Reflecting on his knockout loss to Tyson Fury, Dillian Whyte said he should have had more time to prove he could keep fighting.

Whyte’s long call for the WBC title took place at Wembley in front of around 100,000 fans. After a bizarre buildup, “The Bodysnatcher” finally got his chance against “The Gypsy King.”

He surprised everyone by coming off left-handed in the first round, an attempt to bamboozle the bamboozled, but after the first few minutes the champion started to take control.

It wasn’t Whyte’s best night in the office – as he himself admitted – and pair that with Fury being as controlling and physical as ever, the result started to look written.

An uppercut knocked Whyte down in the sixth and, although he managed to get back to his feet, the referee waved him off as he stumbled slightly into the ropes.

Looking back on Matchroom Boxing’s shutdown, Whyte still doesn’t agree with that – and reveals an injury while hitting the deck.

“I think the fight obviously ended too soon, you know, I got hit with a good shot. It’s boxing, you hurt yourself. I’ve been beaten in fights before and obviously you get back up and obviously got hit with a good shot, pushed me… When he pushed me I ended up twisting two ligaments in my foot .

The Brixton heavyweight then discussed that the knockdown came within 10 seconds of the end of the round, and he believes he should have had time to get back to his corner.

“The boxing board also didn’t follow the rules because if you go down, after the bell they don’t have the right to stop the fight, they have the right to send you to your corner, send the doctor step in if you beat a 10 count. They didn’t even do that, they just stopped the fight, you know, which is a big massive breach.

Either way, Whyte thinks what’s done is done. He returns to the ring this month against the undefeated Jermaine Franklin in a bid to mount another title challenge before all is said and done.
