“I was buzzed, but obviously I was trying to regain my senses and he was pushing me properly … and I fell over and hit my head on the canvas, which is illegal,” Whyte said in an interview with Sky Sports.

“This is not wrestling, this is boxing,” he added. “I should have had extra time to recover and then continue fighting.”

After the fight, Whyte got up and tried to show that he was ready to continue before he faltered against the ropes, which led to the referee ending the match.

“I was hurt, I was trying to get my senses together and he was pushing me fully with two hands. It was not like a one-armed thing,” Whyte added. “I should have had time to recover, time to go back to my corner, but Tyson Fury gets away with a lot of things.”

After the fight, Fury suggested he could retire, saying it “could be the last curtain for the gypsy king.”

On Monday, Whyte did not hold back words when asked if he wanted a rematch with Fury.
