Tyson Fury Beats Dillian Whyte To Retain WBC Heavyweight Title

Tyson Fury Beats Dillian Whyte To Retain WBC Heavyweight Title (Updated: 4 weeks ago)


World-famous heavyweight boxing champion, Tyson Fury retained his WBC heavyweight crown on Saturday, stopping former sparring partner Dillian Whyte in round six of the all-British bout at a delirious Wembley Stadium.

The win for the self-styled ‘Gypsy King’, fighting on UK soil for the first time in four years, was witnessed by 94,000 fans.

Unbeaten Fury, 33, had said this would be his last fight and announced immediately afterwards: “This might be the final curtain for the Gypsy King.”

After a cagey opening the defending champion took the initiative, controlling the fight and landing some telling blows to the head and body.

Whyte could have few complaints at a halt being called with just one second remaining before the fight reached the midway point as he was clearly on unsteady legs after the first significant strike of the bout, a brutal right uppercut from Fury.

The 6 feet 9 inch (206-centimetre tall) Fury was able to use his considerable height and reach advantage to keep Whyte at bay while the challenger was made to look clumsy and cumbersome.

Whyte, cut over his right eye after an accidental clash of heads, was first installed as the WBC’s number one contender nearly four years ago but he was unable to impose himself.

“I’m overwhelmed by the support,” said Fury. “I cannot believe 94,000 countrymen and women came here to watch me. From the bottom of my heart thank you to everyone who bought a ticket and stayed up late to watch this fight.”

He added: “I promised my wife that would be it after the (Deontay) Wilder fight. But I got offered a fight at Wembley and I owed it to the fans. What a way to go out.”

If Fury does follow through with his plan to quit, he would spurn the chance to face either Oleksandr Usyk — the current WBA, IBF and WBO champion — or fellow British fighter Anthony Joshua.
