Fury vs Whyte Stats & Facts (Pre-fight)

It's LINEAL: At-stake will be Fury's lineal heavyweight championship i.e. the "true title." The combatants will be fighting for the heavyweight crown once held by Jack Johnson, Jack Dempsey, Joe Louis, Rocky Marciano, Wladimir Klitschko, and Muhammad Ali.

Record: Promoter Frank Warren won the rights to the fight with a record $41,025,000 bid.

Broadcast: The bout, an ESPN pay-per-view in the United States, is expected to sell out the 90,000-seat Wembley Stadium.

Fury vs Whyte purse: Fury, the champion, will earn $29,538,000. Whyte, the WBC's longtime No. 1 contender, will make $7,384,500. A bonus of $4,102,500 will go to the winner, 10% of the winning bid, per WBC rules.

Not Enough Mulah?: Even with a career-high payday and guaranteed title shot, Whyte seems unhappy with his pay and demanded more.

Longtime contender: Whyte was the WBC's No. 1 contender for more than 1,000 days prior to losing to Alexander Povetkin in August 2020. Whyte avenged the loss by impressively dispatching Povetkin in March 2021 to regain his status as the WBC's No. 1 contender.

Future: Should Fury defeat Whyte, he could face the winner of the rematch between Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua, for the undisputed heavyweight championship.

Wait, what?  Fury suggested this will be his retirement fight, insisting he wants a career in WWE and acting.

Fury vs Whyte odds: As of March 21, Fury remains a rough -670 favorite while Whyte is about a +500 underdog. Hence, a successful $1,000 bet on Fury would net $ 149.25 while the same successful wager on Whyte would garner $5,500.

Odds tidbit: Fury was the underdog in his first two fights with Deontay Wilder. The first bout was scored a draw and Fury KO'd his foe in dominating fashion in their first rematch.

Odds tidbit: Whyte is about as much of an underdog as John Ruiz when he shocked the world to defeat Anthony Joshua in their first bout.

A-Side: Fury will enter as the A-side and a popular champion. Most rounds that are remotely close will be awarded to him.

The body: Look for Whyte to go to Fury's body early and often, looking to takeaway Fury's foot movement in the mid to latter rounds. Dillian has formidable power and Fury can be hurt. Whyte will have to use his timing to work his way inside and land hard leather.

The edge: Most experts see Fury with the edge in overall boxing skills, speed, and movement. Fury will try to create angles and befuddle Whyte with stinging jabs and powershots. Don't expect Tyson to load up much early. He'll look to break down Dillian, physically and psychologically, as the fight continues. If a KO comes, it comes. If it doesn't, Fury will be content to outclass the challenger en route to a comfortable points win.

Consensus: Odds are very long Whyte will win a decision. To win, he's likely going to have to stop the champion inside the distance, or score several knockdowns should it go the full 12.
