Tyson Fury promises most ‘aggressive’ display against Dillian Whyte in world heavyweight title clash | Boxing News Sky News

Tyson Fury has promised to deliver the most “aggressive” display of his career when he defends his world heavyweight title against Dillian Whyte next month.

The British duo will meet at Wembley on April 23, live on BT Box Office, with Fury defending his WBC belt against Whyte.

During his rise to become world champion, Fury was renowned more for his boxing skills than his power, but successive knockout victories over Deontay Wilder proved he was capable of winning in different ways.

A factor in Fury’s more aggressive style against Wilder was that he weighed a career-high 273 pounds for their last fight, and he’s committed to tipping the scales an even higher number when he meets Whyte.

Fury weighed in at a career-high 273 pounds for his last fight.

“I’m going to try to come the heaviest I’ve ever been,” Fury said Sky Sports News. “Biggest fight – so I’m going to be the heaviest, strongest, fittest, most aggressive I’ve ever been.

“I’m looking for the knockout. No secret, it’s no use for me to lie about game plans. What I’m going to do is I’m going to come straight to the center of the ring, back him up and throw big punches at him until he’s knocked out. »

While Fury expressed extreme confidence at Tuesday’s event to kick off the fight, he is still wary of Whyte’s explosive power.

“I think someone is getting knocked out,” Fury said. “Whether it’s me on the front foot or him on the back foot, somebody gets chinned.

“Every heavyweight is a threat because they’re all big men, they can all knock out another man. It’s something I look forward to, the challenge, if he can knock me out, good luck to him. Otherwise, onto the next one. »

“I will defend with one arm against Whyte”

Whyte was absent from Tuesday’s event as he preferred to stay in Portugal to continue his preparations for the fight, but even without his opponent Fury appeared to be indulging in some liquidation antics.

The 33-year-old said he won’t be making any major changes to his regular training regimen for the fight other than getting ready to box with one hand behind his back.

Fury says Whyte’s decision not to appear at Tuesday’s kickoff of their heavyweight title clash gave him extra confidence

“I don’t specifically do training camps anymore because I train every day, twice a day, five days a week, once on a Saturday whether I’m training for a fight or not,” said Fury.

“So I’m still ready for a fight, I’m ready to go now. I am an always ready fighter. So they can never catch me because I’m always at camp, always.

“I’m going to train a bit with one hand behind my back, because that’s how I’m going to approach the fight. I’m going to defend with one arm, just to put on a show, show them how good I really am. In this fight, you will see me with one hand behind my back, that’s a promise. »
