Fury wants to defend his WBC title against provisional defending champion Whyte this Saturday evening in front of 94,000 fans at Wembley Stadium. It’s his first fight in the UK since 2018, having fought in the US since signing a $100m deal with Top Rank in 2019.
“The Gypsy King” was supported by his father John to make it a stone easier against Whyte than for his trilogy with Wilder. Although he’s slimmed down, some fans find Fury looks worse than he did before he was knocked out in The Bronze Bomber.
“I don’t like the form Fury seems to be in. I was hoping he would come in like in the 2nd Wilder fight. Also interesting that he goes on the pads,” said one user.

“Fat… There’s no muscle, just looks to me because he hasn’t practiced uncertainty about the fight ahead that well, you can bet Whyte has,” commented another.

Fury promised to enter the ring as “Human Mountain” and be the tallest version of himself yet. His nutritionist George Lockhart also added to the intrigue surrounding his physique, teasing that Fury’s appearance for the fight will “shock” fans.

The 33-year-old trained alongside the likes of Joseph Parker and David Adeleye at Morecambe ahead of his title fight. To stay focused, he moved just four miles from his family and never went near his childhood home during his preparations.
“I moved out of my family home and camped on the street for eight weeks. Paris had to use her hands and legs to fill in all the school runs and trash days that I usually do,” he said.
“The camp I used is about four miles from the house, just around the bay, but I never ran near the house, I never saw the family. It wasn’t that hard – it wasn’t that long, and whether I’m across the Atlantic or on the road – I need to focus on the camp and the fight, that’s not a problem.”
