Tyson Fury warns Dillian Whyte will be ‘too many’ and Wladimir Klitschko’s win ‘horrible’ as Body Snatcher aims for March return after shoulder injury


Xavier Miller believes Dillian Whyte will be “too much” for Tyson Fury if they finally meet and insists he has the power to compete with Deontay Wilder.

‘The Body Snatcher’ is hoping to return to the ring by March 2022 after injuring his shoulder before his proposed fight with Otto Wallin.

Whyte, who holds the interim WBC belt, was next to be called up by the board as a mandatory challenger for Fury’s title after Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua agreed to a rematch.

With the possibility of the next undisputed fight happening now, Fury looked set to fight Whyte, only over an existing arbitration case filed by the Brixton native to delay proceedings.

The “Gypsy King” is considered the best heavyweight in the world by Ring Magazine, but Miller believes Whyte has all the attributes to pose far more problems than his previous enemies such as Deontay Wilder or Wladimir Klitschko.

“I just think Dillian is going to be a bit too much for him,” Miller told talkSPORT. “I think Klitschko was at the end of his career.

“Even though it was a fantastic win, it’s not a fight that anyone is going to go to YouTube and watch again.

“It was horrible, let’s be honest. It wasn’t a good fight, but Tyson has actually become a fan-friendly fighter now.

“Wilder’s fights were a few decent fights so he’s been in a few decent fights and I’ll look at them back. I think that’s why it’s the best time to have this kind of fight.

“Dillian enjoys engaging in exciting fights, Tyson seems to be going that route now. I respect him, he’s good. He’s been boxing for a very long time so he knows exactly what he’s doing.

“I think he found the right dance partner in Deontay Wilder, but Wilder is not Dillian.

While “The Bronze Bomber” was considered the division’s most devastating puncher, there are skeptics who doubt his credentials as a boxer.

Miller is one such person, who has made huge strides on Whyte’s technical side since taking charge of his coaching career.

And while he may be a more complete boxer, Whyte’s coach warned Fury to expect explosive power he had yet to witness.

“Dillian can also take you out in one fell swoop,” he said. “Even up to this date, no one has eliminated Dereck Chisora ​​in one fell swoop.

“Dereck was with everyone and got hit with a lot of net shots and a lot of the guys couldn’t get Dereck to move. Dillian did it all in one fell swoop.

“So with Dillian again, the power is real. I’ve been with Dillian for about two years now and I want him to be a more complete fighter, so that’s what I’ve been working on with him.

“He’s an even more dangerous fighter, so for me, yeah, Wilder has a right hand and it’s real and I respect it, but Dillian has a lot more tools in the box.

“It’s a different puzzle for Tyson, there’s going to be a lot for him to deal with. I think that’s probably the reason there is some hesitation.
