How to watch Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte

Tyson Fury returns home this weekend for a tantalising heavyweight showdown with Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium, and you can catch all the action with Virgin TV.

Fury hasn’t fought in the UK since 2018 but, fresh off the back of an impressive 11th round victory over Deontay Wilder in October, returns home to defend his heavyweight title on St George’s Day.

Many will have undefeated Fury down as favourite for this one. The ‘Gypsy King’ has been on a remarkable journey over the past few years to become a dominant force in the heavyweight division, emerging victorious from his epic trilogy of fights against Wilder late last year. Fury originally claimed that he would retire after this fight but has backtracked slightly from those comments in recent weeks, now choosing to reserve any decision until after this weekend’s big fight. If this is to be his final fight though, he will want to go out in glory. But write Dillian Whyte off at your peril.

The Brixton born fighter has had a distinguished career, with 28 wins from 30 fights including dispatching Alexander Povetkin in fine style in his most recent fight in March last year. Whyte has deliberately kept a low profile in the build up to this fight, refusing to engage in any of the usual promotional activity, and will be hoping his boxing on the night speaks for itself.

With a capacity crowd of up to 94,000 expected, which would make it a British boxing record attendance, Fury vs Whyte is the main event to a mouth-watering night of boxing.

Watching on BT sport 2 is working for now but this is ridiculous. We'll only get this for 20 more minutes then we can't see anything. 

Virgin need to refund us for this because at this rate I'll have to watch online and pay again. 

Is it working for anyone?

Yeah total joke will be wanting a refund for this already missing some of the fights and not sitting in all night looking at a black screen hoping it will randomly start working. 

Certainly not paying £25 for access to a replay tomorrow.

Fury vs White - booked for £25 and unable to watch as black screen! Tried to ring but automated service says 'technical issue' which engineers are working on. Come on Virgin surely the link to BT should be agreed and tested well before charging customers for something we can't watch. This is not the first time we have had issues with 'live events' and should have learnt our lesson. Hope Virgin will be refunding appropriately!

Not sure though. Now I’m seeing an OOPS message on the Live Events page. They better sort this out asap. I like watching the undercard fights.

Shocking! Is all I can say, won’t be with Virgin much longer, they claim to be the best out there, but ever since I’ve switched to Virgin I’ve had nothing but problems!! 🤬🤬🤬

We have blank screen too, surely this service should have been tried and tested before offering to customers at £25 a time. We have had previous issues with 'on demand' and should have learned our lesson. What's on channel 100 is not what should be showing on BT box office. Hope Virgin are going to compensate customers. Soooooo disappointed!!!

When we call virgin it’s just a recorded line, we reset box thinking it was us, followed the advice for error code a01..that said to call. When u call recorded message of problems they’re having. You go to live events, press ok..it says one moment then back to the menu screen 🙄
