Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte fight week is finally here. As Thomas Trieber, Master of Ceremonies, likes to say, ‘the time has arrived’.
Tyson Fury will take on mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte in a WBC Heavyweight Championship of the World blockbuster. The highly anticipated bout will take place at London’s Wembley Stadium in front of a hopeful 94,000 fans.

Muhammad Ali defeated Brian London via a third-round KO, shortly after England’s World Cup triumph at Wembley Stadium.
