Fury will defend his WBC title against Whyte on April 23

Tyson Fury said Tuesday that he will defend his heavyweight title on April 23 against Dillan Whyte and the WBC champion also said he will stay away from social media until after the fight with his fellow Briton.

Neither promoter announced the details of the fight.

However, Fury tweeted the date of the fight, hours after Whyte got the contract signed.

Accompanying the announcement, Fury posted a video in which he said it was “out of circulation until May.”

“I’m going off to training camp to give Dillan Whyte all the respect in the world that he needs,” Fury said. “I will never underestimate anyone in my life and I will give this man all the respect he needs.”

The fight will take place in the UK.

Fury (31-0-1, 22 KOs) hasn’t fought since defeating Deontay Wilder by 11th-round knockout in October in Las Vegas, completing an entertaining trilogy.

After months of protracted negotiations, Frank Warren, Fury’s UK promoter, secured the offer to fight for $41 million. This is the highest bag in boxing history.

Whyte is the mandatory challenger for Fury’s belt and will be seeking his first world title.
