Absolutely unbelievable, spectacular, awesome performance from Tyson Fury. There is simply no way you can criticise the winner of this fight, the tactics were brilliant, and he did not put a foot wrong. The tactics from Dereck Chisora were right, I think Don Charles set up a good game plan for him, but sometimes a fighter is in there with a guy who is leaps and bounds ahead of him, and there is nothing him or his trainer can do, at all. The footwork was awesome from Tyson Fury, Dereck tried to slow him down with those hooks to the body, but this was always futile, Chisora was ready to not only cut off the ring well but pin Tyson in the corner, but he was completely ineffective with everything he tried, this tactic included, Tyson did a great job of evading the body shots, sometimes he used his blocking ability, and sometimes he was able to make Chisora hit thin air, and to hit literally nothing with body shots is very embarrassing, especially as the shorter fighter, I think this was something to really frustrate Dereck, it was probably the first thing to really do that. I thought the southpaw stance was a massive issue for Chisora, he had not trained to fight a southpaw, and Tyson shocked a lot people with this, he is an orthodox fighter by nature, he he showed he truly has two stances, which is very impressive. The accuracy of everything Tyson Fury threw in there always spectacular, the punches were coming in from all angles, he threw every punch there is, his punch variety was great, Chisora simply didn't know how to defend himself, from anything. The overhand right from Chisora was something he had a a lot of confidence in, he even said that this weapon would make this the easiest fight of his career, I think he believed this because of the success he had in their first fight, I think Chisora was thinking he was in there with the same Tyson Fury as the boxer he had fought before, he didn't consider the fact that he is not the only one who can work on his conditioning, and this cost him. In the first fight, in the later rounds, Fury tried to use his jab to keep Chisora off, maybe to put him in a position to be out boxed, maybe to make him reckless and likely to walk onto something big, but he gave Chisora the opening to land and over hand right, in the mind of Chisora, if he could do this when out of shape, surely he could do it with ease as this new, improved, athletic, fast, sharp, experienced version of Dereck Chisora, but when it came to it, Chisora couldn't touch Fury, when he threw the over hand right, there were a few different counter punches he could have been hit with, and it was never accurate. I thought the rounds got more one sided, and Chisora looked to be feeling more and more sorry for himself after each round, Fury seems to be getting stronger too, Fury made schooling Chisora look really easy, which is unbelievable. I thought the stamina of both fighters was great for this fight, which is a sign they had both trained hard, and taken each other very seriously as boxers. It was difficult for Dereck Chisora in there as the much lighter man, but also the slower man, the speed of Fury stunned Chisora, the timing on those shots was also great, and for a such a big fighter to carry these attributes is unusual, and not something you see every day, the footwork was one of the biggest problems for Chisora, there is nothing Chisora tried that worked well, there is nothing Fury tried that didn't work well. I think Don Charles did the right thing by stopping the fight when he did, Chisora looked like a man who didn't believe he could win, he had tried everything, everything had failed, his face was a mess, he wasn't listening to Charles, Fury had really hurt him in the previous round, and he seemed to be thriving, without losing focus, he wasn't tiring, he wasn't getting complacent, Dereck was having no success, he was defenceless, and an unarguable mile behind on all the scorecards, I think Charles knew Dereck would have been knocked out quite brutally had he let him go out for the next round, it must be very hard for a trainer to stop a fight, but there are times when it is just the least horrible thing to do.
In terms of scoring, it is very simple, there was no subjectivity whatsoever in this fight, 100-90 is the only possible way of seeing it, Fury not only won every round, every round was extremely one sided. Chisora was never in this fight, and a case for Chisora getting so much as a share of one round being unmakeable expresses this.
I think this was a case if Chisora being better than he had ever been, but being in the ring with the best Heavyweight who has ever lived, and he was beaten in every department, beaten up, battered, schooled, whatever you want to say to describe the boxing lesson. In terms of describing the fight, 'one sided' doesn't cover it, 'a blow out' doesn't cover it, 'a boxing lesson' doesn't cover it, these two guys should not really have been in the same ring. I thought Fury would win this fight by a narrow decision, in a close, competitive fight, but nobody ever predicted a win this emphatic. I don't think this makes the end of Dereck's career by any means, and the more Fury achieves, the less damaged Chisora's confidence will be in the long run. In my opinion, Fury proved a huge amount with this victory, after everything Dereck Chisora has achieved in his career, to fight him after recovering from a nasty virus, and to beat him in such outstandingly one sided fashion is something special.

I think it’s supposed to be the 2nd Chisora fight. Some fights were added by older contributors, who aren’t on the site anymore. Those of us around that can still add fights, unfortunately, cannot go and edit someone else’s contributions, only Zoe, the site owner, can. You can maybe shoot her an email. We have a contributor only forum, and I added a number of corrections to a list that needed to be done, but maybe Zoe can get that on there as well with an email prompt from you.
