Is Fury vs Whyte the fight we’ve actually all been waiting for?

Boxing promoters love conjecture, intrigue, and speculation – that’s what sells pay per view packages and puts bums on seats.

However, the circus surrounding Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury over the past few years has been hugely frustrating for boxing fans all around the world and it now looks as if a meeting between the two men may not happen at all.

Thankfully, the Heavyweight division is packed with exciting fighters, all ready to go out and put on a show and very few enjoy a scrap as much as Dillian Whyte.

The Londoner is known for his devastating punching power and fears absolutely nobody and with Anthony Joshua and his camp seemingly not too keen on taking on Tyson Fury, Whyte is once again the opportunist, looking to take any chance given to him.

Early speculation suggests that Fury vs Whyte could take place in April 2022, with both men having used social media in recent weeks to show the world the tip-top shape they are both in.

As yet, the venue for the fight remains unconfirmed, with both Wembley Stadium and the London Olympic Stadium believed to be on the list of potential hosts.

Regardless of when and where the fight happens, it promises to be an absolute classic between two mavericks of the boxing world, who will both relish the chance to put on a show for the boxing fraternity.

Current WBC Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury is very much the man to beat in the division and his reputation goes before him.

Having battled plenty of problems outside of the ring, Fury has come back from the brink to capture the imagination of the British public, making him one of the most popular sports stars in the country.

In the ring is where he does his main business though, with his thrilling trilogy win over Deontay Wilder putting him on the map and with Fury unbeaten in his 32 professional fights, he could take some stopping here.

At -588, Fury is the clear favourite with the bookmakers at bet365 Canada for this one and he will be out to prove a point from the off against the dangerous Whyte.

For Dillian Whyte, this fight presents a superb opportunity to go toe to toe with the best in the business.

Whyte has earned this opportunity, as the current WBC interim champion – making him the number one contender in the division and Fury has obliged by agreeing to take the fight.

The ‘Body Snatcher’ has an impressive record of his own, with only 2 defeats on his record from 30 fights, with the first loss of his career coming at the hands of Anthony Joshua and the second to Russian Alexander Povetkin, a result he managed to reverse when the pair met 6 months later.

Known for his punching power, Whyte has the potential to hurt anybody on his day and whilst it certainly won’t be easy for the ‘Villain’ to catch the elusive Fury, he will fancy his chances of causing some damage if he lands a big punch or two.

Coming in at +500, the bookmakers clearly see Whyte as the outsider for this one but with both men possessing plenty of punching power, anything could happen when these two genuine stars of British boxing do battle.
