, Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte: Date, UK start time, TV channel, live stream, undercard for HUGE WBC heavyweight title bout

GET your popcorn ready boxing fans because we are entering Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte fight week.

Fury, 33, is the reigning WBC heavyweight champion after back-to-back victories over Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas and now faces Whyte at Wembley in the biggest sporting event of the year so far.

How the fighters compare for the big fight
Fury beat Wilder to retain his WBC belt – but has now been ordered to defend it again

The Gypsy King retained his crown by emphatic knockout back in October last year, with unification against then-champ Anthony Joshua eyed up.

AJ was to ultimately lose his own title defence to Oleksandr Usyk and a rematch was delayed by Usyk’s decision to fight for Ukraine against Russia.

Fury’s attention therefore turned to mandatory challenger Whyte, 34, as he puts his belt on the line once again.

What they said

Tyson Fury has suggested he will retire after his fight with Dillian Whyte, rather than facing the likes of Anthony Joshua or Oleksandr Usky.

The Gypsy King said: “The only thing I can gain is money. So after this fight I’ll have earned over £100million.

“If I can spend that, I don’t deserve any more, do I?

“I know Mike Tyson spent half a billion and Evander Holyfield 400million and all the rest, but I don’t live their big flash lifestyles.

“I live in Morecambe, in Lancashire. It’s cheap there. I don’t have any big habits like I’m gambling tons of money away.

“I don’t do anything. I can never spend the money I’ve got.”

Whyte – who did not appear at the press conference – had previously said about a Fury fight: “Wherever they want the fight, whenever they want the fight, I don’t care.

“I’ve been trying to fight him for a long time. I’ve been ready to fight him for a long time.

“I just want to fight him for the world title now.”
