The 34-year-old Fury maintained his unbeaten record with a victory at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. However, his British opponent Chisora, 38, was consistently battered by the reigning champion, and the referee ended the lopsided match during the tenth round.
In truth, the fight could have been called off earlier, as Chisora took huge punishment. War Chisora sustained heavy bleeding to his mouth and right eye, as he staggered through the ten rounds. Chisora has now experienced 13 defeats in the span of his 46-bout career.
The two men promised to go head-to-head, with Chisora guaranteeing it would be “the most remarkable initial round the heavyweight division has ever witnessed.”
In the midst of a nice crowd, despite the icy weather of a December evening in London, the two tried to make the night entertaining as billed. Yet, the bout was just one-way traffic, as Fury was in a different class from Chisora as we knew going in.
In the aftermath, Usyk joined Fury in the ring as promised, but there were further fireworks, as Joe Joyce got in the ring too. With Fury firing shots at both men, Usyk remained composed… well, even a bit too much, as he took a selfie with Fury.
Fury Calls Out Usyk and Joe Joyce
Speaking in the aftermath, Fury pulled no punches on the Ukrainian: “Usyk you are next you little b****.” You are getting it you little p****. I am not a bodybuilder. you sucker I am going to do you aswell gappy teeth. You ugly little man. Let’s get it on. You may laugh but I will end it now. Let’s do me and you [Joyce] at Wembley if we can’t do me and you and that rabbit.”

Chisora Following His Defeat

A despondent Chisora summed up the fight that fans have been waiting for: “Me and Tyson are friends, I appreciate that. He called me in December. Listen there is a big fight everyone wants to see one champion, and we want to see him vs Oleksandr Usyk.”
“The ref was right,” Chisora told SecondsOut.com.
“I was not doing much anyway. The ref was right. The British boxing board of control were right. Because afterwards you have to go home to your kids. As fighters you don’t want to stop, you want to carry on. Because that’s how we’re bred. We just want to fight, fight, fight for 15 rounds.
“That’s why the refs are there, to look at a fight and [say], ‘you know what this isn’t going well.’”
