Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte: Derek Chisora willing to bet his house on a Body Snatcher knockout

  • Tom Ward

Derek Chisora has claimed he is willing to put his house on Dillian Whyte to knock out Tyson Fury.

WBC heavyweight champion Fury will put his belt on the line this Saturday at Wembley Stadium against mandatory challenger Whyte.

The Gypsy King, 33, is a 2/9 favourite to beat the Body Snatcher, 34, in their big domestic dust-up according to the latest odds.

But Chisora appears to be so confident of a Whyte victory that he is willing to bet his entire house on his former opponent.

Speaking on talkSPORT, he said: “This is the whole reason we love boxing.

“The guys you think are not going to win, they win and suddenly you hold your head, ‘What happened? They won?’

“It looks like it shocks you, but really and truly it doesn’t.

“I’m willing to put my house on it: I’m willing to put my house on Dillian Whyte knocking Tyson Fury out.

“Look at your faces in the studio! Tyson is my mate and I know he’s listening – Tyson, you’re going to get knocked out.

“That’s the only way he [Whyte] can win the fight.

“Tyson’s very good at what he does.

“He knows the ring very well, he knows how to move, his reach is unbelievable.

“But I believe that Dillian knows how to get to Tyson. He’ll bring the fight. He can’t box the guy, he has to fight.

“When you fight the guy, are you fit enough for 12 rounds? Is he prepared to go to the other side?

“He has to. He’s going to have to sit on Fury’s chest and just keep going.

“If you don’t, you’re in no-man’s-land. The guy has a longer reach, his head is somewhere up there.”
