Tyson Fury v Dillian Whyte

Professional Boxing Match

Saturday, 23 April 2022
Two former sparring partners will go head-to-head when Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte battle it out for the WBC and The Ring heavyweight titles at Wembley Stadium on April 23.
The duo trained together earlier in their careers, with Fury going on to become a two-time world heavyweight champion, while Whyte will be challenging for his first world title.
Whyte has been described as a "tremendous puncher" by Fury's trainer SugarHill Steward, after knocking out seven of his 30 opponents and winning another 13 fights by technical knockout.
However, the Gypsy King has more than just punching power in his bag; an unpredictable style and a good use of footwork make him a nightmare to fight against.
Fury has landed four knockout blows in his 32 fights and scored a further 13 victories by TKO to remain undefeated in his professional career.

Steward claims that the Jamaica-born Brit has a chance of being crowned the new champion, but warned that he faces the "knockout king", who dethroned the fellow heavy hitters Wladimir Klitschko and Deontay Wilder.
"Yeah, Dillian Whyte has a chance. He can punch, he's a tremendous puncher. He's almost got as many knockouts as Tyson Fury. The only real difference if I'm really being honest is Tyson Fury is the knockout king," he told BoyleSports Boxing.
"He dethroned the previous knockout king, so that makes Tyson legitimately the knockout king. He's the big puncher in boxing now, the same way he dethroned Wladimir Klitschko, he dethroned Deontay Wilder by knocking him out - giving him a taste of his own medicine - twice. 
"That makes Tyson legitimately, factually the biggest puncher in boxing. You can't become the biggest puncher in boxing if you don't take out the bigger puncher."
