Highlights: Tyson Fury Decimates Derek Chisora In Trilogy

It may not have been unexpected, but nevertheless, Tyson Fury got it done once more against Derek Chisora.

Despite announcing his retirement again, Fury did not waste much time getting back to action just eight months after his last fight. Here, he opted to take a bout to stay active while waiting for a potential contest with Oleksandr Usyk, by taking on Derek Chisora for the third time, in spite of having scored two wins in their previous bouts.

Tyson Fury Batters Derek Chisora

Given the way the first two bouts played out between Tyson Fury and Derek Chisora, fans expected “The Gypsy King” to retain his title. However, when it comes to heavyweights, anything can happen, so this was still something worth paying attention to.

In the end, it was a fairly one-sided fight, with Chisora struggling to make an impact on Fury, and unable to stop the forward pressure of the Gypsy. The first several rounds were hectic and active, with the pace slowing as the fight went, but Fury maintained control.

It is worth noting that Chisora never got knocked down through the entirety of the ten rounds that the fight lasted. However, Fury absolutely battered his for, leaving the referee no choice but to stop the contest for a standing TKO.
