Boxing: Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte fight officially confirmed for April 23 at Wembley

Tyson Fury’s WBC world heavyweight title against  Dillian Whyte has been confirmed to take place on April 23 at Wembley Stadium.

The date and venue of the showdown were officially confirmed on Friday February 25, after protracted talks between the two camps over the purse, and once a reunification shot between the ‘Gypsy King’ and Oleksandr Usyk was finally ruled out.

Promoted by Frank Warren’s Queensberry Promotions and Top Rank, tickets will be on sale exclusively from Ticketmaster at midday on Wednesday, March 2. 

Fury, 33, has only fought once in the past two years, defeating Deontay Wilder in October to claim victory in his trilogy series with the American.
Whyte, meanwhile, beat Alexander Povetkin in his last bout, in March 2021 after suffering a shock second career defeat at the hands of the Russian in their first contest.
Despite winning 28 of his 30 fights and seeing off the likes of Joseph Parker and Derek Chisora, this will be the 33-year-old’s first world title fight.
