But before the fight gets underway on Saturday, let us bring you up to speed with all the key information ahead of Fury vs Whyte. Read on to find out more.

What time is Fury vs Whyte in the UK?

Live coverage of Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte begins at around 6pm on Saturday 23 April on BT Sport Box Office with the first hour of build-up and fights available for free to BT Sport subscribers before box office encryption begins at 7pm.

Ring walks for the main event are expected any time between 9.45pm and 10.15pm - although the unpredictable nature of live boxing means this could also be subject to change.

When is Fury vs Whyte?

Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte will take place on St George's Day - April 23 - setting the stage perfectly for a domestic showdown pitting Britain's top two heavyweights against one another at one of the country's most iconic venues.

Where is Fury vs Whyte taking place?

The fight is set to go down at Wembley Stadium in north west London - the home of the England national football team and the site of many historic boxing nights.

Anthony Joshua's memorable war against Wladimir Klitschko lit up the national stadium in 2017 and before that it was Carl Froch vs George Groves II that brought boxing to the masses at the incredible stadium.

What is on the line?

Tyson Fury will make the second defence of his WBC heavyweight belt having snatched the coveted green-and-gold strap from Deontay Wilder's custody during one of the greatest heavyweight trilogies of all time.

Dillian Whyte will be hoping he can be the man to inflict the first defeat of Fury's career having previously spent more than 1000 days ranked as the WBC's number one contender.

Who will the winner fight next?

Much of that depends on what happens in the other titanic heavyweight clash happening later this year when Oleksandr Usyk rematches Anthony Joshua for the WBA, IBF and WBO world titles.

Usyk defeated Joshua in convincing fashion when the pair last met to snatch Joshua's three world titles away from him at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in September.

If the Ukrainian repeats the feat a second time, it will set up the mouthwatering prospect of an undisputed heavyweight unification with all four belts on the line against the winner of Fury vs Whyte.
