Tyson Fury Beats Dillian Whyte To Retain WBC World Title

Dillian Whyte waited years as the “next man up” for the WBC heavyweight championship. Whyte’s opportunity finally came on Saturday night in London and the dream opportunity turned into a nightmare as he was badly outboxed by Tyson Fury before being knocked out with a heavy uppercut in the final seconds of the sixth round.

Whyte tried to mix up his game from the jump, coming out in a southpaw stance. The tactics didn’t seem to much bother Fury, as the champion fought his ideal gameplan, sticking to the outside and mixing jabs and lead left hooks with solid work to the body.

As the dominance mounted for Fury, Whyte seemed to get frustrated, leading to several clinches where heads clashed and elbows and rabbit punches were thrown. The referee lost control of the action in Round 4 as the two heavyweights refused to listen to his instructions to break.

Once the action settled back into something resembling a boxing match, Fury went right back to exercising control with his reach advantage, forcing Whyte to take more chances to close distance.

The Fury jab would eventually set up the finishing moment in Round 6 as he followed up a jab with a right uppercut that stunned Whyte and sent him crashing to the canvas.

Whyte beat the count but as he attempted to walk to the referee, his balance was still not there and he stumbled into the ropes, leaving the referee no choice but to waive off the fight at the 2:59 mark of Round 6.

“Listen, Dillian Whyte is a warrior,” Fury said after the fight. “I believe he’ll be a world champion. But I’m one of the greatest heavyweights of all time and unfortunately for Dillian, he had to face me here tonight.”  

“You know, I promised my lovely wife that after the Wilder 3 fight, that fight would be it and I meant it,” Fury said. “But I got offered to fight at Wembley at home and I believed I deserved and owed it [to the fans]. Now it’s all done. I have to be a man of my word and I think this is it. This might be the final curtain of the Gypsy King.”

According to the Sun, the English star is in a state of shock.

While it’s not uncommon for Manchester United players to receive threats, Police are taking this one extremely seriously.

Sniffer dogs and a host of officers were sent to Maguire’s home to investigate, with his young family understandably shaken-up after receiving the threats.

Maguire’s form has nosedived this season and he’s faced heavy criticism from supporters, with many calling for him to be stripped of the captaincy.

The defender was particularly poor during United’s dismal 4-0 defeat to rivals Liverpool at Anfield on Tuesday night, which saw the away fans head for the exit long before the final whistle.
