After several delays, former sparring partners WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury and WBC interim champion Dillian Whyte are finally on course for a huge clash at Wembley next month.

The bout marks the first time Fury has fought on home soil since his defeat of Sefer Seferi in 2018 and ultimately could be the last time he steps into the ring, meaning much of the pressure is on the Gypsy King’s shoulders.

Here’s all you need to know about the all-British bout.

Tyson Fury v Dillian Whyte: The undercard

So far only WBC International featherweight title holder, Isaac Lowe, has been confirmed to fight on the undercard and his opponent is yet to be decided.

Tyson Fury v Dillian Whyte: The story so far

After his defeat of Deontay Wilder in their trilogy match last year, Fury’s next opponent was thought to be Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk, who sprung a surprise when defeating Anthony Joshua. However, mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte refused to accept stand-aside money, meaning Fury had little choice but to accept his challenge.

The bout was initially scheduled to take place in February, but has been delayed several times due to Whyte’s refusal to accept the terms of the division of the overall fight purse, which was initially set to be split 80-20 in Fury’s favour.

Uncertainties continued to surround the fight after Whyte was absent from the first press conference in early March.

Fury has pulled no punches when it comes to goading his opponent, claiming that the fight will be like watching a “Ferrari racing a Vauxhall Corsa”.

Back in 2012 when Fury was preparing to fight David Haye, Whyte acted as his sparring partner and the Brixton-based boxer was quick to suggest he held the upper hand on those occasions, saying, “I dropped him twice that day” and that he had left Fury “sobbing”.

However, Fury responded saying, “every single time I’ve used him as a punch bag”.

Clearly the relationship between the two fighters has soured since 2012 and with so much on the line, especially for Fury, as he looks to potentially bow out with an unbeaten record as one of the greatest heavyweights of all time, this looks all set up to be a fascinating contest.

Tyson Fury v Dillian Whyte: Latest betting odds

Fury is the ultimate tactician and will be up to all his usual tricks as he bids to take his unbeaten record to an amazing 33 from 33.

The Gypsy King showed both his resilience and his punching power in his last fight against Deontay Wilder. He somehow managed to beat the countdown after twice being sent to the canvas by his rival before beginning to reassert in the middle rounds and then unleashing an attack that KOed Wilder in round 11.

Whyte is unlikely to come in swinging at his opponent as Wilder did, which means Fury will have to use all of his boxing nous to find Whyte’s weak spot.

Fury almost always finds a way to break his opponents down and unsurprisingly he is 1/6 favourite to claim victory, and an 8/11 chance to do so by KO, TKO or DQ.

However, if the fight does go the distance, Fury is also a strong 9/5 favourite to win by judge’s decision.

Whyte has shown in the past that he can trade blows with the best and his compact style could test his opponent in the opening rounds. The Body Snatcher is a 4/1 chance to cause an upset, 5/1 to win by KO, TKO or DQ, but he looks an unlikely winner if things go the distance at 22/1.
