Fury vs Whyte Odds: Is this fight heading to Wembley on 23rd April?
Following on from his recent Fury v Whyte article where @OddsTerrier was speculating on whether Dillian Whyte would finally get his long-awaited world title shot, it appears the fight is actually coming to fruition. We've asked our man to check out all the latest news and odds and look at when this Heavyweight tussle is going to happen.
"Wember-ley, Wember-ley, he's the famous Tyson Fury and he's off to Wember-ley!"
The purse bids have been won by Frank Warren, the finalised contracts have been prepared and sent to both fighters and Tyson Fury is tweeting that 'there is big news on the way' (alongside constantly berating Whyte as a coward). It looks like we have a fight on our hands and Boxing Scene this week reported that the Principality Stadium in Cardiff was going to miss out in favour of the 90,000 capacity Wembley Stadium. The home of English football has seen some cracking fights over the years including Joshua v Klitschko, Froch v Groves 2 and at the old stadium Bruno v McCall and Ali v Cooper, and it look's like we'll have another cracker on April 23rd. We've had an early look at the latest betting for you below.
Where and when will Fury vs Whyte happen?
As mentioned above, Boxing Scene recently reported that should a deal be agreed by the stipulated 21st February deadline, Wembley Stadium on the 23rd April is the preferred venue and date for the fight to be held. With no Covid regulations in place, the famous football venue in the capital could possibly see up to 90,000 fight fans attend on the night.
Where can I watch the fight?
The fight went to purse bids on 28th January and was won with a bid of £31m by Fury's UK based promoter Frank Warren meaning the fight will likely be shown on BT Sport Box Office. Whyte's promoter Eddie Hearn was unsuccessful with his bid of £24m.
How does the betting look?
The early betting is still around the same mark as when the fight was first mooted. Fury will be a huge odds-on favourite in this fight. Most have the lineal and Ring Magazine champion as a 1/7 shot, giving him an implied 87% chance of victory. Whyte can be had at 5/1 with William Hill and the draw is generally around the 25/1 mark.
The favourite in the round betting looks to be for Fury to win in the middle rounds 6-9 all at around 14/1. It's a 4/6 shot that the fight ends early and 11/10 for it to go all the way to the Judges decision.
