Tyson Fury predicts how he will beat heavyweight rival Dillian Whyte

The pair collide at Wembley Stadium on April 23 with plans to have up to 100,000 spectators at the all-British showdown.

WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has revealed how he will beat Dillian Whyte ahead of their April 23 clash.

The pair will go toe-to-toe in London and Whyte - who challenges for a world title for the first time in his career - is bidding to become the first fighter to defeat Fury as a professional.

Ahead of the bout, Fury spoke to former two-division titlist Carl Frampton in an interview for BT Sport.

"I'm gonna knock him out," Fury said of Whyte.

"I'm gonna tell you the game plan: straight out of the block, straight to the middle of the ring, push him back, straightaway. Big, heavy artillery from round one, and see how long he can take it for, without being hit back."

Whyte was installed as mandatory challenger earlier this year and will be returning to the ring for the first time since avenging his defeat to Alexander Povetkin in March 2021.

Speaking about the Brixton heavyweight's credentials, Fury said: "He's got a good counter left hook.

"It's not a single, jumping left hook or it's not like a one-two and a left hook. It's more of a catch the right hand, come back with the left hook.

"But, in order to catch that right hand, it's gonna detonate on him. So he's catching it when it hits him on the glove. You know if you put your hands up like that (ear-muff defence, it still hurts [when the punch lands] doesn't it?

"When you get punched and you block it like that, you punch right through the guard in devastating fashion. So block that, take that right hand, right to the face!"

Fury (31-0-1, 22 KOs) is making the second defence of his title and should he win, Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua will be two fighters he is linked to fighting next despite insisting it will be his last fight.
