With Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte set to do battle this weekend, here are the best wins they have recorded so far as professionals

1. Fury vs Wladimir Klitschko
He will likely produce better performances in his career, but it’s hard to imagine Fury producing a better win, on paper, than the one he achieved against Klitschko in 2015. An upset to rank alongside the best.

2. Fury vs Deontay Wilder III
To complete their trilogy, Fury again entered the danger zone with Wilder in 2021 and came out smiling, though needed to rise from two knockdowns along the way. He battered Wilder and ended the fight in the 11th round.

3. Fury vs Deontay Wilder II
After their controversial draw in 2018, the ease with which Fury attacked and broke Wilder down in their 2020 rematch surprised many. The fight was not only one-sided but finished, by Fury, in round seven.

4. Whyte vs Alexander Povetkin II
Some will argue Povetkin was a shell by the time of this rematch, but the fourth-round stoppage secured by Whyte in 2021 was nevertheless an important one for his career, especially given it avenged a crushing loss.

5. Whyte vs Joseph Parker
Whyte and Parker met in 2018 in a fight that saw both hit the deck. In the end, though, Whyte successfully outlasted the New Zealander, taking a decision on the cards.

6. Whyte vs Óscar Rivas
Whyte recovered from a ninth-round knockdown to outpoint Rivas in 2019, applying the first defeat to the Colombian’s 26-0 pro record. The fight was marred by pre-fight controversy but remains a good win.

7. Fury vs Derek Chisora II
Fury may have bested Chisora twice in his career, but it was the second time he beat him, in 2014, which really caught the eye. That night Fury played with Chisora and Chisora had no option but to retire after 10 rounds.

8. Whyte vs Derek Chisora II
Having marginally squeaked by him in the pair’s first fight, Whyte left no doubt when meeting Chisora for a second time in 2018. This time he ended proceedings with a stunning left hook in round 11.

9. Fury vs Steve Cunningham
One of the best fights of Fury’s career, this up-and-down brawl in 2013 against former cruiserweight champion Cunningham saw both men spend time on the floor before Fury, using all his strength, brought the show to a close in round seven.

10. Fury vs Otto Wallin
Far from vintage Fury, this 2019 win against Wallin still looks a good one on paper and required Fury having to battle through cuts to get the better of his unbeaten opponent on points.
