Tyson Fury fights in Britain for the first time in almost four years when taking on Dillian Whyte at Wembley and will be keen to put on a show for his fans.
The Gypsy King defends his WBC heavyweight title and will also aim to make Whyte pay for his lack of effort in helping to promote this bout.
Punters can get 1.66 for the champion to prevail inside the distance and that is our first Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte prediction.
Tyson Fury Odds
Fury has spent the last two years confirming his superiority over Deontay Wilder, having been unfortunate to only draw their initial clash in December 2018.
The Gypsy King dominated the rematch en route to a seventh-round success and then completed their trilogy with an epic 11th-round knockout.
Plans for a mega-rich unification match with Anthony Joshua were derailed when AJ was upset by Oleksandr Usyk but Fury is now fully focused on the task in hand.
“I am only thinking about Dillian Whyte at this moment,” he declared. “A lot of people are underestimating Dillian Whyte – but not me.
“I gave the guy all the respect he deserves throughout the training camp; I have been training since January, breaking all records in the gym, so I am feeling good, looking good.
“I am not underestimating this guy and have given him the respect I did for Deontay Wilder.”
An incredible 94,000 tickets have been sold for this all-British affair and 33-year-old Fury can’t wait to experience the atmosphere.
“I have been on the road since 2018, been in some tough fights around the world and it’s finally good to come back and create some records on UK soil,” he added.
“To be fighting at the national stadium in London, it just shows how much the fans support me and I am overwhelmed at the support I have been shown since the comeback, it has been absolutely fantastic.
“I just want to say a massive thank you to every person who bought a ticket and made this event possible. Without the fans, there would be no event and that is a fact.”
Whyte is no mug but Fury is fancied to soften him up with his excellent jab and then finish him off once getting on top.
Looking at the 3.4 for the Gypsy King to win in rounds 5-8.
Dillian Whyte Odds
Whyte has been waiting for what seems an eternity for his first shot at a world title, partly due to boxing politics, but also his own shortcomings.
The Jamaica-born Londoner battled back well from a seventh-round loss to Joshua in December 2015, winning his next 11 contests.
However, a surprise fifth-round defeat by Alexander Povetkin stalled his progress again.
Thankfully, Whyte made amends in their rematch last March and will now receive the big pay-day his hard work deserves.
Not that the Body Snatcher is prepared to simply make up the numbers at Wembley, as highlighted by his belligerent approach to promotional duties.
“It is not the Tyson Fury show,” declared Whyte. “It is the Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte show. We are both in the fight together, so certain things need to be done correctly.
“I don’t dance to no-one’s tune, I am a warrior and survivor. We can dance together but it can’t be one-way traffic, so things needed to be sorted out. That is it.”
The 34-year-old added: “I am very confident in beating him. It will be good to shut a few people up.
“It will mean everything to me. I am a guy who as a kid had no future, no education, no family. I am a survivor. I have been on the streets since I was a child.
“I have come from nothing. I had no backing, no support. For someone like me to come from where I have come from and to be heavyweight champion of the world, that is true inspiration.”
Whyte did shake-up Joshua with some good shots and Fury was floored twice by Wilder in his last fight, so the challenger may have his moments.
Some may even be tempted to take 5.0 for the champion to win after being knocked down in their Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte betting tips.
However, it will be a shock to us if Fury doesn’t prove a class apart in this contest.
