Dillian Whyte put himself through a rigorous test to prepare for previous boxing matches – by lifting 30kg between his teeth. The Body Snatcher will step into the ring for the biggest fight of his career on Saturday night when he takes on Tyson Fury for the WBC Heavyweight title.
The boxer previously uploaded the brutal clip to Instagram as he knocked out the repetitions with ease. There would be no surprise if the 34-year-old has opted for similar workouts ahead of his clash with the Gypsy King.
Whyte landed in the UK from Portugal on Tuesday after his plane was delayed and missed his scheduled face-off with his opponent as a result. He took part in an intense training camp in the Iberian country and his sights are firmly focused on handing Fury his first loss.
The build-up to the fight has been a strange one, with Whyte complaining of an unfair purse split, which at present will see him gain only 20% of the £31.48m from the fight. After the Wembley bout has concluded, Whyte believes he will win his ongoing case against the WBC and Fury’s backers at the court of arbitration for sport and receive much more than he has been granted.
His camp also complained of his family not receiving tickets for the fight and inconsistent communication with Fury’s team. Despite the difficulties, Whyte intends to put that behind him and make history.
“It is a shame because, if everything had been done properly, we could have had a gigantic fight. It’s still a big fight but it should have been massive," he said. "I’m not a pushover. If you try and put pressure on me, I’m not going to fold. I’ll fight back tenfold.”
Can Dillian Whyte spring a surprise and beat Tyson Fury? Let us know in the comments section.
The mandatory challenger for the WBC Heavyweight title commented on the relationship he once had with Fury and what caused it to break down somewhat. “Me and Tyson were cool for a long time. I didn’t really say anything about him and he didn’t say anything about me,” Whyte added.
“Then suddenly he started talking lots of s***. He’ll say some really disgusting stuff because his mouth is like a toilet.” It is clear Whyte will be the underdog on Saturday but he stresses: “I’m a fighter and my mindset is clear. I know there’s going to be a pro-Fury crowd but who cares? I’ve been the underdog my whole life.”
In front of what is expected to be a record 94,000 crowd at Wembley, Whyte will attempt the shock the world and he certainly has the belief and confidence to do it.
