Tyson Fury begged the referee to save Dillian Whyte from further punishment
The Londoner did beat the count and get back to his feet in front of 94,000 fans at Wembley.
But his legs betrayed him, and he stumbled before Lyson who had an easy decision to wave it off.
Just before that, Fury was seen shouting “no” as Lyson prepared to make his decision.
Thankfully there was no way the Body Snatcher was in any position to continue.

And it is not the first time Fury has pleaded with a referee to end one of his fights.
The undefeated boxer did the same in 2014 when he battered Derek Chisora into submission.
Chisora had already lost his British and Commonwealth belts to the Gypsy King back in 2011.
But that did not stop him from taking a rematch against Fury three years later.

The two men were battling for a potential title shot at Wladimir Klitscho on the line.
But Fury completely dominated Chisora for ‘ten agonising rounds’ at the Excel in London.
According to talkSport, the Gypsy King at one point even asked ref Marcus McDonnell to stop the fight in order to end his rival’s misery.
Finally, it was Chisora’s former trainer Don Charles that stopped the beating after the tenth as he removed the gum shield from his man.
