Tyson Fury wasn’t surprised that Anthony Joshua was backing Dillian Whyte to beat him on April 23.
Fury defends his WBC heavyweight title against his mandatory challenger at Wembley Stadium live on BT Sport Box Office.
Former unified champion Joshua believes his old rival can defeat ‘The Gypsy King’ next month but Fury says he expected that.
“I kind of expected it because they’re both losers. Both have losses. [Dereck] Chisora’s backing him as well because they’re in their little club of losers and I’m in the elite club of undefeated lineal champion.”
Fury was speaking to a large group of media yesterday after the first press conference which Whyte refused to show up for.
As reported Fury is hoping to spar Top Rank heavyweight Jared Anderson as part of his preparations.
However, the Brit wasn’t certain the American would be able to make it over in time but said he has another alternative should that happen.
“I can spar the local binman for Dillian Whyte because he’s an average heavyweight with average skills. He does nothing special or unusual. He’s just a basic heavyweight.”
