Ahead of defending his world title belts, heavyweight champion of the world Tyson Fury has teamed up with American singer-songwriter Don McLean to cover ‘American Pie’.

Fury will take on fellow British fighter Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium on 23rd April live on BT Sport Box Office. The BT Sport promo plays on his famous performance of American Pie after defeating Deontay Wilder in Fury v Wilder II in 2020. The song has since become synonymous with the boxer.

In addition to celebrating Fury’s homecoming, the duet coincides with the 50th anniversary of the American Pie album and single.

Ahead of Fury v Whyte, the song will be aired on BT Sport to promote the fight and will be played in the stadium on fight night. 94,000 fans will attend Wembley stadium to witness the first all-British heavyweight world title fight for a generation.
