Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte: UK ring walk time, how to watch, live stream, undercard, odds
Tyson Fury marks his homecoming to the UK 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 the beginning and ending of a historic rivalry with American Deontay Wilder.
After a controversial draw during their first meeting in 2018, Fury went on to dethrone ‘The Bronze Bomber’ in 2020 before retaining his WBC belt last November.
Fury was set for an all-time classic encounter against longtime rival Anthony Joshua, but the wait for a first British undisputed heavyweight champion since Lennox Lewis continues, with AJ falling to defeat 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 takes on Whyte instead, with Joshua’s rematch against Usyk for the summer.
However, the build-up to one of Britain’s most highly anticipated sporting spectacles in recent memory has taken a bit of a hit, with Fury opting out of social media after their March press conference, while Whyte has remained silent as he chose not to. come days.
Nevertheless, Whyte will finally get his shot at a world title in a truly indispensable watch. And now that the fight is fast approaching, sports post takes you through everything you need to know.

What was said?
When the fight between Fury and Whyte was announced, boxing fans unanimously agreed that the build-up could be just as good, if not better, than the match itself.
That has not turned out to be the case, however, as Fury was mostly silent the entire time and Whyte chose not to show up for the announcement press conference.
Fury has generally still managed to get his fair share of insults, labeling his menacing opponent a “coward” at the presser.
“I have given him a new name, Frillian Whyteknickers – he has shown the white flag today,” he said. ‘He is afraid. The way he goes about not having a face-to-face.
“It’s fear, it’s terror – all of the above. I don’t blame him for not being here!’
“I’m very confident in it,” he continued. ‘I’m not sober, I’m on top of it. There’s no 1% chance I’ll lose the fight – I know I can’t lose.”
Though he insisted he would remain silent until fight week, Fury took to social media earlier this week to update fans on his progress.
Whyte failed to show up at their first official press conference – with Fury taking on an imaginary opponent instead
“Hello guys – Tyson Fury here,” he said in a short clip on Twitter. ‘Just a quick update to let you know that camp is going very well, less than three weeks. Can’t wait to see you all in the big smoke at Wembley Stadium.
‘Dillian Whyte is going to screw up man! I can’t wait, see you all there – all my loyal fans. God bless you all.’
Since Whyte chose to remain silent, his brother, Dean, instead provided an update on how the heavyweight camp is going.
“We’re quietly confident in Dillian’s training,” Dean told the… talkSPORT Boxing YouTube Channel† “He’s under no obligation to do all this media stuff the way they wanted it to. He just cracks on.
“He’s never quiet, he talks somewhere else where you can’t hear him. He is very vocal. All the boys know that he is very loud and vocal.
This morning we got crazy jokes, we have a group. He’s out of his box. But yeah, he’s good, he’s definitely in a good mood.’
Fury vs Whyte: the odds
After proving his credentials again in a third and final blockbuster game against Wilder, it’s no surprise that Fury is the overwhelming favorite to win again on April 23.
Fury is the 1/6 favorite to take the win, 9/4 by decision and 4/6 by stoppage.
Whyte is certainly the underdog, but as he showed in his stunning rematch win over Povetkin last year, the Brixton fighter has an abundance of knockout power.
He stands at 7/2 to emerge victorious, 18/1 by decision and 9/2 by stoppage. A draw is on 25/1.
