Heavyweight veteran Derek Chisora believes Dillian Whyte will pull off an upset on Saturday night, by knocking Tyson Fury to capture the WBC world championship.

A record crowd of 94,000 will be present to watch Fury defend his belt against Whyte, who is the mandatory challenger.

Chisora has faced both of the main event boxers, twice.

Fury is a tremendous favorite in the fight, as Whyte is only one fight removed from being knocked out cold by an aged Alexander Povetkin.

Despite all of that, Whyte believes a shocking surprise will happen.

"I'm willing to put my house on it that Dillian Whyte is gonna knock Tyson Fury out. Tyson is my mate, but I know he's listening and he's gonna get knocked out," Whyte told Talk Sport.

Chisora lost a very controversial twelve round split decision to Whyte in 2016. Two years later, Chisora was ahead on points when he suffered a knockout loss in the twelfth round. Both fights were wild back-and-forth wars.

On the other hand, he was dominated by Fury in both of their fights.

In 2011, Fury easily outboxed Chisora over twelve rounds. Two years later, Fury broke down and stopped Chisora in ten rounds.

Fury is coming off one of the biggest wins of his pro career - a dramatic eleventh round knockout of Deontay Wilder in their trilogy fight last October.

He maintains that the upcoming fight with Whyte is the final bout of his pro career.

"I'm happy to go back to Morecambe and be left alone. I'm gonna delete my Instagram, I'm getting away from being a star," Fury said.

"I want to be left alone to live my normal little life, pathetic life I live in Morecambe Bay - going to school, taking out the bins, getting a haircut, valeting the car, going out once a week and training every day. Win, lose or draw on Saturday night they'll be no more fights."
