Fury vs Whyte countdown
Ever since Frank Warren’s Queensberry Promotions beat out Eddie Hearn and Matchroom to win the purse bid (thanks to a record $41million offer) to stage this bout, the promotion has been beset by controversy.
Whyte was clearly unhappy about his side of the deal (despite being in line for a career-best purse of around $8million), and he failed to show at the opening press conference to announce the bout. He was also missing when Tuesday’s open workout went down, but has done some media interviews in recent days.
What is on the line in Fury vs Whyte?
Fury’s WBC, Ring magazine and lineal heavyweight titles are all up for grabs on Saturday night. The winner also is likely to be in a position to face the winner of Oleksandr Usyk vs Anthony Joshua 2 in a massive unification fight later this year.
The last undisputed heavyweight champion of course was another Brit Lennox Lewis. He claimed all the belts way back in November 1999 by defeating Evander Holyfield in Las Vegas.
