Tyson Fury pushed me and I twisted two ligaments in my foot in ‘massive breach’ of rules, claims Dillian Whyte

Whyte was knocked out by the WBC champion in April following a brutal right uppercut in round six.

But Fury, 34, clearly shoved the challenger after the punch connected but referee Mark Lyson waved off the contest.

Whyte, 34, still protests that he should have been given until the count of ten to try and recover and that he was illegally pushed down.

He told Matchroom Boxing: “I think the fight obviously got stopped too early you know, I got hit with a good shot. It’s boxing, you get hurt.

“I’ve been down in fights before and obviously you get back up and obviously got hit with a good shot, pushed me over.

“When he pushed me over I ended up f***ing twisting two ligaments in my foot.”

Whyte was halted at the count of eight as he got to his feet dazed and confused while stumbling towards ref Lyson.

But per the rules, pushing an opponent is considered an illegal move, categorised alongside kicking, headbutting and biting.

It leaves Whyte, who returns next Saturday against 29-year-old Jermaine Franklin, feeling hard done by.

He said: “The boxing board didn’t follow the rules as well because if you go down, after the bell they’re not allowed to stop the fight.

“They’re allowed to send you to your corner, send the doctor intervene if you beat a ten count.

“They didn’t even do that they just stopped the fight you know which is a big, massive breach.”
