Huge title fight added late to Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte undercard with Ekow Essuman taking on Darren Tetley

THE undercard of Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte will now host a title fight on Saturday night.

British and Commonwealth welterweight champion Ekow Essuman will take on Darren Tetley in the second defence of his belts.

Ekow Essuman will defend his British and Commonwealth welterweight titles for a second time against Darren Tetley

Brit Tetley boasts a 21-2 record
The bout was a late addition to the Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte undercard

Essuman, 33, won the two belts in July 2021 after defeating fellow Brit Chris Jenkins at Wembley Arena.

So fighting at Wembley stadium is a big upgrade for Essuman who has enjoyed a meteoric rise since fighting in hotels as recently as 2019.

He is now 16-0 after beating Danny Ball in October and will fancy his chances against 21-2 Tetley, 28.

The bout was announced last-minute after Anthony Cacace vs Jonathan Romero was called off due to the latter’s visa failing to come through.
