WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury came face-to-face with WBC interim titleholder Dillian Whyte at the conclusion of today’s final press conference across the pond, the second-to-last stop before their 12-round showdown this Sat. (April 23, 2022) in front of nearly 90,000 boxing fans at Wembley Stadium in London, England.
Fury will bank a staggering $32,800,000 purse for this weekend’s pay-per-view (PPV) card, priced at $69.99 for stateside fans (£24.95 for those watching on BT Sport Box Office in U.K.), with Whyte taking home $8,200,000. “The Gypsy King” is currently a -550 betting favorite against +400 for the underdog Whyte.
Fury improved to 31-0-1 with 22 KOs by knocking out longtime rival Deontay Wilder in their Oct. 2021 trilogy in Las Vegas. Whyte (28-2, 19 KOs), meanwhile, recently went on a 12-1 tear, having regained the WBC interim heavyweight title by putting away aging Russian bruiser Alexander Povetkin last March in Gibraltar.
