Tony Bellew Predicts Whyte's Downfall Before the Joshua vs Whyte 2
In an anticipated Joshua vs Whyte rematch, both fighters with three losses on their records, are set to meet in a pivotal fight for their careers. The heavyweight division’s landscape is being influenced by substantial financial backing from Saudi Arabia, making this match even more crucial.
The outcome of this Joshua vs Whyte fight extends beyond just the British title; it’s a chance for the winner to reclaim their position at the top of the division. Their past encounters and shared history add to the intrigue, leaving fans wondering if their previous animosity will resurface or if experience will lead to a more cautious approach.
Tony Bellew, a former cruiserweight world champion, expressed uncertainty about the loser’s future after Joshua vs Whyte match, emphasizing the high stakes involved. Both fighters know exactly what’s on the line, ensuring we’ll witness their best efforts on fight night.
“August 12 could be the last part of this heavyweight story because I’ve got absolutely no idea where the loser goes.”
“The fact these two go back years inside the ring means that we’ll get the best possible versions on the night, and both will know exactly what’s at stake.
Some questions were asked of both men after their respective battles with Franklin, but everything will be answered here because this is two fighters who won’t give an inch on the night because of their long history and because of what lies in front of them.”
Bellew gives Joshua the edge, citing Whyte’s aggressive style as a potential weakness. Joshua previously stopped Whyte in their professional bout, and Bellew believes Joshua is better when opponents come to him. He anticipates that Whyte’s approach could play into Joshua’s strengths and lead to his downfall.
“As it stands, Joshua must start the favourite. He holds a stoppage win over Whyte in the professional game and he knows he can hurt him when the time comes.
The Whyte we didn’t see against Fury is what I expect to see next month but does that version play into Joshua’s hands? I’ve always said that Joshua is better when opponents come to him. That’s how I see Whyte approaching the fight and I believe it could be his downfall.”
The fight is scheduled for August 12 in London, and fans eagerly await the outcome to see which fighter will rise to the top once again.
