On Saturday, WBC world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury put his title on the line against a familiar foe in Dereck Chisora. It was the third meeting between the two in London with ‘The Gypsy King’ leading the series 2-0. First squaring off in July 2011, Fury scored a unanimous decision victory to win the British and Commonwealth heavyweight titles. Three years later, they would meet again, with Fury earning a victory after Chisora retired following the 10th round. Eight years later, they met once again at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England.

 

Round 1

Dereck Chisora immediately came out swinging, trying to land a knockout shot early, but Fury’s reach was able to keep him from any legitimate danger. After the first few moments, the remainder of the opening round was largely a feeling-out process as Chisora tried to find his way into range. 

Round 2

Chisora found some success closing the distance early, landing a big right with Fury against the ropes. Chisora pushed the pace, but Fury landed solid counterstrikes. With 1:15 to go, Chisora moved in and ate a combination of strikes from Fury. ‘The Gypsy King’ followed that up with a three-punch combo and a big uppercut that had Chisora reeling. Back Chisora into the corner, Fury taunted his opponent before landing another series of strikes as the round came to a close. 

Round 3

30 seconds into the third, Chisora was wobbled by a big right hand from Fury. Unable to move off the ropes, Chisora continued to tie up but took punishment each time they were separated. 1:20 to go in the round, Chisora was able to circle back to the center of the ring, lunging in for a swing and a miss. Fury pushes him back against the ropes once again, but their feet got tangled, causing both fighters to tumble. Resetting, Fury landed another combination before walking away as the bell sounded.

Round 4

Landing 54% of his power punches going into the fourth round, Fury was in complete control while Chisora was beginning to look tired. Still, Chisora continued swinging big, landing a solid body blow on Fury in the process. Working the jab, Fury was essentially playing with his food throughout the course of the fourth round as Chisora noticeably slowed down. 

Round 5

Chisora came out looking to work the body of Fury, but getting close enough to hit consistently put him in danger. Fury peppered his opponent with the jab before backing him into a corner and throwing power strikes. That continued throughout the fifth round as both fighters began to conserve energy.

Round 6

Fury comes out landing big shots including a blinding right hand. Chisora responds by moving in quickly to close distance and landing some power strikes of his own. Chisora worked the body but ate Fury’s double jab time and time again as he attempted to move in closer. 

Round 7

Chisora comes out landing a big body shot on Fury but eats one in return. Both fighters were content to clinch and dirty box in the seventh round. With 35 seconds to go, Fury landed a nice 1-2 combo on Chisora from distance. Backed into the corner, Chisora is content to defend another combination of strikes from Fury as the round ends. 

Round 8

Going into the eighth round, Fury more than doubled the total strikes of Chisora at this point. Fury began to turn it up in the round, landing a big right hand followed up by a series of combinations to a constantly lunging in Chisora. Fury wobbled his opponent with a 1-2 combo against the ropes as the eighth round bell sounds.

Round 9 

More of the same in round nine with Fury landing consistently against an opponent that simply can’t close the distance against the much taller and longer heavyweight champion. Chisora began to show the wear with significant swelling on his right eye and blood coming from his mouth. 

Round 10

Completely outmatched going into the 10th round, Chisora began to show some separation in his strikes, but it was nothing ‘The Gypsy King’ couldn’t handle. Delivering another dominant round, the referee had finally seen enough, stepping in following another devastating combination from Fury and calling for the stoppage.

Official Result: Tyson Fury defeats Dereck Chisora via TKO at 2:51 of Round 10
