Whyte missed a wild overhand right in the second round that hit the top rope. Fury landed a combination seconds later to the chin of Whyte. Whyte landed a right to the body, which was his first solid punch. Fury took another round.

In the third rounds final minute, Fury landed two combinations to the chin of the shorter Whyte. In the fifth round, Fury lands short rights to the body of Whyte breaking him down. Whyte cannot get inside of the reach of Fury.

In the sixth round, a right uppercut from Fury on the chin and a push and down went Whyte. The Referee was Mark Lyson.

In the third round, a jab from Lowe drew blood from Ball’s nose halfway through the round as he started being the aggressor. In the final thirty seconds, Ball and Lowe clashed heads, causing a cut on the left eyebrow of Lowe. In the fourth round, the shorter by 5” Ball kept Lowe backed up for the most part.
