Tyson Fury's five-fight form guide ahead of Dillian Whyte clash at Wembley

Tyson Fury is regarded as the best heavyweight in the world and is the current WBC champion.

The Gypsy King will make the second defence of his heavyweight world title and it will see him take on Dillian Whyte in front of 94,000 fans at Wembley Stadium this weekend.

Whyte was made the WBC mandatory challenger for Fury's title and the pair will finally go toe-to-toe in what is the biggest purse bid in the history of British boxing.

Frank Warren won the rights to promote the contest, with a bid of $41million. Fury will pocket $29.5million, Whyte will earn $7.4million and the winner will receive an additional $4.1million.

Fury is undefeated from 32 fights and if you want to compare his record to Muhammad Ali's after the same amount of fights, then click here.

The 'Gypsy King' is fighting the UK for the first time since 2018, and below we have taken a look at his last five fights in America.

Planet Sport looks at Fury's form going into the fight and reviews his five most recent encounters.

Deontay Wilder - October 9, 2021

Tyson Fury remained WBC heavyweight champion after coming out on top in an all-time classic against Deontay Wilder at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

In a breathtaking and bruising third contest between these combatants at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, with five knockdowns in total, Wilder hit the deck first in round three.
The American looked to be saved by the bell on unsteady legs and yet after just a minute's respite, he immediately turned the tables with his straight right hand to twice topple Fury.
Fury's unbeaten professional record appeared to be in jeopardy but he re-established control as Wilder tired in the middle rounds, perhaps fatigued by how much energy he had expended in trying to get the knockout.
He remained a live threat even as it became evident Fury was on top. Indeed after sinking to his knees in the 10th after Fury evened up the knockdowns, Wilder finished the round strongly and momentarily buzzed the Briton.
It was the final act of defiance from Wilder, though, as he was sent crashing face first to the floor for the third and final time in the penultimate round by a savage right to the temple.

Deontay Wilder - February 22, 2020

The performance in Las Vegas was Tyson Fury's most destructive of his career to date. The seventh round stoppage ended Wilder's five-year reign as WBC heavyweight champion.

Trainer Mark Breland threw in the towel in round seven and undoubtedly saved his man from some heavy punishment, but it was a decision which led Wilder to axe Mark Breland.

Fury had constantly backed up Wilder, who was at the time the most-feared puncher in the division.

Fury's intentions were clear from the opening bell. He dropped the champion for the first time in a decade with a right hand in the third round. And with a clubbing left to the body in the fifth Wilder was floored again.
It was no surprise when Fury got the job done in the seventh.
A left hook rocked Wilder early in the round and when Fury pinned his opponent in the corner a flurry of right hands saw the towel come in from Wilder's corner.

Wilder, with blood streaming from his left ear, was furious, but he was way down on the scorecards.
At the time of stoppage Fury was ahead on all three judges' cards 59-52, 58-53, and 59-52.

Otto Wallin - September 14, 2019

Tyson Fury was a 1/25 shot to defeat Otto Wallin, but he was dragged the distance before winning on points.

Fury triumphed with a unanimous 116-112, 117-111, 118-110 points win, but Wallin had been more than a match for the Brit. In fact after a left hook landed right on the right brow of Fury in the third, Fury could have seen his fight over.

He fought the remaining nine rounds with a deep cut and with blood pouring from the wound. His right eye was repeatedly checked by the ringside doctor.
Wallin pawed Fury's wound at the end of the sixth, a move which clearly irked the Brit. Fury then stepped on the gas but he could not get Wallin out of there.
A barrage of blows in the ninth forced Wallin to wobble, but the Swede got to the bell.
With his shorts bloodied, Fury maintained his assault and took the centre of the ring in the closing rounds.
Wallin though hung in there and on another day would have forced a TKO with a stoppage due to the severity of the cut to Fury's eye.

Tom Schwarz - June 15, 2019

Tyson Fury wasted no time in destroying Tom Schwarz in Las Vegas with a six-minute destruction.

After a solid first round in which Fury's double jab and straight right hands were prominent, the Brit stepped on the gas in round two.

Schwarz tried to back up Fury, but the 'Gypsy King' landed with a clubbing left hand off the ropes.

Taunting his man, Fury was hitting Schwarz at will with his left. Schwarz responded with a flurry of shots which Fury swerved before a right hand brought the previously unbeaten Schwarz to his knees.

With a bloodied nose Schwarz was allowed to restart but after being pinned in the corner, the referee waved off the fight just as the towel came in, with the round all but over.

"I used the jab. I was slipping with my hands down and sliding shifted to southpaw and caught him with a straight left. It was a good shot it would have put anybody away," said Fury in the aftermath.

Deontay Wilder - December 1, 2018

Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury fought to a draw (113-113, 115-111 Wilder, 114-112) in their first fight in Los Angeles.

It was controversial to say the least with both camps claiming to have won at the final bell.
The explosive contest saw Fury outbox Wilder for long spells. His thudding left-right combinations hurt the American. In the seventh a straight right hand buzzed Wilder, who looked to need a knockout going into the last three rounds.
In the ninth the 'Bronzer Bomber' caught Fury with a right hand before clipping him around the ear which floored him. He got to his feet though and survived the round.
He recovered and was the aggressor in the 10th before both fighters seemed to take it easy in round 11, gearing up for a final round ding dong.
And they did not disappoint with Wilder thudding a straight right hand which sent Fury to the canvas. It was a moment which has become iconic in recent boxing history with Fury looking out for the count before leaping to his feet.
Wilder had been celebrating in the ring before the Brit miraculously got to his feet. He then evaded a couple of right hand bombs from Wilder before the two men dodged each other until the final bell.
Both men celebrated with Fury climbing the ropes before Fury raised his arm in his corner.

At the verdict - a split-decision drawm - Fury shook his head, while Wilder also looked disappointed.
