Tyson Fury returns to England to defend his WBC and lineal heavyweight titles against longtime mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte at legendary Wembley Stadium in London on Saturday (ESPN+ PPV, 2 p.m. ET with prelims at 1 p.m. on ESPN+). A U.K. record of 94,000 fans for a boxing event is expected.
Fury (31-0-1, 22 KOs) weighed in at 264.8 pounds on Friday, almost 13 pounds lighter than he was for his trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder in October but still 11 more than Whyte, who came in at 253.25 pounds.
Fury, 33, of Manchester, England, said he could retire after the fight, but if he wins, a potential unification fight for the undisputed heavyweight championship against the winner of the July 23 Anthony Joshua-Oleksandr Usyk fight could entice him to stay.
