Via Jack Tiernan: Dillian Whyte says he believes Tyson Fury will want an immediate rematch after beating him this Saturday night in London, England.
Whyte (28-2, 19 KOs) said in the second game the tables will be rotated with him getting a 90-10 wallet split against Fury (31-0-1, 22 KOs). Currently, Fury is enjoying an 80-20 split, which Whyte is not happy with. He feels it should be 55-45 because he is the interim WBC champion.
Fury has talked a lot this week about this fight being his last, but Dillian knows he has no intention of retiring.
Indeed, Fury has even stopped talking about his retirement since Wednesday, leading fans to believe he was never serious about it in the first place.
If Fury wants the fight, he will need to agree to the terms because otherwise Whyte will go ahead and face the winner of the fight between Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk 2.
It might be better for Whyte to postpone his rematch with Fury while he goes for the bigger reward against winner Joshua-Usyk II as it will be a huge fight.
Whyte says rematch will be 90-10
“It has to be 45 percent but what is it, man,” Whyte told Sports sky about his fight with Fury. “You can’t worry about what other people are doing, you need to worry about what you’re doing and that’s my opinion.
“What am I going to do? Start crying and then lose control? No, the rematch will be 90-10‘ Whyte said with optimism.
“I can’t worry and start to break down right now,” Whyte said. “I’ve had grafters, sharpeners, polished boxers, I’ve had Olympic athletes, clumsy rangers, guys as strong as a hard worker.
“I have a guy who doesn’t speak English, it’s a machine [Mariusz Wach]and I went 12 rounds with him.
“We shared a few camps together,” Whyte said of Fury. “He’s a great fighter, that’s right. Everyone says he’s the heaviest heavyweight of all time, I don’t think so, but he’s the heaviest right now, there’s no denying that because he’s held all the belts.
“He didn’t hold them all at once, but he was the only one undefeated among all of us. But on the other hand, he’s also self-destructive. A lot of what happened was self-inflicted,” Whyte said of Fury.
Dillian is not afraid
“You have to respect him for what he did,” Dillian continued about Tyson. “It’s like this. They sold 94,000 ticket. I am not just an ordinary opponent. I am a compulsive challenger. I’m a big boxing star. I’m not a world champion, but I’ve had more pay-per-view fights than Tyson Fury.
“They wanted to take me around in the economy with other people. It’s Easter time. That puts the war at risk. I can get COVID or a cold or anything that could jeopardize a fight. So I don’t do that.
“They continued to hold out, and things were not signed and things were not done. Then I sat down with my team, and then within two days it was done and I was on it.
“People say I’m scared. I’m not scared, but this is a business. I have to take care of my own interests. It was the hardest camp I’ve been through. I hunt to go. I will take every possible opportunity and risk to get the win.
“I will give it my all, and I believe it. If I didn’t believe it, I wouldn’t have fought hard for it. God willing, I get the victory and then we’ll see,” said Whyte.
