FRANK BRUNO has warned Tyson Fury his fight with Dillian Whyte will be “more awkward” than taking on Anthony Joshua.
Bruno60, explained: “It could go either way.
“Fury would have gone out and challenged everyone from my time because he doesn’t care, he seems fearless.
“He’s said he could drink 15 pints the night before a workout session, then hit the gym the next morning and work out with three or four guys all day.
“Tyson is a favourite, but Dillian has a lot of power.
“You have to give credit to Whyte because they wanted him out of the way for a fight between Fury and Joshua.
“But for Tyson it gets more awkward than turning himself in Joshua because Dillian is ready for battle and can hit with both hands.
“Fury has a lot more experience but unless he keeps his head down to avoid the Whyte bombs he could be in danger.”
WBC champion Fury, 33, has called his Wembley world heavyweight title with Whyte, 34, the biggest British fight since Bruno was defeated by Lennox Lewis 29 years ago.
