Fury was then out of boxing for almost three years before making his comeback with a victory over Sefer Seferi in June 2018.

Another win over Francesco Pianeta followed before his thrilling draw with Wilder in their first encounter.

Fury then beat German Tom Schwarz in Las Vegas before facing Sweden’s Otto Wallin.

In his last fight over a year ago, Fury reclaimed his place at the top of boxing’s elite with a perfect display to win the WBC heavyweight crown from Wilder.

He then beat the American again last October to set up the fight with Whyte.
