Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte: Saturday 23 April on BT Sport Box Office

BT Sport Box Office will show one of the biggest fights in British boxing history when Tyson Fury meets Dillian Whyte at Wembley on Saturday 23 April.

Fury, unbeaten in 32 bouts, has not fought in the UK since August 2018 when he outpointed Francesco Pianeta in Belfast.

Since then, he has reclaimed the WBC belt and taken on Deontay Wilder in a historic trilogy in the US.

Fury’s last outing saw him retain his title with a thrilling 11th-round knockout of the American in Las Vegas.

Whyte is the mandatory challenger to the WBC title and the Londoner last fought when he beat Russian Alexander Povetkin in March 2021.

He was set to face Otto Wallin in October, but the fight was called off after the Briton suffered a shoulder injury.

“There hasn’t been a bigger fight since Lewis-Bruno, an all-British showdown for the WBC heavyweight championship of the world,” said Fury at the announcement press conference.

“I am looking to put on an excellent showcase of knockout boxing in front of the UK fans and then sing a load of songs afterwards! Time to party on down in the Big Smoke!”

“It will be a fantastic night of boxing and will be a sell-out with just under a 100,000 capacity,” added promoter Frank Warren. It will be a special night because you have got the WBC champion, the Lineal champion who has not fought here in nearly four years.”

More details about how to book Fury vs Whyte on BT Sport Box Office will be released soon.
