13 people arrested outside Wembley Stadium at Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte as it’s revealed that fight policing cost £72,000

Met Police have revealed that 13 people were arrested outside Wembley Stadium on the night Tyson Fury knocked out Dillian Whyte.

On April 23, the WBC heavyweight world champion defended his title in emphatic fashion in front of 94,000 fans at the national stadium.

The event set a post-war record for boxing attendance.

As a result, a solid police presence was necessary to keep things under control.

However, as reported by the BBC, the Met Police’s memo reflecting on the fight has revealed that there was some disorder outside the stadium.

13 people were arrested for a range of offences.

These offences included common assault, sexual assault, affray, GBH, assault on police and racially aggravated public order offences.

Ultimately only one person has been charged of the 13 arrested.

Four were released with no further action taken against them and seven were subsequently released under investigation or on bail.

The total costing of the policing for the event has also been revealed.

Statistics released showed that the Met Police billed organisers a total of £72,259.29 for policing.

In the fight itself, Fury won by KO in round six.

For most observers, Fury was firmly in control of the bout for the first five rounds, before finding the knockout in the sixth.

Many felt that perhaps the first round was close and debatable, but aside from that the champion appeared to secure a shut-out.

This was reflected in the scorecard of judge Robert Tapper, who had it 50-45 for Fury after five rounds.

Judge Guido Cavalleri scored just the opener for Whyte, and so had it 49-46 for Fury.

But judge Pelayo gave Whyte rounds two and three, so his total scorecard had Fury just one round up after five at 48-47.
