Video: The Vicious Uppercut From Tyson Fury That Shut the Lights Off Dillian Whyte

Once again, it was an uppercut that knocked Dillian Whyte off his feet for the third stoppage loss of his professional boxing career. Tyson Fury emerged victorious inside Wembley as he knocked out Dillian Whyte to unify his WBC heavyweight championship and retain his Ring title in what was his retirement fight. While fans would hope for a boxing return, it won’t be wrong to say that we may have seen the last of The Gyspy King. 

 

Form the let-go, Dillian Whyte showed no sense of urgency or aggression going against one of the most dominant heavyweight boxers of the modern era. While the reach and height disadvantage was evidently on display, Whyte made little to no effort in closing the distance despite keeping him on the back foot for the better part of the entire bout. 

 

Whyte was able to land several significant body shots on Fury, however, he failed to cause any trouble to The Gyspy King, who slowly and steadily, with his quick movement, and a strong lead left, dominated Whyte from the first round to the very finish. 

 

While fans were not really surprised by the stoppage win and expected it, to say nonetheless, it still took everyone by surprise considering Tyson Fury had not thrown even a single uppercut leading up to the one that knocked Whyte off his feet, and for the victory.

Tyson Fury knocks out Dillian Whyte with a vicious uppercut

It’s an interesting story! Uppercuts and Dillian Whyte will always be linked together in heavyweight boxing henceforth. Whyte has suffered three losses in his professional boxing career, and all of those have come via way of an uppercut to close the show. 

 

Whyte’s first loss inside the ring came against Anthony Joshua, who followed a vicious uppercut after a straight to the temple to stop The Body Snatcher.

On the other hand, back in 2020, Alexander Povetkin sent shockwaves in the boxing community after he knocked Dillian Whyte out cold with a brutal uppercut in the sixth round to become the WBC interim heavyweight champion.  While Whyte would go on to avenge the loss and reclaim his interim gold, he failed to unify it against the undefeated Tyson Fury, once again falling prey to an uppercut.
