‘Welcome to big boxing, mush’ – Images emerge of Tyson Fury dancing and relaxed, while Dillian Whyte ‘looked nervous’ ahead of world heavyweight title clash


It’s been just over a month since Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte faced off in an epic fight for the world heavyweight title in an incredible atmosphere in front of 94,000 fans at Wembley Stadium.

Fury knocked Whyte out late in the sixth round with a crushing uppercut, but newly emerged video shows it looks like he was winning the psychological battle before the fight even started.

BT Sport have released a ‘No Filter’ video full of behind-the-scenes footage from the build-up to Fury vs Whyte on their YouTube channel.

In the clip, Fury can be seen dancing, laughing and relaxing as he enters Wembley Stadium and settles into his box.

By contrast, Whyte looked much more serious, to the point that a member of Fury’s entourage, who was watching ‘The Body Snatcher’ enter the Stadium on TV, commented: “He looks nervous “.

“He looks nervous,” Fury replied. “I was just thinking about that. Welcome to big boxing, mush.

To be fair to Whyte, he had fought on the big stage several times before, headlining the O2 Arena for pay-per-view shows.

That being said, it was Whyte’s first and only shot at the world heavyweight title to date, and so the nerfs would be understandable.

While Fury has competed for the World Heavyweight Championship five times, fighting in Las Vegas, Dusseldorf and now London.

Since beating Whyte, Fury has announced his retirement from professional boxing.

Few people took Fury seriously, but he stuck to his guns and insists he won’t return to the ring.

‘The Gypsy King’ is still technically the WBC heavyweight champion and WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman has said he won’t be rushing Fury to vacate the title.

Fury’s wife Paris and US-based promoter Bob Arum think he might be tempted to return with a unification bout with the winner of the rematch between Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua.
