‘Welcome to big-time boxing, mush’ – Footage emerges of Tyson Fury dancing and relaxed, while Dillian Whyte ‘looked nervous’ ahead of heavyweight world title clash

It has been just over a month since Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte clashed in an epic heavyweight world title fight amidst an incredible atmosphere in front of 94,000 fans at Wembley stadium.

Fury knocked Whyte out at the end of the sixth round with a crushing uppercut, but a newly-surfaced video shows that it seems he was winning the psychological battle before the fight even began.

BT Sport released a ‘No Filter’ video full of behind the scenes footage of the build-up to Fury vs Whyte on their YouTube channel.

In the clip, Fury can be seen dancing, laughing and relaxing as he comes into Wembley Stadium and settles into his dressing room.

In contrast, Whyte looked much more serious, to the point that one of Fury’s entourage, who was watching ‘The Body Snatcher’ coming into the Stadium on TV, makes the comment: “He looks nervous”.

“He does look nervous,” Fury replied. “I was just thinking that. Welcome to big time boxing, mush.”

In fairness to Whyte, he had fought on the big stage a number of times previously, headlining the O2 Arena for pay-per-view shows.

With that being said, this was Whyte’s first and only shot at the heavyweight world title to date, and so nerves would be understandable.

Whereas Fury has competed for the heavyweight world championship five times, fighting in Las Vegas, Dusseldorf and now London.

Since beating Whyte, Fury has announced his retirement from professional boxing.

Not many people took Fury seriously, but he has stuck to his guns and insists that he will not be returning to the ring.

‘The Gypsy King’ is still technically the WBC heavyweight champion and WBC president, Mauricio Sulaiman, says he will not rush Fury to vacate the title.

Both Fury’s wife, Paris, and US-based promoter, Bob Arum, think he could be tempted back by a unification fight with the winner of the rematch between Oleksandr Usyk vs Anthony Joshua.
