‘He will get knocked out – that’s a promise’ – Tyson Fury defies dad’s advice and vows to KO Whyte before retiring

, ‘He will get knocked out – that’s a promise’ – Tyson Fury defies dad’s advice and vows to KO Whyte before retiring

TYSON FURY insists he will play Russian roulette with his legacy tonight by going toe-to-toe with Dillian Whyte.

The former sparring partners, who bonded in 2012 when the 33-year-old Brixton Body Snatcher was drafted in to Team Fury as a training partner and lived alongside his family in a Traveller site in Warrington, collide in front of 94,000 fans at Wembley.

Dillian Whyte could be Tyson Fury’s last opponent as the latter teased retirement

The undefeated 6ft, 9in WBC heavyweight champion – and former WBA, IBF and WBO titleholder – insists this is his last dance.

But instead of using his freakishly fast feet, long arms and quick brain to run away from the 34-year-old and into a well earned retirement, he will defy his fearsome father and go out all guns blazing.

Fury said ahead of his fight with Whyte: “He’s a dangerous customer. I know everything about him. Slow feet, decent enough hands. Good counter left hook but he’s a big heavyweight, he’s 6ft 3 and heavy.

“He’s no pushover. Unfortunately as soon as I crack him with this right hand, I will knock him out.

“He’s fighting the best there ever was in this division. He will get knocked out. That’s a promise. 

“I ain’t going in there to play with him, the old Tyson Fury saying ‘You can’t hit me, jab, jab, jab’. I don’t do that any more. That’s gone. 

“My dad doesn’t like the new style, he hates it. He says ‘You’ve got the ability to make these men look like bums’ and I told him ‘That don’t sell PPVs, people want to see a knockout’. 

“I will gun sling with him, no problem. I know I can win because he ain’t got balls, chin or heart like I have, It’s not really fair for them.

“When they get hit they go down and stay down, when I go down I get back up and they think ‘I’m f***** now, I’m dead’. 

“I like the new style, it’s either s*** or bust every time.Russian roulette, him or me. But I’m 6ft 9in, 20 stone and with the heart of a lion. 

“I used to take no punishment in all my fights. In the last three fights with Deontay Wilder I’ve taken more punishment than in my whole career.

“I think ‘how the f*** do these guys do this day in and day out?’ It is nuts, only an idiot would want to do it but I suppose I’m not the sharpest tool in the box.”
