Everything you need to know as extra tickets are released for Fury vs Whyte

Tyson Fury's homecoming showdown against Dillian Whyte will take place in front of a record-breaking 94,000 fans at Wembley Stadium.

Frank Warren's Queensberry Promotions confirmed an additional 4,000 tickets will be available to buy for the April 23 fight, as Planet Sport were informed about last week.

It now means it overtakes Anthony Joshua's titanic win over Wladimir Klitschko (90,000) and is now the biggest boxing event in the UK of all-time.

Fury is making the second defence of his WBC heavyweight title following back-to-back fights with Deontay Wilder. The Gypsy King claimed the green-and-gold belt with a seventh-round KO in 2020 before overcoming two knockdowns to stop Wilder in round 11 of their trilogy battle.

Whyte meanwhile is fighting for the first time since avenging his defeat to Alexander Povetkin in March 2020.

The Brixton heavyweight has not said a word since agreeing to take a 20% purse split for the fight, disputing that he should be earning more.

Regardless, as long as Whyte attends the weigh-in and enters the ring, he will earn a minimum of £6million.

An original 85,000 tickets were sold within three hours of release last month alongside another 5,000 for coach packages.

Hall of Fame promoter Frank Warren, who is staging the event in association with Top Rank, commented: "I am delighted we are now able to provide four thousand extra tickets for fans to watch the biggest boxing event staged in this country. I know this in no way gets near to meeting the huge demand, but we were determined to have as many fans as possible attend Tyson Fury's big homecoming fight.

"I would like to extend my thanks to Brent Council for making this possible, along with our event partners at Wembley Stadium, and on April 23 Wembley and the borough of Brent will be beamed across the world."
