Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte: John Fury's brilliant take on Gypsy King's 'average Joe' physique

John Fury praises Tyson Fury over his physique

Ahead of his showdown with Dillian Whyte, Tyson Fury is looking in great shape and is raring to go.

Fury is set to defend his heavyweight title on home soil when he faces Whyte this Saturday at Wembley Stadium.

At 6’9, no one is yet to go toe-to-toe inside the ring and beat ‘The Gyspy King.’

This weekend, Whyte will be looking to shock the world by becoming the first man to ever beat Fury.

Speaking ahead of the heavyweight clash at Wembley, John Fury, Tyson’s father, had his say on his son’s physique.

“For all those people out there who are not fortunate (enough) to have a genetic gift like a good body, he’s for them. He gives everyone hope.

“That is the number one best heavyweight in the world and he looks like an average Joe. And you know what, I love every inch of fat on that body.”

Over the years, many fellow heavyweights have mocked Tyson’s appearance and deemed him “too fat” to be considered an elite-level boxer.

With that being said, Fury’s boxing IQ and ability are quite simply second to none.

However, every time ‘The Gypsy King’ has stepped foot inside the ring, he continues to prove his doubters wrong and show why he’s the pound-for-pound best heavyweight on the planet. 

He’ll be looking to once again why he’s the best in the world by putting in a dominating performance against Whyte.

Fury is coming off of a knockout win over bitter rival Deontay Wilder. For the first time in nearly three years, Tyson will face a boxer that isn’t named Wilder.

As for Whyte, ‘The Body Snatcher’ is coming off of a rematch win over Alexander Povetkin back in March of 2021. 

This weekend’s main event will be the highest attended sporting event at Wembley. It’s confirmed that there will be 94,000 in attendance.
