FORMER boxer Dmitry Salita labelled Tyson Fury one of the greatest heavyweights of all time and gave Dillian Whyte no chance of beating him.

Salita believes Whyte is past his best but argued even in his prime he would be no match for The Gypsy King.

He expects Fury to show his greater boxing skill by controlling the fight, suggesting the contest will last for as long as he wants it to.

Salita also pointed to the strong partnership between Fury and trainer Sugar Hill Steward as a reason why Whyte does not stand a chance.

The American-Ukrainian told Vegas Insider: “Tyson Fury and trainer SugarHill’s mentality, style and philosophy are very much in sync.

“They complete each other. They match, they make each other whole. I think Tyson is almost unbeatable with Sugar in his corner.

Dillian Whyte’s trainer Harold Knight is one of the most unheralded and one of the biggest secrets in the sport of boxing, a great guy with a great boxing mind and I have a lot of respect for him.

“He came on the team before the Povetkin rematch but the difference in skills and talent between Fury and Whyte is so wide that I don’t think anyone can help him.

“Harold has added and will add to Dillian Whyte’s preparations, but Sugar and Tyson come together like a puzzle, a perfect circle.

“I’m sorry to say this but I give Dillian Whyte no chance.

“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.”

Boxing legend Ricky Hatton also gives Whyte little chance of victory due to Fury’s quicker speed and better boxing ability.

He advised The Body Snatcher to go for a knockout, suggesting Whyte is capable of landing a powerful punch that could secure an unlikely win.
