Frank Warren, Tyson Fury promoter: “If it’s his last fight, it’s his choice. If he makes it on this fight, it’s just fantastic, an incredible performance. It’s the best of his generation .”
Fury confirms retirement
Tyson Fury: “I thank my wife Paris, 14 years that we are together. I had the public to fight at Wembley, I did it. And it’s over.”
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
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
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!
And now…Tyson Fury!
