Tyson Fury stops Dillian Whyte, pauses retirement talk to hype potential UFC-boxing bout

8 mins read


Tyson Fury’s promoter Bob Arum watched his fighter turn in a heavyweight title defense for the ages Saturday. Fury, 33, delivered a vicious uppercut to score a sixth-round technical knockout of countryman Dillian Whyte in front of 94,000 at England’s Wembley Stadium. 

And for all of Fury’s declarations that he would leave the sport following this bout, Arum knows there’s no way a fighter can walk away after thriving through a moment like that. 

“No, he definitely won’t retire. Of course not. Are you crazy?” Arum told USA TODAY Sports+ minutes after Fury improved to 32-0-1 with 23 knockouts in the one-sided triumph.
