Tyson Fury vs. Dillian Whyte Opening Odds

British boxing fans are already gearing up to see Tyson Fury defend his WBC and The Ring heavyweight titles against Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium on April 23, 2022. It’s a golden age for British heavyweights, and Fury comes into this fight boasting a 31-0-1 record with 22 knockouts, while Whyte is 28-2 with 19 knockouts to his name. Fury is a hefty favorite as his wins have been much more impressive than what we have seen from former WBC interim heavyweight champion Whyte.

The braggadocious Tyson Fury has backed up his behavior to date. Fury ended Wladimir Klitschko’s reign as the unified heavyweight champion in November 2015, and he has refocused his efforts since taking a long hiatus from the ring. Fury had to give up his titles after not fighting for over 30 months, but he has battled back to show that he is the most fearsome heavyweight in the division.

Fury proved he was better than Deontay Wilder after his first challenge for the WBC heavyweight belt resulted in a draw, as he scored knockout wins over Wilder in his last two fights over the last two years. The Gypsy King has unmatched size and strength at 6’9 with an 85-inch reach, and opponents have had a hard time getting inside on Fury.

Dillian Whyte will be at a significant disadvantage despite being 6’4 with a 78-inch reach. This is the biggest fight to date for Whyte after he rebounded from a knockout loss to Alexander Povetkin two years ago to knock out Povetkin in the fourth round last March. His only other blemish came over six years ago when he lost to then-golden boy Anthony Joshua by seventh round TKO.

There will be plenty of antics in the run-up to this fight in order to sell tickets and draw attention to the event, as Queensberry Promotions broke the bank with a whopping $41 million bid to promote the fight. However, there’s little doubt that Fury is the top heavyweight in the sport currently, and Whyte is a deserving foe after the Wilder trilogy.
