Via Scott Gilfoid: Dillian Whyte says he will vent his frustrations at WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury on April 23 when they meet in front of a sold-out crowd of 94,000 fans at Wembley Stadium in London .
As Whyte (28-2, 19 KOs) quite rightly pointed out today in his press conference, Fury didn’t bring big numbers to his three fights with Deontay Wilder.
It is only until Fury faces Dillian that he sells tickets, and the credit for that must go to ‘The Body Snatcher’ as he is the missing ingredient.
Whyte plans to get in there and dethrone 33-year-old Fury on April 23, ending his two-year reign, putting him back in the ranks of contenders since he competed.
Dillian clearly noticed all that Fury did during the kick-off press conference in his absence.
On April 23, Whyte will shut down Fury once and for all by beating him his first, forcefully stripping him of his WBC title overnight.
For Fury fans, it will be a bitter pill to swallow when they see their hero suffer his first loss, but if he plays his cards right, he will have get a rematch.
Dillian plays an important role in ticket sales
Whyte said at Thursday’s press conference: “Even if I was arrested, I would have to go through legal proceedings to get him to fight me.
“I have no illusions, I know this is an uphill battle. I am very confident that I will defeat him and close the world.
“This is a business, this is not a Tyson Fury show,” Whyte said. “This fight was successful because of me and Tyson Fury. His matches with Deontay Wilder never sold out.
“We are both in this war. I don’t dance to anyone’s tune. We can dance together but it can’t be one-way traffic,” said Whyte.
Whyte to vent his frustration with Fury
“I am in good form and ready to go. I was very hurt and disappointed when I had to go up against Fury,” Dillian said. “We’ve got some good guys competing that keep me going. Young people press you and show you their work. These guys tried to take my head.
“I don’t know what will happen. The bell might ring and I started going into the first round. I only have seven amateur matches, so I’m still learning,” said Whyte.
“Try and tune and support. It’s not just Tyson Fury’s long-distance shot. It’s the show Tyson fury – Dillian Whyte. I come with maximum violence. I’m preparing for everything possible. I was prepared and ready for it,” said Whyte.
