Being defensively sound is one thing but Kabayel from rounds 1-10 had very low output with zero desire to engage. Chisora was the aggressor throughout and the one making the fight; without him there would have been no action whatsoever. I felt over the 12 rounds Chisora edged it, especially with his effort in the last 2 rounds. The official scorecards were okay though, I'm not mad at them, a lot of the rounds were close due to there being such low output.

Now Kabayel is rumoured to be fighting Tyson Fury this December. If we see the new evolution of Kronk Fury, he will absolutely toy with Kabayel.

I can't disagree enough, boxing can be subjective, but the landed count shouldn't be, and Kabayel's output was high enough to out land Chisora in most of the rounds.

Sure, but the vast majority of Kabayel's landed punches were pitter-patter punches. Chisora had the more consistent meaningful power punches that swung a lot of the rounds in his favour (imo). Not to mention Derek's aggression. I'm not opposed at all to people having Kabayel as the winner (and I recognise that I am in a very small minority thinking Chisora won) but I disagree with the people who have Agit wide or think there's no chance Chisora won.

They were clean, scoring shots, most of them weren't hard shots, granted, but Kabayel opted to box on the back foot, Chisora was following him around, he wasn't forcing Kayabel onto the back foot, so it wasn't effective aggression, I thought it was his output that was low, Kabaeyl threw more shots, he didn't hurt Chisora, and Chisora was the heavier handed whenever he did land, partly because he was holding his ground, and it was hard for Kabayel to put as much behind his shots because of how much he was moving, but he did well to keep that movement for as long as he did. Chisora he was too slow and unprepared to walk Kabayel down, Kabayel's movement slowed down in the last 2 rounds, but Chisora didn't have it in the tank himself to have a big finish. It's subjective who wins a close round when one lands more, the other lands harder, but who lands more isn't subjective, so one of is wrong on that, it's 1 of those fights, the judges were closer your card than mine, but the Sky commentary agreed with me. I agree Kabayel is easy for Fury, but more or less every fighter is, Fury is that good, hopefully the Joshua fight happens next year.

I think I should clarify that I don't believe that Chisora's output was higher than Kabayel's; just that BOTH fighters had very low output from rounds 1-10, so a lot of the rounds were close for me and could have swung either way due to the lack of action. That's my bad, I should made that clearer.

"Kabayel opted to box on the back foot, Chisora was following him around, he wasn't forcing Kayabel onto the back foot, so it wasn't effective aggression" - I agree in that Chisora never truly put his foot down and gunned for Kabayel, at the same time however Kabayel was content to cruise in first gear all night and it was Chisora's heavier handed shots as you said that stole some of the rounds for him.

Yeah, looks likely that Kabayel will be Fury's next opponent. I would have preferred someone like Michael Hunter who is a great fighter but I imagine Bob's gonna put Fury in with one of the easier Top Rank guys, Kabayel or Ajagba.

Btw you run this site right? Great site, I use this to basically track all the fights I watch now haha

That makes sense, no problem.

In the rounds I gave him, yes, I can't remember which swing rounds I gave Kabayel, but I thought Kabayel landed too much in too many of the rounds, I don't think we disagree on who did what better, but by how much a fighter has to out land the guy coming forward, to win rounds when he's on the back foot, and there isn't a lot of power on his shots, I might agree if Chisora landed more clean shots, but I remember him just falling short with a lot of shots, Kabayel defending well.

Hunter is a fighter we can agree on, he's the most underrated fighter in boxing in my opinion. I agree, because Fury is a loose cannon, isn't reliable, and there's a lot at stake.

No, I add fights, I've been here 7 years, try to contribute, but I could never create a website, terrible with technology. The scorer who started this site is all called Zoe, I think Mario Roberts helped her start it up, but both are busier than when they started the site, which is why you don't see much of them.
