Fresh off his brutal KO of Dereck Chisora, the Bodysnatcher is eyeing a huge heavyweight fight in 2019

Dillian Whyte has told talkSPORT he would ‘love’ to fight Tyson Fury, but vowed to knock the Brit out if they do ever met.

The ‘Bodysnatcher’ is currently enjoying a brief respite from boxing after brutally knocking out Dereck Chisora at the 02 in their rematch last month.

However, he is not sitting and waiting for the big fights to come to him. Having already called out Anthony Joshua on Friday morning, the Brixton native then sensationally admitted he would be keen to fight Wladimir Klitschko – should the Ukrainian come out of retirement.

While 30 is a relatively young age for a heavyweight, Whyte is keen to get himself into world title contention sooner rather than later and fanned the flames of a potential British brawl with Tyson Fury this year.

“I’ve been trying to fight Tyson Fury for ages,” Whyte told Jim White on talkSPORT. “I would love to fight Tyson Fury.”

“It’s a big fight – he’s one of the best fighters in the world. He brings certain challenges to the fight game that no other fighter brings; his height, his awkwardness and his boxing ability.

After almost three years away from the pinnacle of the game, Fury sensationally returned to score a controversial draw against WBC champion Deontay Wilder in Los Angeles at the start of December.

And while a rematch is very much on the cards for the early summer, Whyte has already developed a game plan to face the 6”9 switch-hitter.

“I would beat him of course,” he added. “I wouldn’t try to outbox Tyson Fury; I would try and knock him out.

“I wouldn’t try and outbox him because he is long and awkward and that is his game.”

The ‘Gypsy King’ earned global acclaim from the Wilder fight, not just for his technical ability, but for also climbing off the canvas on two separate occasions.

The second knockdown, which came in the twelfth round after a vicious combination, seemed to render Fury unconscious.

However, the 30-year-old stunned the world and got back up to arguably win the round in an impressive showing.

But Whyte believes he knows the key to beating Fury.


“Some people can take punches to the face, but he has a body as well. Deontay Wilder did not attack his body and if you can attack the body and wear people down then you can break them down.

“I have a better punch selection than Deontay Wilder, I put my combinations together better than him, I have a better jab, better boxing awareness and I carry power late into the fights as well.

“And early in the fights I have got just as much power as well.”
