Renowned boxing trainer Teddy Atlas shared his opinion on Tyson Fury’s knockout win over Dillian Whyte and the possible showdown with Francis Ngannou.

Fury entered the boxing ring to put his WBC and The Ring Heavyweight Titles on the line against Whyte. The championship fight was held inside Wembley Stadium on April 23. In the end, Fury scored a sixth-round knockout victory and said he might be done with professional boxing.

Dillian Whyte Wasn’t Prepared, Says Teddy Atlas

During a recent edition of THE FIGHT, Teddy Atlas expressed his belief that Dillian Whyte was ill-prepared for the encounter with Tyson Fury.

“He got knocked out because he was not prepared in the way he should’ve been, and he got hit right on the chin with a right-hand uppercut that he didn’t see.”

Francis Ngannou Handicapped?

Atlas went on to say that while he understands how lucrative a clash between Fury and Francis Ngannou could be, he believes Ngannou will walk in at a disadvantage even with hybrid rules.

“He ain’t gonna be throwing kicks. He ain’t gonna be allowed to do that. He’s not gonna be allowed to use that athleticism to its fullest extent that he should be allowed to use. He’s not, he’s gonna be handicapped.

“But at the end of the day, what is the great equalizer? Money. Does that mean he has no chance at all? I’m not saying that but I’m saying the odds are greatly stacked against him.”
