In what he claims will be the final fight of his 14-year career, Tyson Fury will defend his WBC and lineal heavyweight titles on Saturday against interim champion Dillian Whyte in London.
Few, of course, actually believe the 33-year-old Fury (31-0-1, 22 KOs) will walk away for good, regardless of the outcome. Still, the event is big enough (ESPN+ PPV, 2 p.m. ET) to warrant the attention of the entire sporting world as the two hulking heavyweights square off in their home country in front of a U.K. record crowd of 94,000 at Wembley Stadium.
The fight will mark the first time Fury is fighting anyone else other than former champion Deontay Wilder since 2019. It will also mark the first time Fury returns to fight in the U.K. since a 2018 win over Francesco Pianeta in Northern Ireland.
"Dillian Whyte is a good fighter," Fury said at Wednesday's final press conference. "He is a good, strong, solid man. He's big, he's strong [and] he's tough. He's game, he's got good power. He has knocked out a lot of men. He has had a good learning career, as well. He's got a lot of experience in the fight game. He's definitely a man that needs a lot of respect.

Who would have thought it?” Tyson Fury asked, almost incredulous. “Even we didn’t think we’d be doing 90-odd thousand at Wembley.”
Such is the grandeur of Saturday’s WBC world heavyweight title fight against Dillian Whyte, set against the backdrop of a record-breaking 94,000 fans at Wembley Stadium, that even Fury himself is struggling to process the enormity of the occasion.
The bout will set the record for the largest attendance for a fight in the 21st century and the largest in Europe – quite the stage for these two British boxers.
In recent years, the build up to certain heavyweight bouts has been dominated by acrimony between the opposing fighters, but this one is altogether different.
