Tyson Fury vs. Dillian Whyte
Wembley Stadium, Wembley, London, England – 23 April 2022
Tyson Fury has vowed that he will be able to accommodate to anything Dillian Whyte has to offer ahead of their huge showdown next weekend.
The massive event at Wembley Stadium in London takes place on Saturday 23 April, as Fury (31-0-1, 22 KOs) defends his WBC heavyweight title against Whyte (28-2, 19 KOs), live on BT Sport Box Office and ESPN PPV.
The two fighters spoke in front of the media on a Zoom call on Thursday, and Fury not only revealed his confidence for the battle with Whyte, but also praised the fans for making the event possible.
Fury said: “A lot of people are underestimating Whyte but not me. I’ve been training since January and I’m feeling good. Dillian is a top five heavyweight for sure. He’s the number one ranked WBC contender, and if he beats me he’s #1, so there is all to play for.
“When the first bell goes, it’s up to Dillian. Whatever he wants to do we’ll accommodate him. We adapt to the situation and environment that we’re in.
“It’s amazing. I’m overwhelmed with the support I’ve had over the last few years, and it’s only fitting to come home and give the British fight fans what they deserve, a big fight at home.
“It’s just over a week away, and I’m sure both camps are looking forward to the fight and will give it everything we’ve got on the night. The fans will be made up with the action we’re going to bring.
“I want to say a massive thank you to everybody who bought a ticket and made the event possible, as without the fans there would be no event.
To sell Wembley out in a few hours was crazy to me. It’s a really happy time for me and my family, not only because of the fight, but for all of these people to show their love in this massive event is fantastic.”
Elsewhere on the card on Saturday, Isaac Lowe is in action, as he takes on Nick Ball for the vacant WBC Silver featherweight title.
