Get ready for an epic showdown: Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte face off - date, venue, and TV channel details revealed!
All focus is on the Wembley Stadium this evening as Tyson Fury goes head-to-head with Dillian Whyte before an unprecedented British audience. The two fighters have a combined weight of 37 stones for the highly anticipated WBC heavyweight title bout. Fury is the reigning champion, having defeated Deontay Wilder twice in Las Vegas. Now, he is pitting his skills against Whyte in what is expected to be the biggest sporting event of the year thus far. Fury secured his title retention in a convincing knockout victory over Wilder in October last year, setting his sights on a unification match with Anthony Joshua shortly thereafter. However, Usyk's decision to fight for Ukraine against Russia delayed a rematch between the two champs, prompting Fury to take on mandatory challenger Whyte. "I'm coming home baby. Get ready for the biggest British dust-up since Lennox Lewis vs Frank Bruno. History in the making," Fury said ahead of the fight's announcement. For exclusive radio coverage, tune in to talkSPORT, with live coverage beginning at 7:30 pm.
Last week, on Twitter, Whyte exclaimed, "I am primed and pumped for this! Looking forward to seeing all of you on April 23rd at Wembley Stadium. Let's get it started!" For his participation, Whyte will bring home approximately £6 million, while Fury is set to earn a significantly heftier £23.5 million.

Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte's Records
Tyson Fury heads into this battle with an impressive record of 31-0-1.
The Gypsy King has never been defeated, even maintaining his title as the lineal champion even after he was stripped of his belts in 2015 for not facing Wladimir Klitschko for a rematch.
Fury's first fight against Deontay Wilder in 2018 was the only match he didn't win, despite mostly dominating the fight. Fury was knocked down in the 12th round and just barely beat the count, resulting in judges scoring the fight as a draw - though many felt Fury had won.
But for Fury, there was no debate in the subsequent matches, winning decisively against Wilder in the 7th and 11th rounds in 2020 and 2021 respectively.
Dillian Whyte boasts a record of 28-2.
The Body Snatcher's first defeat came in 2015 when Anthony Joshua stopped him in his tracks.
In 2020, Whyte was unexpectedly stopped in the fifth round in a match against Alexander Povetkin; fortunately he was able to avenge this loss a year later in Gibraltar, stopping Povetkin in the fourth.
