Tyson Fury has told talkSPORT that Dillian Whyte is just as dangerous an opponent for him as Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk would be.
The WBC heavyweight champion is set to defend his world title against his mandatory challenger on Saturday night at Wembley Stadium, live on talkSPORT.
Fury and Whyte finally came face to face at the press conference on WednesdayGetty
And prior to Wednesday’s press conference, Fury joined White and Jordan on talkSPORT to give an assessment of the danger his foe brings.
“The jeopardy is walking onto a big left hook that Dillian Whyte possesses that would probably knock over a bull,” Fury said.
“He has a real left hook on him that would knock out anybody if he catches them with it.
“I think he’s a dangerous fighter.
“He’s just as dangerous as the Joshua’s of the world and definitely as the Usyk’s and everybody else.”
There is respect between the pairGetty
Billy Joe Saunders earlier joined talkSPORT and warned Fury not to overlook Whyte, though it seems the champion already has this under control.
Fury continued: “He’s not to be underestimated or taken lightly, that’s for sure.
“Let’s talk real, he doesn’t have the Tyson Fury boxing skill, he doesn’t have the 6ft 9ins frame or the ability to move like a middleweight, he doesn’t have that.
“But one thing he does have is the heavyweight KO power, which I have as well also.
“So if I’m daft enough to get caught by a big left hook then good riddance, you’ve knocked me out, fair play.
“I’ll shake the man’s hand and say, ‘Fair play.’
“It’s a ten to one shot that you’re gonna knock me out with that left hook, that’s probably the odds. One in ten chance.”
