Dillon Danis had an offer to make ahead of the heavyweight boxing clash between Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte
One of the biggest heavyweight showdowns in the boxing calendar this year goes down this weekend as World Boxing Council (WBC) heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is set to defend his title against fellow British boxer Dillian Whyte on April 23 at the Wembley Stadium in London.
Fury has a win/loss record of 31-0 heading into the upcoming PPV, while Whyte has a record of 28-2. Arguably the best heavyweight boxer currently, Fury is returning to the United Kingdom for a fight for the first time in almost four years.
Whyte on the other hand is prepared for the wizardly skills of the Gypsy King, and is determined to upset the massive audience- a European-fight record 94,000 crowd.
Elsewhere, Dillon Danis, who hasn’t fought in years, took to Twitter to make an offer to fans claiming that he would be giving away $1000 to one of his fans who liked his Tweet if Fury sees off Whyte.
Here is what Danis had to say: ‘If Tyson Fury wins this fight I’ll give 1 person who likes this tweet $1000’
