Dillian Whyte: 28-2
Tyson Fury: 31-0-1

After returning to the top of the heavyweight division with his recent back-to-back defeats over Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury will face a new opponent for the first time in almost three years when he steps into the ring to face off against Dillian Whyte. Wilder emerged as the biggest threat to hand Fury his first-ever loss as a pro, battling the “The Gypsy King” to a split draw in their first meeting back in December 2018. However, Wilder proved to be no match for the 6’, 9” Englishman, who followed up with an impressive seventh-round TKO win to claim the WBC and The Ring titles in their first rematch, and ended the trilogy with a stunning KO win last fall.

Overall, Fury has finished opponents in 22 of his 31 career victories, including three of his past four visits to the squared circle. However, the 33-year-old has also demonstrated his ability to go the distance. In addition to seeing his third clash with Wilder extend into the 11th round, has seen four of his past eight overall contests eventually get decided by the judges, including his 12-round unanimous decision win over Ukraine’s Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 that earned him the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, IBO, and The Ring heavyweight titles.


OVER 9.5 rounds

With both Fury and Whyte proven capable of going the distance, look for their battle for the WBC heavyweight title to go at least nine full rounds



Whyte has Earned his Title Shot

After twice winning the WBC interim heavyweight title over the past three years, Dillian Whyte finally gets his shot at the undisputed title when he faces off against Fury at Wembley Stadium. The 33-year-old Jamaican enjoyed a steady rise up the heavyweight rankings while winning 27 of his first 28 fights. Whyte also demonstrated impressive character while rebounding to reclaim the interim crown he lost to Povetkin in their first clash in August 2020.

Indeed, Whyte’s recent win over Povetkin may be the most impressive of his career. After establishing himself as a power puncher while finishing opponents in 12 straight contests early in his career, “The Body Snatcher” has also shown his ability to go deep, with six of his 10 battles prior to his first date with Povetkin getting decided by the judges. However, his recent win over Povetkin proved to be his most decisive victory since he knocked out a badly overmatched Malcom Tann in 2017.
