By Charles Brun: Dillian Whyte isn’t buying into the “rubbish” Tyson Fury has been telling the media this week about him retiring after their fight this Saturday night at Wembley Stadium in London.

Whyte (28-2, 19 KOs) says the media are “up his a**,” believing everything Fury (31-0-1, 22 KOs) says without question, and he’s not convinced.

To be sure, Fury has been getting a lot of attention this week with his retirement talk, and if this is just a devious gambit to get more boxing fans to purchase his fight on pay-per-view, it could work.

Dillian says he wouldn’t be surprised if Fury asks for a rematch after their fight, which could be the case if he’s starched.

Fury’s pride will get the better of him, and he’ll want to try and avenge the loss in an immediate rematch.

Whether Whyte chooses to give Fury the second fight will depend on the kind of money can make fighting the winner of the July rematch between Anthony Joshua & Oleksandr Usyk.

Whyte skeptical about Fury retiring

“I like when the odds are against me when everyone is against me because it gives me that extra bit of edge,” said Dillian Whyte to Behind The Gloves about him preferring to be the underdog against Tyson Fury.

I’ve already said that Tyson Fury talks rubbish, so let’s see,” said Whyte when asked if he believes Fury’s claims that he’ll retire afterward.

“He’ll say that, but then the next day, ‘Ah, I want to fight Dillian Whyte again.’ I don’t know, he says a lot of things. You guys all seem to be up his a** in what he does and what he says. I don’t care,” said Whyte about the media believing what Fury says.

“When I get here [Wembley Stadium], I’ll be ready to leave it all in there,” Whyte said. “Tyson Fury says a lot of things. If he comes in heavier or lighter, I don’t care.

“I watched ten seconds of the media workout because it doesn’t mean anything. We’re going to fight. If he comes in heavy and wants to trade, that’s better for me,” said Dillian.

“If he wants to box & move, I can do that. I’m not depending on doing one thing. My key in this fight is to be adaptable and pick up the cues & the mental decision to change right away.

“It’s one of those fights where I’m going to need to use my brain a lot. Maybe not so much my power, but maybe more my brain, and then the power will come at some point,” said Dillian.

It’s going to play in Whyte’s favor if Fury chooses to try and bulldoze him in the way that he did in his last two fights against Deontay Wilder. That style will be perfect for Dillian, making it easier for him to send him to the canvas in a heap.
