The clash between Fury and Whyte is scheduled to take place on Saturday, April 23 in front of 94,000 fans at Wembley Stadium.   

Tyson Fury marks his UK homecoming with an all-British blockbuster against Dillian Whyte at a sold out Wembley Stadium later this month.

The Gypsy King last fought on British soil in 2018, since starting and ending a historic rivalry with American Deontay Wilder.

Following a controversial draw in their first encounter back in 2018, Fury then dethroned ‘The Bronze Bomber’ in 2020 before retaining his WBC belt in November last year. 

Fury had been set for an all-time classic encounter against long-time rival Anthony Joshua, but the wait for a first British undisputed heavyweight champion since Lennox Lewis continues, with AJ falling to defeat against Oleksandr Usyk. 

There were negotiations for both Joshua and Whyte to step aside, allowing Fury and Usyk to go head-to-head, but they broke down at the last hour. Fury instead takes on Whyte, with Joshua’s rematch against Usyk set for the summer. 

The build-up to one of Britain’s most eagerly-anticipated sporting spectacles in recent memory has somewhat taken a hit, with Fury largely staying away from social media, while Whyte has mostly remained silent throughout.   

Whyte has remained largely silent throughout the build-up, opting out of attending their announcement press conference

That silence was broken as the pair engaged in a conference call earlier in the week, though they are yet to come face-to-face.
