Anticipation is growing for the all-British heavyweight boxing bout between Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte set to take place this evening.
The bout is being touted as one of the biggest boxing events of the year and will see the unbeaten Fury back in action for the first time since he knocked out American rival Deontay Wilder in October of last year.
The win brought his record against the Bronze Bomber to two wins and one draw across the span of an epic trilogy of meetings and his overall career record now stands at 31 wins and one draw in 32 fights.
Whyte has been out of action since March 2021, when the Jamaican-born heavyweight beat Alexander Povetkin by TKO, avenging his loss to the Russian from August of the previous year.
There had been some expectation that Fury could look to fight Ukrainian star Oleksandr Usyk, who currently holds the unified WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight titles after defeating Anthony Joshua in September, in his next outing.
But instead, the 33-year-old will defend his belt against Whyte, who has 28 wins and two defeats from his 30 career bouts.
Here is everything you need to know about the upcoming fight including where it is taking place, when and what both fighters have said in the build up:

What have Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte said ahead of the fight?
The press conference was held on Thursday, April 14th 2022 over Zoom and is still available to watch on YouTube through the Top Rank Boxing YouTube channel.
Due to the nature of the conference, Tyson Fury spoke to the media first and Whyte then followed, meaning there were no heated exchanges between the two fighters.
Whyte has since spoken to the BBC’s Ade Adedoyin on the 5 Live Boxing podcast saying Don’t treat me like a nobody.
When asked if he was worried, Whyte said: “No I’m not worried, this is his biggest pay-day to date. His tickets are selling because he’s fighting me.
“Everyone sees him as a white 6”9 Muhammad Ali, Tyson, Joe Frazier mix that’s reborn but I don’t see him as that, I just see him as potential prey.
“I’m a warrior, I’ve come to fight. I come to leave it all on the line, I’m used to taking risks.
“I’ve been to fight where I’m the underdog and been written off, so I’ve gone through the mill already.”
