourite to make a successful defence of the iconic green and gold belt.

But Chisora, who has fought both men twice, losing each time, thinks Whyte can spring a giant upset on April 23 AT Wembley.

Speaking to Behind the Gloves, the 38-year-old, who lost his rematch against Joseph Parker last time out, said: “He [Dillian Whyte] wants it, he’s hungry.

“The problem is yeah, when fighters make 20, 30, or 40 million, they’re not hungry anymore.

“There’s only one fighter who has ever been hungry when he’s made £100m and that’s Floyd Mayweather.

“When the rest of the fighters make all this money, they’re not hungry anymore, they just do it for the sake of doing it.

“But when someone who is hungry [and] wants it more, like Dillian right now, he’s going to come in and die in that ring that day.”

Chisora first fought Fury in 2011, losing comprehensively on points.

Their rematch went even worse for ‘War’ as he was pulled out by his corner after ten one-sided rounds.

Many thought Chisora deserved the win when he first fought Whyte in 2016, going down on a split decision.

But there was no need for judges in their second clash two years later when Chisora was sparked out by The Bodysnatcher in the tenth round.

Meanwhile Fury has labelled Whyte an idiot for delaying the signing of their £30million showdown and haggling over more funds.

The 34-year-old Body Snatcher is due for almost £6million, rising to £9m, if he wins the WBC heavyweight title in their April 23 battle.

But, as a bonafide pay-per-view attraction and the long-time mandatory challenger, he has been pushing for a larger slice of the record-breaking purse.

Fury took to Instagram to growl: “Oh my God, Dillian Whyte signed his contract for $8million [£6m], what a surprise, an absolute idiot.

“Should this even be a talking point?

“The man signed for the biggest pay day he’s ever going to get in his life.”
