WEMBLEY STADIUM, LONDON — Tyson Fury will make his triumphant homecoming in front of a record crowd of on Saturday night, when he defends his WBC heavyweight title against Dillian Whyte.
Fury (31-0-1) has queried each of his former five bouts in the United States, including his inconceivable trio against Deontay Wilder.
Fellow Briton Whyte (28-2) has been ranked as the WBC’sNo. 1 rival since November 2017 and had to perilously bide his time for this occasion, redressing his shock knockout loss to Alexander Povetkin in his former spin.
Tyson Furyvs. Dillian Whyte live results, updates
p.m. BST/ 205p.m. ET Tommy Fury is gloved and ready to go, getting some final instructions from his father John, who hasn’t been short of giving anyone his opinion this week. Guess there is no need to stop now.
700p.m. BST/ 200p.m. ET As is customary with a big heavyweight bout, there is been plenitude of conspiracy over how each man sloped the scales history. At 18st 12 lbs, Fury was lighter than his former two jaunts against Wilder-does this mean he is ready to dance again? Whyte came in heavier than his rematch against Alexander Povetkin at 18st 1 lbs- presumably an judicious strategy as he prepares to deal with having 6ft 9ins of Gypsy King leaning on him for portions of this evening. Fury was suitable to do enough much what he wanted with Deontay Wilder over near; Whyte promises to be a veritably different proposition in that regard.
640p.m. BST/ 140p.m. ET Barney-Smith eased to a points win and we’ll soon have the first spin this evening for one of the Fury clan, with Tommy Fury in action at light-heavyweight against Daniel Bocianski. We have been joined in the media seats by former Tyson Fury opponent Otto Wallin, who resentfully reported he would formerly been mistaken for former Fury opponent Tom Schwarz. It does not sound like it was the first time!
620p.m. BST/ 120p.m. ET The punters are formerly filing into Wembley. Tonight’s crowd will be a European record for a boxing event. The undercard is underway, with teenage superheavyweight prospect Royston Barney-Smith enjoying his alternate drill in the paid species.
