Tyson Fury remains heavyweight world champion after beating Dillian Whyte at Wembley

Fury confirmed his intention to step down soon after the fight ended. “I promised my beautiful wife Paris that after this meeting it would be the end. And I really meant it,” said Fury.

It was Fury’s 32nd win in the 33rd professional match, with an additional draw the Manchester man is still unbeaten. Fury’s former sparring partner Whyte, meanwhile, suffered his third defeat in the 31st fight.

Most of the fans at Wembley Stadium were behind Fury, who was more active after a pompous show early in the fight without dominating it.

When Whyte, who was only inches smaller, caught his opponent in the midst of an interrupted brawl, a fierce battle ensued between the two rivals.

Referee Mark Lyson threatened to steal points from both opponents. The fight picked up more and more speed, Fury seemed incited and kept hitting the smaller ones.

Fury decides to fight with the uppercut

When the “Gypsy King” struck Whyte on the chin with an uppercut, he fell to the ground and was unable to fight.

The announcement of Fury’s retirement had caused a surprise before the fight as pundits and fans alike had hoped for the unification fight against WBA, WBO and IBF world champion Alexander Usyk from Ukraine. However, Usyk must first face dethroned champion Anthony Joshua (Great Britain) for a rematch.

Fury had won the WBC belt in 2020 in the second duel with Deontay Wilder (USA). He rose to fame in 2015 when he surprisingly pushed WBA, IBF and WBO world champion Wladimir Klitschko from the heavyweight throne after more than eleven unbeaten years.

Subsequently, Fury fell into a deep hole and made headlines for doping and drug crime. In 2016 he returned all of his belts before making a big comeback in 2018.
