Tyson Fury vs. Dillian Whyte Results
Wembley Stadium, Wembley, London, England – 23 April 2022
Tyson Fury retained his WBC, RING & Lineal World Heavyweight Championships of the World with a stunning knockdown of mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium.
In front of a record boxing crowd, Fury established the upper hand right from the off with the crisper work that nullified the bullish intentions of the rugged Londoner.
The fight became a roughhouse at times and referee Mark Lyson was kept busy issuing warnings to both fighters.
Fury began to land more telling blows in the fifth round as Whyte appeared to tire a little in frustration at barely being able to land a glove on the champion.
Then, in the sixth round, Fury unleashed a show stopping right uppercut that snapped into the jaw of Whyte, who fell heavily to the floor. He got up before 10 but was wobbling on his feet and an invitation to walk towards Mark Lyson resulted in him lurching forward, clearly unable to continue.
The official time of the stoppage was 2.59 of round 6.
Tyson Fury said: “First of all, I want to say that as always, I dedicate this to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He gave me the victory again tonight, and I give Him the glory. In the mighty name of Jesus Christ, I won this fight in this country tonight in my lovely, my own, my England!
“I’m overwhelmed with the support. I can’t believe that my 94,000 countrymen and women have come here tonight to see my perform. I just want to say from the bottom of my heart, thank you so much to every single person who bought a ticket here tonight or stayed up late to watch it on TV.
“Dillan Whyte is a warrior. And I believe that Dillian will be a world champion. But tonight, he met a great in the sport. I’m one of the greatest heavyweights of all time. And unfortunately for Dillian Whyte, he had to face me here tonight. There’s no disgrace. He’s a tough, game man. He’s as strong as a bull. He’s got the heart of a lion. But you’re not messing with a mediocre heavyweight. You’re messing with the best man on the planet. And you saw that tonight with what happened.
“As a professional, it was an uppercut. I think Lennox Lewis could even be proud of the right uppercut tonight.
“I also want to say, this man here, Sugar Hill Steward, he made a great fighter. Years ago, used to jib and jab, touch and slide. But you’ve seen me here tonight. Sugar, what a legend you are, mate. You’ve made me the biggest puncher in the heavyweight division, by a mile. This man is the best trainer in all of boxing. He’s better than anybody. We were unbelievable tonight.
“I promised my lovely wife Paris of 14 years that after the Wilder 3 fight, that would be it. And I meant it. We had a war. It was a great trilogy. And I meant that. But I got offered to fight at Wembley at home, and I believe that I deserved—that I owed it to the fans, I owed it to every person in the United Kingdom to come here and fight at Wembley. Now it’s all done. And I have to be a man of my word. And I think this is it. This might be the final curtain for the Gypsy King. And what a way to go out! A big thank you to the United Kingdom!”
Ekow Essuman retained his welterweight title-treble – British, Commonwealth and IBF European – with a decision victory over his challenger Darren Tetley.
In a fight that never really caught fire, what we got was a cagey, nip and tuck encounter that Essuman appeared to edge from around the halfway stage after a decent start from Tetley.
The fight was scored 117-111 and 116-112 x 2.
In a featherweight humdinger, Nick Ball seized the WBC Silver title with a brutal defeat of the far more experienced Isaac Lowe. Referee Victor Loughlin stopped the fight as the towel came in after 1.45 of the sixth round.
From a clinch, Ball spun his opponent into the corner with his head moving outside of the ropes. Ball held off until he was back in the ring and, with no intervention from the referee, unleashed two mighty right hooks that ended the fight.
Ball plonked Lowe onto the canvas in round two via a left hook and Lowe also came off worse in a clash of heads in the following round that resulted in a deep gash above his left eye.
Lowe rallied, knowing time was now against him, but it was Ball who always carried the threat and he is now a champion.
Heavyweight hopeful David Adeleye inflicted a rare stoppage defeat on Central Area champion Chris Healey when a monster left hook and ramrod right hand had the Stockport man out on his feet and referee Chas Coakley stepped in to prevent a canvas filled finish. The fight was stopped after 52 seconds of the fourth round.
Tommy Fury moved himself to 8-0 as a pro with a convincing victory over the previously 10-1 Daniel Bocianski, with Kieran McCann calling a margin of 60-54 over six rounds. Fury felled the Pole with a huge right hand in round five, but the brave Bocianski held on to reach the final bell.
At light heavyweight Karol Itauma made quick work of his Polish opponent Michal Ciach, putting him down twice before referee Chas Coakley had seen enough after 2.27 of the second round.
Early on in the evening, teenage prodigy Royston Barney-Smith made it 2-0 as a pro with a 40-36 victory over Constantin Radoi, scored by referee Kieran McCann.
Kurt Walker won on points over four rounds against Stefan Nicolae
Walker scored a knockdown in round 2 with the bout going the four round distance. Walker remained undefeated with a shutout points victory with a score of 40-35.
