Undefeated Fury knocks out Whyte in round 6 to retain WBC title
By Oviri Kelvin
Tyson Fury has defeated Dillian Whyte to defend his World Boxing Council (WBC) world heavyweight title in front of over 90,000 fans at the Wembley Stadium to remain unbeaten in 33 bouts.
The Briton in the bout knocked out his challenger in the sixth round to become the latest undisputed heavyweight champion.
In the highly intense contest, Fury, adored as the Gypsy King proved to be better than Whyte with his advantageous height and long jabs.
Fury, dominating the contest as the rounds progressed, caged Whyte at a conclave of the ring in some instances and threw jabs at the boxer who was already becoming weak.
Whyte, however, sustained a head injury from an unexpected headbutt that saw him bleed from his head.
Marca reports that Fury smelled blood and went to the front, broke his opponent’s guard, and punished him with a jab to the body. Jab, jab, jab, the champion kept Whyte where he wanted him, he dominated him, he was ready to hunt. The Trumpet Gathered
Resultantly in the sixth round, the challenger looked tired after missing too many punches that couldn’t get to the WBC champion who at the crucial moment threw a one-punch stoppage to record Dillian’s third defeat in 31 career fights.

Fury after the fight divulged he was going to retire from boxing soon adding that it will be historical to be the second undefeated heavyweight champion after Rocky Marciano.
Fury said, “This might be the final curtain for the Gypsy King.
“I’ve spent a lot of time on the road. I’ve been away for a long time. I fulfilled everything I’ve ever wanted to fulfill.
“I will retire as only the second heavyweight in history, after Rocky Marciano, to retire undefeated. I was unbeatable at this game,” he added.
If Fury’s decision is anything to go by, the 33 years old expected to defend the title in a bout later this year will see him lose the opportunity to become Britain’s greatest ever heavyweight, BBC reports.
