    Frampton predicts Fury vs Whyte

    "If you want to build an opponent who is going to make Tyson Fury look good, you build something very close to Dillian Whyte," he told SunSport.

    "Whyte has a chance because he is big, game, brave heavyweight, with a big left hook and he will be in there swinging until it’s over.

    "But I just feel Dillian is made for Fury, Dillian has a decent jab but a lot of his stuff is wild hooks and I think we might see a different Fury to the second and third Wilder fights.

    "I think we will see the Fury of the first Wilder and Klitschko fights, who used to dance around people and make them look foolish at times, clever boxing."

      Frampton on Fury at Wembley

      "It will gee him on and maybe change how he fights. He will want to impress and put on a show," the Northern Irishman said.

      "I think he could win but moving around and jabbing in a boring fight but I don’t think he will want that. 

      "He has become the peoples’ champion and because of all that he will want to put on a show.

      "He will have to keep his emotions in check, I had it with the Scott Quigg fight.

      "People wanted and expected a war but I was winning all the rounds by doing very little and my trainer Shane McGuigan – to his credit – told me to just keep doing it.

      "But I think Fury will really go for this and look for the stoppage."

      Whyte's accusation on John Fury

      The collision between Tyson Fury's dad John and Dillian Whyte happened because the Body Snatcher accused John of trying to "rob 90,000 fans of a fight".

      He didn't respond to that well at all by trying to square up to Dillian Whyte after what was a respectful press conference.

      Talking to BT Sport post-presser, Whyte said: "Tyson Fury's dad needs to relax.

      "My man's like 600 years old and he's stepping forward, trying to not let my guys get on the stage.

      "I told him, 'John calm down, you're an adult screaming like a child, relax'.

      'It's our day, Why are you getting yourself involved, this is mine and your son's day'.

      "He's always trying to get in front of his son, I just said 'old man take it easy'."

      The fast and the Furyous

      So there were no fireworks between Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte as the whole nation expected.

      But instead, it was the Gypsy King's father was the one who tried to start a commotion with Whyte's camp.

      However, Fury managed quickly intervene by resolving the situation before it got out of hand.

      I've just prevented a big ruckus on stage. It's not for our entourages to get involved!

      People want a big ruckus at press conferences. They want to see all the screaming and shouting and punching.

      But listen, let the two boxers do a fight and enjoy it.

      I had to be professional and say lets step back, let me and him do what we got to do and that's it
