Whyte: Fury Won't Fight Wilder, He'll Withdraw With Injury

Dillian Whyte is not expecting Tyson Fury (27-0, 19 KOs) to follow through with a planned fight against WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs).

Last month, Fury and Wilder announced that a deal was finalized to face each other - likely on a date in November at a venue in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Wilder was ringside in Belfast, and watched Fury win a ten round unanimous decision over Francesco Pianeta.


Fury resumed his career back in June, after being inactive since November of 2015.

Fury believes he's completely ready for Wilder.

Whyte disagrees. He believes Fury will reconsider his upcoming move and create a reason to walk away.

“I’m happy that [Tyson] is back,” Whyte told

“I’m glad that he got himself out of a bad place but you know, Tyson Fury talks a lot of smack but he doesn’t want any smoke, he doesn’t want to fight.

“I can’t see him fighting Wilder but they agreed to a fight and he’ll pull out with an injury because he’s not ready.”

Whyte was ranked in the number one position under the WBC, but the sanctioning body passed him over and instead made Dominic Breazeale the mandatory challenger.

However, Whyte was ordered to face Luis Ortiz in a final eliminator and declined.

“I’ve been trying to fight Wilder for what, two years I think,” Whyte said.

“I’ve been the No 1 challenger for about a year. I’ve had about 12 WBC sanctioned fights, I’ve had about 12 WBC title fights but it is what it is.

“There is a lot of politics in the game and if you look at it this way, fight Dillian Whyte…it’s going to be a hell of a difficult fight but fight Tyson Fury he’s not going to hurt you because he can’t punch and he’s rusty as hell at the minute. Wilder has a good chance of knocking him out. It’s a business. Wilder’s thinking ‘I’ll take the easier day’s work’.”

[QUOTE=EMOBCBG;19071365]There is one thing you don't know about fury. He can be very rough in there if faced by a live opponent. Wladimir was tying him up each time he went in for the kill. Deontey wilder is being knocked…

As annoying and garbage as Whyte is, I'm concerned that he's correct. Fury SHOULD go after the belt. And, I'll give him a lot of respect win or lose. But, I've a feeling he'll bail. Probably claiming he wasn't offered…
