The tickets for the long-awaited homecoming of the Gypsy King sold out in no time at all and fans were treated to quite a show in the capital.
Fury went into the fight as the overwhelming favourite with few experts giving Whyte much of a chance of causing what would prove to be a massive upset.
It seems the experts were right all along as Fury put on a clinic to extend his unbeaten wrong and carve another victory into hiss incredible heavyweight CV.
Fury showed why he is considered the heavyweight king of the modern generation, underlining his credential with an efficient and ruthless performance to do away with the challenger on a night that saw both boxers become very wealthy men.
Both men tried some cheeky mind games early on, alternating between stances in the opening two rounds but it was Fury who had the best of the early exchanges.
Fury grew into the fight as the rounds went by, slowly but surely picking Whyte apart with relative ease.
It all culminated in a sixth-round knock out for Fury as the Gypsy King reigned supreme in London.
Fury’s perfectly laced uppercut sent Whyte sprawling to the canvas and, despite his best efforts to get up and continue, the referee had no choice but to call it a night.

For Whyte, after years of waiting for his chance, it proved to be a night to forget as he just didn’t have quite enough to cause the upset that some had been hoping for.
The question on everyone’s lips now is what next for Fury? There has been plenty of talk of retirement, but we’d like to think he has his heart set on unifying the heavyweight division by beating Oleksandr Usyk.
