Tyson Fury will put his WBC heavyweight title on the line against mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte… but when is the all-British bout?

We’ve not seen the Gypsy King in action since defeating Deontay Wilder via eleventh-round knockout in their thrilling trilogy match last October and this will also be his first fight on UK soil since beating Francesco Pianeta on points in August 2018.

He faces WBC interim heavyweight champ Whyte, who avenged his defeat to Russian Alexander Povetkin on his last appearance in the ring 12 months age and is eager to press his claims as one of the world’s leading heavyweights.

Fury is set to bag a tidy £25m for the bout after the sanctioning body ordered the purse to be split 80-20, and the 33-year-old has indicated this will be his final fight before literally setting sail into the sun.

He said: “This is the final fight of my career, I’m retiring after this, $150m in the bank, healthy, young, I’m gonna buy a massive yacht abroad. I’m retiring, I’m out, this is my final fight, I’m done.”
