The Body Snatcher attempted to counter Fury’s reach advantage by stepping inside and wrestling with his opponent.
Whyte required stitches after a crunching clash of heads at the start of the fourth round, with Fury accusing Whyte of intentionally headbutting and elbowing him.

“Have you ever tried to wrestle with a dinosaur? I’m like a T-rex in there. I’m 6ft 9, 270lbs. It’s difficult.

“When you try and cheat in a fight, you always come up second best. He went to nut me and got cut.
“He didn’t fight a world champion tonight, I ain’t no world champion. I’m a legend in this game. You can’t deny it I’m the best heavyweight there’s ever been.”
The encounter between Fury and Whyte was a scrappy affair until Fury’s devastating right uppercut at the end of the sixth sent Whyte sprawling to the canvas.
The Body Snatcher managed to get back to his feet, but the fight was waved off as he stumbled into the ropes at the side of the ring.
