WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury successfully defended his championship with a dramatic sixth-round knockout of Dillian Whyte at Wembley.
This battle was supposed to end in the sixth round, but Fury’s team was determined, and their man came through on that promise in spectacular manner.
After the first five rounds, he was in complete control, showing a huge disparity in reach and class.
A devastating right uppercut from Tyson Fury in his first world title fight ended Whyte’s hopes of making a mark.
What’s left to decide now is whether or not Fury will keep his commitment to retire on a high note with this victory.
After five fights in the United States, Fury returned to the United Kingdom and hinted that he would still walk away from a rematch in the post-fight interview.
Despite this, he never allowed Whyte to steal his WBC and lineal belts.
Mark Lyson had to intervene repeatedly in the fourth round, scolding Whyte for following in with his head and Fury for punching on the break, but Fury never appeared perturbed.
One of his best blows of his professional career and, perhaps, his last, was delivered by Fury after the two fighters exchanged words.
