Fury dedicates victory to England

Tyson Fury: ‘I first want to dedicate this victory to Jesus and ALL MY ENGLAND’.

He thanks the 94,000 spectators and television viewers. He also talks about Whyte as a “champion” who has “the heart of a lion” but who “faced the best in the world”.

The belt stays with Fury

He will talk: we will know if he really hangs up the gloves or not

IT’S OVER ON A PHENOMENAL KO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

whyte can’t touch

All of Fury’s art of dodging, which is in addition to absolute patience. Whyte’s hook? Pff nothing at all, it goes air-hook and Fury takes his opponent to the ropes

Fury Advantage

This round may mark a turning point: we clearly saw a great acceleration from Fury and the gap is starting to widen. With in particular a blow to the liver and a left-right sequence that hurt

Fury ramps up

Always speaking of course. But that’s it, the blows are accelerating and Whyte does not seem able to reply

Start of the 5th round

We still have the right to a small warning from the referee, who asks for “a clean fight”

Fury’s raised point

Yes yes already. Well he is less flamboyant than against Wilder but the defending champion touches and hurts his opponent

The referee gets annoyed

He struggles to separate the two men in the corner – where it’s very strong by the way – and he places a second warning to the two men

whyte in trouble

The challenger seems to be in pain and struggling to catch his breath

Fury starts talking

A great classic with him. He places a left-right which hurts a little and he speaks. We don’t really know if it’s Whyte or the referee but he’s talking

4th round

We get closer and we almost go hand-to-hand. Whyte knows it: he must get closer to try to touch Fury and his extension of mad man

Fury getting more and more comfortable

And it’s starting to touch Fury’s side a bit, who’s taken his glare and activated his footwork

Beginning of the 3rd round

And we go back to the same strategy: Whyte comes to get Fury trying to take him to the ropes

We already have the strategy

Whyte wants to light up the fight and Fury masters it, with his unrivaled boxing IQ

Attack of Whyte

So far it’s not really going and Fury is trying to regain some distance but he’s the most offensive challenger so far

Round 1: we settle down quietly

120kg for Fury, 114 for Whyte. Fury is taller and has more reach

Fury attempts a right

First right posed by Fury who is not far from passing. The champion is patient and Whyte tries in vain to respond to the liver

We lay the foundations

Come on, let’s put the fight with a little distance. Fury white shorts, Whyte black shorts. It is the challenger who first tries to enter his opponent

Let’s go !!!!!

Beginning of the first round and we have chills!

We start with the anthem

God save the Queen sung by all Wembley

Totally crazy atmosphere!

Wembley is on fire, Tyson Fury has his throne and is settling in, it’s madness at Wembley!
