New footage of Tyson Fury's KO dismisses Dillian Whyte's claims he smashed head on canvas after being pushed by rival

A NEW video of Tyson Fury's knockout of Dillian Whyte contradicts the Body Snatcher's claim he smashed his head on the canvas after going down.

Whyte, 33, was knocked out in the sixth round of his bout against the heavyweight world champion.


He has since complained about the refereeing of Mark Lyson, claiming he was pushed down by Fury after the Gypsy King landed a powerful uppercut.

That punch was enough to end the contest but Whyte argued he was unable to continue because his head hit the canvas hard as he got dropped.

But footage shows no contact between Whyte's head and the ring floor was ever made – and therefore Fury's push after landing the uppercut was inconsequential.

In response to seeing the new footage one social media user wrote: "Honestly, I really didn't expect this from Dillian (Whyte). He really should have been less vocal in the past because he looks silly with these excuses."

Another added: "It’s like nobody can stand the fact they got knocked out by an egg-shaped fat man. That’s why Fury opponents always making excuses."

A third said: "One of the worst excuses I’ve seen from a fighter."

The reaction of fans came in response to Whyte airing his complaints about the end of the fight earlier this week.

He told Sky Sports: "The uppercut landed, I was buzzed, but when I was trying to regather my senses he proper, full on pushed me like that.

"I fell over and hit my head on the canvas, which is illegal, this is not wrestling, this is boxing.

"But I should have been allowed extra time to recover and then carried on fighting.

"Then he pushed me and went to the referee, 'Don't let the fight carry on'. It's like the referee ain't doing his job.

"OK, I got caught, no doubt about that, good shot, I went for the left uppercut, he went for the right uppercut, he's a bit taller than me.

"He landed his at range, obviously I was hurt but I didn't go straight down, I was hurt and trying to get my senses together and then he full on, two handed pushed me.

"It wasn't like one-armed, he two-handed pushed me, I fell over and hit my head. Terrible job from the referee there. But it is what it is.
