Fury confirmed his intention to resign immediately after the fight. “I promised my beautiful wife Paris that it would be over after this fight. And I meant it,” Fury said.
For Fury, it was the 32nd victory in the 33rd professional duel, with an additional draw, the man from Manchester is still undefeated. Fury’s former sparring partner Whyte, meanwhile, suffered a third defeat in the 31st game.
Most fans at Wembley Stadium were behind Fury, who was more active after the pompous show at the start of the match without dominating him.

Fury’s announcement of retirement caused a pre-match surprise, as scientists and fans hoped for a unifying fight against WBA, WBO and IBF world champion Alexander Usyk of Ukraine. However, Usyk must first face down champion Anthony Joshua (UK) and retaliate.
Fury won the WBC belt in 2020 in a second duel with Deontay Wilder (USA). He became famous in 2015, when, surprisingly, after more than eleven years without defeat, he deposed WBA, IBF and WBO world champion Wladimir Klich from the throne of heavyweight.
Then Fury sank into a deep hole and made headlines with doping and drug offenses. He returned all his belts in 2016, before making a big comeback in 2018.
