Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte: Ringside footage vs Wilder shows Gypsy King's punch power

Tyson Fury dropping Deontay Wilder in brutal fashion

Tyson Fury will be making his title defence next weekend in the highly anticipated, mouthwatering bust up versus Dillian Whyte.

The Gypsy King completely annihilated Deontay Wilder last October, retaining his WBC heavyweight championship as a result. Fury was crowned the winner after a seventh round TKO.

With his next fight only around the corner, it’s the perfect time to recap the ringside footage captured from his second fight against The Bronze Bomber, which took place in February of 2020.

The close-up recording allowed fans to recognise how hard Fury hits; his right hook bellowed around the ring, busting Wilder’s ear in the process. 

Fans in Las Vegas were perplexed as the American went down in instalments.

Evidently shook up from the punch, The Bronze Bomber struggled to continue after receiving the blow to his left eardrum.

Fury was on course to face Oleksandr Usyk in a unification fight in the heavyweight division, however, Anthony Joshua is now set to face off against the Ukrainian in a rematch, hence, it’s opened the door for Whyte to battle with Fury on April 23 at Wembley Stadium.

Having previously held the WBC interim heavyweight title from 2019 to 2020, Whyte still holds the title after beating Alexander Povetkin in March 2021.

It’s Fury’s first fight on home soil since 2018, and he’s convinced he’ll end the encounter victorious.

“Camp is going well.

“Less than three weeks out, I cannot wait to see you all there in the Big Smoke at Wembley Stadium.

“Dillian Whyte is getting knocked out, man! I cannot wait – see you there, all my loyal fans. God bless you all.”

However, Eddie Hearn, boxing promoter and chairman of Matchroom Sport, is convinced Whyte has the capability of knocking Fury out despite the Gypsy King’s quality.

“On paper right now, Tyson Fury is the best heavyweight in the world, but Dillian Whyte can beat anybody on his day. Sometimes when you look at a fight and you say, ‘How can they win?’ He can knock Tyson Fury out.

“Dillian Whyte has the power one-punch power, and he’s a fantastic body puncher as well to knock someone out.

“Any heavyweight in the division, he has the power to knock them out.”

If the Gypsy King unleashes the same right hooks to Whyte as he did to Wilder, questions will be asked whether the Villain will return, or fold the same way Wilder did.
