Tyson Fury sees off Dereck Chisora with classy tenth round stoppage

Published Add your comment

Tyson Fury made it 23 wins from 23 fights as his grudge match with Dereck Chisora was stopped by his opponent's corner in the tenth round.

The pair first met three years ago in a fight that went the full distance but saw the Mancunian take the win on a points decision. Victorious Fury will now get a chance to meet Ukraine's Wladimir Klitschko in the ring in an attempt to become a heavyweight champion.

Fury v Chisora

The 26-year-old went into battle as the favourite after weighing in more than a stone heavier than Chisora, as well as boasting a supreme height advantage. And these advantages were clear right from the first bell.

Fury, whose forename is taken from boxing legend Mike Tyson, dominated the fight despite doing anything to really get the crowd on their feet. Despite the increased hype around the contest it never really took off, but it was the undefeated man who was earning the points.


The fight was eventually stopped in the tenth round after Chisora's team withdrew him from the ring, to the disappointed sound of London's Excel Arena. The under card contest saw Chris Eubank Jr. defeated on a split decision by Billy Joe Saunders, who retained his British, European and Commonwealth titles.

Eubank Jr. was unable to follow in his father's footsteps and was given a boxing lesson in the opening six rounds. The 25-year-old did turn things around in the second half of the fight but couldn't quite land that knockout punch that was much needed.

Two judges scored the match in favour of Saunders with the other feeling that Eubank earned the win. It was a first loss from the boy from Brighton but his two-weight world champion father said he was "proud" of his son.
