Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte: Date, UK start time, live stream, TV channel for HUGE WBC heavyweight title fight

TYSON FURY knocked out Dillian Whyte with a spectacular uppercut in the sixth round to retain his WBC title at Wembley.

The fight had begun in tentative fashion – before the Gypsy King upped the pace in the half-way mark and then brutally finished the job with distinction.

And despite Fury's retirement plans, the 6"9 machine could be tempted into a nine-figure showdown with the winner of Anthony Joshua or Oleksandr Uysk.

    Fury should return to WWE

    If Tyson Fury does quit boxing, then he should contemplate a glorious return to World Wrestling Entertainment.

    That's the view of the BBC's boxing expert Steve Bunce, who believes the 33-year-old is a born performer.

    He wrote: "Can you imagine him touring the USA with the WWE? It would be like touring with Kiss, the greatest rock band in history.

    "He will be selling out 20,000 arenas every night of the week for a month. It would be incredible.

    "Sure, WWE is choreographed, but you cannot choreograph how you fall from the five-foot-high ring turnbuckle when a guy swings you.

    "You land on your back, head, shoulder – you suffer physically. You do not get hit on the chin like you do in boxing, but it is a brutal sport."

    Fury previously enjoyed a cameo as part of WWE in 2019, eventually defeating Braun Strowman by countout at Crown Jewel following a short feud between the pair.

    Morning, fight fans

    Quits in or even more quids in?

    Tyson Fury insists it's not even a question – he's DEFINITELY retired after dismantling Dillian Whyte  – but there's already talk of a £100million golden goodbye.

    The unbeaten WBC heavyweight champ partied at a country pub yesterday, wearing a jazzy suit as he ate juicy fruit, and sipping low-cal beer after going for a run as he vowed to stay in shape.

    And there's speculation over a nine-figure showdown with the winner of Anthony Joshua's revenge bid against Oleksandr Usyk.

    British boxing legend Lennox Lewis certainly hopes the Gypsy King – the 'best heavyweight in the world' – continues to fight.

    Lewis said of the 33-year-old: “Fury’s at the top of the game… Nothing’s stopping him. 

    “He’s gonna take some time and rest and come back to us.

    “I would understand [if he retires] but I doubt (it). I think he’ll be back in the ring.

    “I believe Fury’s going to want to go for undisputed.”

    The Gypsy King's wife Paris has hinted he could fight on and appeared to mouth 'no chance' when he announced his quit plans.

    Fury himself, though, told a news conference he was 'happy' with his decision to hang up his gloves.

    He admitted he might consider exhibition fights or a WWE bout.

    But he said: "I've fulfilled everything I've wanted to fulfill, and I'm going to retire as the only second heavyweight champion after Rocky Marciano to retire undefeated."

    Fury 'could be tempted by £100m fight'

    Tyson Fury partied at a country pub yesterday just hours after his knock-out win — with rumours of a £100million return to the ring already swirling.

    The Gyspy King, 33, headed for a run first-thing, just hours after beating Dillian Whyte, 34, in front of a 94,000 crowd at Wembley Stadium.

    And showing he plans to stay in shape, he then sipped on a low-cal beer, while wearing a jazzy suit.

    Despite announcing his retirement after claiming victory in the ring, experts said the fighter could pocket the biggest fee in boxing history if he ditched his plans and took on a belt-unifying bout.

    The £100million figure came after wife Paris hinted her man “could” be tempted back to the ring.

    And she appeared to say “No chance” as he announced he was hanging up his gloves.

    Fury wore a dazzling multicoloured outfit as he strode to The Three Horseshoes Pub in the village of Letchmore Heath, Herts, before he was mobbed by adoring fans yesterday.

    The WBC king posed with locals — even cuddling a baby — before nipping inside for a “breakfast of champions” ­ — tucking into pancakes, bacon and fruit.

    He was joined by wife Paris — who earlier posted a social media tribute to her man, hailing him “The greatest ever”.

    Judges all had Fury leading

    All three judges had Tyson Fury winning before he knocked out Dillian Whyte in the sixth round.

    But the trio all differed in their opinion of the bout with one judge giving two rounds to Whyte.

    Judge Juan Carlos Pelayo scored rounds two and three in favour of the Body Snatcher despite Fury landing more punches in both.

    In fact, Whyte failed to land more punches than his opponent in any round, yet Guido Cavalleri also judged Whyte to have won the first round.

    That meant Canadian Robert Tapper was the only judge to score every round 10-9 to the Gypsy King.

    It mattered little in the end as Fury delivered one of the best punches of his career to flatten The Body Snatcher.

    Although Fury landed more than double the punches Whyte managed, the fight did appear to be a closely fought contest.

    Measures were also put in place to ensure fairness amongst the judges – with Brits banned from the judging panel.

    Nevertheless, some boxing fans were perplexed by the scoring with one writing on Twitter: “What’s that middle one Pelaying at?”

    Another added: “Whyte never won a round! It was a demolition job!”

    'The old fat boy can fight'

    Tyson Fury delivered a rousing motivational speech where he urged people to follow their dreams following his victory against Dillian Whyte.

    The Gypsy King defended his WBC heavyweight title in emphatic fashion at Wembley on Saturday night as he stopped the Body Snatcher in the sixth round.

    A brutal uppercut floored the Brixton banger, and despite the 34-year-old bravely beating the count, referee Mark Lyson correctly waved off the bout.

    After extending his unbeaten record to 33 fights, the Manchester United fan once again reiterated his desire to hang up his gloves after promising his wife Paris.

    Speaking in the post-fight press conference, the 33-year-old then discussed the importance of always believing in yourself.

    He also spoke openly about his suicide attempt in 2016 where he drove his Ferrari towards a bridge at 190mph.

    Fury said: "I've been the underdog my whole life, look at me! I'm still the underdog. Look at me! I'm as fat as anything. But the old fat-boy can fight.

    "And you know what it is? No matter how many times people put you down or write you off in life, never pay attention to it because it doesn't mean anything.

    "Because I've proved that as just a normal, normal lucky man, an average Joe, that anything is possible.

    "No matter where you are in your life, how dark of a place you're in – it doesn't get any darker than committing suicide and I was there.

    "To come back to lose all that weight, to lose over ten stone in weight and get back mentally well again and regain the crown jewels in boxing.

    "It's been a fantastic career and you should never let anybody crush your dreams because anything is possible. And I'm definitely proof of that. It's true."

    Lennox hopes 'best heavyweight' Fury carries on

    LENNOX LEWIS says Tyson Fury is “the best heavyweight in the world” and does not want him to retire.

    The three-time world champion watched the Gypsy King defeat Dillian Whyte at Wembley on Saturday night with a brutal uppercut in the sixth round.

    That ensured he retained the WBC heavyweight title and stretched his unbeaten record between the ropes.

    Fury, 33, reiterated afterwards that he would be quitting boxing after the mega £26million-plus payday.

    But the legendary Lewis said: “Fury's at the top of the game, the best heavyweight in the world. Nothing's stopping him. 

    “He's gonna take some time and rest and come back to us.

    “I would understand [if he retires] but I hope he comes back. I doubt [he'll retire], I think he'll be back in the ring.

    “I believe Fury's going to want to go for undisputed.”

    “He's definitely up there in the scope of history, no question."

    Let Deontay fight for my title

    Tyson Fury wants Deontay Wilder to fight for his WBC heavyweight title once he’s retired from boxing.

    The Gypsy King made his second defence of the historic green belt on Saturday night with a stunning knockout of former sparring partner Dillian Whyte.

    Fury, 33, is seemingly preparing for life after boxing and admits he’d to see former foe Wilder fight for the belt once he’s walked away from the sport.

    He told Behind The Gloves: “I’d like to see Deontay Wilder fight whoever for it again.

    “I don’t know how that’s [Wilder being No.1 in the WBC rankings] even possible. He’s lost three fights in a row and still No.1-rated.

    “But that’s up to them.”

    Three wrongs don't make it Whyte

    Dillian Whyte's three professional losses have all come courtesy of the same punch – a vicious uppercut, writes CHISANGA MALATA.

    Whyte's dream of becoming a world champion was shattered on Saturday night by a hellacious right uppercut from Tyson Fury in the sixth round of their domestic dust-up at Wembley.

    The Brixton Body Snatcher somehow managed to beat the count but referee Mark Lyson wisely called a halt to proceedings after seeing him wobble on his feet.

    Fury perfectly timed the uppercut, which Whyte has been susceptible to throughout his career.

    Whyte's tendency to dip his head into uppercut range cost him dearly in his first fight with former world title challenger Alexander Povetkin in August 2020.

    The Russian timed Whyte's head movement in the fifth round and cracked him with a lethal left uppercut that separated him from consciousness before he even hit the canvas.

    The uppercut also proved to be Whyte's undoing in his grudge match with Anthony Joshua in December 2015. But unlike against Fury and Povetkin, he was initially just badly dazed.

    After rocking Whyte with a big right hand in the seventh round, AJ unloaded a barrage of vicious shots to try and close the show. Whyte weathered most of the storm but ended up being drilled with a big uppercut through the guard that sent him crashing into the canvas.

    Tyson celebrates at TOWIE hotspot

    Tyson Fury continued the celebrations after his brilliant win over Derek Whyte by breaking out the bubbly at a TOWIE hotspot this afternoon.

    The boxing icon was joined by his wife Paris – who pal Carl Froch claimed is pregnant again – brother Tommy and a host of family and friends at Sheesh Restaurant in Chigwell, Essex.

    Decked out in a jazzy pair of multi-coloured trousers and jacket, white shirt and black hat, the Gypsy King was spotted raising a glass of bubbly along with Paris.

    The video footage shared by the establishment and his boxing pal Ty Mitchell on social media then showed the 33-year-old heavyweight champ on a video call to Eddie Hearn – Anthony Joshua’s Matchroom promoter.

    And even TOWIE actor Mark Wright was joining in the fun and games in his local joint.

    It seems the party is not stopping for the much-loved star after he enjoyed a breakfast of champions earlier following his brilliant world title defence.

    Froch dig at 'empty seats'

    Carl Froch could not resist a sly dig over the attendance at last night’s Tyson Fury versus Dillian Whyte fight while referencing the 80,000 that watched him face George Groves.

    The Gypsy King beat the Body Snatcher via knockout with a brutal uppercut in the sixth round at Wembley last night.

    Fury, 33, is adamant that he is retiring from the ring now – although there are still several bouts that could entice him back into action.

    But if that is the final chapter, then he ended his career with a massive payday in front of a record crowd at the national stadium.

    However, the former unified super middleweight champ Froch was unable to resist referencing that he once boxed in front of 80,000 at Wembley too while working as a pundit for the event.

    That was when he battled Groves in a rematch back in 2014 – and he was not convinced that Fury’s win attracted the reported 94,000 crowd. Froch won that bout by KO and then retired, but he still regularly talks about it at every opportunity.

    And during an appearance on BBC Breakfast news yesterday the interviewer asked him: “It is such a big moment, isn’t it, for British boxing?” To which Froch replied: “Absolutely, this is a massive moment. And what an occasion.

    “I don’t know if you know, but I once boxed here in front of 80,000 fans and this stadium, trust me, is an amazing place.”

    And after Fury’s win, he was asked about the 94,000 crowd, to which he told IFL TV: “Did you count them? There were a few empty seats.” That sent Twitter into meltdown, with one person replying: “Carl probably counted them.” Another said: “Classic by Froch!”

    Tyson: There's nothing more I can do

    Tyson Fury also listed a number of his achievements, saying: “By the way, I take a lot of pride in this.

    “I know proud’s not the best thing to be but I’m very proud of… I’ve won two English titles, two British titles, two Commonwealth titles…

    “The Irish title, the European title, WBO intercontinental, WBO international, WBO super, WBA super, IBF, IBO, Ring Magazine, lineal, WBC, WBC global.

    “I’ve won every belt there is to win.

    “There isn’t nothing more I can do. I’ve won every belt in the game.

    “If this was a computer game it would definitely be completed, that’s for sure.”

    Fury revealed that money doesn’t motivate him and won’t tempt him back into the ring, insisting that he is happy driving an 07 Passat.

    Breakfast of champions

    Tyson Fury enjoyed a breakfast of champions as he toasted retaining his heavyweight world title, writes JOSHUA JONES.

    The WBC king put on a masterclass performance to beat Dillian Whyte at Wembley last night.

    His brutal uppercut at the end of the sixth round finished off the Body Snatcher.

    And after a good night's sleep, Fury feasted on pancakes, bacon and fruit.

    He was joined by wife Paris – who is rumoured to be pregnant – as well as brother Tommy and his girlfriend Molly-Mae Hague.

    Dad John was also around the table as well as other pals.

    And they were certainly in the mood to celebrate after a successful night at the home of football.

    As well as Fury's blockbuster finale to dispatch Whyte, Tommy was also victorious.

    He secured a points win over Daniel Bocianski on the undercard at Wembley.

    "No chance", says Paris

    Paris Fury appeared to mouth "no chance" as husband Tyson told Wembley Stadium that he's retiring from professional boxing, says ETIENNE FERMIE.

    The Gypsy King produced a stunning sixth round uppercut to knock out Dillian Whyte and retain his heavyweight titles.

    Fury, 33, subsequently got on the mic – telling the 94,000 fans congregated at Wembley Stadium that this is it for his pro boxing career.

    As he was talking, however, Paris appeared to say "no chance" – potentially letting slip that she doesn't believe it's really the end.

    Alternatively, she may have been saying that there is "no chance" he fights again.

    Tyson told the crowd: "I promised my lovely wife, Paris, of 14 years, after the Wilder 3 fight that would be it and I meant it."

    Body shot to the Body Snatcher

    Tyson Fury may have won Saturday night's heavyweight showdown against Dillian Whyte with a stinging right uppercut, but a brutal left hook also left The Body Snatcher wounded, writes GIACOMO PISA.

    The Gypsy King revealed he spoke to Whyte in the ring after landing a bruising shot to his midriff.

    Fury then revealed he couldn't help but whisper in Whyte's ear after landing a particularly meaty left hook to his body.

    He continued: "The one thing that amazed me was I clipped the Body Snatcher with a left hook to the body.

    "And I went 'You're hurt Body Snatcher aren't you?' and he went 'Yeah'".

    Victory in front of 94,000 fans at Wembley was a 32nd win of Fury's career, and maintained his unbeaten record as a professional.

    "You know why? I'm not just being pompous or arrogant… 6ft 9in frame. 275lbs weight.

    "Can move like a middleweight. Can hit like a thunderstorm. I can take a punch like… anybody else.

    Paul on Fury's show

    According to MMA journalist Ariel Helwani, Jake Paul was less-than impressed with what he saw from Tommy Fury, writes JOHN HUTCHINSON.

    The social media star reportedly said: “Congrats on beating a 10-1 fighter. But that stadium was empty.

    "When I fight the stadium is full. When Tommy fights no one gives a f***. And that’s in his home country."

    Fury could have done with stopping Bocianski to send a more powerful message to Paul.

    But the Pole took some hefty punishment to take it to the referee's scorecard.

    Fury calls out Jake Paul

    Tyson'sbrother Tommy Fury called out "bum" Jake Paul to "sign the contract" to finally fight inside the boxing ring.

    Just minutes after the former Love Island star easily outpointed Daniel Bocianski over six rounds on brother Tyson's undercard, he switched his attention to YouTuber Paul.

    The two were set to fight this year after months of goading on social media – but it all fell through when Tommy picked up a chest infection and injured a rib.

    Paul scoffed at Fury's excuses, and blasted the 22-year-old for missing out on a career-high payday.

    But Mollie-Mae's other half is refusing to give up on dreams of settling his beef with Paul.

    He told BT Sport: "Jake Paul, this should have been done a long time ago.

    "If you want it I am here and ready for you. I will cut you and chop you to bits, just like I did there.

    "Just get the contracts signed, you bum, let's get it done once and for all."

    Fury vs Ngannou – will it happen?

    Ngannou is currently embroiled in a contract dispute with the UFC brass and has turned down a bumper new deal from the MMA promotion.

    The Cameroonian-born Frenchman – whose contract with UFC expires in December – wants the freedom to box in addition to a pay rise.

    Ngannou is set to miss the remainder of the year after going under the knife last month to have an ACL reconstruction and an MCL repair.

    And he's confident a fight with Fury will materialise next year, telling BT Sport: "Definitely sometime next year. 2023.

    "That fight will happen!"

    "Because by the end of the year, to know exactly [where I stand], we're going to sort it and get settled and ready to go."

    He added: "Tyson Fury vs Francis Ngannou in Africa, that would be the best one. The Rumble in the Jungle 2!"

    Fury's American promoter Bob Arum is confident of making the crossover clash.

    He told boxing reporter Lance Pugmire: "I don't know what this guy's contract situation is with the UFC.

    "Obviously, it's a massive fight and it should be easy to make since both Tyson and [Ngannou] are with ESPN."

    'Warrior' Whyte will be a world champion, says Fury

    Dillian Whyte – The Body Snatcher – was knocked out by a sensational sixth round uppercut from the Gypsy King during the sixth round of their world heavyweight title encounter.

    He had managed to clamber to his feet following Fury's stunning uppercut, but the fight was waved off as he stumbled towards the referee.

    Whyte required stitches after the bout, but did not have to go to hospital.
