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.

I restarted my virgin box, and it finally started working. Still not happy about missing 1.5 hours worth

Just spoken to someone from Virgin Media about the Fury fight, she said the problem may be sorted by 10pm/10.30pm - unbelievable.

For those that now have access-did you call the helpline to log the issue or did it just come on (noting some people have reset this box)? 

I’ve tried resetting and still have the blank screen. 

I have people coming round in 5 mins to watch it……nightmare!!

Just left blank screen on, eventually first sound and then screen came on, during round 2 of Tommy Fury fight.  Really didnt appreciate an 'oops' screen message, (should have been an apology message) and def not happy that a good hour and a half of paid service has not been not provided...expect a refund or credit of 'some kind'.  Hope it comes good for those other paying customers, still experiencing issues soon. Not good service Virgin.

Had to turn of the box four times - so not sure if that did it?? Worth a try for those who still can’t get it on. 👍
