‘I’m willing to put my house on it’: Derek Chisora claims Dillian Whyte will KNOCK OUT Tyson Fury but admits he will have to fight dirty against the Gypsy King to claim a shock win in Wembley showdown
- Derek Chisora has tipped Dillian Whyte to cause an upset in bout with Tyson Fury
- Fury is the overwhelming favourite when the British stars go head-to-head
- But Chisora believes a ‘dirty’ fighting style can bring Whyte success at Wembley
Derek Chisora has claimed that Dillian Whyte will cause a big shock by knocking out Tyson Fury in their sold-out Wembley Stadium bout on Saturday night.
Whyte heads into the contest as a huge outsider against his British compatriot, who is defending his WBC heavyweight title and fighting on British soil for the first time since 2018.
Chisora has faced both fighters twice during his career – losing all four bouts – and insists that despite Fury being the overwhelming favourite to win, Whyte will land what would be a stunning knock-out blow.

‘I’m willing to put my house on it: I’m willing to put my house on Dillian Whyte knocking Tyson Fury out’, Chisora claimed in a live interview with talkSPORT.
‘Look at your faces in the studio! Tyson is my mate and I know he’s listening – Tyson, you’re going to get knocked out.
‘That’s the only way he [Whyte] can win the fight.’
Despite his bold prediction, Chisora insists that Whyte will not be able to outbox his opponent due to the Gypsy King’s incredible reach and believes he will have to resort to dirty tactics to have a chance of causing a big upset.

‘He has to [fight dirty],’ he added. ‘He’s going to have to sit on Fury’s chest and just keep going. If you don’t, you’re in no-man’s-land. The guy has a longer reach, his head is somewhere up there.’
Discussing the fight itself, Whyte also predicted a knockout and said he would deploy a ‘smart’ approach on Saturday night.
‘I am probably more chilled and relaxed than in previous fight build-ups. I have worked hard, I have put myself through hell to get here,’ Whyte said this week.
‘I don’t need months of, “I’m going to smash his face in”. I don’t care about that. It takes me a split second to turn nasty.
Whyte also believes the heavyweight encounter at Wembley Stadium will end with a knockout
‘Tyson has this new style where he is trying to mix so it makes for a great fight. There is unpredictability. One of us is going to get knocked out.
‘He is a good boxer, a big guy who can punch. I can punch, I am a good boxer when I want to box but I like fighting. I have do what I do, listen to my coach and apply the game-plan we have worked on.
‘The key for me is to be adaptable and quick-witted – when I need to fight, when I need to disengage, when I need to go on the offence, when I need to be smart defensively and offensively.’
