Fury’s Final Fight

Since March, Fury has been saying that Whyte will be his final fight and that he will retire after Saturday night. And during a recent appearance at the Pat McAfee Show, Fury reiterated that he will be hanging up his gloves after this bout. He also said that he isn’t just looking to win the bout but wants to end it inside the distance.

The Gypsy King is no stranger to abbreviating his fights. In 31 wins, Fury has knocked out 22 opponents for a 70% knockout rate. Three out of his last four wins have been by knockout, including the last two against former WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder. There’s no question that Fury packs the power in his punches and if he is indeed walking away from the sport after this bout, there’s also no doubt that he wants to leave a lasting impression.

However, Whyte will not be an easy out for Fury as he is for any other heavyweight. The Body Snatcher is known as one of the heaviest punchers in the division and he has a fighting style that doesn’t care much whether he knocks out his opponent or if he gets knocked out. Whyte has knocked out 19 of 28 opponents or a 68% KO rate. His two losses have also been by knockout. So if Fury wants to end the fight inside the distance, Whyte will gladly oblige in a war where one gets slept.
