Tyson Fury Stunned, But Fights Back To Beat Chisora

By Alexey Sukachev

Wembley Arena, Wembley, London - A battle of undefeated British heavyweight rivals saw Tyson Fury (15-0, 10KOs) win a twelve round unanimous decision over Dereck Chisora (14-1, 9KOs) to capture the British and Commonwealth (British Empire) heavyweight titles. The scores were 117-112, 117-112 and 118-111.

Chisora looked out of shape, slow and was getting hit with big shots in the first round. Fury was doing a lot of holding every time Chisora got on the inside and was landing big shots at the distance. During the second, a big left hook hurt Fury and Chisora started unloading with big punches. Fury was able to get away and recovered enough to start landing shots to the head and body in return. Chisora hurt him again with a hard left hand and they started trading big punches.

Chisora continued to hurt Fury in the third round, with Fury coming back with combination counters. In fourth, Fury was boxing well until he got stunned again the final minute but held his way out of trouble. A lot of holding by both by both fighters in round five. Fury won it with a big combination and several landed shots to punish Chisora who appeared to be tired.

Fury was measuring and landing on a very tired Chisora in round six. Fury dominated most of the seventh with Chisora landing a few at the end. After dominating the eight and ninth, he lost his grip on the tenth and began to get caught with shots as Chisora rallied. Fury came back strong in the eleventh, landing big punches as he trapped Chisora in the corner and against the ropes. The tweflth round was dominated by Fury, who kept Chisora against the ropes and never allowed him to punch.
