Dereck Chisora remained on course for a rematch with heavyweight rival Tyson Fury after a dominant points win over Kevin Johnson. Chisora floored Johnson heavily in the fifth round and looked to be on the verge of stopping the American for the first time, but he survived the storm and forced the Londoner to dig deep in the latter rounds. Chisora's efforts were acknowledged by the judges who gave him the win with scores of 118-109, 118-110 and 118-109. He can now look ahead to a summer showdown with Fury, who defeated him on points back in 2011.
"Yeah I give credit to Johnson he came to survive," said Chisora. "I said this was going to be long night, it was going to be 12 rounds. In the summer me and Tyson will get it on."
