Fury poses with new boxing belt that was introduced for Dillian Whyte fight
Tyson Fury added a new belt to his collection after a brutal knockout victory over Dillian Whyte on Saturday night. A jam-packed Wembley Stadium was treated to a masterclass from the Gypsy King as he secured a comprehensive victory in the sixth round.
In typical Fury fashion, he serenaded the record 94,000 in attendance before posing for photos, which included some new hardware. Fury beamed for the camera while holding his WBC Heavyweight and lineal belts, as well as the 'Union belt', the white one on his shoulder.
He was awarded the one-off belt as two British fighters were competing, and it was even more fitting that the bout took place on St.George's Day. Fury was able to keep Whyte at arm’s length for the majority of the fight and was comfortable defending his opponent’s limited offence.
During the fourth round, the fight threatened to descend into chaos. The pair exchanged words in the ring after Fury was angered by Whyte during a clash of heads.
After they were separated, the Body Snatcher landed a punch that left his opponent bad-tempered. Boos rang around the stadium as referee Mark Lyson spoke at length with the two boxers in an attempt to stop the bout becoming a mess.
Fury re-focused and waited for the perfect opportunity to strike. He did just that and Whyte, who has been stung with vicious uppercuts in the past, caught a stiff one from Fury and was sent tumbling to the mat.
Do you think this is really the end of Tyson Fury's career? Let us know in the comments section.
He stumbled back to his feet but was unable to stay upright and the official had no choice but to call an end to proceedings. The Mancunian claimed the outstanding punch is the last one he will ever throw in a professional fight.
Fury said to the adoring Wembley crowd: "I think Lennox Lewis would be proud of that right uppercut! 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."
He later added: "This might be the final curtain for the Gypsy King," despite the prospect of a mouth-watering unification bout with the winner of the Oleksandr Usyk vAnthony Joshuarematch. That fight has been provisionally scheduled to take place in July. But if he has indeed contested his last fight, what a way for Fury to end a truly fantastic career.
