Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte: Body Snatcher's footwork is being destroyed

Dillian Whyte‘s footwork is being destroyed and ridiculed by boxing fans after the fighter was seen stumbling in his fight against Tyson Fury.

The Body Snatcher faced the Gypsy King for the WBC title on April 23 in front of a 94,000 strong Wembley crowd, which ended after Fury dropped Whyte with a huge uppercut in the sixth round.

He was trying to close the distance to Fury as he tiptoed towards him, before stumbling while attempting to land a jab, opening himself to get hit as he laughed about his mistake.

Whyte mentioned the moment in his post-fight comments, saying: “My game plan was to press him and start moving forward. I was trying to attack, but one slip and I got caught with the shot.”

The clip has been shared on Reddit where fans poked fun at Whyte’s footwork, with one user saying Whyte looked like he “was wearing flippers.”

Speaking with Boxing King Media, boxing trainer Dominic Ingle spoke about Whyte’s tactics in the fight.

“He in all probability noticed Tyson Fury coaching southpaw, and he thought, ‘I’ll negate that by going southpaw.’

“That’s not the best way you do it; that’s not what you do. Fury has fought full-fights boxing southpaw. Dillian Whyte hasn’t. It’s by no means going to be a bonus to place yourself at an obstacle.”

It’s not the first time Whyte’s imperfect footwork has been shared on the internet where fans are quick to get a few jabs in.

Whyte himself spoke about the tactical side of the match in an interview with Sky Sports, saying: “Sometimes it is all about who initiates first, who does something first and who is thinking something before the other guy. That is what it is about you know.”

In the end, Whyte’s tactical stance switching had next to no effect and Fury claimed what was possibly the final victory for the Gypsy King.
