Tommy Fury will be the star attraction on the undercard of his brother Tyson’s world heavyweight title defense Dillian Whyte this weekend.
That island of love Star will look to win 8-0 against Daniel Bocianski which will mean a big step forward at Wembley Stadium. The younger Fury has only fought once against an opponent with a winning record; 2-0 Jordan Grant and will show off his skills against the Pole in front of a huge crowd.
And after missing his chance to fight Jake-Paul At Florida’s Amalie Arena last year, Fury will look to rekindle his feud with the American. Paul has said that to do that he needs an impressive win on this big stage to give them fuel again Fire.
Elsewhere on the map, Isaac Lowe is back in action, as is promising Irish Olympian Kurt Walker in his second professional appearance.
Here’s everything you need to know about the Fury vs. Whyte undercard…
Isaac Lowe vs. Nick Ball
Tyson Fury’s protégé Lowe is back in the ring after his first professional loss in December when he takes on undefeated Nick Ball. It’s sure to be a tough test for the Lancashire lad in chief support at Wembley.
It’s a mighty stage for Lowe and if he can banish the demons of his brutal post-match loss to Luis Alberto Lopez last year, it should be a chance to re-introduce himself to the British public.
Callum Smith made it onto Anthony Joshua’s undercard back at Spurs Stadium in September and Lowe will be looking to do the same and capture the silver featherweight title.
Ekow Essuman vs Darren Tetley
A late addition to the card after Anthony Cacace was left furious when his fight was canceled after his opponent failed to obtain a visa. Essuman and Tetley were due to meet next weekend and their fight was simply brought forward.
Essuman has been touted as a possible opponent for Conor Benn but perhaps lacks the star name to jump into the reckoning. An impressive defense of his British and Commonwealth welterweight titles could change that.
David Adeleye vs. Chris Healey
For David Adeleye, the goal is very similar Tommy Fury; Get another win on the big stage. Heavyweight Adeleye has stopped seven of his previous opponents and is expected to do the same to Healey.
The journeyman, who holds a nearly 50-50 record, has another fight booked for June 25 and he just hopes he doesn’t receive a medical suspension by being knocked out. That will make it difficult for Adeleye but expect him to go 9-0 here.
Tommy Fury vs Daniel Bocianski
The fight that has caught the majority of the public eye on this less than stellar undercard is Fury’s return to the ring. He broke a rib in December and was forced to pull out of his biggest career fight against Jake Paul.
And he needs a big result to win back the confidence of Paul and his team, who have spent big bucks promoting their fight with minimal return from the Love Island 2019 finalist. It will be a tough test for the Brit as Bocianski is on paper the most formidable opponent he has ever faced.
However, a deep dive into the Polish fighter’s record reveals that they are quite similar in level, and the one time he made a similar step up he was KO’d. This is an auspicious match for Fury and one in which he will hope to impress.
Karol Itauma vs Michal Ciach
Another fight for former Youth Olympians Itauma. It’s hard to imagine that this one would be much different than the rest of his performances in the paid ranks, where he had four KOs in his six wins.
Ciach is a solid fellow but seems to have fallen a little behind the 4-0 win of Jiri Kroupa whom Itauma faced last time out. Even Tamas Laska, whom Itauma body shot in one round, seemed to know more about him on paper, but we’ll see how this one plays out.
Kurt Walker versus Stefan Nicolae
The people of Ireland are very excited about Olympian Kurt Walker’s potential in professional sports. He brutalized Jaroslav Hriadel in his debut and Michael Conlan’s charge will want another exciting win this time around.
The former European Championship gold medalist has already impressed on the undercard of Josh Taylor and Jack Catterall’s undisputed world title fight and is now expected to lead 2-0 as a pro at Wembley.
Royston Barney Smith vs Constantin Radoi
Youngster Barney-Smith makes the move from the arena to the stadium at Wembley this weekend as he takes on Constantin Radoi in his second professional game.
The 18-year-old is looking good and will look to extend his record against the Romanian, five years his senior, who has considerably more experience in the paid ranks.
In that case, expect a relatively safe performance from the home fighter and a four-round decision.
