Copper Box Arena, London - Continuing his road back to the elite and... the recent streak of very questionable stoppages, Derek "Del Boy" Chisora improved to 19-4, with 13 KOs, with a sick stoppage of Czech Ondrej Pala (32-4, 22 KOs) late into the third. Chisora acquired a vacant WBA International heavyweight title in addition to his already owned WBO International heavyweight belt.
After taking his fair share of lumps in the first two rounds, Chisora turned up the heat in the third round and unloaded with power punches on Pala. During the rally, he pressed Pala into the corner and the Czech boxer turned his back to Chisora and got nailed with a rabbit-punch. The referee jumped in and waved off the contest, which gave Chisora the TKO win.
