Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte‘s all-British title fight will have a host of local talent providing chief support.

On April 23 at Wembley Stadium, the Gypsy King will make the second defence of his WBC heavyweight title against the Body Snatcher.

Fury, 33, won the title after destroying Deontay Wilder inside seven rounds back in Las Vegas in February 2020.

He repeated that same feat again a year later in their trilogy fight to put an end to their rivalry once and for all.

The event, co-promoted by Top Rank and Queensberry Promotions, will see a host of local talent also competing on the undercard.

Love Island star Tommy Fury will also return against Polish veteran Daniel Bocianski after his proposed fight with YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul fell apart.

Fury, Tyson’s younger brother who is also promoted by Frank Warren, will put his 7-0 record against Bocianski, who stands 10-1.

And with the WBO international crown at stake, 33-year-old Belfast native Anthony Cacace enters the ring against former IBF super-bantamweight champion Jonatan Romero, 35.

Meanwhile heavyweight prospect David Adeleye will also return against Chris Healey who has nine wins and eight losses.

And Isaac Lowe, a childhood friend of Fury’s, takes on Queensberry’s very own Nick Ball, 22, a former Muay Thai kickboxer.

Irish Olympian Kurt Walker will also compete on the same bill to round up the rest of the card.

In a statement, Warren said: “I am delighted to finally be able to reveal what will be a competitive undercard in support of the big one that we have all been waiting for.

“I genuinely believe that as soon as Anthony Cacace gathers some momentum in his career, he has got what it takes to win a world title and securing the WBO International belt will put him firmly on track.

“But he is up against a dangerous and experienced opponent in Jonathan Romero and will need to be at his very best on the night.

“I am so looking forward to seeing our man Nick Ball get the chance to really announce himself on the big stage against Tyson’s sidekick, Isaac Lowe, and it should be a cracking fight.

“The WBC Silver title on the line will propel the winner right into the world mix at featherweight.

“Big David Adeleye, a regular sparring partner for Tyson, will add the heavyweight theme of the night and will relish the big stage.

“I am delighted that Tommy Fury will get to share some of the spotlight with his big brother after missing out on his big fight last year through illness.

“If Tommy keeps on winning and continues to shine, his big opportunities will soon follow.

“I would also like to welcome Kurt Walker, the Irish Olympian signed to Top Rank, onto the card.”
