Dillian Whyte believes Tyson Fury’s rightful name is really Luke with the heavyweight champion altering it to make himself sound brutal and tough. Accurate Gist reports.
Fury is at the highest point of the heavyweight division being the WBC champ, with Whyte rematching Alexander Povetkin this end of the week.
The victor will be Fury’s required challenger, however the Gypsy King is relied upon to battle individual champion Anthony Joshua instead.
Fury and AJ are presumed to have marked agreements on two battles, however the scene and dates are obscure.
Whyte realizes getting his payback on Povetkin this end of the week will return his name to the cap should the Fury and Joshua session fail to work out.
In spite of the fact that the Body Snatcher has recently occupied with a conflict of words, and asserted that Fury’s original name isn’t Tyson.
Speaking to The Sun, Whyte said: “My real name is Dillian. I know his real name is Luke.
“He changed it to Tyson to make himself sound harder. People can have a little look around on the internet and see for themselves.
“In boxing, the name Tyson is a lot more sellable than Luke.”
Fury was supposedly given a remote possibility of endurance following his introduction to the world, being brought into the world three months untimely and weighing simply 1lb.
Fury’s dad John has recently said: “He was just a pound in weight. The doctor said he probably won’t make it, he’s very weak.
“I said to all them doctors, he won’t be small, I said he’ll be nearly 7ft tall, 20 stone, the next heavyweight champion of the world.”
“I thought, ‘There’s only one name fitting for him, he’s fought hard to become a person living in this world.’
“Mike Tyson was the best in the world at that time. Tyson Luke Fury – that’s his name.”
