The undefeated world champion announced his decision in the wake of his victory against Dillian Whyte at Wembley, declaring that he would be hanging up his gloves. However, he has since reneged on this statement, declaring that he would be willing to re-enter the ring if he could seal a £500 million deal for his next fight.

WBC heavyweight champion Fury had made a public plea to train Joshua after he was outpointed by the Ukrainian last September at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The Gypsy King claimed his training along with his coach SugarHill Steward was the key to Joshua getting revenge and regaining the WBA, WBO and IBF titles.

Wilder’ s defeats to Fury were the only two losses in his career – with an outstanding 42-2-1 record with 41 knockouts. He took Fury all the way in his bouts, knocking him down four times and coming so close to knocking the Gypsy King out. And although he’s still at the top of his level, Wilder admitted that he had strongly been considering retirement.

Fury makes the second defence of the belt that he won from Deontay Wilder in the pair’s 2020 rematch, which followed a controversial split draw in 2018. Fury stopped Wilder in their second bout to claim the gold, before knocking out the American again last October to retain it.

Frank Warren’s Queensbury Promotions and Bob Arum’s Top Rank landed a record-breaking £31million purse bid for the fight in January. The bid means Fury will earn £22m while Whyte will take home £6m as of the 80/20 split ordered by the WBC. Whyte stands to make another £3m if he can hand Fury his first professional loss.

The Gypsy King is set to defend his WBC heavyweight title at Wembley Stadium on Saturday, which will be the first time he’s fought in England for four years.
