Fury vs. Whyte – the fight in the making
Fury’s retirement plans were in the air as he hinted that he would end his career soon. But many experts believe that Fury might break his retirement if WBC recalls him for a match with Anthony Joshua or Oleksandr Usyk.
In an interview with BT Sport, Fury confessed that he had promised his wife that he would announce retirement after fighting Deontay Wilder. However, when event organizers contacted Fury about Saturday’s fight, he couldn’t refuse.
Fury further explains that he decided to accept the fight as he wanted to thank his fans who have supported him throughout his career, especially in matches held at the iconic Wembley stadium. Fury feels that he owes to all his fans and wanted to take this opportunity to thank his supporters for their undying support.
According to various reports, Joshua or Usyk were the original contenders for the fight. However, due to some negotiation issues, Dillian Whyte got the opportunity to challenge for the WBC heavyweight title.

As the match progressed
After receiving loud cheers from the fans, both boxers entered the ring passionately to deliver the best. While Dillian Whyte had accepted the challenge for the final bout, Fury had his reputation under pressure as he wanted to maintain his unbeaten run.

Although Whyte managed to pile some combinations and gave his fans some moments for celebration, the defending champion was far from disturbed. Whyte’s jabs were missing the target, and he failed in most of his attempts to stun the defending champion.
The first round ended without any breakthrough, and many experts insisted that Whyte was a miss-match for the heavyweight title champion. On the other hand, Fury was confident with his approach and led the first round with more points than the challenger.

Fury showcased superior composure over his challenger and continued dominance over the Jamaican-born boxer. Additionally, Fury’s superior reach and size were too much for the “Bodysnatcher” as he failed to break into the defenses of the defending champion.
The 3rd and 4th rounds offered similar results as the challenger looked exhausted while trying his best to make an impact on the scoreboard. However, fans had more on their cards as the match entered the 5th round.
Knockout in the final second
After surviving four rounds and failing to disturb the defending champion inside the ring, Whyte began his offensive with multiple jabs at the defending champion. However, his attempts were futile as Fury’s defenses were far superior to the wild jabs.
On the other hand, Fury had all the answers for Whyte’s offense as he defused it with ease. The defending champion scored a one-two late in the 5th round to move ahead on the points tally, securing the 5th round to his name.
