As expected, world boxing champion Tyson Fury (33) defended his heavyweight title in what may be the final fight of his career. The Briton defeated compatriot Dillian Whyte on Saturday in a knockout in the sixth round in front of 94,000 spectators at London’s Wembley Stadium. He then confirmed that he would resign – but still talked about a spectacular match in the coming year.
The win means Fury remains WBC champion. “First of all, I want to say that I dedicate this victory to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. In His name I won this battle in my country. In my England. We are Spartans,” Fury said right after the battle. bt sport.
He said he was “overwhelmed by the support. I can not believe that 94,000 compatriots came here to see me. I thank from the bottom of my heart everyone who bought a ticket and was up late to watch this match.”
“Gypsy King” paid his respects to his opponent, who was stopped by the referee after a fall at the end of the sixth round, and predicted a great future for him. “Dillian is a warrior and I believe he will become world champion. He is one of the greatest, unfortunately he had to fight me tonight. You have nothing to do with a mediocre heavyweight you have to do with the best man on the planet. “
Fury wants to stick to his plan to retire from active sports. “I promised my wife after the fight [Deontay] Wilder is over. But I was offered a match at Wembley and I owed it to the fans. Which way to go. “
Tyson Fury: Showdown Against WWE and UFC Stars?
But Showman Fury would not be Fury if he did not keep a back door open: “It could have been the last curtain for the gypsy king,” the 33-year-old said in abundance of emotion after the battle. “I gave boxing 20 years. I let my gray cells knock out, I got powerful blows and cuts,” he stressed. “I deserve to make decisions that are in my best interest.”
Including: Another entry into the WWE, a visit to Cardiff in September (“There’s no way I’ll fight there”) – and a duel with UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou. “He’s on my list for a showdown: in the cage or in the ring, with boxing gloves or UFC gloves,” Fury said. “Everyone wants to see it. He’s a monster, I’m a monster, it would be a battle for titans.” And when? “Definitely sometime in 2023. Tyson Fury vs. Francis Ngannou in Africa. Rumble in the Jungle, Part 2!”
Fury referred to former world champion Floyd Mayweather, who had earned hundreds of millions of dollars in a fight against UFC superstar Conor McGregor and YouTuber Logan Paul. “I want to have fun. I’m an entertainer. That’s what I’m best at.”
But he can also do that in the boxing ring. He has “nothing more to prove,” his wife Paris said bt sport. But she does not rule out another fight either: “I think the only reason Tyson is returning is a rallying cry.
Fury celebrates the 32nd victory of his career
It was Fury’s 32nd victory in the 33rd professional match, with an extra draw. Fury is still undefeated. Fury’s former sparring partner Whyte, meanwhile, suffered his third defeat in the 31st match.
Most fans at Wembley Stadium were behind Fury, who were more active after a pompous walk-on show early in the match without dominating it. When Whyte, who was just a few inches smaller, caught his opponent while the fight had already been interrupted, a fierce word fight ensued between the two rivals.
Referee Mark Lyson threatened to withdraw points from both opponents. The fight took more and more speed, Fury seemed agitated and kept hitting less. When “Gypsy King” hit Whyte on the chin with an uppercut, he fell to the ground and was no longer able to fight.
Fury’s announcement of retirement had caused a surprise ahead of the match, as experts and fans had hoped for the unification match against WBA, WBO and IBF world champion Alexander Usyk from Ukraine. However, Usyk must first face dethroned champion Anthony Joshua (Great Britain) for a rematch.
Fury had won the WBC belt in 2020 in the second duel with Deontay Wilder (USA). He became famous in 2015 when he surprisingly pushed WBA, IBF and WBO world champion Wladimir Klitschko off the heavyweight throne after more than eleven years without defeat. After that, Fury fell into a deep hole and made headlines with doping and drug offenses. In 2016, he gave all his belts back before making a big comeback in 2018.
