Heavyweight titleholder Tyson Fury stopped Derek Chisora in the 10th round Saturday at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London.
Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) battered his grossly overmatched opponent from beginning to end, patiently picking Chisora apart from a distance and taking few punches himself.
The champ wasn’t able to put Chisora () down but he wore him down as a result of so many punishing blows.
Finally, in Round 10, referee Victor Loughlin decided that there was no point in Chisora continuing to take hard punch after hard punch and he stopped the one-sided fight.
The official time of the stoppage was 2;51.

That’s it. Finally, referee Victor Loughlin saw enough and stopped the fight. The end probably came at least one round too late but at least they didn’t let the beating go on for 12 full rounds. Good performance for Fury. Kudos to Chisora on his bravery.
Target practice. What’s the point of this now? It’s just a bigger, better, younger guy beating the you know what out of a far inferior opponent. It’s getting difficult to watch this.
Brutal round. Chisora took a lot of punishing blows. You wonder whether Chisora is starting to thinking about stopping the fight. Their man doesn’t deserve to take undue punishment. He’s trying hard but he has next to no chance.
Fury might’ve hurt Chisora in the last 30 seconds of the fight, as he backed into a corner. Or maybe Chisora is just getting really tired. It’s probably a combination of a prolonged beating and weariness, which is not a good way to be.
Same story. Fury patiently setting up shots and landing them consistently to win round after round. Chisora’s has taken a lot of punches, which is why his face is so puffy. You have to admire the challenger. He doesn’t know how to quit even though things look bleak.
The brutality of this fight is what stands out but it’s really a boxing clinic by Fury, who is controling every aspect of the bout. He’s picking Chisora apart from a distance, not getting hit, completely in charge.
Fury is taking his time, patiently waiting for openings and then taking advantage of him. Chisora had a better round in that he didn’t take a lot of punishment. That’s something. But Fury is still in control.
This is brutal stuff. Fury continued to land almost at will against a game, but almost defenseless opponent. The champ took his foot off the gas in the second half of the round to prolong things. But Chisora’s demise seems inevitable.
Fury landed some monstrous shots, particularly in the last minute. Chisora showed some resolve at the end but he can’t take too much more of this. We might be in for a short fight.
Chisora came out firing at the opening bell but it was Fury who landed the heavy blows … many of them. You wonder how long Chisora will last if he can’t manage to hurt Fury.
We’re only a few minutes away from the Fury-Chisora fight. Jimmy Lennon is finishing up the introductions. How long will it last?
Daniel Dubois rebounded from three first-round knockdowns to stop Kevn Lerena at the end of Round 3 in a wild heavyweight fight.
The left-handed Lerena (28-2, 14 KOs) hurt Dubois (19-1, 18 KOs) with a left to the top of the head, which put Dubois down for the first time. The Londoner, apparently still hurt, then intentionally went down intentionally two times.
The hot young contender was in serious trouble. However, Lerena failed to take advantage of his opponent’s condition, instead boxing carefully.
That allowed Dubois to regain his footing and storm back. In the final round, Dubois put Lerena down and hurt him with a straight right. The South African was able to get up but collapsed under a barrage of punches near the end of the round, prompted the referee to stop the fight.
Dubois has now won four consecutive fights since he was stopped by Joe Joyce in the 10th round in November 2020.
