“Tyson Fury, who is returning home to fight under the arch at Wembley Stadium, is an appropriate award for the world’s No. 1 heavyweight after his exploits across the Atlantic in his epic trilogy against Deontay Wilder,” said Hall of Fame promoter Frank Warren. “The fact that this mandatory WBC title defense goes against another Briton only adds to the occasion. They are two of the greatest characters in British sport, and both usually have something to say for themselves.
“It will be an incredible night and a great occasion for sports in this country that will capture the imagination of fans around the world.”
Bob Arum, chairman of Top Rank, added: “Tyson Fury has conquered America and it is quite appropriate that he is defending the heavyweight championship at the packed Wembley Stadium. Dillian White has called for this fight for years, and although he is a worthy contender, no heavyweight can compare to the “Gypsy King”. It will be a significant boxing night with tens of thousands of fans attending Wembley Stadium.
Fury (31-0-1, 22 KOs), based in Morecambe, holds the heavyweight title since November 28, 2015, the night he finished Wladimir Klitschko’s nearly decade-long championship series. After two years of inactivity, he returned to action in June 2018, inspiring millions with a return, as a result of which he fought for the world title for six months after his victory in June 2018 over Sefer Sefer in Manchester. The only flaw in his record – a controversial draw against Wilder in December 2018 – was avenged by victories with breaks over the American star in February 2020 and October 2021. Dillian White’s meeting was his first bout in London since February 2015.
White (28-2, 19 KOs), who grew up in Brixton, London, earned a Fury fight in seven years as a world heavyweight. After losing by technical knockout in the seventh round to Anthony Joshua in 2015 – when both were unbeaten prospects – White continued a series of 11 victorious fights that included triumphs over Joseph Parker, Oscar Rivas, Lucas Brown and Derek Chisora (2 times). His momentum and binding stance were stopped when Alexander Povetkin knocked him out with one left uppercut in August 2020. White retaliated in March 2021 by knocking out Povetkin in four rounds to regain the interim title.
