Tyson Fury’s trainer SugarHill Steward has admitted that Dillian Whyte has a puncher’s chance of beating the WBC champion next weekend – but insists the Body Snatcher will be stepping inside the ring with the ‘knockout king’.
Fury and Whyte go head-to-head at Wembley Stadium on April 23, with the Gypsy King’s WBC world title belt on the line in what is being touted as his last ever fight in boxing.
Steward has acknowledged that Whyte is a ‘tremendous puncher’ and that they have given the Brixton native the respect he deserves during Fury’s training camp.

However, Whyte should be wary that he’s facing ‘the biggest puncher’ in boxing after Fury dethroned the likes of Wladimir Klitschko and Deontay Wilder along the way.
‘We’ve seen Dillian Whyte’s punching power over the years, he’s no different than these other heavyweights are. Everybody has a chance in the heavyweight division, that’s why it’s the most exciting division,’ Steward told BoyleSports Boxing.
‘Everybody wants one heavyweight to hit the other heavyweight and them to go down. That’s it. That’s what the heavyweight division brings. That’s what the heavyweight division is about. It’s about that one punch knockout at any given time, it can happen.

‘Yeah, Dillian Whyte has a chance. He can punch, he’s a tremendous puncher. He’s almost got as many knockouts as Tyson Fury. The only real difference if I’m really being honest is Tyson Fury is the knockout king.
‘He dethroned the previous knockout king, so that makes Tyson legitimately the knockout king. He’s the big puncher in boxing now, the same way he dethroned Wladimir Klitschko, he dethroned Deontay Wilder by knocking him out – giving him a taste of his own medicine – twice.
‘That makes Tyson legitimately, factually the biggest puncher in boxing. You can’t become the biggest puncher in boxing if you don’t take out the bigger puncher.’
Steward has also revealed that Fury will not be wanting to leave the outcome to the judges’ decision and will be looking to pounce on any mistake Whyte makes to get his knockout.

‘We’re going for the knockout, get that knockout every time. First round, second, third, fourth, fifth, six, seven, eight, nine, 10, 11 and 12.
‘Every round, every moment we’ll be looking for the knockout, looking for that knockout punch, looking to make the guy make the mistake and when he makes the mistake we’re going to catch him.
‘That’s the whole idea wrapped up in one. There’s judges and everything but why do we want to use judges when there’s two men in there who can decide this fight on their own. There’s an old saying – if you want something done right do it yourself.’
