TYSON FURY’s uncle insists his nephew’s grudge fight with Dillian Whyte isn’t a gimme fight.
The Gypsy King is set to defend his WBC heavyweight title against his former sparring partner for a week at Wembley Stadium on Saturday and is confident of an easy night at the office.
But uncle and former trainer Peter believes the domestic dust won’t be a walk in the park with the Brixton banger.
During an appearance on talkSPORT, he said: “I think he’s got enough to beat anyone.
“He definitely has better skills, he’s the bigger man. But look, you must not underestimate any fighter.
“Dillian Whyte is a tough fighter and he can hit too. So it’s a good fight and definitely a must see.
“It’s not a given, but if he uses his talents properly, doesn’t get carried away, he should come out with it.”
Fury, 33, goes into his second defense of the WBC strap after a stunning KO win over Deontay Wilder last October.
The win closed the book on Fury’s three-year rivalry with the American, which Peter is happy to see his back on.
He said: “It’s a little bit more exciting for me now to prepare for someone else and not Deontay Wilder.

“At this point, this is the opportunity for Tyson to do some new things that he couldn’t do with Deontay Wilder.
“Some things that we worked on in training camps before this fight, not just that training camp but some things that we worked on that he couldn’t do or didn’t have to do in a fight with Deontay Wilder.
“It’s going to be very exciting in this fight with Dillian Whyte.”
Former training partners-turned-rivals Fury and Whyte have yet to face each other since their Battle of Britain was announced.
Whyte skipped his first pre-fight press conference last month to protest the 80-20 purse split in favor of Fury.
But the pair are likely to face off after they weigh in on Friday week.
