The WBC Champion Tyson Fury showcased an incredible performance to defeat Dillian Whyte at Wembley last night to defend his title. His brutal uppercut at the end of the sixth round finished off the ‘Body Snatcher.’ Tyson’s wife, Paris Fury was ringside when his husband picked up the huge win. She took to her Instagram story section and posted a picture that was taken in the dressing room.
“Makeup finished almost time to leave and…”

Tyson Fury announced’hybrid’ fight with UFC heavyweight champ Francis Ngannou
Fury has repeatedly suggested last night’s fight would be the final one of his astonishing boxing career. He remains unbeaten with a stunning record of 32-0-1 but vowed in a promise to Paris to hang up his gloves. Fury said:
“I promised my wife Paris and I meant it.
“I had the trilogy with Deontay Wilder and she wanted me to retire then.
“But then I was offered this and I owed it to the fans and everyone at home in the UK.
“I have to be a man of my word so this might be the last fight.
“Thank you United Kingdom.”
After retaining his WBC heavyweight title against challenger Dillian Whyte via sixth-round TKO, Fury brought UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou out from the stands to announce a fight against the mixed martial artist. As Ngannou put it during an interview with ESPN:
“We are going to find out who the baddest motherf***er on the planet is.”
It seems that ‘The Gypsy King’ plans to instead change gears after a 32-0-1 boxing career that ended with the WBC belt, thanks to a pair of victories over Deontay Wilder. Ngannou captured the UFC heavyweight title in March 2021 with a win over Stipe Miocic and has retained it once, against Ciryl Gane in January. The fight won’t be a straight boxing match, or MMA match, though. As the pair vaguely described it, we can expect a sort of “hybrid” match, with MMA gloves in a boxing ring with no weight limits.
ESPN: “Will we see it in the Octagon or will see it in the ring?”
Fury: “This is going to be one very special fight, like never before seen in the history of our sport. We’re not talking about two light guys. I’m 270, he’s 270 pounds. It’s going to be an explosive fight when it happens.”
Ngannou: “It’s going to be a hybrid fight with a different type of rules. MMA gloves in the ring, make something a little different.”
