It is understandable for boxing fans to be frustrated given that it was a really good left hook from Whyte.

Going into the bout there was no love lost between the two combatants, but it was Whyte's superior boxing ability that allowed him to dominate the fight right from the get go.

This was Browne's first significant fight since Chagaev while Whyte had built up some momentum with six successive wins since being stopped in the seventh round by Joshua in December 2015.
