Fury to fight Whyte at Wembley on 23 April

World heavyweight champion Tyson Fury will meet Dillian Whyte in an all-British fight at Wembley on 23 April.

 
Whyte signed a contract to meet the WBC champion earlier this week just hours before the deadline.

 
Fury has not fought in the UK since August 2018 when he beat Francesco Pianeta in Belfast.

 
He is unbeaten in his pro career with 31 wins and one draw, while 33-year-old Whyte is the mandatory challenger for his WBC belt.

 
It will be Whyte’s first world title opportunity after a long and frustrating wait, while it will be Fury’s UK homecoming after emerging unbeaten through a riveting trilogy against Deontay Wilder.

 
The winner of Fury and Whyte would be well-positioned for an undisputed title fight with Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk, who are still expected to have a rematch for the IBF, WBA and WBO belts.
