Whyte had weighed in at 18st 2lbs 2oz, nearly eight pounds heavier than when he outpointed British heavyweight Dereck Chisora in a notable 2016 victory, but still lighter than the 18st 11lbs 22oz Browne.
Whyte connected with a pulverizing left hook on a badly wounded Browne, who had been dominated up to that point.
As Jim Lampley stated at the beginning of Round 5, Lucas Browne seemingly could not see the left hand coming, as Whyte continued to play target practice on Browne's face.
The 28-year-old from Watford is poised to pick up a £20million share of the purse from his fight with Parker, who is unbeaten after 24 professional bouts.

The WBC Silver Heavyweight title was claimed by Whyte after his impressive, career-best, performance.
Dillian Whyte's destructive win over Lucas Browne could earn a shot at WBC champion Deontay Wilder, but which other opponents might be part of his plans?
