Tyson Fury defeated Dillian Whyte: The WBC World Heavyweight Champion, Tyson Fury, put his title against his challenger and compatriot, Dillian Whyte.
After his knockout victory over Deontay Wilder in the 11th round of the trilogy last October, Fury was returning to the ring. Before the game against Whyte, the Gipsy King said it was the last fight of his career.
“I have nothing to prove to anyone; I’m just here to have fun, enjoy the atmosphere and the evening. This is the last farewell. It’s been a long journey; it’s quite emotional, to be honest,” he told a Top Rank correspondent.
For his part, Dillian Whyte returned for the first time since March 2021, when he took the WBC title on an interim basis by taking revenge on Alexander Povetkin.
The two men competed against 94,000 fans in the legendary Wembley Stadium in London. During the first two rounds, Fury worked live and scored some good jabs while Whyte sought to reduce the distance separating him from the Gipsy King.
In the 3rd round, Fury hits his opponent in the body and crosses his guard several times, without Whyte finding an answer. During the 4th restart, the referee intervenes to separate the two men.
Whyte accumulates damage, but he scores some good shots before the bell.
In the 5th round, Dillian Whyte tries to work on the body, but Tyson Fury pushes him away and takes over. Whyte looks for the hard blow without success.
In the 6th round, Fury scored an uppercut that immediately sent Whyte to the ground. The latter tries to get up but staggers. The referee then stops the fight, giving the victory to the Gipsy King.
