White spoke about the rematch between Usyk and Fury

Famous British heavyweight Dillian Whyte (30-3, 20 KOs) expressed confidence that his compatriot Tyson Fury (34-1-1, 24 KOs) will find the rematch with Oleksandr Usyk (22-0, 14 KOs) more difficult than the first fight on May 18. According to the 36-year-old boxer, the Ukrainian has gained important experience and confidence that he can even knock out his opponent.

White said this in an interview with the iFL TV YouTube channel. The former interim world champion according to the World Boxing Council (WBC) added that Fury must prepare even better for the second fight against Usyk, otherwise, the Briton will suffer another defeat.

"This is a super-heavyweight division, anything can happen here, so you can't write Fury off. Tyson is also human, he had a lot of hard fights, and a lot of knockdowns. Maybe it had a negative impact on him. Or maybe he no longer has the motivation to fight. If Fury trains hard, he will have a chance in the rematch. But now Usyk's confidence is off the charts - he used to think he could outbox Fury, and now he knows he can hurt Tyson. So Fury will have a tougher task this time," said White.
