Eddie Hearn predicts Whyte KOs Fury in round 11 on April 23
Via Charles Brun: Eddie Hearn predicts a round 11 knockout win for challenger Dillian Whyte over WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury on April 23.
Whyte, 34, looked strong in his final game against 41-year-old Alexander Povetkin last year. However, the victory was reduced a bit as the Russian fighter had suffered a bad case of Covid-19 in the months leading up to their rematch.
Hearn insists that Fury (31-0-1, 22 KOs) isn’t strong enough to score the equalizer against interim WBC champion Whyte (28-2, 19 KOs), and that will force a rush into the Deeper rounds against nasty minded challengers.
It would certainly be helpful to find out if Whyte, a fighter he works with, can dethrone Fury.
There would be a lucrative Whyte and Fury rematch under that scenario, or possibly a Dillian vs Hearn rematch promoted by Anthony Joshua. Hearn is like a fox will have them come and go.
“What round will Dillian Whyte be KOed? He won’t get KO. In my opinion, Fury doesn’t have the strength to get rid of Dillian Whyte,” Eddie Hearn told DAZN . boxing.
Hearn predicted: “I believe that actually when they hit the left hook, Tyson Fury will go to sleep and he will go to sleep in round 11.
Hearn will literally make a KILL if Whyte defeats Fury on April 23. Poor Fury will be in a situation where he might have to take the backseat. At the same time, Whyte continues to defend his newly won WBC heavyweight belt against Anthony Joshua or potentially IBF/WBA/WBO champion Oleksandr Usyk should he return from the fight in Ukraine.
The unthinkable would be Whyte beating Fury, Joshua and Usyk to run the table in 2022. It would be a dream for Hearn, who would sit back with a grin like Cheshire cat are from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
To be sure, Whyte will not be a winner at the end of these three games this year, as he looked like an egg-eater in recent matches against Mariusz Wach, Povetkin [first contest]and Derrick Chisora.
The way Whye performed in those three competitions, it’s hard to imagine him beating Fury, Joshua and Usyk in 2022 or spanning two years.
Assuming Whyte beats Fury, it would turn the boxing world upside down, shock fans, and give Dillian & Hearn a chance to brag endlessly.
It will be interesting if Whyte takes the high road and chooses not to gloat about his victory over Fury. It would be great on Whyte’s part if he chooses not to participate kick a dog when it’s collapsing by disposing of poor Fury in a moment of weakness after suffering the first defeat of his career.
Of course, that won’t stop Hearn from reveling in Whyte’s upset win, celebrating on glory and taking pleasure from annoyed Fury fans.
Obviously, it would be good if Whyte remained silent and did not take the opportunity to snarl at the many detractors of his glory days.
Once again, it won’t be possible to stop Hearn from drinking before Whyte’s win and reliving every moment of his victory for fans willing to listen to him speak. Victory would probably mean more to Hearn than Whyte as it would give him a perch on achievement.
Fury vs. Whyte was in the spotlight on April 23 at Wembley Stadium in London, England. Chances are Fury-Whyte will break the attendance record with 100,000 fans overnight.
So far, 85,000 won ticket were sold for the war, which is a staggering number at this early stage.
