Whyte had the final say in an incredible heavyweight duel against Dereck Chisora in what can be classed as one of the best British fights ever in December.
Marred by flying tables in the week, the warriors put on an amazing spectacle for the 21,000 fans in Manchester as both fighters showed terrific resilience to last all 12 rounds.
The bell was welcomed by a huge applause including by the referee who was fully aware that he had witnessed something special.
However it was Whyte who won the judges over by split decision with the final scores reading 115-114 (Chisora), 115-113 (Whyte) and 115-114 (Whyte).
It was a welcome return to winning ways for Whyte, after he lost in his grudge match against recently crowned WBA, IBF and IBO heavyweight world champ Anthony Joshua.
