One of Tyson Fury's former opponents exposed his real name, he said he changed it to sound "harder"

One of Tyson Fury’s former opponents has claimed that the boxer changed his name to sound ‘harder’.

On Saturday night, Fury will enter the ring in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia to fight former UFC champion Francis Ngannou.

The much-anticipated bout is yet another crossover boxing fight as the world of MMA enters boxing again.

Ahead of the fight, Fury is the heavy favourite to clinch victory and preserve his unbeaten record.

One of Fury’s former opponents, Dillian Whyte has claimed that he switched his names around to make himself sound harder.

Whyte previously said to The Sun: “My real name is Dillian. I know his real name is Luke.

“He changed it to Tyson to make himself sound harder. People can have a little look around on the internet and see for themselves.”

He added: “In boxing, the name Tyson is a lot more sellable than Luke. A lot of what Tyson does and says is a game, you can never take anything he says seriously or at face value.

“How can you trust a man who doesn’t even use his own name?”

Whyte and Fury fought back in 2022 at Wembley, with Fury taking the win.

Previously, Whyte has claimed he is the real Gypsy King instead of Fury.

He said: “I will fight anyone, anywhere and that is why I am the real Gypsy King and I have even got my flat cap to prove it. Tyson Fury likes to tell people that he is but let’s see.

“Fury had a privileged upbringing, went to a posh school in an expensive area and lives in a lovely house. What kind of gypsy is he?”
