Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte: When, where and what channel is the fight on?

Fury is set for a homecoming against Whyte - his first UK fight since 2018 having fought in America for the last five fights, including two wins over Deontay Wilder.

As it stands, Tyson Fury will make the second defence of his WBC heavyweight world title against Dillian Whyte.

Fury successfully defended his crown against arch-rival Deontay Wilder, knocking him out in round 11 to end their incredible trilogy series. It was Fury's second win over Wilder, and now the WBC have ordered the "Gypsy King" to face his mandatory challenger.

Whyte - the interim titlist - was the organisation's No.1 contender for more than 1,000 days but did not get a title shot - before losing his position to Alexander Povetkin in 2020.

The Brixton heavy-hitter returned to the top of the rankings following his revenge over Povetkin in March. Whyte took legal action against the WBC but it now appears to have been resolved according to reports, clearing the way for the contest to be made.

"An open negotiation" period is currently taking place between Fury and Whyte - who are promoted by Bob ArumFrank Warren and Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Boxing, respectively.

Fury - who had hoped Anthony Joshua would move out of the way to allow him to take on Oleksandr Usyk - has demanded an 80/20 split of revenue, something which has cooled talks of the British blockbuster.

Below, Planet Sport takes a look at what we know already about the potential heavyweight clash.

How can I watch Fury vs Whyte?

Tyson Fury's mandatory challenger is Dillian Whyte

The biggest problem will be the broadcaster. In America, it is more than likely to be ESPN and ESPN+, home to Top Rank, the promotional rank behind Tyson Fury.

In the UK, BT Sport is the home of Fury while Dillian Whyte's last bout was on Sky Sports Box Office, although he was expected to fight on DAZN in October against Otto Wallin.

If a deal can't be struck between the two teams then it will go to purse bids and the highest bidder will win the rights.

Hearn provided an exclusive update to Planet Sport.

"What we really need to know is, what's the split going to be and what's the negotiation process for that fight?

"We would like to put an offer in to stage that fight and obviously Top Rank will as well but we certainly don't rule out doing a deal with them. It has to be the right deal for Dillian Whyte and it has to be a fair reflection of his value in this fight."
