Tyson Fury KO’s Dillian Whyte (Video)
Tyson Fury will put his WBC and The Ring Heavyweight Titles on the line this afternoon when he squares off with Dillian Whyte.
The highly anticipated contest, which is expected to start around 5pm EST, takes place at Wembley Stadium in London.
Fury (31-0-1) will be returning to action for the first time since scoring a thrilling eleventh round knockout win over Deontay Wilder in their trilogy fight this past October. ‘The Gypsy King’ has said that today’s fight against Whyte will be the final bout of his illustrious career.
“I’ve got nothing to prove to anybody, I’m just there to have fun, take in the atmosphere, and enjoy the night. It’s the final farewell. It’s been a long old ride, it’s quite emotional to be honest,” Fury said to a Top Rank correspondent. “All this, the ride of, like, starting as a little kid and wanting to be heavyweight champion, and then to finally be hanging up the gloves. I know nobody believes me because they all think I’m after money or whatever else, there’s only a certain amount of people who know that money don’t mean nothing to me. I’m walking away. I have nothing to prove to nobody.”
Meanwhile, Dillian Whyte (28-2) will be returning to action for the first time since March of 2021, where he captured the interim WBC heavyweight title by avenging his previous loss to Alexander Povetkin.
