Watch Tyson Fury beg referee to end Dillian Whyte fight after he floors rival with savage uppercut

TYSON FURY begged referee Mark Lyson to save Dillian Whyte from further punishment just seconds after flooring his opponent.

The Gypsy King retained his WBC heavyweight world title with a stunning uppercut KO on Whyte in the sixth round.

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.



Fury arrived draped in a St George’s cross gown, for the patron’s day, with a handful of towels wrapped around his shoulders, making his 6ft 9in, 19st frame look even more imposing.

In a huge shock it was Whyte and not switch-hitting Fury who started in the unfamiliar southpaw stance.

The Brixon Body Snatcher aimed lead right hooks at Fury’s torso and he replied with right hands into Whyte’s high guard.


Whte reverted to his orthodox stance for the second and threw his first huge right haymaker, missing Fury by miles and almost demolishing the ring by crashing his shot into the ropes.

Fury threw the more accurate shots, Whyte caught most of them but couldn’t land his trademark counters.


Fury scored points with a couple of lead left hooks and made the crowd whoop with a double-jab-right-cross.

Whyte was always marching forward but Fury was tagging him expertly on the backfoot. The 13lbs Fury had trained off since the final magnificent Deontay Wilder win was helping him dance around the outskirts of the ring once again, like the 2015 glory days when he dethroned Wladimir Klitschko.


There was a crunching clash of heads at the very start of the fiurth and respoected ref Mark Lyson had to warn them both.

Whyte landed his first clubbing left hook but then had a heavyweight wrestle and the little official was brave to get in between almost 40st of raging bull.


Fury’s trainer Sugar Hill Steward told his man to dance and jab in the fifth and avoid the roughhousing.

Whyte seemed to wobble from a left hook but he looked at the canvas like he was searching for divot and laughed it off.

Fury then cracked in a one-two that almost definitely hurt the former kickboxer and he started to use the better body blows.


Fury was bouncing and moving between clever attacks, his love handles rippling with his flow.

Then there was a ten second warning for the end of tehe round and Fury detonated a magnificent uppercut for the ages.

The Brixton man collapsed and bravely tried to beat the count but he was sprawling and crawing against the tide and the referee rightly waved it off to save him.
