Unbeaten Fury, 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, inspiring millions with a comeback that saw him fighting for the world title within six months of his June 2018 comeback victory over Sefer Seferi in Manchester. The only blemish on his record — a disputed December 2018 draw against Wilder — was avenged with stoppage wins over the American star in February 2020 and October 2021. The Dillian Whyte showdown marks his first bout in London since February 2015.
WBC Interim champion Whyte, 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 long-term rival 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 twice. 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, sending him into retirement, whilst regaining his interim title and No. position. Facts about Dillian Whyte
The undercard features a close friend of Tyson’s, Isaac Lowe (21-1-3, 6KOs), as he goes up against unbeaten prospect Nick Ball (14-0, 7KOs) for the vacant WBC Silver featherweight title. It’s a huge leap up in levels for the Liverpudlian, who trains with Paul Stevenson at the Everton Red Triangle gym alongside Olympian Peter McGrail and fellow Queensberry prospects Andrew Cain and Brad Strand. ‘Westgate Warrior’ Lowe comes into the fight off the back of a defeat to Luis Alberto Lopez in his last fight in December, but has the vaster experience on his side. Ball, however, has the confidence of an unbeaten boxer and the hunger of a rising prospect with something to prove.
Frank Warren: “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,” stated Hall of Fame promoter Frank Warren. “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.”
Bob Arum: “Tyson Fury conquered America, and it is only fitting that he defends the heavyweight championship in a packed Wembley Stadium. Dillian Whyte has called for this fight for years, and while he is a deserving challenger, no heavyweight can match ‘The Gypsy King.’ This is going to be a momentous night of boxing with tens of thousands of fans in attendance at Wembley Stadium.”
Tim Rickson, BBN Editor: “Everything should all be in the favour of Tyson Fury, with his bigger size and strength, his confidence as the unbeaten defending world champion, plus the experience at this level having now had four world championship bouts before. However, Whyte will always have the puncher’s chance with those awkward clubbing left hooks that could land from distance. He can be scrappy due to his aggression and eagerness to land absolutely anything he can, so I can see a lot of holding in this fight, maybe even resulting in cuts for either fighter as they come together so often. If Whyte can knock Tyson down, which I believe is very possible, he has proven to have such incredible recovery abilities that it won’t instantly signal the end of the fight. Wilder floored Fury four times and each time he got back up again. If a huge knockdown in the final round can’t stop him, then who or what can? If Tyson knocks an opponent down, they usually get back up again, but the Kronk Gym have embedded a bigger killer instinct into him, so if he scores a knockdown, I think he could kill the fight off that same round when urged on by his corner. Steward only believes in knockouts and that will be the goal from start to finish to Team Fury. So, in summary, although I believe Tyson has everything going for him to win this fight, although Whyte is a dangerous, unpredictable opponent who could score a knockdown at any time, but I would still pick Fury to win by stoppage. I like Whyte because he is British, but I would hate for him to win this fight.”
