Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte scorecards at the time of the KO revealed as one judge’s score is called into question

Tyson Fury was beating Dillian Whyte on all three of the judges’ scorecards when he ended their fight on Saturday night.

However, one of the cards has been called into question as judge Juan Carlos Pelayo awarded rounds two and three to the challenger.

In the eyes of most observers Fury was firmly in control of the bout for the first five rounds, before finding the KO 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.

This has been heavily questioned by fans and media after the scorecards were released on Sunday.

Ultimately it proved irrelevant as Fury KOd Whyte with a colossal uppercut in round six.

He celebrated on Sunday by going for lunch with his family.

The Gypsy King was joined by a big group which included his wife Paris Fury, father John Fury, brother Tommy Fury and Tommy’s girlfriend Molly-Mae Hague

He even called Eddie Hearn on Facetime as he ate, presumably to bask in his victory and rub it in just a little.
