Tyson Fury describes himself as a caged lion ready to pounce when he takes on Dillian Whyte in next weekend’s Wembley clash

TYSON FURY mistakes himself for a caged Blackpool lion about to be unleashed on the wild Dillian Whyte on the wild plains of Wembley.

It’s been more than six months since the 33-year-old WBC heavyweight king feasted on the limp carcass of Deontay Wilder in burning Las Vegas.

and Fury has been sneaking around the grounds of his freezing house in Morecambe Bay ever since – and grumbling about the waiting time Attack Brixton’s Body Snatcher34, in biggest fight in British boxing since Lennox Lewis defeated Frank Bruno in 1993.

The undefeated 6ft 9in father of six said: “For the non-boxing fan I would describe it as a lion running in the planes of Africa in a high speed chase with a gazelle and chasing him to lunch.

“And then it gets locked up somewhere in a zoo like Blackpool. That’s the difference between in and out of combat.

“You feel alive. They awaken every sense in your body, your survival senses.

“It sounds crazy, but even when you get knocked down, you have to awaken another sense in your body to get back up and want to win.

“Every inch that helps you keep going searches your soul for that tiny percentage more to give.”

Fury became a high-definition pay-per-view hero when he miraculously climbed off the screen twice in his tough 2018 Wilder draw.

It drew brilliant comparisons to wrestler The Undertaker.

In the following two bouts, he was filmed LICKING BLOOD from Wilder’s battered body – in the one-sided spanking he dished out in the second part of 2020, and when he shared a slugfest with the Bronze Bomber last year.

And Fury thinks he feels those Hollywood-worthy moments the same way awestruck fans do on TV.

He added: “Nothing in the world feels like fighting.

“You are focused, you can feel your heart beating, you can feel blood pulsing through your veins.

“It’s like you’re in a dark room and all of a sudden an HD TV comes on and you have to watch it – boom.

“It’s absolutely amazing, a surreal experience, and that’s why I keep going back to the fountain. After all those struggles, I still love this game.”

Fury got a controversial draw in the first Wilder fight and took it with grace.

But he and Frank Warren were so disgusted with the assessment of Jack Catterall’s “loss” to Josh Taylor in February that they successfully petitioned not to have British judges at Britain’s biggest fight in three decades.

It’s a deserved bloody nose for the British Boxing Board of Control, which has repeatedly failed to penalize poor judging performance.

And Fury is hoping it improves British governance across the UK – particularly for neighbor Phil Edwards, who recorded a 113-113 draw in that first Wilder clash.

The champion said: “Over the years we’ve seen a lot of shady decisions so we just wanted to be treated fairly.

“We didn’t want to be the victim of one of those unilateral decisions again, we didn’t want any favours, we just wanted to play fair.

“It was the British judge who gave it a tie (in the Wilder tie). Fantastic. He lives just down the road from me in Preston, cheers, mate!

“We don’t need the judges anyway because I’m going to get him out of there.

“It’s the only way you can be guaranteed to win a fight and get your opponent out of there. It’s one of the few sports where you have the opportunity to take a decision into your own hands.”

Fury has vowed to use his shovel-like hands to bury Whyte’s title hopes but has offered to take his old sparring partner over for a drink after the dance.

He barked, “This is a business and there are no friends in business. So while we fight, we’re not friends. After that we go for a beer, no problem.”
