Last week, the famous soccer stadium played host to the FA Cup semifinals. Today (Apr. 23), Wembley is home to heavyweight championship boxing in an all-British dust-up. Tyson Fury (31-0-1, 22 KOs) is back in England after twice defeating Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas to win and defend his WBC heavyweight title, and his opponent is mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte (28-2, 19 KOs), who’s getting the first title shot of his career.
Fury substantially raised his profile with his rivalry with Wilder, which he took 2-0-1 and won both fights by knockout while surviving four knockdowns along the way. ‘The Gypsy King’ has indicated that today is the end of his career, which has had its ups and downs and controversies that persist even now, but has no doubt been a successful one overall. Fury says a lot of things so perhaps he’ll change his mind. As for Whyte, he’s been among the top heavyweights in the division for years, with his only losses coming against Anthony Joshua and Alexander Povetkin. He avenged the shock Povetkin loss with a TKO win in their 2021 rematch, and this is his golden opportunity to shock the world and finally become a world champion.
