Dillian Whyte vs Dereck Chisora II
2 years after battling to a split decision, Dillian Whyte and Dereck Chisora fight it out in a rematch, at the O2 arena.
Whyte comes off a career best win over former WBO world champion, Joseph Parker, Chisora comes off a career best win himself, having pulled out an upset, knocked out favourite, Carlos Takam on the undercard of Whyte vs Parker.
Chisora works with old rival, two weight world champion, David Haye. Whyte seems to be very close to a world title shot.
Chisora is the aggressor from the start, but in round 1, Whyte connects with his straight right hand, and clearly has affect on Chisora. Whyte seems to let Chisora off the hook, as Chisora smothers his counters, works very well to the body, and out works Whyte.
As the rounds go by, Chisora throws more shots, is on the front foot, but Whyte does the better work overall, and the fight seems to be taking more of a toll on Chisora (34), than it does on Whyte (30).
The referee controversially takes a point from Chisora in round 8, for a low blow, and again, in round 11, as Whyte ties Chisora up and leans on him, but Chisora uses the elbow to get him off, the ref deducts another point, contriversially.
In round 11, having lost two points, seeming to be the much more tired, the one who is fading, Chisora takes a devastating left hook, and Whyte knocks him out cold.
Whyte beats Chisora again, but this time, he makes it decisive, emphatic, finished the fight with the same lethal left hook which knocked Lucas Browne spark out, and badly hurt a very durable Joseph Parker.
Despite being brutally knocked out, Chisora insists he will continue fighting.
In his post fight interview, Whyte calls out and confronts Joshua.
After 10 rounds, at the time of the finish, the judges' cards read 94-95, 94-95, 95-94, with Chisora slightly ahead despite the earlier point deduction.
