Frank Warren has today announced one of the biggest all-British heavyweight fights of all time when Tyson Fury meets Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium on 23rd April. The British pair will step out in front of 80,000 fans and a massive worldwide tv audience as Whyte attempts to dethrone the unbeaten Fury. The rivals will face-off at the English football national stadium, which will be Fury’s first fight in the UK since outpointing Francesco Pianeta in Belfast nearly four years ago.
Fury has fought exclusively in the United States since then, signing a lucrative promotional deal with Bob Arum’s Top Rank. Fury stopped Deontay Wilder in February 2020 in Las Vegas. Then Fury returned to LA seven months later to retain his world title in an epic trilogy contest against the American, who was knocked out in the 11th round of a ferocious fight featuring five knockdowns, Wilder hitting the deck three times, whilst Fury was floored twice,
Dillian Whyte has not fought since last March when he avenged a surprise loss to Russian veteran Alexander Povetkin in Gibraltar to once more become the WBC’s number one ranked contender.
