Usyk or Fury? Whyte Is Confident

In an interview with Boxing Social, British heavyweight (over 90,7 kg) boxer Dillian Whyte (30-3, 20 KOs) shared his thoughts on the upcoming fight for the undisputed heavyweight world title between WBA, WBO, IBF, and IBO titleholder Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs) and WBC champion Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 24 KOs).

"It's hard for me to predict this fight. Really tough to pick a side. You can make arguments for both guys, and it's a 50-50 situation. It comes down to who wants it more and who has done the right things in training.

Fury wakes up for real fights. He won't prepare for Usyk the same way he did for Ngannou. You could tell by the shape he was in when the fight against Usyk was postponed," said Whyte.

The bout between Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury is scheduled to take place on May 18th in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

On March 17th, Dillian Whyte made a triumphant return against Christian Hammer (27-11, 17 KOs). After three rounds, his opponent refused to continue the bout. RTD 3.

This fight was Whyte's first since 2022, when he won by decision against Jermaine Franklin. Since then, Whyte had not fought due to a suspension for testing positive for banned substances. However, through legal proceedings, the Briton proved his innocence.
