CHAMPION STILL: Tyson Fury HAMMERS Chisora In Ten
Tyson Fury BATTERS Derek Chisora in embarrassingly one-sided bout, stopping him in the 10th round…
Tyson Fury did a number on his old friend Dereck Chisora in the refrigerated Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday night. The numericals which counted were two minutes and 51 seconds of the 10th round.
That was the moment when referee Victor Loughlin decided Dereck Chisora had taken enough punishment. More than enough in truth.
His corner should have gone through with their visible inclination to pull their gallant challenger out at the end of the ninth, when he was cut under the eye and spitting blood.
After a mixture of bullying punishment and masterclass boxing the Gypsy King hailed Chisora as a warrior, then screamed at Usyk ‘the rabbit’ to nerve himself for the task ahead. Usyk stood staring at him at close range, saying nothing.
Fury’s next port of call after this odd fight in which he won every round will be to sign the contract. Before, hopefully, flying to Doha to drink for England at the World Cup quarter-final.
Chisora admitted beforehand that he had no hope of winning on points, and by the seventh round we were well beyond the point of him needing a knockout. Doggedly he battled on and as he survived another barrage, and Fury saluted him by touching gloves at the end of the round.
But Chisora was soon cut under right eye, and then spitting blood too as he took a continual battering. Chisora’s corner were on the verge of pulling him out, but finally referee Victor Loughlin came to the rescue and waved it off.
