By Charles Brun: Promoter Frank Warren believes Tyson Fury will simply maintain interim WBC champion/necessary Dillian ‘The Physique Snatcher’ Whyte if he chooses to combat him subsequent in early 2022.
The World Boxing Council is predicted to order Fury to combat Whyte subsequent when the WBC meets for his or her conference this month in Mexico. In fact, that doesn’t imply Fury can be compelled to combat Whyte.
It simply means the WBC will try to get ‘The Gypsy King’ Fury to go in that path for his subsequent combat, however he may not take that path.
Warren says that Fury will resolve who he’ll combat subsequent, so we received’t know till he makes the choice. In line with Bob Arum, Joe Joyce is one in all Fury’s choices (31-0-1, 22 KOs) is taking a look at for his subsequent combat.
If Fury chooses to combat Joyce subsequent, you should applaud him for this alternative, as this massive 6’6″ man is the very best contender on the market and worlds higher than Whyte in Charles Brun’s estimation.
For U.S boxing followers, Fury vs. Joyce is a much better combat than Fury-Whyte. Joyce brings extra to the desk when it comes to measurement, energy, athleticism, and his potential to make it aggressive.
Fury will beat Whyte
“I believe he’ll do a job on him. I have a look at Dillian Whyte combating Derek Chisora twice,” mentioned Frank Warren to iFL TV. “I believe the primary combat Chisora nicked it, however the resolution was given to Dillian.
“The second combat, Derek was profitable that combat till Dillian pulled it out the bag and completed what he needed to do, which was an excellent end, and he did that,” mentioned Warren.
Whyte is extra like Dereck Chisora 2.0. He’s only a knockoff model of Chisora, and we already noticed what Fury did to him of their two fights, and it wasn’t fairly.
Joyce (13-0, 12 KOs) can be a superb choice for Fury, as he’s combating on a better stage than the 33-year-old Whyte, and it will make it extra entertaining for boxing followers.
With Dillian, he’s struggled these days, getting knocked chilly by Alexander Povetkin, taking a pounding towards Mariusz Wach, and having a number of bother with Joseph Parker and Derek Chisora.
Whyte (28-2, 19 KOs) and his promoter Eddie Hearn has been banging the drum nonstop since Dillian all of a sudden pulled out of his scheduled combat towards Otto Wallin with the excuse of a shoulder damage.
Regardless that Whyte continues to be injured, he’s calling out Fury reasonably than rescheduling with Wallin. It’s a bit unusual, I need to say, nevertheless it means that Whyte didn’t fancy the combat towards the tough-as-nails massive Swede Wallin (22-1, 14 KOs), who gave Fury probably the most difficult battle of his profession in 2019.
“Then I have a look at what Tyson did with Derek Chisora. I imply, that was a greater Derek Chisora. That was a youthful Derek Chisora,” mentioned Warren.
“It’s unusual with Tyson; he’s like a 10-year in a single day sensation.”
It was disturbing to observe how a lot bother Whyte had in his two fights with Chisora. Whyte arguably misplaced his first combat with Chisora in 2016, and he was on his solution to shedding the second in 2018 till Derek misplaced his cool after a second-point deduction.
