Tyson Fury retained the World Boxing Council (WBC) heavyweight title with a six-round knockout victory over Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium. England.
The challenger showed good things, but the oxygen did not last long and after the third round he fell into the clutches of the monarch, who patiently worked his opponent until he sent him to the canvas. Despite being outclassed, Whyte claimed he received an illegal blow.
“I was buzzed but obviously I was trying to [regain my senses] but he full-on pushed me and I fell over and hit my head on the canvas, which is illegal. This isn’t wrestling, this is boxing. But as usual, they let Fury do what he wants,” Whyte said.
Immediate Rematch – Say’s The Jamaican
The Jamaican doesn’t believe Fury is leaving boxing altogether, he raised his voice once again and called for a second contest with the Gypsy King.
“I hope he doesn’t retire because I want another go,” he said.
Whyte will wait at least six months before returning to the ring, the WBC’s time limit after a fighter loses by knockout.
Fury Head to Head Ngannou
The Cameroonian-Frenchman is recovering from a knee injury, he also has a current contract with UFC, however, his team assured that he will be a free agent in January next year.
“It’s going to be an hybrid fight with different type of rules, MMA gloves but in the ring,” Ngannou explained, “We’ll mix it up and do it a little different.”
“Definitely sometime next year, 2023, that fight will happen, because by the end of this year we will fix it. I’m ready,” Ngannou told BT Sport.
The fight would be with rules from both sports, would be made with 4-ounce mixed martial arts gloves and would take place in a ring and not in the cage, which would make the train wreck more interesting.
