Fury vs Whyte LIVE!

Tyson Fury beat Dillian Whyte with a stunning sixth-round stoppage at Wembley.

After a cautious start to the fight with both fighters, it threatened to boil over in the fourth round when Whyte threw at Fury as the referee called for the pair to break. Both then ignored the referee again, as the corners got increasingly agitated.

It looked like Fury was easing to a sixth straight comfortable round, but he then stepped it up a gear with a sensational right uppercut. It sent Whyte tumbling to the canvas, and while he briefly got up, his legs were not there and the referee quickly waved it off.

Also on the card, Tommy Fury, Tyson’s brother, returned to action for the first time since he pulled out of facing Jake Paul at the end of last year. He won every round of his fight against Daniel Bocianski to extend his record to 8-0. David Adeleye beat Chris Healey, with the referee jumping in midway through the fourth round.

Ekow Essuman defended his belts against Darren Tetley, in a fight that was a late addition to the card.

Isaac Lowe suffered a second consecutive defeat as Nick Ball won the vacant WBC silver featherweight title. Lowe had to contend with an extremely deep cut throughout, with the fight eventually stopped in the sixth round.

Earlier in the night, Karol Itauma and Royston Barney-Smith both extended their unbeaten records.

Report on Fury’s sixth-round stoppage

00:27 , Matt Verri

With a right uppercut, Tyson Fury ended the challenge of Dillian Whyte and, if Fury is to be believed, his own boxing career with a sixth-round stoppage at Wembley Stadium on Saturday night.

Fury had been heavily fancied to defend his WBC heavyweight title, the one caveat that he might be undone by a single punch from the powerful Whyte.

But instead it was his London rival who got caught out, knocked to the canvas having been completely outboxed for the preceding five-and-a-half rounds. Whyte tried to persuade referee Mark Lyson he was ready to fight on, his jelly legs suggested otherwise and the referee had no option but to end the contest.

Legs weren’t there at all...

Fury: I’ve completed boxing

00:01 , Matt Verri

“It’s a been a fairytale few years. It’s been more than I ever dreamed of. I’ve won every belt there is to win.

“If this was a computer game, it would definitely be completed.”

Tyson Fury’s wife Paris gives her reaction

23:56 , Matt Verri

“The world has seen him reach the pinnacle. He’s just proved it again, the top quality that he is.

“I don’t enjoy this one bit. This is great, the celebratory bit. But all the lead-up and actual fight is a horrible situation to be in.

“He’s got nothing else to prove in the whole world.”

23:48 , Matt Verri

Those minutes after the fight as Fury hugged and kissed everyone within sight.

Big night for him on his return to the UK and he certainly delivered. Didn’t ever look in any danger of losing the fight.

All fun and games...

Tyson Fury comes into the press conference and promptly removes his top and flexes his muscles.

Fury keen on Ngannou clash...

23:29 , Matt Verri

“This is going to be one very special fight like never before seen in the history of our sport.”

“We’re not talking two light guys. It’s going to be an explosive fight when it happens.”

23:23 , Matt Verri

Anthony Joshua. Alexander Povetkin. And now Tyson Fury.

It’s certainly a shot that has caused Whyte real problems.

Ngannou wants it!

23:16 , Matt Verri

We’re going to have to check the smallprint of Fury’s retirement plans...

Retiring from fighting boxers, or retiring for good? Ngannou will hope it’s the former.

23:11 , Matt Verri

Is that really it for Tyson Fury?

Got to think there’s only one fight that would bring him back to the ring. One of Oleksandr Usyk or Anthony Joshua will hold all the other heavyweight belts by the end of July.

Undisputed bout either later this year or early in 2023? Let’s hope so!

Picture sums it up

23:05 , Matt Verri

Fury: Whyte will be world champion

23:00 , Matt Verri

“Dillian [Whyte] is a warrior and I believe he will be a world champion. One of the greatest and, unfortunately, he had to fight me tonight. You are not messing with a mediocre heavyweight, you are messing with the best man on the planet.

“This man, SugarHill [Steward], has made the man I am. He has made me the biggest boxer in the heavyweight division.”

Just as well he’s a pretty decent fighter...

The singing seems to be getting worse after every victory, but who cares. Another sensational night for Team Fury.

Full post-fight reaction from Fury

22:49 , Matt Verri

Fury gives verdict on future plans...

22:45 , Matt Verri

“I promised my lovely wife Paris that after the Wilder 3 fight that would be it.

“And I meant it. But I got offered to fight at Wembley, and I believed I owed it to the fans. To every person in the UK.

“Now it’s all done, I have to be a man of my word. This might be it. This might be the final curtain. What a way to go out.”

Whyte could not continue

22:43 , Matt Verri

Fury vs Whyte

22:37 , Matt Verri

Round 6

Another chopping right hand comes in from Whyte, Fury sees it coming and spins his opponent onto the ropes. Gives him a mouthful of advice to go with it.

Whyte still struggling to get within range, Fury continues to pop away with the jab. Whenever Whyte does come in, he’s quickly tied up in a clinch.



Fury vs Whyte

22:33 , Matt Verri

Round 5

Fury backed into the corner but Whyte not too keen to throw anything. He’s wary of getting caught when he tries to close the distance.

Not a huge amount of pace to fight. Whyte stumbles back, but shakes his head. He thinks Fury stood on his foot.

Big right hand to the body from Fury, smile and a nod to go with it. Whyte looks to respond with a huge right of his own, misses by a mile.

WHYTE TAGGED! Fury’s caught him and Whyte’s legs briefly gave way. He just wants to clinch now with 15 seconds to go.

He makes it to the bell, but it’s another round to Fury. He’s boxing really nicely.

Fury vs Whyte

22:28 , Matt Verri

Round 4

Great shot from Fury at the start of the round! Whyte felt that.

TIME OUT. Fury is furious, Whyte took a swing as the referee told the pair to break. That looks to have really irritated Fury.

Whyte gets within range this time and throws the left hook, very nearly lands it. That’s the punch he wants to throw.

Fury’s corner screaming at the referee as the pair clinch again, they think Whyte is leading with the head. Whyte has a small cut to the right eye that he’s starting to wipe, bothering him a bit.

This is starting to get ugly. Referee trying to break it up, but they’re still throwing at each other. The two corners are threatening to get involved with each other too. Any friendliness has swiftly disappeared.

Fury vs Whyte

22:23 , Matt Verri

Round 3

Whyte not showing a lot of patience, he’s throwing the overhand right at every opportunity. Not close to landing one yet.

Nice one-two from Fury, which he backs up with a smirk. He feels in control and he’s not wrong.

Whyte unable to throw much to the body, he’s getting tied up on the rare occasions he gets on the inside.

It’s Fury landing more to the body, he looks so relaxed. Another round for Fury, who has surely taken all three so far.

Fury vs Whyte

22:20 , Matt Verri

Round 2

Fury now boxing southpaw, Whyte back to the orthodox stance we expected.

Fury switching between the two though, he’s just as comfortable doing either. Whyte almost gets himself in a tangle with his feet, not quite moving quickly enough so far.

Whyte looking to jab to the body but he’s so far away he’s struggling to reach. Doubles up the jab this time, again short.

Launches a big overhand right as he shoves Fury back onto the ropes, doesn’t land. Body Snatcher starting to let his hands go. Whenever he gets within range, he’s swinging big.

It’s a better round from Whyte but Fury still largely in control.

Fury vs Whyte

22:15 , Matt Verri

Round 1

Whyte has come out as a southpaw, not sure anyone was expecting that. Fury orthodox in his stance.

It’s Whyte who has centre ring in the early stages, both fighters just feeling each other out and trying to establish the jab.

Fury keeping his distance, not looking to engage. Moves in this time though and lands a nice right hand. Whyte not going to have a lot of success while things stay at this range.

And another right hand from Fury, catches Whyte on the jaw. Fury’s opening round.

22:12 , Matt Verri


We are underway at Wembley for Fury vs Whyte!

22:11 , Matt Verri

Whyte nods along as his name gets called out, met with a chorus of boos. Few more cheers the second time.

Warm reception for Fury, who is wrapped up in a towel as he looks to stay warm.

So much talk about Fury’s tactics. Stand and trade? Box and move?

We’re about to find out!

Not bad...

22:09 , Matt Verri

22:08 , Matt Verri

National anthem done.

That’s the build-up done. It’s time to get this fight underway!

22:05 , Matt Verri

Fury makes it halfway round Wembley, where there’s a throne waiting for him.

Takes a seat and sings along to the music. Sure his opponent will be thrilled to see that.

Here he comes, Fury breaks into a jog along with about 40 of his team. He’s made it to the ring!

22:02 , Matt Verri

Whyte trying to keep himself moving in the ring, he won’t want to cool down.

We’re still on the montage stage of the ring walk though.

“All rise for the Gypsy King” marks the start of the actual ring walk! Here comes Fury, his brother Shane right alongside him.

22:00 , Matt Verri

American Pie kicks off Fury’s ring walk, once we’ve had the standard long montage.

Hope Whyte brought some pads to the ring - he’s going to be in there by himself for quite some time!

Wembley crowd singing along, still no sign of Fury though.

21:57 , Matt Verri

It’s an absolutely mammoth walk to the ring. We’ve gone through about three different albums of music.

He’s made it to the ring though, looking nice and relaxed.

He’s going to have a long wait now himself though. Fury isn’t exactly going to sprint to join him.

Matt Majendie at Wembley

21:54 , Matt Verri

Not quite sure what Dillian Whyte’s done to deserve it but he’s on the receiving end of massive boos as his name is announced for his ring walk. That’s quickly drowned out by cheers as he takes his steps towards the ring.

21:53 , Matt Verri

Dillian Whyte is making them wait!

He’s been announced but no sign of him making the walk to the ring yet. All part of the fun and games.

At last! Jaws music starts and here he comes. Not exactly a warm reception.

The waiting is over!

21:50 , Matt Verri

Undercard done - attention turns to the main event.

Fury vs Whyte for the WBC world title. Wilder managed to get Fury down a number of times in their trilogy - can Whyte do what nobody else has done and finish the job?

It’s time to find out!

Matt Majendie at Wembley

21:47 , Matt Verri

That might have been an underwhelming series of undercard fights but Wembley Stadium is absolutely rocking now. The DJ’s producing all the usual pre-fight numbers, the crowd currently singing along to Sweet Caroline, among them Tyson Fury’s wife Paris.

It’s time for the main event!

21:46 , Matt Verri

Essuman wins on points!

21:43 , Matt Verri

117-111, 116-112, 116-112.

AND STILL... Essuman defends his belts with a unanimous points decision.

Essuman vs Tetley

21:41 , Matt Verri

Round 12

Final three minutes. Think Tetley might need a knockout if he’s to snatch the belts.

Not boxing like a man who thinks he needs a stoppage though, still patiently picking his shots. Even Essuman is starting to look slightly weary.

Last ten seconds... fighters in the clinch... and that’s the final bell! Essuman has probably done just about enough.

Essuman vs Tetley

21:37 , Matt Verri

Round 11

Referee warns Essuman about leading with his head.

Big left hand from Tetley, Essuman sees it coming though and ducks under it. Wouldn’t say either fighter is really going for it though, despite it still being in the balance.

It’s Essuman who is taking this round though heading into the final minute, landing nicely on the inside.

Pair touch gloves at the end of the round. We’re heading into the 12th!

Essuman vs Tetley

21:33 , Matt Verri

Round 10

Three rounds to go and it’s still there for either fighter to take control of. Essuman maybe a round or two ahead.

Tetley is trying to come forward a bit more, he’s upping the pace. Essuman’s gumshield comes out so a brief pause while he has a quick drink.

Back we go... for about two seconds and that’s the bell. Yet another round that was really tight.

Essuman vs Tetley

21:29 , Matt Verri

Round 9

Essuman with one of his best shots for a few rounds, Tetley takes it well though.

Still it’s Essuman throwing more, he’s the busier man. Not a huge amount of success with it though. Surely they’ll both have to really go for it in these last few rounds?

Tetley does step things up in the final ten seconds, but nothing particulary eye-catching.

Essuman vs Tetley

21:25 , Matt Verri

Round 8

More and more it’s Essuman pushing Tetley back now, throwing so many punches on the inside. They don’t look to be hurting Tetley too much but it’s got to be slowing him down.

Tetley throws a left hand, doesn’t land. Essuman getting on the inside at will and he looks much the better for it.

Another busy round from the champion and that’s his round again.

Essuman vs Tetley

21:20 , Matt Verri

Round 7

Imagine that Essuman’s engine will serve him well in the championship rounds, he can certainly maintain this pace for the duration.

It’s still very slow though and that has helped Tetley throughout. He’s still right in the fight.

Here we go, combination from Essuman and he lands with four clean shots. Tetley felt those. Can’t back it up though and it’s a quiet last few seconds.

Essuman’s round though, he’s probably just about ahead on the cards.

Matt Majendie at Wembley

21:17 , Matt Verri

A look round ringside throws up no shortage of celebrity faces inside Wembley Stadium, among them former British heavyweight champion Frank Bruno, Noel Gallagher and Gerwyn Price.

The consensus among most is that the night ends with a Tyson Fury win. Every time, the big screen turns to Fury, he’s singing and dancing, doing little to dispel the suggestion he’s the overwhelming favourite.

Essuman vs Tetley

21:17 , Matt Verri

Round 6

Essuman firing to the body, hoping that will continue to slow Tetley down. The champion still unable to get any sort of control over this one though.

More clinching, very little action in the final minute of the round.

Judges are going to have their work cut out scoring this one.

Essuman vs Tetley

21:13 , Matt Verri

Round 5

Essuman has upped the pace again, throwing shots to the body as he finally closes the distance.

Tetley is starting to look a bit tired now, not in any rush to break away from the clinch.

That’s better though, a couple of nice shots land and he pushes Essuman back. Essuman started it well, Tetley finished the round the better.

Five rounds gone and there’s almost nothing to split them.

Essuman vs Tetley

21:08 , Matt Verri

Round 4

More good work from Tetley, he’s growing nicely into the fight.

Essuman’s pace has slowed down, which is certainly suiting his opponent. Wouldn’t say Tetley is fully in control though, bout is right in the balance.

Largely uneventful round - good luck scoring this one so far!

Matt Majendie at Wembley

21:05 , Matt Verri

Organisers have claimed there will be 94,000 in the stands for a record crowd for a boxing bout on British soil. But there’s still a lot of red seats - thousands of them - needing to be filled between now and the ring walks of Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte, which are estimated for between 9.45 and 10pm.

Remains to be seen how many fans are leaving it late to take their places.

Essuman vs Tetley

21:04 , Matt Verri

Round 3

Tetley looks comfortable when he stays at distance, southpaw stance is causing Essuman a few problems.

Works so hard though, does Essuman. He’ll keep coming all night.

Couple of nice jabs from Tetley land, this has been his best round of the fight so far. Essuman isn’t reaching with his shots, throwing from too far back. Tetley’s round.

Essuman vs Tetley

21:01 , Matt Verri

Round 2

Another quiet opening to the round. Both open up and look to trade in the middle of the ring... probably ten punches thrown between them, none of them land though!

Essuman continues to try and close the distance to Tetley, he looks better when he gets on the inside.

Referee steps in as they clinch - looks to be some blood on Tetley’s head. No sign of a cut though. It’s tight round again.

Essuman vs Tetley

20:56 , Matt Verri

Round 1

Cagey start to the bout, both fighters feeling each other out in the early stages.

Essuman taking centre ring, he looks the sharper of the two. Throwing plenty, not a huge amount landing though.

Got to give that opening round to Essuman, simply due to his work rate. By far the busier fighter.

20:53 , Matt Verri

Here we go then - should be a brilliant welterweight bout.

Essuman unbeaten in his 16 professional fights. He’s defending his belts tonight and what a huge stage to do so!

20:48 , Matt Verri

Final fight before the main event!

Late addition to the card, with this fight initially due to take place next week.

Ekow Essuman defends his British, Commonwealth and IBF European welterweight titles against Darren Tetley.

Parker vs Joyce on the cards

20:44 , Matt Verri

Joseph Parker and Joe Joyce are ringside - Frank Warren reveals a fight between the pair is close to being agreed.

Parker, former world champion, has been heavily involved with Tyson Fury’s camp and would be the favourite you feel.

Joyce an awkward opponent for anyone though, would be a real step up for him.

Sounds like we could be seeing that one in July.

Not sure Whyte is listening too much...

20:42 , Matt Verri

20:39 , Matt Verri

Ruthless from Ball. Took full advantage at the end to get the stoppage.

He dropped Lowe early in the fight, before the cut. He was impressive throughout and certainly deserved the win.

Both promised an entertaining fight - it didn’t disappoint.

 (Action Images via Reuters)
(Action Images via Reuters)

20:37 , Matt Verri

Ball shoved Lowe into the corner, with the latter then standing there with his back turned. For some reason the referee didn’t step in.

Lowe then gets caught with a massive left from Ball, and then another shot... only then did the referee wave it off.

Towel had been thrown in but that was behind the referee so he couldn’t see it.

Lowe vs Ball

20:36 , Matt Verri

Round 6

Lowe’s corner taking every possible second they can between rounds. Not much in the way of tactics being discussed, full focus on the cut.

Ball continues to land the uppercuts, he’s having a lot of success as Lowe comes charging in.


What happened there?! Lowe got caught and just turned his back, Ball was briefly confused but then landed a couple of huge shots. Still Lowe had his back turned, eventually the referee calls it off.

Ball gets the sixth-round stoppage!

Lowe vs Ball

20:32 , Matt Verri

Round 5

Lowe called over so the doctor can have a look at the cut. He warns Lowe to let the referee know if his vision is impaired - there’s no way his vision isn’t impaired with that. On we go though.

His corner are able to patch it up briefly... but it opens up immediately when Ball lands a shot again.

Lowe keeps rubbing his eye, obviously really bothering him. Ball knows he can afford to be patient.

It’s a scrappy round, Lowe pushing the pace and maybe just edging it.

Lowe vs Ball

20:28 , Matt Verri

Round 4

That’s a deep cut for Lowe, not sure a huge lump of Vaseline is going to do the job.

Looks to have encouraged Lowe to force the pace even more, but Ball is happy to see that and keeps catching his man.

Blood pouring from the cut again, Lowe knows he pretty much has to go for the stoppage right now. Throwing everything at Ball, uppercut lands and then he unloads another combination.

Not sure Lowe will be able to see much from his left eye, it looks terrible. His corner urge him on as he pushes Ball back onto the ropes.

Good round from Lowe, he’s probably taken it. Concern is that his eye doesn’t look like it has another six rounds in it.

Lowe vs Ball

20:24 , Matt Verri

Round 3

Well then. Was the minute between rounds enough for Lowe to compose himself?

Ball just so quick when he puts the punches together. Lowe looks fine when he’s landing the jab from range, but when Ball comes in it’s a different matter.

Clash of heads and there’s a significant cut for Lowe under the left eye. Looks to be blood coming from Ball’s nose too.

Another right hand lands from Ball on the top of the head. Lowe in trouble with the cut and with his opponent.

Here comes Whyte...

20:20 , Matt Verri

Lowe vs Ball

20:20 , Matt Verri

Round 2

Clean shot lands from Ball, LOWE IN TROUBLE!

Ball’s jumped on him and he’s unloading, Lowe briefly looked really hurt there. He’s meeeting fire with fire and swinging back.

Lowe continues to march forward but he got badly caught over the top earlier in the round. Ball swings and misses with another big right.

AND LOWE IS DOWN! Stunning left from Ball and Lowe was left flat on his back. 30 seconds left in the round. Huge left uppercut from Ball, Lowe is all over the place and trying to clinch.

He makes the bell by the skin of his teeth. Sensational from Ball.

Matt Majendie at Wembley

20:16 , Matt Verri

A wry grin from Dillian Whyte as he saunters into Wembley Stadium and is met by resounding boos from those already in the stands as he appears on the big screen. The grin suggests the huge headphones he’s wearing didn’t drown out the boos.

Lowe vs Ball

20:15 , Matt Verri

Round 1

Ten rounds of action scheduled for this one. Both have insisted they will meet in the centre of the ring and trade.

Lowe controlling things early on, Ball struggling to close the distance and land his shots. That’s better though, sharp left hand catches Lowe.

Entertaining first round. Lowe on the front foot for most of it but he got caught a couple of times at the end there.

Matt Majendie at Wembley

20:11 , Matt Verri

How many headline fighters also double up as glorified supporters? Bizarre to see Tyson Fury leaping up and down like a loon for the latest undercard ring walk at the back of the stadium. Clearly not lacking for energy or confidence ahead of Dillian Whyte in a couple of hours.

20:10 , Matt Verri

Two fights to go until the main event.

First of those is about to take place. Isaac Lowe vs Nick Ball. This should be a cracker! WBC silver featherweight title on the line.

Some thoughts from the WBC champion...

20:06 , Matt Verri

20:04 , Matt Verri

Adeleye progresses to 9-0, eight of those by stoppage.

Healey gave a good account of himself for much of that fight, but Adeleye was catching him nicely.

Punishing shots to finish it, took complete control in a matter of seconds.

Adeleye vs Healey

20:01 , Matt Verri

Round 4

HEALEY CAUGHT! Right hand lands from Adeleye and he staggers back.

Legs look shaky. Adeleye catches him again, REFEREE WAVES IT OFF! That all happened very quickly!

Healey got tagged early in the round, didn’t recover. Referee quickly jumps in to save him from any further punishment.

Adeleye vs Healey

19:59 , Matt Verri

Round 3

Adeleye needs to do a bit more in terms of pushing the pace, it’s Healey who keeps moving forward. He lands a good left hand too.

That’s better from Adeleye, sets it up with the jab and then gets a right hand through the defences.

Smile, or maybe a grimace, from Healey as Adeleye whips a shot to the body. And now an uppercut from Adeleye, who finishes the round strongly.

Adeleye vs Healey

19:55 , Matt Verri

Round 2

Already more purpose from Adeleye, letting the combinations go in the early stages of the second round. Three right hands land in quick succession, Healey is leaving himself open as he closes the distance.

Undercut stops Healey in his tracks, he’s walking onto the shots.

Healey is certainly game, he’s happy to keep coming in despite the fact it’s leaving him vulnerable.

Adeleye’s round. His corner urging him to be patient, no need to look for that one big shot.

Adeleye vs Healey

19:51 , Matt Verri

Round 1

First heavyweight action of the night. Healey an awkward southpaw, even if his conditioning doesn’t look to be the best. He’s the Central Area champion.

Healey has made a confident start, looking to walk forward. Adeleye yet to establish the jab.

He’s closing the gap, but Adeleye is catching him as he comes forward. And another left hook lands as Healey marches forward.

Relatively even first three minutes.

Adeleye up next

19:46 , Matt Verri

Next up - David Adeleye vs Chris Healey!

Eight rounds of heavyweight action. Can Adeleye impress on the big stage?

Fury calls out Jake Paul

19:43 , Matt Verri

“That lad in there would kill Jake Paul.

“I’ll end your career, you’re a bum, you’re no good. Let’s get this fight done.”

Fury wins on points!

19:38 , Matt Verri

Can’t imagine this will be anything other than a wide decision for Fury.

Referee scores it 60-54 for Fury! Every round goes his way as expected, comfortable night for him and he moves to 8-0.

Fury family off to the perfect start tonight.

Fury vs Bocianski

19:36 , Matt Verri

Round 6

Final round of the fight. Bocianski has been really tough but this could be a long three minutes for him.

He’s holding at every opportunity now. Fury staying patient, picking his moments to unleash with the right.

Messy end to the fight, Bocianski again with blood flowing from his right eye. And that’s the final bell!

Fury has won every round you’d think, couldn’t get the stoppage though.

Fury vs Bocianski

19:32 , Matt Verri

Round 5

Bocianski on the floor but that’s not going to be a knockdown, he was wrestled to the canvas. Referee has another word with Fury.

Lot of blood coming from Bocianski’s eye, it’s really opened up. That’s given Fury a boost and he’s marching forward. Can he get the stoppage? Right hand thunders in, Bocianski leaning back on the ropes. He’s just about hanging on.


Bocianski up, 15 seconds to go in the round. Polish fighter hanging on desperately. He gets to the bell.. just!

Elsewhere in Wembley...

19:29 , Matt Verri

Fury vs Bocianski

19:28 , Matt Verri

Round 4

Combination from Fury lands, Bocianski showing damage around both eyes now. Sharp jab is causing the Polish man real problems.

It’s Bocianski who has the height and reach advantage but you wouldn’t think it, Fury controlling things well.

Couple of loose shots from the Brit though and he loses his balance, Bocianski not within range to make the most of it.

Another round for Fury.

Fury vs Bocianski

19:24 , Matt Verri

Round 3

Quieter start to the round, though Fury throws a big right hand which misses by a long way.

TAGS HIM AGAIN! Bocianski’s face is starting to mark up, he staggers away again as the right hand from Fury lands. Brit gets slightly caught himself though coming in, has to be wary of that.

A couple more great jabs from Fury, he’s been really impressive behind that. Three rounds, and surely three for Fury.

Matt Majendie at Wembley

19:21 , Matt Verri

Biggest shout of the night rings out as Tyson Fury arrives at Wembley Stadium while brother Tommy is boxing in the ring. Interestingly Fury Jr’s not actually listening to his own trainer in between rounds but tilting his head to listen to dad John.

Fury vs Bocianski

19:20 , Matt Verri

Round 2

John Fury sitting ringside and he’s barking out the instructions, with Fury turning to face him. Corner offering very little input of their own!

BIG RIGHT HAND! Great shot from Fury and Bocianski staggers backwards, his legs briefly deserting him. Fury decides not to unload though, content to stay patient.

The jab continues to land for Fury, he can’t miss with it. He’s given a warning now by the referee though after another clinch.

Fury responds by landing a couple more powerful shots, Bocianski is really feeling them. Great round from the Brit.

Fury vs Bocianski

19:16 , Matt Verri

Round 1

Bocianski the taller man, very rangy. Couple of nice jabs landed early on from Fury, stopping the Polish man in his tracks.

Much of the first round so far has been spent in the clinch, Bocianski happy to hold every time he comes in.

Scrappy opening few minutes, but a number of good jabs from Fury helped him control it. He’s taken the opening round.

19:12 , Matt Verri

Reminder that this is a six-round bout. Fury’s record currently 7-0, with four stoppages.

Lots of talk from his camp this week that this is a real step up. Time to find out!

There’s some cracking fashion choices in the concourse to the stadium, with the fan base very much on the side of Tyson Fury. Among the fashion stand-outs are a father and his two sons top to toe in matching Burberry outfits all with golden crowns.

Atmosphere building

Barney-Smith reacts to earlier win...

18:56 , Matt Verri

“Myself and my team know I could have done a little bit more.

“I’m only 18, I’m on this platform and I want to improve, I’m a bit too eager.

“Keep stepping up the ladder, keeping getting better, and get to my ambition of being a world champion before I’m 22.”

18:51 , Matt Verri

Ciach didn’t look happy as that was waved off, but it was the right decision from the referee. Was only going to end in a bad knockout the way it was going.

The unbeaten Itauma moves on to 7-0 with another stoppage win. Real power behind his shots from the first seconds.

The seats are slowly beginning to fill at Wembley Stadium with a crowd of 94,000 anticipated if it’s at capacity for what would be a British record. The sun creeping’s out occasionally from the clouds above but the noise is fairly muted for some of the early undercard fights.

Round 2

Ciach sitting on the ropes, he’s really out of his depth at the moment. Plenty of heart being shown though.

Body shot from Itauma gets through, they’re slowing down his opponent even more. Combinations coming in too, not sure there’s too much longer of this one to go...

CIACH DOWN AGAIN! He’s up at seven, but the referee waves it off! Itauma has a second-round stoppage win. Dominant.

Round 1

Ciach already looks uncomfortable, with a couple of big right hands having landed on the Polish man. Good work to the body from Itauma.

This is absolutely dominant from Itauma, don’t think Ciach has thrown a punch yet. Just wants to cover up.

Itauma is unloading, this is punishing stuff... CIACH DOWN! Still a minute left in the round too. Can he make it to the bell?

He’s back on the ropes, hanging on for dear life. Itauma continues to march forward. Ciach does hear the bell, but it was a brutal first three minutes.

18:43 , Matt Verri

Itauma has a couple of quick stoppages on his record already, and he’s promised another impressed display.

We’re underway!

Next up...

18:41 , Matt Verri

On we go!

Karol Itauma vs Michal Ciach next up on the bell. Itauma has an unbeaten 6-0 on record, looks to extend that tonight against his Polish opponent.

Four rounds of light-heavyweight action coming up!

Promoter is impressed!

Barney-Smith wins on points!

18:33 , Matt Verri

Radoi jumps on the ropes with a massive smile on his face, he’s clearly enjoyed the experience fighting at Wembley. He knows full well he hasn’t won this though!

Referee scores it 40-36 to Barney-Smith, no surprise at all though.

Job done for the teenager. Extends his professional record to 2-0.

Round 4

Looks like Barney-Smith is happy to just keep the control without forcing anything.

Radoi hasn’t got within range more than once or twice, he’s been kept on the end of Barney-Smith’s jab.

Final minute of the bout coming up - couple of punches to the body from Radoi as they clinch, but he’s lost every round of this.

And that’s the bell! Lovely performance from the 18-year-old, composed and confident throughout.

Round 3

Barney-Smith maintaining the distance well with the jab, he looks completely at ease.

Wild swinging right hand from Radoi, luckily for him Barney-Smith doesn’t quite land the counter. Teenager lands the right hand this time though, and now a well-time uppercut.

Another good three minutes from Barney-Smith. Will he look to really push the pace in the final round and go for the stoppage?

Barney-Smith vs Radoi

18:23 , Matt Verri

Round 2

Nearly a nasty clash of heads as Radoi comes charging in trying to close the distance. And again, it’s been a messy opening minute of the round.

Referee continues to warn Radoi about his head, keeps leading with it when he comes in.

More good counter-punching from Barney-Smith. Not as eye-catching a round, but the teenager certainly controlled it.
