Fury vs Whyte Who Wins
Dillian Whyte finally gets his crack at the WBC heavyweight title on April 23 against champion Tyson Fury. After two consecutive boxing contests against Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury has a new adversary in Dillian Whyte. It’s an all U.K affair as the two British heavyweights take to Wembley in-front of 94.000 record crowd.
This is Fury’s (31-0-1, 22 KOs) second reign as heavyweight champion. He won the WBA, WBO, IBF, and IBO titles from Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 by decision but never defended his titles. Fury slipped into a deep two-year depression but emerged to take the heavyweight division by storm.
Whyte (28-2, 19 KOs) is the WBC interim champion but has been waiting for a shot at the full title for years. His top spot was briefly lost after Alexander Povetkin knocked him out in round 5 in 2020. He gained revenge by stopping Povetkin in 2021 in round 4.
