Tyson Fury Vs. Dillian Whyte PPV Undercard Live Results, Highlights: Nick Ball Earns WBC Title Over A Bloodied Isaac Lowe

When speaking in terms of the greatest heavyweight champions in boxing’s rich history, at this point, no one can deny that Tyson “The Gypsy King” Fury’s legacy has secured him a place in the conversation. Tonight, in front of 94,000 fans under the bright lights of Wembley Stadium in London, Fury will look to add another chapter to his legacy while facing fellow countryman, Dillian “The Body Snatcher” Whyte.

In what he claims will be his final match as a professional boxer, Fury will put his WBC and Ring Magazine titles on the line, while hoping to add the 32nd win to his undefeated record. With 19 knockouts, and 28 overall wins, Dillian Whyte has held the WBC interim heavyweight title since March 2021, but has his sights set on using his power to dethrone Tyson Fury and put on a show for the great fans of England.

In Tyson Fury’s 14-year career, he has defeated the best fighters that the heavyweight division has to offer, and has achieved milestones such as ending the decade long rein of the former heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko. More recently, Fury settled one of the most entertaining rivalries in the history of heavyweight boxing, when he defeated the former championship power-puncher Deontay Wilder by knocking him out cold in the 11th round. This back-and-forth match back in October served as the third match in the Fury verses Wilder series and was named 2021’s fight of the year.

With the dramatic end to the Wilder trilogy, and the way he was able to shut down the game of the great Wladimir Klitschko, Tyson Fury feels he has achieved everything that he was after in professional boxing. With that in mind, it makes sense for this to be his farewell match, in his home country and against a fellow British fighter. But many believe his retirement plans will not last long, and he will be itching to return to the ring after a short break.

Dillian “The Body Snatcher” Whyte is no stranger to stiff heavyweight competition, with powerful knockout victories over Dereck Chisora and Alexander Povetkin. Whyte suffered his first loss to the right hand of Anthony Joshua in an all-British main event back in 2015 at the O2 Arena in Greenwich. From there, he would win 12 of his next 13 fights, with the only defeat coming by way of a fifth-round knockout from his first meeting with Alexander Povetkin, a defeat which he would avenge in dramatic fashion less than one year later.

It is said that the key to victory for Dillian Whyte in this compelling heavyweight matchup will be to use his supreme power punching ability, and hope that slows down the dynamic movement of the champion. For Tyson Fury, the obvious advantage will be in his size, speed, and conditioning. Fury will utilize all three of the attributes and attempt to drag “The Body Snatcher” into the deep waters of the late rounds, waters in which “The Gypsy King” has swam in many times.

 

Preceding the heavyweight main attraction, Ekow Essuman (16-0, 7 KO) will put his British, Commonwealth and IBF European welterweight belts on the line versus Darren Tetley (21-2, 9 KO). While all eyes will be on the heavyweight action today in London, this 147-pound affair adds even more excitement and buzz to the happenings at Wembley Stadium, and certainly should not be overlooked.
