The victory took his record against the Bronze Bomber to two wins and a draw in an epic trilogy of encounters and his overall career record now stands at 31 wins and a draw in 32 bouts.
Whyte has been out of action since March 2021, when the Jamaican-born heavyweight defeated Alexander Povetkin by TKO, avenging his loss to the Russian in August of the previous year.
Fury was expected to look to fight Ukrainian star Oleksandr Usyk, who currently holds the unified WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight titles after defeating Anthony Joshua in September, in his next outing.
But instead, the 33-year-old will defend his belt against Whyte, who has 28 wins and two losses in 30 career fights.

What did Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte say before the fight?
The press conference took place on Thursday April 14, 2022 on Zoom and is still available on YouTube via the Top Rank Boxing YouTube channel.
Due to the nature of the conference, Tyson Fury spoke to the media first and Whyte followed suit, meaning there were no heated exchanges between the two fighters.
Whyte has since spoken to the BBC’s Ade Adedoyin on the 5 Live Boxing podcast saying Don’t treat me like a nobody.
When asked if he was worried, Whyte replied, “No, I’m not worried, it’s his biggest payday yet. His tickets are selling because he’s fighting me.
“Everyone sees him as a white mix of 6″9 Muhammad Ali, Tyson, Joe Frazier reborn but I don’t see him that way, I just see him as potential prey.
“I am a warrior, I came to fight. I come to leave everything in play, I’m used to taking risks.
“I went to fight where I’m the underdog and got written off, so I’ve been through the factory already.”
