Truth behind Whytes tooth going flying after Furys sickening uppercut
Promoters have confirmed that Dillian Whyte didn't lose a tooth during his bout with Tyson Fury on Saturday evening.
Initial reports had suggested that Whyte had lost a tooth thanks to the brutal uppercut that dropped the Body Snatcher to the canvas. However, they have been debunked after promoters confirmed to the media that Whyte didn't lose his tooth during the bout.
Videos had emerged of what appeared to be a tooth flying from the mouth of Whyte after being hit. The Body Snatcher did have to receive stitches as a result of a cut suffered during the bout, but he didn't need a trip to the hospital.
Daily Express journalist Ryan Taylor tweeted: "Told Dillian Whyte has had stitches but didn’t go to hospital. Also didn’t lose a tooth, as some have suggested."
A Twitter account under the name 'Dillian Whyte's Tooth' had been set up after fans joked it had been sent into orbit as a result of the brutal blow. The account joked: "All, I am proud to say I have finally landed in Southampton. What a journey."
