LONDON – World heavyweight champion Tyson Fury defended his WBC title with a stoppage in the sixth round against compatriot Dillian Whyte in front of a crowd of more than 94,000 at Wembley Stadium on Saturday.

A right uppercut from Fury sent Whyte to the canvas and the champion raised his right hand in celebration. Whyte got up and tried to show he was ready to continue, but then he staggered, prompting the referee to call off the fight.

Fury played with Whyte for a fairly low-key fight, with Whyte – the long-time mandatory challenger – mostly reckless with some big, wayward shots.

It was a 32nd win for the undefeated Fury, who was defending his WBC belt for the second time and talked about retiring at the age of 33. Tyson Fury KO’s Dillian Whyte retains heavyweight title
