The scorecard from Tyson Fury’s stunning victory over Dillian Whyte has been revealed, with one judge suggesting the contest was much closer than first anticipated.

Fury retained the WBC title against mandatory challenger Whyte on Saturday at Wembley Stadium in front of a sell out 94,000 spectator crowd.

Both Robert Tapper and Guido Cavalleri scored favourably towards Fury, scoring 50-45 and 49-46 respectively.

However, Juan Carlos Pelayo suggested that Whyte was in contention until the lightning fast knockout from Fury, with the Mexican scoring the fight 48-47 in favour of the eventual winner.

The Gypsy King won with a powerful uppercut in the sixth round which knocked Whyte out. He tried to recover, but referee Mark Lyson called time on the bout.

Fury even asked the referee to stop the fight after the knockdown as he was concerned for his opponent’s wellbeing.

He said: “I was happy with Mark Lyson, he did a fantastic job, if he had allowed it to continue and me to storm into him and hit him with two or three more then he may have been in some serious trouble. So, a big shout out to the ref. He made the right call there. I would have had to pile on to him again and hurt him, and I didn’t really want to do that.”

Fury also confirmed that this would be his last professional fight.

He said: “I’ve won every belt there is to win, there isn’t more that I can do. I’ve won every belt in the game, if this was a computer game, I would’ve completed it.”

He has, however, alluded to a potential fight against current UFC champion Francis Ngannou.

Fury stated: “I will not rule out exhibitions, I want to have fun. Francis Ngannou was here today, he’s on my hit list in an exhibition fight. I think everyone wants to see it. He’s a monster of a guy.”
