Tyson Fury announces his retirement following victory over Dillian Whyte

Dillian Whyte claims Tyson Fury’s fight-winning shot was followed closely by an “illegal”They were defeated by shove

In the final seconds of the sixth round, Whyte was knocked out by Fury’s uppercut. However, Fury also pulled his opponent back and he fell to the ground. Whyte claimed that the move caused him to fall to the floor and that he should have had time to recover.

“The uppercut landed; I was buzzed but as I was trying to gather my senses he full on shoved me and I fell over and hit my head on the canvas which is illegal,” He told Sky Sports. “This isn’t wrestling, this is boxing, but as usual, they let Fury do what he wants and get away with it.

“I should have been allowed more time to rest and then continue fighting. He pushed me, and said to him: “Don’t let this fight go on.” The referee is not doing what he should.

“I was trying to get my senses and he fully two-handed pushed me and I fell over and hit my head. It was a terrible job from the referee. I should have had time to recover and have time to go back to my corner. Tyson Fury gets away with a lot of things; he said he wants to retire but i hope he doesn’t retire because i want another go.”

Fury was the dominant fighter from the beginning bell, while Whyte tried to catch up to his elusive opponent. He won a second defense of his belt and was in control on all three cards.

Fury claimed he would now be retiring, but Whyte said he plans to continue. “I’m not one of those guys who wants to go out on a loss or a bad performance,”He added. “I’m still young enough and I’ve got a lot left in me. I’m still getting better; I’ve fought the best in the world and I wasn’t outclassed. I landed my fair share of leather and he landed his.

“It would have been time for me to quit if I was beaten up for more than four or five rounds. However, it wasn’t a long journey back since I proved my worth. One fight, and I’m back.”
