Tyson Fury set to fight Dillian Whyte at Cardiff's Principality Stadium
The Welsh arena looks to have edged ahead of Old Trafford as the likely venue
The venue has emerged as a likely location after the WBC ordered Fury to defend his title against Whyte on Tuesday, with a rough date of February or March being discussed; however, Fury's favoured venue Old Trafford looks like it might have been ruled out.

Meanwhile, the Principality Stadium is fitted with a fully retractable roof and still has a more than healthy capacity of 74,500 - not far off the Manchester United ground max, in fact.
The arena - previously referred to as the Millennium Stadium prior to 2016 - also hosted the Champions League final between Real Madrid and Juventus back in 2016/17 season.
Fight fans will be looking forward to the bout which has long been discussed but finally looks set to come to fruition, especially with the disappointment of younger brother Tommy pulling out of his much-talked-about match against Jake Paul after the 22-year-old suffered an injury and reported bacterial infection.
