Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte Betting Preview
Tyson Fury (31-0-1, 22KOs) has held the lineal heavyweight title since beating Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015. Following two years of inactivity, the Gipsy King returned to action in June 2018 with an easy fight, a warm-up victory over Sefer Seferi in Manchester. In December 2018, Fury stepped up against the highly rated Deontay Wilder, recording an incredible draw despite two knockdowns in later rounds. In the subsequent two bouts against Wilder, Fury stopped the American start in impressive fashion - in February 2020 and October 2021 - both in Las Vegas.
Dillian Whyte (28-2, 19KOs) is the mandatory challenger since ages and will finally have his world title chance after calling this fight for years. Following a seventh-round TKO loss to Anthony Joshua in 2015 — when both were undefeated prospects — Whyte went on an 11-fight winning streak that included defeats of Joseph Parker, Oscar Rivas, Lucas Browne, and twice against Derek Chisora. He suffered a surprising loss at the hands of Alexander Povetkin in August 2020, a heavy KO due to a single left uppercut. Whyte avenged that defeat in March 2021, knocking out the Russian in four rounds to regain his interim title and his mandatory position.
Tyson Fury, a.k.a. the Gypsy King, has become renowned for his stamina and remarkable powers of recovery. In the unforgettable Wilder trilogy, ‘The Bronze Bomber’ dropped him four times (twice in the first bout, twice in the third). But despite the Wilder’s formidable power, Tyson Fury somehow rose to his feet and found a way to survive. Whyte's chin is solid has well but he suffered devastating KO's against AJ and Alexander Povetkin.

Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte Prediction
Despite his towering 6ft 9in stature and 270 pounds frame, the Gypsy King boasts arguably the best footwork at this weight. He possesses a significantly better boxing IQ and a far wider array of shots in his locker.
Whyte has serious power in both hands, and could trouble Fury with his skills and energy. Anyway, we expect Fury to use his boxing, as well as his reach to keep Whyte at a distance.
At the end of the night, Fury should be able to get a stoppage in late rounds.
