Strap yourselves in for one of the biggest all-British boxing bouts in history as Fury vs Whyte at Wembley Stadium gets set for lift-off on Saturday 23 April.
WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury puts his belt on the line against WBC interim titlist and mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte with a crowd of up to 90,000 expected to descend on the famous stadium in north London.
The fight is promoted by Queensberry Promotions and Top Rank. Accouncing the fight Hall of Fame promoter Frank Warren said: ‘Tyson Fury coming home to fight under the arch at Wembley Stadium is a fitting reward for the No.1 heavyweight in the world following his exploits across the Atlantic in his epic trilogy against Deontay Wilder. The fact that this mandatory defence of his WBC title comes against another Brit only adds to the occasion. They are two of the biggest characters in British sport and both normally have plenty to say for themselves.
“It is going to be an incredible night and a huge occasion for sport in this country that will capture the imagination of fans right across the world.’
Tyson Fury (31-0-1, 22 KOs), based in Morecambe, has held the lineal heavyweight title since November 28, 2015, the night he ended the nearly decade-long championship run of Wladimir Klitschko. Following over two years of inactivity, he returned to action in June 2018 and is now the WBC/Lineal/Ring Magazine heavyweight champion after his two knockout wins over American Deontay Wilder.
Dillian Whyte (28-2, 19 KOs), who was raised in Brixton, London, earned a shot at Fury with a seven-year run as a world-level heavyweight. Following a seventh-round TKO loss to Anthony Joshua in 2015 — when both were undefeated prospects — Whyte went on an 11-fight winning streak that included triumphs over Joseph Parker, Oscar Rivas, Lucas Browne, and Derek Chisora (2x). His momentum, and mandatory position, was halted when Alexander Povetkin knocked him out with a single left uppercut in August 2020. Whyte exacted revenge in March 2021, knocking out Povetkin in four rounds to regain his interim title.
