Tyson Fury will take on Dillian Whyte in front of a crowd of 94,000 at Wembley on Saturday night, hoping to retain his WBC and The Ring heavyweight belts which he took from Deontay WIlder in February 2020. Fury, 33, fights at the UK for the first time since 2018 this weekend in what is a homecoming fight for the so-called ‘Gypsy King’.
He turned pro in 2008 and is 31-1-0, his only draw against Wilder in the first leg of their epic trilogy. He had a busy career, becoming world heavyweight champion in 2015 before a well-documented battle with mental health sidelined him from the sport until his return in 2018 and then regaining his heavyweight crown. .
His record sets him apart as one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world in the sport – meanwhile, Whyte has a record of 28 wins (19 KOs), 0 draws and two losses. Both of his defeats have come against top class opposition with Anthony Joshua and Alexander Povetkin both picking up wins over the Londoner.
