The main event is a big deal for a couple of reasons. First of all, both Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte are popular British athletes and there is a heavyweight title up for grabs. A two-time world champion, Fury has stated that it will be the last fight of his professional career, while Whyte is the reigning WBC interim champion and has a load of noteworthy victories under his belt. The fight has also broken the record of the biggest purse in boxing history: over $41 million (£31 million). Although many high-profile fights are presaged by drama and petty rivalries, this match has been refreshing to a lot of fans because of the amount of respect there seems to be between the two fighters. That being said, good sportsmanship aside, what will happen in the ring is anyone’s guess.
The main card broadcast is scheduled to begin later today at 2pm ET / 11am PT / 7pm BST. Viewers in the United States will be able to watch the fight PPV through ESPN Plus, while boxing fans in the UK will need to stream the event through BT Sport.
