Boxing Tips and Predictions: Tyson Fury v Dillian Whyte

News Content

Will he or won’t he?

That’s the question on every boxing fan’s lips as Tyson Fury prepares to defends the WBC Heavyweight Title against compatriot Dillian Whyte this weekend.

Known for his mind games and way with words, much of the lead up to this fight has been dominated by Fury’s claim this is his last ever fight.

After a hellacious trilogy with the Bronze Bomber, Fury enters this priced as a prohobitive $1.16 favourite.

But Dillian Whyte comes into this having written the wrong, beating Alexander Povetkin in their rematch back in March last year.

Expect British boxing fans to pack out Wembley Arena in a show for the ages. The walkouts, the introductions, the light and sound display. It’s going to be a wild couple of hours.

And it’s pretty clear what we are likely to get here. Tyson Fury heads into this fight as perhaps the most skilled heavyweight of all time.

He sees things that other boxers can’t. He hits and doesn’t get hit.

A beauttiful thing to watch.

In Dillian Whyte we have a power puncher but the one thing he may bring to this contest which Deontay Wilder couldn’t implement is a strong jab.

Aside from landing something from the heavens, this appears his best chance of wearing on Fury.

It’s true he can’t get into a technical chess match but if he can stick and move in the early rounds, perhaps work the body of Fury, he may just have a chance of the unthinkable.

Fury on the other hand has a number of paths to victory.

He can fight on the inside or the outside. He can lead the dance or play counter-puncher.

It leads to a fascinating contest which is sure to draw the eyeballs of the fight world this weekend.

This is no easy fight to tip up but if you’re the type of punter that doesn’t mind taking a fly, Whyte can definitely win this fight.

At $5 just to get his hand raised, it’s worth taking the chance that he has the game plan and the skills to test Fury in what would be a truly historic moment for the sweet science.
