Fury shared an entertaining prediction for the White-Franklin fight: “He is a lazybones”


WBC heavyweight champion Briton Tyson Fury (32-0-1, 23 KOs) knows firsthand the participants in the main fight of the boxing evening, which will take place this Saturday in London (England) – local heavyweight Dillian Whyte (28-3, 19 KOs) will try to inflict a debut defeat on American Jermain Franklin (21-0, 14 KOs).

Dillian Whyte – Jermaine Franklin: forecast and bets for the fight on November 26

In April, White made his first and only attempt to become a world champion, but failed to take the belt from Fury – he capitulated in the 6th round. And Tyson met Franklin recently – they have been sparring since November, preparing for the upcoming fights together, because the champion will soon have a third fight with fellow gatekeeper Derek Chisora.

opinion Fury, “Jermain is a good fighter. But he is exactly the same as the vast majority of Americans. He is lazy. This does not mean that he does not plow in the hall. But in order for him to plow, he constantly needs to be pushed. This is exactly what his trainer and even nutritionist do. But if you leave me alone in the hall, then I will plow at the limit of my possibilities without anyone’s help – not even 100%, but 250%.

Fury believes that Franklin has a very good chance of upsetting White, because “when he reveals himself in the ring, it immediately becomes obvious that the guy has talent. He knows how to combine, he is very fast, he is strong. As soon as he got to my gym, we immediately started with 8 rounds of sparring. So no, it’s definitely not a mismatch. Yes, White is in the top 5 or top 6 heavyweights. But he’s had a lot of tough fights and Franklin is the freshest blood in the division.”

In Fury’s opinion, “If Franklin doesn’t goof around in the ring, if he acts confidently, if he throws streaks and shows a solid workrate while keeping his head moving, then I guess it’s going to be a very tough night for Dillian…”

Yesterday White opened up. He remembered how he trained in a bulletproof vest, because they wanted to kill him, admitted that Usyk sucks for him, and also spoke about the new coach, rematches with Fury and Joshua, unwillingness to fight Joyce.
