Dillian Whyte always preaches maximum violence, and he is ready to deliver once again at Wembley Stadium on Saturday night.
‘The Body Snatcher’ finally get his shot at a world heavyweight title at the age of 34, when he challenges Tyson Fury for the WBC, Ring magazine and lineal titles in front of more than 94,000 fans at Wembley Stadium.
Whyte of course missed the first press conference to announce the bout, and also skipped Tuesday’s open workout in London. But on Wednesday he was on stage to promote the biggest fight of his life. And after all the silence so far, he was not in any mood to waste words. He is here to fight.
Whyte ready to fight
“You won’t hear no bullsh*t from me, I am ready to rock ‘n’ roll.
“There was no strategy to not being here before and there are two sides to every story and the sides need to come to an agreement.
“You will see what I do on Saturday night, but I have been working on being adaptable because I will constantly need to adapt and make smart decisions. I will go in there and do my thing.”
“I am excited to be here, sorry I couldn’t be here earlier, but I am here now so let’s go.”
Whyte is an incredible story. Written off so many times after a hard journey through life which has been well documentede, he now has a golden opportunity to scale boxing’s greatest summit. And it comes in his own backyard.
“It means everything to have this fight in my home country, for the world title at Wembley, which is not too far from where I am from. It means everything and is massive, it is the moment I have been waiting for.
Whyte written off so many times
“Like Tyson said, we never expected to be here, me especially after taking risks time and time again. I’ve had a couple of slip-ups along the way, but I am here and ready to go.”
Ring walks for Saturday’s showdown are expected to be between 2200 and 2300 UK time (1700 and 1800 Eastern), with the PPV airing on BT Sport Box Office (£24.95) in the UK and ESPN ($69.99) in the U.S.
The next big milestone in fight week is the weigh-in, which happens Friday afternoon UK time.
