The undefeated WBC and The Ring heavyweight champion Tyson Fury defended his world titles against former WBC champion Deontay Wilder in their trilogy match. It was a eleven-round long match before the ultimate knockout of Wilder, which was later awarded with the title of The Ring magazine Fight of the Year 2021.

Dillian Whyte, on the other hand, was scheduled to face southpaw Otto Wallin defending his WBC interim title. But the fight was cancelled after Whyte was pulled out of the match for suffering shoulder injuries. He ultimately did not reschedule the fight with Wallin for a shot at Fury's world titles.
