Dillian Whyte fears Tyson Fury fight will NOT happen and suspects rival could retire after battering Deontay Wilder

DILLIAN WHYTE reckons Tyson Fury could swerve him for a third time by hanging up his gloves.

WBC king Fury is set to be ordered to face his former sparring partner in November, with the pair's long-awaited showdown likely to take place in February.



But despite being on the brink of his long-overdue crack at a world title, Whyte is refusing to get his hopes up.

The Brixton Body Snatcher said: "The Tyson Fury fight is a fight that I wanted, it's a fight I tried to get before.

"[It was] Mandated for belts and it didn't happen. And fortunately for me now, it seems like it's gonna go ahead.

"But you can never bank on anything Tyson Fury says.

"Because he might say, 'You know what I've had enough I don't want to fight anymore.' Or he might say, 'I need a longer rest.'

"He's had three hard fights with Deontay Wilder. We don't know how much they have taken out of him.

"So we'll just have to wait and see."

He added: "Now I've got to focus on recovering healing up and go and do what I do."

Whyte, 33, has set his sights on a stadium showdown with The Gypsy King.

He said: "It's a major fight in boxing, especially for the UK.

"It's a major fight If me and him can dust-up in the early part of next year in a stadium.

"It's a major fight and one I'm looking forward to."

Whyte is relishing the opportunity to trade blows with his former training partner and believes the feeling is mutual.

He said: "I think Tyson Fury will look forward to fighting me as well. It's a big fight.

"We know each other well, we've sparred with each other, we've spent time with each other we've had our ups and downs and our beefs and stuff.

"But I think, logically, he'll think, 'This a good fight. It's a good homecoming fight and it should happen.' So let's see."
