Fury knocks out Whyte and retains the title

World heavyweight champion Tyson Fury retained his WBC title after knocking out fellow Briton Dillian Whyte in six rounds in front of more than 94,000 spectators at London’s Wembley Stadium.

A right hand uppercut from Fury sent Whyte to the canvas and the champion raised his right arm in celebration. Whyte got to his feet and tried to show that he was ready to go, but he stumbled and the referee stopped the fight.

Fury toyed with Whyte for much of the close fight, in which Whyte, the official challenger for several months, was reckless and hit inaccurately.
