TYSON FURY’s uncle insists the Gypsy King’s grudge match with Dillian Whyte isn’t a gimme fight.
Fury will defend his WBC heavyweight title against his former sparring partner at Wembley Stadium a week on Saturday and is confident of having an easy night at the office.
Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte are set to collide in a grudge match later this month
Gypsy King Fury has vowed to knock Whyte “spark out”
But uncle and former trainer Peter believes the domestic dust-up with the Brixton banger won’t be a walk in the park.
During an appearance on talkSPORT, he said: “I think he’s got enough to beat anybody.
“He’s definitely got a better skillset, he’s the bigger man. But look, you can’t underestimate any fighter.
“Dillian Whyte is a rough fighting man and he can bang as well. So it’s a good fight and definitely a must-see.

“It’s not a foregone conclusion, but if he uses his talents properly, doesn’t get carried away, he should come out with it.”
Fury, 33, goes into his second defence of the WBC strap on the back of a stunning knockout victory over Deontay Wilder last October.
The win closed the book on a three-year-long rivalry with the American, which Peter is glad to see the back of.
He said: “To me it is a little bit more exciting now, getting ready for someone else and not Deontay Wilder.
“At this point, this is the opportunity for Tyson to do some new things that he wasn’t able to do with Deontay Wilder.
“Some things that we worked on in training camps leading up to this fight, not just this training camp, but some things we worked on that he wasn’t able to do or didn’t have to do in a fight with Deontay Wilder.
“It’ll be very exciting in this fight with Dillian Whyte.”
Former training partners turned rivals Fury and Whyte have yet to face off since the announcement of their Battle of Britain.

Whyte skipped their first pre-fight press conference last month in protest of the 80-20 purse split in Fury’s favour.
But the pair will likely face off after they weigh in on Friday week.
