TYSON FURY's punching prowess will ensure he beats Dillian Whyte by knockout, says his trainer.
Fury's trainer SugarHill Steward is adamant that the Gypsy King has superior knockout ability to Whyte which will be evident when they meet on April 23.
Although Steward admits Whyte packs a devastating blow too, he claims it will be no match for Fury's on the night in front of 90,000 fans at Wembley.
Steward highlighted the Gypsy King's euphoric wins over Wladimir Klitschko and Deontay Wilder as a testament to his bold view.
Speaking to Boyle Sports, Steward explained: "We've seen Dillian Whyte's punching power over the years, he's no different than these other heavyweights are.
"Everybody has a chance in the heavyweight division, that's why it's the most exciting division.

"He dethroned the previous knockout king, so that makes Tyson legitimately the knockout king.

"That makes Tyson legitimately, factually the biggest puncher in boxing.
"You can't become the biggest puncher in boxing if you don't take out the bigger puncher."

"Every round, every moment we'll be looking for the knockout, looking for that knockout punch, looking to make the guy make the mistake and when he makes the mistake we're going to catch him.
