Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte will go toe-to-toe on Saturday night, with a record-breaking 94,000 spectators expected at Wembley Stadium. Fury looks to successfully defend his WBC title in the all-British clash, but was adamant that it will be the last outing of his glistening career. After Fury was put through his paces by trainer SugarHill Steward on Tuesday's open workout at Wembley, the 34-year-old conceded that Saturday would draw a close to his 14-year boxing career. "That's it. Get a good victory here on Saturday night, relax, sit back and enjoy life. I am loving every second of it," said Fury. "It's been a long old journey, ups and downs in my career, lots of ups and downs. I'm coming up to 34, 20 years as a boxer, that's enough for anybody. There's plenty of other stuff I need to do like look after my kids and wife and enjoy them."

Fury also suggested that after hanging up his gloves, he'd share a drink with promoter Frank Warren, who has represented the heavyweight throughout his career. "We will put on a good fight and leave it all in the ring, I will be leaving every ounce of strength and energy I have in my body in the ring on Saturday night. "The rest of it is God's will, so if it is written in the stars on Saturday night then guess what Frank Warren? We will have a drink after the fight to a very successful night and career. That's it." While winning in front of 94,000 home fans would be a fitting way to end Fury's superb career, the Wythenshawe-born fighter insisted Wembley has never been on his bucket list of sporting arenas.

"It hasn't been my ambition or 'Oh my God I want to box Wembley'. "I wanted to box Old Trafford, the York Hall Bethnal Green, Madison Square Garden and MGM (Grand Garden Arena)." With Fury currently boasting a 31-0-1 record throughout his career - including 22 knockouts - he'll look to extend his unbeaten streak to 33 fights on Saturday, and potentially end his career unbeaten.
