DILLIAN WHYTE can shock the world and beat Tyson Fury this weekend – but only if he does what Anthony Joshua didn’t do against Oleksandr Usyk.
The Brixton banger will bid to dethrone the WBC Gypsy King on Saturday night in a historic domestic dust-up at Wembley Stadium.
The elusive and fleetfooted Fury is a huge favourite to win the Battle of Britain, but promoter Eddie Hearn reckons Whyte can get the job done if he doesn’t give the Wythenshawe warrior any breathing room.
During an appearance on talkSPORT, the Matchroom Boxing chief said: “Dillian Whyte can with this fight by knockout.
“I think he’ll lose most rounds, to be honest with you, because I think Tyson is very difficult to win rounds against.
“But if Tyson gets sloppy, Tyson gets hurt and, like I said, disrupt the rhythm and cut him off.
“Like Anthony didn’t do against Usyk. Cut him off in the ring and when he touches those ropes, unload everything.
“It doesn’t matter [where]; belly, shoulders, neck, side of the head, anywhere you can hit him.
“Because Tyson is a very, very difficult to hit.”
Whyte’s long-awaited crack at a world title comes on the back of a 13-month hiatus.

And Hearn admits the Brixton Body Snatcher’s time on the sidelines could work against him on fight night.
He continued: “The inactivity; both men have been inactive.
“But the inactivity for Dillian is slightly worrying and he’s got to get into the fight early.
“Because what you don’t want to do, again, going back to Joshua-Usyk is be six rounds in and be four or five rounds down in a fight like that.
“Because Tyson will coast from there. But Dillian is very fit, very strong.
“And also, this is his chance. And he’s not the kind of guy that’s gonna go in there and let it pass him by.
“So I expect him to give everything on Saturday.”
Veteran promoter Hearn believes the pair’s grudge match will end in a late stoppage in Whyte’s favour.
He said: “Tyson Fury in my opinion doesn’t carry the power to take Dillian Whyte out.
“I believe actually when they trade up left hooks Tyson Fury will go to sleep, and he will go to sleep in round 11.”
