One of the most anticipated fights of 2022 is just five days away from us. This Saturday night the WBC heavyweight king Tyson Fury will be defending his belt against his fellow countrymen Dillian Whyte.
The championship bout is set to take place at Wembley Stadium in London. That will be Tyson’s homecoming fight, as he has been fighting in US for the last four years.
That being said, a couple of weeks ago Tyson and his team made a request that no British judges will be sitting ringside for his fight with “The Body Snatcher”.
Tyson’s wish has been granted and now it has been confirmed how three foreign judges will work the fight at Wembley – Juan Carlos Pelayo of Mexico, Robert Tapper of Canada, and Guido Cavalleri of Italy.
The third man n the ring, however, will be a Brit – Mark Lyson. The news have been confirmed y the WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman.
This is not the first time Fury insisted that he don’t want British judges at his fights. “The Gypsy King” expressly said that no British judges will be seconded at his rematch with Deontay Wilder back in 2020 due to the fact that the only British judge of his initial fight with Wilder scored the fight in favour of the American.
