TYSON FURY and Dillian Whyte were all laughs during their final press conference, but poker faces will be on show at Wembley this weekend.

Fury 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.

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.

Fury said as the fight was announced: “I’m coming home baby. Get ready for the biggest British dust-up since Lennox Lewis vs Frank Bruno. History in the making.”

What are Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte’s records?

Tyson Fury comes into this fight with a record of 31-0-1.

The Gypsy King has never been beaten, which allowed him to retain the title of lineal champion even when he was stripped of his belts in 2015 for failing to fight Wladimir Klitschko in a rematch.

The one fight Fury failed to win was his first bout against Deontay Wilder in 2018, when he dominated the fight before being knocked down in the 12th round and narrowly beating the count.

Judges scored that fight a draw, though many felt Fury had won.

However, Fury left judges in no doubt as to the result in his second and third fights against Wilder, stopping the American in the 7th and 11th rounds in 2020 and 2021 respectively.

Dillian Whyte’s record is 28-2.

The Body Snatcher suffered his first defeat in 2015 when he was stopped by Anthony Joshua.

Whyte was then on the end of a shock fifth round stoppage against Alexander Povetkin in 2020.

But he would go on to avenge this defeat in Gibraltar a year later, stopping the Russian in the fourth.
