A keen viewer will be Parker, 30, who trains with the Gypsy King and in 2018 was beaten by Whyte, 34.

And having extensive knowledge on the pair, he predicted only one outcome in the Battle of Britain.

He told Queensbury Promotions: “I feel [Fury] has too much for Whyte – size-wise, power-wise, strength.

“He can move, he can fight, and so I think he’s gonna get Whyte out of there in the first six rounds.

“Dillian’s got a very strong counter left hook. I got caught with it once and it put me down, so [Fury] has to be wary of that.

“But I think Tyson, overall, is too smart.”

He said on talkSPORT: “I think [Fury’s] got enough to beat anybody.
