Dillian Whyte vows to take out a lot of frustration on Tyson Fury on Saturday at Wembley.
Whyte is set to fight for the WBC and The Ring heavyweight titles in a massive fight for the heavyweight division. Entering the fight, Whyte has heard all the talk that he has no shot and this is the Fury show and for him, he says this is nothing new for him.
“I’ve been counted out by people close to me – family members and friends, the teachers at school and neighbors – so, some guy on the internet or some journalist talking smack about me, it doesn’t mean nothing to me,” said Whyte on a recent media teleconference (via Boxingscene). “This is not new territory to me… “It’s been a long time coming. We’ve worked hard. We fought top fighters and kept risking the position we was in, and even when it was mandatory, the fight didn’t happen. We actually had to go through a legal process to get Tyson Fury to fight us after he said he would fight us after he beat Wilder to become champion. Unfortunately, we had to push a legal angle and we finally got the fight and here we are.”
Against Tyson Fury, Dillian Whyte knows he has the skills to defeat the Brit and become the heavyweight champion. He knows Fury is one of the best ever but he says once he starts to land some heavy shots, the fight will change and he will get his hand raised.
“I’m up against a big guy,” Whyte said. “It’s a hard fight against an undefeated champion, but I feel good, and I believe that I’ll beat him. I’m very confident in beating him, so it will be good to shut a few people up… I know what I am, I know what I bring, and I got a lot of pain and frustration to take out on someone, and it looks like it’s gonna be Tyson Fury, so let’s go.”
