Photos: Chisora Batters Gerber, Saunders Edges Ryder

Copper Box, London - Dereck Chisora (18-4, 12 KOs) stopped Edmund Gerber (23-2, 14 KOs) in the fifth round to win the vacant EBU heavyweight title. After landing damaging punches on Gerber in the first two rounds, and hurting the German boxer in third, Gerber came back in the fourth with a good right hand to rock Chisora. The British fighter came firing back in the fifth, as he pinned Gerber against the ropes and unloaded with damaging shots until the referee jumped in.

British and Commonwealth middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders (19-0, 10 KOs) kept his undefeated streak with a twelve round unanimous decision over previously unbeaten John Ryder (15-1, 9 KOs). The action was very close with both fighters having their moments. The scores were 115-114, 115-113, 115-113.
