Tyson Fury vs Whyte LIVE: Result as Fury knocks out Whyte at Wembley

Follow all the fallout from Fury vs Whyte at Wembley Stadium

Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte face off at weigh-in

Tyson Fury retained the WBC heavyweight title with a stunning knockout of Dillian Whyte on Saturday night, remaining unbeaten by stopping his challenger in the sixth round at Wembley Stadium.

A crowd of 94,000 had gathered in the London venue to watch one of the biggest clashes in the history of British heavyweight boxing, and both fighters received plenty of cheers as they made their entrances for the main event – though Fury, 33, was clearly the fan favourite for those in attendance. The “Gypsy King” entered the fight undefeated and emerged the same way, improving his record to 32-0-1 (23 knockouts), while handing Whyte the third loss of the Jamaican-born Londoner’s professional career.

Fury had looked the sharper fighter all throughout the bout as Whyte, 34, struggled to manage range. The challenger was jabbing from too great a distance and missing with wild overhand rights as he looked to get closer to the champion. Late in the fifth round, Fury stung Whyte with a one-two. One round later, it was all over. Whyte parried a jab but left his right hand high, obscuring his own vision as Fury drilled an uppercut into the “Bodysnatcher”’s jaw. Whyte collapsed to the canvas, and although he beat the referee’s count, the fight was waved off as Whyte fell into the official’s arms. “I think this is it, it might be the final curtain,” said Fury afterwards, having claimed ahead of the event that he would retire. “And what a way to go out”. Follow all the fallout from Fury vs Whyte, below.

More from Fury:

“I also want to say, this man here, Sugarhill Steward, he made a great fighter. Years ago, used to jib and jab, touch and slide, but you’ve seen me here tonight. Sugar, what a legend you are, mate. You’ve made me the biggest puncher in the heavyweight division by a mile. This man is the best trainer in all of boxing. He’s better than anybody. We were unbelievable tonight.

“I promised my lovely wife of 14 years, Paris, that after the Wilder 3 fight, that would be it. And I meant it. We had a war, it was a great trilogy. And I meant that. But I got offered to fight at Wembley at home, and I believe that I deserved – that I owed it to the fans, I owed it to every person in the United Kingdom to come here and fight at Wembley.

“Now it’s all done, and I have to be a man of my word. And I think this is it, this might be the final curtain for the 'Gypsy King'. And what a way to go out! A big thank you to the United Kingdom!”

Here’s what Fury had to say after his win:

“First of all, I want to say that as always I dedicate this to my lord and saviour Jesus Christ. He gave me the victory again tonight, and I give him the glory. In the mighty name of Jesus Christ, I won this fight in this country tonight in my lovely, my own, my England!

“I’m overwhelmed with the support. I can’t believe that my 94,000 countrymen and women have come here tonight to see me perform. I just want to say from the bottom of my heart, thank you so much to every single person who bought a ticket here tonight or stayed up late to watch it on TV.

“Dillan Whyte is a warrior. And I believe that Dillian will be a world champion, but tonight he met a great in the sport. I’m one of the greatest heavyweights of all time, and unfortunately for Dillian Whyte, he had to face me here tonight.

“There’s no disgrace. He’s a tough, game man. He’s as strong as a bull, he’s got the heart of a lion, but you’re not messing with a mediocre heavyweight; you’re messing with the best man on the planet, and you saw that tonight with what happened.

“As a professional, it was an uppercut. I think Lennox Lewis could even be proud of the right uppercut tonight.”
