Fans Genuinely Can't Believe The Scorecards For Fury Vs. Whyte At The Time Of The Stoppage

Boxing fans were left stunned by the judges' scorecards for Tyson Fury vs. Dillian Whyte at the time of the stoppage and you can see why. 

The scorecards for the WBC world heavyweight bout have been revealed following Fury's sensational knockout victory over Whyte on Saturday.

All three judges had the 'Gypsy King' winning the fight at the time of the stoppage, but one official inexplicably had 'The Body Snatcher' down by just ONE round. 

Mexico’s Juan Carlos Pelayo​ scored the first five rounds 48-47 to Fury, scoring two rounds for the WBC challenger. 

Canada's Robert Tapper had Fury winning every round before the stoppage while Italy​'s Guido Cavalleri had the defending champion up 4-1.​

Needless to say, fight fans slammed Pelayo​'s questionable scorecard on social media. 

One Twitter user joked: "Pelayo must be on Eddie Hearn's payroll​."

A second tweeted: "Cavalleri and Pelayo must have been watching the snooker on their phones and certainly not the fight."

A third added: "Only possible round for Whyte is the 1st, even then it’s Fury’s round. Atrocious judging from Pelayo."​​

A fourth commented: "48-47?! What fight was he watching?"​


​Fortunately for Fury, he left the result out of the judges' hands as he spectacularly stopped Whyte with a brutal uppercut. 

He timed a superb shot that floored Whyte, who failed to recover - with referee Mark Lyson halting the contest. 

Speaking after the fight, Fury suggested he will retire following the second defence of his green and gold belt.

"This might be the final curtain for the Gypsy King," the 33-year-old said in his post-fight press conference. 

He added: "I've spent a lot of time on the road. I've been away for a long time. I fulfilled everything I've ever wanted to fulfil.

"I will retire as only the second heavyweight in history, after Rocky Marciano, to retire undefeated. I was unbeatable at this game."
