Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte undercard: Tommy Fury & David Adeleye feature on a brilliant bill as Wembley capacity increased to record numbers
Tommy Fury vs Daniel Bocianski is the standout fight on the Fury vs Whyte undercard with a record-breaking crowd expected at Wembley Stadium.
Tyson Fury’s triumphant Wembley Stadium homecoming will take place in front of 94,000 fans after his fight against Dillian Whyte, exclusively live on BT Sport Box Office, was granted a record-setting extended capacity earlier this month.
It comes as Frank Warren’s Queensberry Boxing, who are promoting the show in conjunction with Bob Arum’s Top Rank, announced a stellar supporting cast on the undercard at the national stadium to whet the appetite on a historic night.
The undercard will be topped by a 12-round domestic duel in which fireworks are guaranteed with the vacant WBC Silver featherweight title will be on the line when Tyson Fury comrade Isaac Lowe (23-1-3, 6 KOs) takes on undefeated Liverpool native Nick Ball (14-0, 7 KOs).
The winner of that prestigious belt will be catapulted into the WBC world rankings.

And the unbeaten Tommy Fury (7-0, 4 KOs) will continue his light heavyweight journey over six rounds with a step-up fight against Polish veteran Daniel Bocianski (10-1, 2 KOs).

Before the pay-per-view telecast begins, Top-Rank signed Irish Olympian Kurt Walker (1-0, 1 KO) will compete in a four-round featherweight bout against an opponent to be named.
Frank Warren said : "I am delighted to finally be able to reveal what will be a competitive undercard in support of the big one that we have all been waiting for.
"I am so looking forward to seeing our man Nick Ball get the chance to really announce himself on the big stage against Tyson's sidekick, Isaac Lowe, and it should be a cracking fight. The WBC Silver title on the line will propel the winner right into the world mix at featherweight.
"Big David Adeleye, a regular sparring partner for Tyson, will add the heavyweight theme of the night and will relish the big stage.
I genuinely believe Anthony Cacace has got what it takes to win a world title
- Frank Warren
"I am delighted that Tommy Fury will get to share some of the spotlight with his big brother after missing out on his big fight last year through illness. If Tommy keeps on winning and continues to shine, his big opportunities will soon follow.
"I would also like to welcome Kurt Walker, the Irish Olympian signed to Top Rank, onto the card."
In addition to the undercard unveiling, it was confirmed that Fury-Whyte will now be witnessed in person by 94,000 fans following the granting of an additional 4,000 tickets by the local authority.
Brent Council has now approved a further 4,000 tickets to be available as coach packages which went on sale on Wednesday 6th April.
The 90,000 would have already been a record attendance for boxing but, such was the demand, Queensberry Promotions and Top Rank, along with our hosts Wembley Stadium, sought permission from Brent Council to increase capacity to the biggest seen at a sports event at the national stadium since it was rebuilt in 2007.
An original 85,000 tickets were snapped up in a matter of three hours after going on sale, followed a week later by the initial additional 5,000 tickets also sold in conjunction with coach travel.
Hall of Fame promoter Warren added: "I am delighted we are now able to provide four thousand extra tickets for fans to watch the biggest boxing event staged in this country. I know this in no way gets near to meeting the huge demand, but we were determined to have as many fans as possible attend Tyson Fury's big homecoming fight.
"I would like to extend my thanks to Brent Council for making this possible, along with our event partners at Wembley Stadium, and on April 23 Wembley and the borough of Brent will be beamed across the world."
Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte will be exclusively live on BT Sport Box Office HD from 6pm on Saturday 23 April. To find out more, including information on how to order this unmissable pay-per-view event, check out our comprehensive viewing guide.
