British boxer Tyson Fury has knocked out Dylan Whyte to retain his WBC and Ring Magazine titles on Saturday night.

The Gypsy King downed Whyte with an uppercut in front of 94,000 spectators at Wembley Stadium.

Victory over Whyte clears Fury for a prospective unification bout against either Oleksandr Usyk or Anthony Joshua.

The duo are set to meet in a rematch in July following the Ukrainian’s IBF, WBO and WBA championship victory in London last year.

However, the unification fight is unlikely to happen as Fury hinted earlier this week that he could hang his gloves after tonight's fight.
