Tyson Fury hints at retirement after knocking out Dillian Whyte

Tyson Fury has reiterated that he intends to retire from boxing after knocking out Dillian Whyte at Wembley Stadium on Saturday night.

The WBC heavyweight champion nullified any threat that Whyte had to offer before closing the show in the sixth round with a well-timed uppercut, a shot which was not in keeping with the quality of the five previous rounds.

While Fury had dominated the fight, few combinations had landed with the desired effect until he laid out the long-time mandatory challenger, who beat the count without ever looking capable of being able to continue.

Should it prove to be the final punch of Fury's career, it will be a fitting one, and the Morecambe-based fighter has maintained that he intends to hang up his gloves.

Speaking after the clash in North London, the 33-year-old said: "This might be the final curtain for the Gypsy King. I've spent a lot of time on the road. I've been away for a long time. I fulfilled everything I've ever wanted to fulfil.

"I will retire as only the second heavyweight in history, after Rocky Marciano, to retire undefeated. I was unbeatable at this game."

In beating Whyte, Fury moves to 32 wins and one draw, and will seemingly turn down an opportunity to face unified world champion Oleksandr Usyk - who holds the IBF, WBA and WBO belts - or British rival Anthony Joshua.
