5 Things to know about Tyson Fury: Dillian Whyte new opponent

World Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury will face Dillian Whyte, officially confirmed by the World Boxing Council (WBC). Whyte has been waiting almost for four years for a heavyweight title shot, even by setting himself as a mandatory challenger, but no bout materialized. And World Boxing Council (WBC) finally agreed with the British fighter. 

  • Whyte has been installed as a mandatory challenger to Fury. However, in October, Tyson Fury has retained his crown in a challenging knockout victory over Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas.
  • In a recent statement, WBC plans to hold a mandatory bout between WBC World Heavyweight champion Tyson Fury and Mandatory Challenger and WBC interim World Champion Dillian Whyte; WBC orders to negotiate about the rules and regulations of the bout.
  • It is essential for Tyson as he has done his last five fights in the US and now Brixton is back and fighting in the UK. This bout is interesting in the UK as it is available to challenge for WBC belt. Fury is Brit and many fans in the UK and coming back to the country. He will bring 10,000 Brits with him; in fact, American fans have to learn to sing like Brits. 
  • The final date for Fury’s title defense against Whyte is not confirmed, but preparations are there for this year 2022. And it would be Fury’s first bout on British soil since 2018.
  • Moreover, we expect that fight will occur in late February or early March, and the venue would be Wales, Principality Stadium, formerly known as Millenium Stadium. Due to its retractable roof, they will choose the venue as the cool temperature is expecting.
  • If Fury stands victorious against Whyte. It could clear him for a unification bout against Usyk or Joshua later following their rematch. There is also a misconception that Joshua will step aside and allow Fury to fight Usyk in a unification bout; the WBC order can end this chance.
