TMZ Sports reports;
Tyson Fury hit Whyte with a vicious right uppercut that sent him falling to the canvas … and as Whyte stumbled back to his feet, the ref called the fight.
The 33-year-old champ — who’s been teasing his retirement leading up to Saturday’s event — seemingly declared that he was content with his career and ready to hang up the gloves after the win … saying, “I think this is it. This might be the final curtain for the Gypsy King.”
Despite the retirement talk, Fury brought Ngannou in the ring during his celebration … and the two teased an epic heavyweight bout between the baddest from both combat sports — with Francis suggesting a fight with MMA gloves in a boxing ring.
There are a couple challenges — first, Ngannou is dealing with a leg injury and will need months to get back to 100% … and second, he’s also in the midst of a contract dispute with the UFC. If he’s under contract, he will need Dana White’s stamp of approval before taking a fight with Fury.
