Tyson Fury vs. Dillian Whyte Targeted For April

After weeks of laborious negotiations, undefeated WBC and The Ring heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte are officially set for a matchup.

Queensbury Promotion headman Frank Warren has won the rights to the Fury-Whyte bout, after bidding $41 million to beat out Matchroom Boxing Chairman Eddie Hearn's $32 million offer to promote the fight. The WBC has ruled a 70-10 split of the $41 million between Fury and Whyte that favors the undefeated champion, with the additional 10 percent kept as a winner's bonus of $4.1 million. It will net Fury $29.5 million and Whyte $7.4 million for the WBC heavyweight title clash. The fight will air on ESPN PPV in America and BT Sport PPV in the UK.

World Boxing News' Dan Rafael also reported that the targeted date for the matchup currently is April 23 in the United Kingdom, but there isn't an official venue yet decided for it. Fury is 31-0-1 as a pro and is coming off of an eleventh-round KO victory over former WBC heavyweight champion, Deontay Wilder, in their trilogy bout back in October 2021. Whyte meanwhile is 28-2 as a pro respectively and is 12-1 in his last 13 fights, most recently defeating Alexander Povetkin to become the interim WBC heavyweight champion, via a fourth-round TKO in their rematch back in March of last year.
