Tyson Fury will take on Dillian Whyte on Saturday night, in what could be the 33-year-old's final fight before a potential retirement. While Fury is, understandably, receiving all of the fanfare ahead of Saturday's bout, casual fans might not know much about his opponent.

Here's everything you need to know about the 34-year-old Dillian Whyte heading into the fight.

Dillian Whyte Record

Whyte isn't just an accomplished boxer – he's an accomplished fighter in general. He enters this one sporting a 28-2 record as a boxer, with 19 of those coming by knockout. Whyte defeated Alexander Povetkin by TKO in his most recent fight, which came back in March of 2021. That victory won him the WBC interim heavyweight title.

Predictably, Whyte has been stellar over his last 10 fights as well. He's 9-1 in that span, with four of those coming by knockout. His lone loss in that stretch came by TKO against Alexander Povetkin, though Whyte bested him in the rematch.

A versatile fighter, Whyte is also 20-1 as a kickboxer and 1-0 (by knockout) in MMA.

Dillian Whyte Height & Weight

Whyte weighed in at 253.25 pounds, coming in about 11 pounds lighter than Fury. He's a 6-foot-4 fighter with a 78-inch reach. That again puts him at a disadvantage against Fury, who is a 6-foot-9 boxer with a massive 85-inch reach.
