Tyson Fury puts his WBC belt on the line as Dillian Whyte finally gets his world title shot tonight at Wembley.

There is expected to be 94,000 fans in attendance for the all-British heavyweight clash, as Fury fights in the UK for the first time in almost four years. He last fought on home soil when beating Francesco Pianeta on points in 2018.

Much of that period has been taken up with the Deontay Wilder triology, the last of those coming in October as Fury beat the American for the second time to comprehensively put that rivalry to bed.

All the while, Whyte has been waiting patiently for his opportunity. That almost unravelled when he suffered a heavy knockout defeat to Alexander Povetkin, but he avenged that loss last March and has not been in the ring since.

With no rematch clause in place, a potential unification bout for the winner against either Oleksandr Usyk or Anthony Joshua could be on the cards later in the year. Fury though has insisted in the build-up that he will retire after the fight tonight, whatever the result is.

Also on the card, Tommy Fury, Tyson’s brother, returns to action for the first time since he pulled out of facing Jake Paul at the end of last year. He’ll be hoping to extend his record to 8-0 as he fights Daniel Bocianski in a six-round bout.

Isaac Lowe, who lost for the first time in his last fight against Luis Alberto Lopez, fights Nick Ball for the vacant WBC silver featherweight title.

Tyson Fury’s last fight…

What a fight it was!

Fury took to the ring to fight Deontay Wilder for a third time in October, having controversially drawn the first bout and then won the second.

It was a sensational fight, which saw Wilder knocked down in the third round and Fury then sent to the canvas twice in the fourth.

Wilder was knocked down in the tenth, before a big right hand from Fury a round later sent the American over again and the bout was waved off.

Tommy Fury: I’m more than a Love Islander

Love Islander, social media star, Tyson’s younger brother – Tommy Fury has heard all the dismissive epithets.

And yet the 22-year-old has every confidence he can begin to make a name for himself in the ring starting against Daniel Bocianski on the undercard of his big brother’s heavyweight fight against Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium tonight.

Training with his sibling in the lead-up to his eighth professional fight, Fury Jr is confident he can begin to turn around the doubters.

“Now I’ve been on Love Island, everyone thinks I’m a social media or Instagram star and all that sort of stuff,” he said. “People don’t understand my story and what I’ve been through. They’ve just seen me on TV and gone off on that note.”

“We’re both fat boys”

As it has been all week between the pair, it was amicable at yesterday’s weigh in. The face-to-face started seriously but soon became a light-hearted affair…

Friday’s weigh-in…

Tyson Fury came in lighter than expected as he and Dillian Whyte took to the scales ahead of their huge heavyweight fight at Wembley on Saturday night.

The WBC champion weighed in at 264lbs 13oz, nearly a stone lighter than he was in October when he beat Deontay Wilder for a second time.

That means Fury’s weight advantage over Whyte, who came in at 253lbs and 4oz, is just 11 pounds despite the significant height difference between the pair. Whyte is six pounds heavier than he was when he fought Alexander Povetkin last March.

It was once again respectful between Fury and Whyte went they went face-to-face for the final time, as they exchanged caps and both briefly danced along to the music.

Main event prediction

For the first time in more than two and a half years, Fury will meet someone other than Wilder in the ring and it’s difficult to know what to expect.

The second and third fights in that trilogy saw Fury adopt a far more aggressive style than he has for much of his career, though that ‘Kronk’ influence did at times leave him more vulnerable.

Whyte may well be hoping that the pair do trade in the middle of the ring, as he’s likely to struggle should Fury decide to box and keep his distance. The Gypsy King has come in light for this, suggesting that may well be his focus. Staying within range and working Fury to the body will surely be a significant part of Whyte’s gameplan.

The two fighters have shown they are capable of getting up off the canvas and have impressive chins, so there’s every chance that both will have to come through difficult periods in the bout.

However, Fury has proved impossible to stop so far in his career and even if Whyte gets his opponent in trouble, it’s difficult to see him being able to do enough to finish the job. A stoppage victory for the WBC champion late in a thrilling fight looks to be on the cards.

Fury to win via knockout in round nine.

Tommy Fury and Isaac Lowe on the bill

Also on the card tonight, Tommy Fury, Tyson’s brother, returns to action for the first time since he pulled out of facing Jake Paul at the end of last year due to injury and illness.

He’ll be hoping to extend his record to 8-0 as he fights Daniel Bocianski in a six-round bout.

Isaac Lowe, who lost for the first time last time out against Luis Alberto Lopez, fights Nick Ball for the vacant WBC silver featherweight title as he looks to get things back on track.

Ekow Essuman vs Darren Tetley has been brought forward to take place tonight as well, after Anthony Cacace vs Jonathan Romero was pulled from the card.
