Dillian Whyte will try to dethrone Fury in March

British boxer Tyson Fury, the world heavyweight champion in the WBC version, will defend the championship belt against his compatriot Dillian White, and it seems that the approximate date of the fight is finally known. One of the promoters of "Gypsy King", Frank Warren, stated that the fight is planned for March, and the location will most likely be the "Principality" stadium in Cardiff, with a capacity of 75 thousand spectators.

It must be admitted that this is one of the better stadiums, where the atmosphere will surely be at the top level Warren states that the division of income from this spectacle will be 80% in favor of Fury, and 20% in favor of White, although negotiations between the two teams have just begun.

It is clear that Fury is still a bigger name and that most of the cake will belong to him. Still, who wouldn’t want a fight with him? White is also aware of what it would mean to win a match like this A few weeks earlier, the WBC made a decision according to which 33-year-old Dillian White is the next obligatory challenger for Fury, who will have his second belt defense.

Previous fights

The 33-year-old Tyson Fury won the WBC title in February 2020, when he celebrated by knockout against the previous champion Deontay Wilder. A match in which there was a lot of tension, a lot of accusations and everything else, finally got the second episode, where again Fury showed the strength he possesses and easily came to victory Then the boxer from Manchester defended his belt in October 2021, stopping the "Bronze Bomber" again.

Fury has 31 wins (22 KOs) and 1 draw in the professional ring. Dylian White was last in the ring in a professional match in March this year, when he used a technical knockout to avenge the Russian Alexander Povjetkin for the defeat inflicted on him by the "Knight" in August 2020.

After that, a Jamaican-born boxer had to fight in October with the Swede Otto Wallin, but White had to withdraw from that duel due to injury. His score in professional matches is currently 28 wins (19 KOs) and 2 defeats (by Anthony Joshua and Povetkin).

Although Fury is not happy with the opponent he got, this will be a good motivation for White to show that he can do much more than some expect, and winning such a match would be a real surprise and a spectacle. Warren states that the division of income from this spectacle will be 80% in favor of Fury, and 20% in favor of White, although negotiations between the two teams have just begun.
