Champion Tyson fury Against Dillian Whyte Wembley London
The lineal and WBC heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury defend his titles against the challenger Dillian Whyte at Wembley. Whyte would be the thirtieth man to face Fury inside the ring. And like many before, the Londoner was confident he had every chance in the world of beating the reigning champion.
The pair faced off under a London sky at the iconic Wembley stadium. On the night the crowd would set a new European record for a boxing event, maxing out at some 94,000 fans in attendance. And although Fury entered the fight as the bookie’s hot favourite. Others were not quite writing Dillian Whyte off. With the hard-punching Jamaican Brit promising to upset the apple cart and give Fury his first-ever loss.
The man from Brixton south London, originally Port Antonio, Portland, Jamaica. Whyte was an underdog on many of the cards. But with some still fancying his chances, it was all to play for on the night.
Dillian Whyte For The Heavyweight Championship
From the first round, the Gypsy King looked to be the faster man. Landing some nice combinations in the opening rounds. Dillian came out in a southpaw stance which may have surprised and confused Fury at first. With Whyte having his moments, as the round progressed, Tyson began to get into his stride.
As Fury kept his distance and made Dillian stretch for his punches. You could tell the challenger was getting more frustrated by the minute. His game plan not appear to be making progress. We could tell that the fight was beginning to frustrate Whyte. Swinging wildly at his opponent, the challenger looked to be getting increasingly desperate even in these early rounds.
With the champion Fury seemingly leading Whyte around the ring in a bull vs matador type scenario. Dillian’s punches appeared to be consistently missing. While he was landing some decent punches to the body. And big punches to the head were for the most part going well astray. While the champion may be a very large man indeed, he’s delicately light on his feet.
He Cannot Handle The Movement of Tyson Fury
With Dillian Whyte looking increasingly confused and frustrated, Fury began to get into his groove. We can tell with each passing minute that Whyte is not looking for a hail Mary that can hopefully catch Tyson off guard. Missing with some wild punches, punching on the break, the fight is getting rougher and tumble. But maybe that was the game plan for Whyte all along?
With instances where this fight was looking more like a brawl than a boxing match. The frustration of both the fighters and their camps were beginning to boil over. Getting separated by the referee and warned multiple times to clean up their acts. Let’s hope this fight stays on the right path!
Now following a clash of heads, the fighters regroup and the fight continues in earnest. With Tyson peppering Whyte with some solid jabs, he’s keeping the challenger at distance and at bay. That cut over Dillian’s right eye is a worry, but nothing too major to worry about right now.
With the clock ticking down, desperation in the Dillian Whyte camp tells us their man needs to stop Fury to win this fight. Well behind on the scorecards, it’s surely all but impossible for him to win without it? But Dillian keeps pushing forward, keeps trying to close that distance but is made to pay almost each and every time.
Now looking somewhat bemused in the sixth, the pair once again exchange blows before Tyson takes a few steps back. Making some space, with the left hand being held low by Whyte. Fury sneaks in a beautiful uppercut that catches the Whyte totally off-guard. Almost exactly the same punch that he got caught with by Povetkin, he hits the canvas hard!
Climbing gingerly back to his feet, the referee asks him to step forward. Uneasy on his feet, he staggers towards the ropes as the ref waves the fight off. It’s once again the Gypsy Kings night in London. Undefeated, undisputed Tyson Fury once again reigns supreme in the land of heavyweight boxing.
