Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte will face each other at Wembley Stadium, London in a WBC heavyweight title match on Saturday, April 23 at 22:00 GMT. Tyson Fury is the reigning WBC heavyweight champion while Dillian Whyte is the WBC Interim Champion. The lead-up to this title fight between the two British Heavyweights has been the outburst of Whyte over the treatment he has received from the Fury camp in the media. Speaking to the BBC, Whyte said he has been treated like a nobody in the lead up to the match-up between the two former buddies.
Bookmakers from Bet365 have Fury at the overwhelming short odds of 1.20. This is the sentiment of the public because of the emphatic manner Fury dispatched Deontay Wilder in his last fight of the Fury/Wilder trilogy in 2020. However, Wilder has the reputation for a strong chin so maybe he might last longer in the ring. The bookmaker has Fury to win by KO, TKO, or Disqualification at 1.72.
