Whyte: If Fury Goes For That KO, Trades, He'll Get Chinned Early

Heavyweight contender Dillian Whyte is paying no attention to Tyson Fury’s claim that he will come out firing for the knockout on Saturday night, when he faces WBC world champion Deontay Wilder in a rematch at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Fury has maintained that he plans to knock Wilder out in only two rounds.

They fought to a controversial twelve round split draw in December 2018 at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Wilder has knocked out every boxer that he ever faced in the pro ranks - except Fury. But Fury was nearly stopped in the twelfth and final round of the first encounter, when he was dropped very hard and miraculously beat the count.

Whyte, who is slated to face former world champion Alexander Povetkin on a date in April or May, holds the WBC's interim title and is the mandatory challenger to the title. The winner has to face Whyte by February 2021.

Whyte has been waiting for a mandatory crack at the WBC world title since 2018.

"One thing I’ll say, Tyson Fury is talking absolute nonsense about he’s going to come out and knock out Deontay Wilder in the first two rounds, that he’s going to stand and trade. If he does that, he gets chinned early," Whyte told Sky Sports. 

"Deontay Wilder, I’ve been chasing him forever. But anyone that wants it can get it. I’m already a world champion, the real WBC world champion."

The loser of the Wilder vs. Fury rematch has the contractual right to force an immediate trilogy fight.

There is a difference between fighting aggressively and simply trading with an opponent. Fury clearly believes in a philosophy of hitting without being hit and I don't think he will ever abandon that. Wilder definitely goes into a defensive shell…

Is Whyte implying that he would be on his bike when he eventually fights Wilder?

Whyte said he would do the same thing..
