Heavyweight boxer Derek Chisora says he is willing to put his house on Dillian Whyte knocking out Tyson Fury on Saturday.
Fury goes into his WBC title defence against fellow Brit Whyte as the overwhelming favourite, with many giving his opponent little chance of victory.
Chisora has lost to both men twice – and Del Boy offered up a stunning prediction in the talkSPORT studio on Thursday morning.
“This is the whole reason we love boxing,” he began, previewing the Wembley showdown which is live on talkSPORT.
“The guys you think are not going to win, they win and suddenly you hold your head, ‘What happened? They won?’
“It looks like it shocks you, but really and truly it doesn’t.
“I’m willing to put my house on it: I’m willing to put my house on Dillian Whyte knocking Tyson Fury out.
“Look at your faces in the studio! Tyson is my mate and I know he’s listening – Tyson, you’re going to get knocked out.
“That’s the only way he [Whyte] can win the fight.”
Although it may not be his house, Chisora has backed up his bold claim by wagering £100 on a Whyte victory with talkSPORT host Simon Jordan.
The former Crystal Palace owner said: “I just bumped into Derek Chisora in the corridor and he had the audacity to challenge me to a bet.
“He’s bet 100 quid that Whyte will knock Fury out. I think Fury will win.
“Now, Derek runs off with things, like our awards, and doesn’t bring them back. So we’ve got to get him directly after the fight. I don’t want crappy £5 notes from his underpants, I want proper money out of the ATM!”
Explaining his view, Chisora did not downplay the size of the task facing Whyte against the unbeaten Fury.
“Tyson’s very good at what he does,” Chisora added. “He knows the ring very well, he knows how to move, his reach is unbelievable.
“But I believe that Dillian knows how to get to Tyson. He’ll bring the fight. He can’t box the guy, he has to fight.
“When you fight the guy, are you fit enough for 12 rounds? Is he prepared to go to the other side?”
When asked if Whyte will have to make it a ‘dirty’ fight, Chisora replied: “He has to. He’s going to have to sit on Fury’s chest and just keep going.
“If you don’t, you’re in no-man’s-land. The guy has a longer reach, his head is somewhere up there.”
