Damning Footage Proves Dillian Whyte's Head Didn't Bounce Off The Canvas AT ALL After 'Illegal' Push

A slow motion replay of Dillian Whyte hitting the canvas after being knocked out by Tyson Fury proves he didn't make enough contact with his head for substantial damage.


'The Gypsy King' successfully defended his WBC heavyweight title at a packed out Wembley Stadium on Saturday evening.

Whyte has since claimed the sixth-round uppercut wasn't as damaging as the 'illegal' shove to the ground, which he believes he should've been given time to recover from.


Reddit user u/Zealousideal_Bend955 decided to share a video that busts Whyte's alibi. Check it out below.

'The Body Snatcher' does indeed come down hard on the ground, but it's on his shoulder rather than his head.

He turns to lay on his back which is minimal force to his head.


Referee Mark Lyson allowed Whyte to return to his feet, but a stumble into the ropes saw Fury named winner.

Fury dominated most of the bout and was ahead on all three judge's scorecards.

Things did get ugly and the duo clashed heads, which saw them square up to one another.

Lyson had to get a hold of the contest and a drink appeared to be thrown from Fury's corner.


The 33-year-old announced he intends to retire from boxing in his post-fight interview, but many are unsure if he'll stick to that.

Even his wife, Paris, believes he could be drawn back in to unify the division in a blockbuster fight with WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk.

Whyte is hoping he doesn't as he wants another shot at his former sparring partner.


"He said he would retire. I hope he doesn't retire, because I want another go," Whyte told Sky Sports.

"He said you're a good fighter, a true warrior, you're going to be a world champion. I'm not a sore loser. You win some, you lose some, this is life."

Fury did tease a 'hybrid fight' with UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou.

Both men said they were determined to find out who the 'baddest' man in combat sports is.
