Frampton: Rage can beat Whyte on the outside and inside
Carl Frampton believes Dillian Whyte’s best chance of beating Tyson Fury is to drag him into a fight but still thinks such a scenario would benefit the WBC heavyweight champion.
Frampton and former players and champions David Haye and Frank Bruno were in London to discuss next week’s monster event at Wembley Stadium, which more than 90,000 people will attend.
As the date counts down and the controversies draw closer, the debates and predictions are starting to gain traction. A conversation revolved around the kind of tactics Fury and trainer Sugar Hill would use.
In his last two performances, the undefeated champion has grabbed the fight by the throat behind Deontay Wilder. Fury travels through fire to decisively defeat him in their rematch and become the last man standing in their thrilling trio fight.
If ‘The Gypsy King’ plans to tear down the fence with Whyte, a tactic that challengers will enjoy, Frampton says Fury will win and can win no matter what he chooses to do.
“If he stands and has a fight, that gives him more of a chance and kinda has to try to get Fury into a fight,” Frampton said. Ryan Elliott of Boxing Social.
“But having said that I still feel if that’s how the fight goes, I still feel like Fury would win the fight. I don’t want to sound like I’m being disrespectful to Dillian, he’s more than a boxer’s chance, he’s a good boxer with a good jab and very good left hook but I just feel like Fury too smart and he won it on the outside or the inside.
“His best chance is to drag Tyson into a fight and land the left hook but Tyson is smart enough to know that is his best chance and I think he will be aware of that. I would say that Tyson Fury will probably stop him late.”
