Fury is looking to defend his belt and retain his perfect record, which currently stands at 31-0, and will be The Gypsy King’s first fight since his 2021 triumph over Deontay Wilder.
Meanwhile Whyte comes into the fight with 28 wins and two losses, and looks to make Fury his 20th win by knockout.
Whyte has been out of action since March 2021, when he beat experienced Russian heavyweight Alexander Povetkin, avenging his loss from August 2020 against Povetkin.
It was rumoured that Fury could fight Olesandr Usyk, who currently holds the unified WBA, WBO and IBF and IBO heavyweight titles following his triumph over Anthony Joshua, but the fight will proceed with Whyte as the challenger.
What time is the fight?
The main card for the fight is set to get underway at 7pm UK time, with the ring-walk set to commence anywhere between 10pm and 10:45pm.
Where is the fight being held?
The date for the fight is Saturday, 23 April 2022 and will be held at the Wembley Stadium in London.
This will be the first time since 2018 that Fury has fought in the UK since August 2018, when he beat Francesco Pianeta in Belfast.
It will also be his first fight on home soil since 2018, when he fought at the Manchester Arena in June 2018.

The undercard is set for the main event on Saturday night, and features a whole host of familiar names.

Who is Dillian Whyte?
Dillian Whyte is a professional English boxer, but didn’t move to England until he was 12 years old, and was born in Port Antonio, Jamaica.
He poses a serious threat to any opponent he faces, as his knockout to win percentage currently stands at 68%.
He has been ranked among BoxRec’s top 10 heavyweights for six years since 2016, reaching his career-high ranking of No. 2 at the end of August 2021.
Whyte has also performed exceptionally well in other combat sports, and is also a former kickboxing champion, having held the BIKMA British super-heavyweight title and the European K1 title.
Aside from that, he has also competed professionally in mixed martial arts.
After moving to the UK, Whyte grew up in Brixton, in South London and fought at Miguel’s Boxing Gym.
Whyte’s first big opportunity came in 2015, where he fought fellow Brit Antony Joshua for the vacant British heavyweight title on 12 December at The O2 Arena in London. Joshua largely dominated the fight and eventually knocked Whyte out with a vicious uppercut.
Since then, notable fights for Whyte include two against bitter rival Derek Chisora, and two fights against Povetkin, and comes into the fight against Fury off the back of a win, albeit 13 months ago.
