Fresh from his fantastic trilogy fights with Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury returned to the ring for a heroic welcome at Wembley Stadium. The 94,000 people in attendance witnessed what was perhaps the Gypsy King’s last dance.
Fury knocked out Dillian Whyte in the 6th round with a devastating right hook. Whyte managed to get up but stumbled into the corner and referee Mark Lyson waved it off at the 2:59 mark of the round.
After the fight, Fury reflected on his legendary unbeaten career and it seems he’s content to be retiring from the sport at this point.
“Now everything is done, I have to keep my word. I think it is, it could be the final curtain for The Gypsy King and what a way to go!” Fury told fans at Wembley Stadium.
It’s not clear where Fury will rank among the all-time heavyweights in boxing history. Because right now, he’s without question the best heavyweight in the sport today.
