Tyson Fury’s next fight – Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte Date & Time

Tyson Fury’s next fight will be the second defense of the belt he won against Deontay Wilder in 2020. Dillian Whyte is the mandatory challenger and arrives with a record of 28 wins (19 KOs) and 2 defeats from 30 fights. Saturday will be his first attempt to win a world title.

Tyson Fury defends his WBC world heavyweight title at Wembley Stadium in London on Saturday, April 23. With a full undercard scheduled to start at 1:00 pm ET, the ring walks for the main event are expected to begin just after 5:00 pm ET. 

Fury vs Whyte: How to Watch & Live Stream Info

In the US, ESPN have the exclusive streaming and broadcasting rights to the Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte fight. The preliminary card will air live on ESPN+ starting at 1:00 pm ET with the main fight card switching over to ESPN+ pay-per-view and will begin at 2:00 pm ET.

Tyson Fury Record – 31-0-1

Tyson Fury, the undisputed, undefeated heavyweight champion of the world boasts a record of 31 wins, 22 by KO and one draw, the controversial draw vs Deontay Wilder that shook the boxing world back in 2018. Fury has stopped Wilder twice since, and arrives here in the form of his life, for what could be his final dance in the ring.

Dillian Whyte Record – 28-2-0

Dillian Whyte, perhaps a lesser known fighter to fight fans, has a solid record of his own and shouldn’t be overlooked here. With 28 wins (19 KOs) and 2 defeats from 30 fights, with those two defeats coming against world class opposition in Anthony Joshua and Alexander Povetkin, he’ll be no push over for the Gypsy King. Whyte avenged his defeat to Povetkin last time and will be looking to shock the world on Saturday night. 

Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte odds

Odds available with FanDuel Sportsbook at time of publishing.

Fury is the huge favorite to successfully defend the title and is -490 on the money line to win the fight. Whyte is +390 to pull off an upset and become the new WBC heavyweight champion and a tie is priced at +2000. 

A Fury win by KO/TKO is -135, while the champion is +240 to win by points or decision.  A points or decision win for Whyte is +2000 and a KO/TKO victory for ‘The Body Snatcher’ is +480.

Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte fight analysis

This clash between two British heavyweights is an intriguing match-up and may well be closer than the odds suggest.  Whyte has had to wait patiently for his first shot at a world title  and has finally been handed a chance after Anthony Joshua’s loss to Oleksandr Usyk last year, which ended any hopes of a unification clash as ‘AJ’ opted to exercise a rematch clause rather than step aside to let Fury face Usyk.

Fury is the overwhelming favorite to defend the title and maintain his near-perfect record, having managed 31 wins (22 KOs) and one draw in a 32-fight career. Fury enters this clash on the back of two stoppage wins over Deontay Wilder, the only opponent he has faced since a win over Otto Walin in September 2019. Indeed, it could be argued that Wilder is the only top class opponent the ‘Gypsy King’ has fought since his sensational win over Wladimir Klitschko way back in 2015 – while Whyte has had a hard road to this point.

Whyte was last seen avenging a loss to veteran Russian Alexander Povetkin in March 21.  The 34-year-old claimed a fourth round stoppage against Povetkin, who somehow survived two fourth round knockdowns before stopping Whyte in the fifth in their first meeting.  The Brixton native also has wins over former WBO champion Joseph Parker and former world title challenger Dereck Chisora (twice) on his CV. The ‘Body Snatcher’ came up against Joshua earlier in his career, losing in the seventh round, and is used to being involved in big fights despite never challenging for a world title before.

Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte prediction & best bet: Fury to win by points or decision (+240)

The fact that both of Whyte’s losses have been stoppages is perhaps why the champion is favored to end this contest inside the distance, but he may need the judges to keep his title on Saturday. The champion will probably use his superior reach, speed and footwork to wear Whyte down and if the fight follows this pattern, a Fury win on points looks like a good option.
