The Body Snatcher could KO the Gypsy King, predicts Tony Bellew

The title holder, 33, is the huge favourite to win the bout – which he has claimed will be his last fight.

Many believe that Fury is on a different level to Whyte following his thrilling victory over Deontay Wilder last Autumn.

However, former cruiserweight world champ Bellew has a much different view as he predicted it will not be an easy night for Fury.

“But Dillian Whyte is a hard night for anybody. Anybody who thinks Dillian Whyte is going to be an easy fight is a fool… he’s big, he’s dangerous, he’s brave and he can punch.

“All those attributes will cause problems for anyone.

“And Tyson knows it too, he’s no fool, but with Tyson’s boxing ability, if he navigates his way through the first six, I expect him to come on strong in the second half of the fight.

“But, believe you me, I actually think he’s going to have to get off the floor.”

Bellew continued: “Dillian Whyte is game as anything and he will jump all over Tyson Fury.

“He won’t care about the showboating, the dancing around, the drop of the hand.

“He also won’t get in Dillian’s head… Tyson can’t break Dillian’s mindset. Dillian is a tough, rough, hard kid.

“I think it’s a really, really good fight. I’m not saying Dillian’s going to knock Tyson Fury out because that would be a stupid statement, but I will say this much, it wouldn’t surprise me if he did.

“It’s a really hard night’s work for Tyson Fury. He might not want to admit this but he knows it.”
