Derek Chisora has claimed he’s ready to put his house on Dillian Whyte to knock out Tyson Fury.
The WBC Fury heavyweight champion will put his belt on the line this Saturday at Wembley Stadium against mandatory challenger Whyte.
The 33-year-old Gypsy King is a 2/9 favorite to beat the 34-year-old Body Snatcher in their big house dust according to the latest odds.
But Chisora seems so confident of a Whyte win that he’s willing to bet his whole house on his former opponent.
speaking on talkSPORThe said: “That’s why we love boxing.
“Guys that you think aren’t going to win, they win and all of a sudden you’re holding your head, ‘What happened? They won?’
“It sounds like it shocks you, but really and truly it doesn’t.
“I’m ready to put my house on this: I’m ready to put my house on Dillian Whyte knocking out Tyson Fury.
“Look at your faces in the studio! Tyson is my homie and I know he listens – Tyson, you’re going to get knocked out.
“It’s the only way for him [Whyte] can win the fight.
“Tyson is very good at what he does.
“He knows the ring very well, he knows how to move, his reach is incredible.
“But I believe Dillian knows how to get to Tyson. He will bring the fight. He can’t box the guy, he has to fight.
“When you fight the guy, are you in good enough shape for 12 rounds? Is he ready to cross to the other side?
“He has to. He’s going to have to sit on Fury’s chest and keep going.
“If you don’t, you’re in no man’s land. The guy has a longer reach, his head is somewhere up there.
