Fury Impresses, Easily Decisions Chisora
In a highly charged grudge match between unbeaten heavyweights, 6'9 Tyson Fury (14-0, 10 KOs) scored a twelve round unanimous decision over WBO #13 Dereck "Del Boy" Chisora (14-0, 9 KOs) on Saturday night at the Wembley Arena in London.
Chisora rocked Fury in the second round with a left and two further rights but it was the only time when the champion looked like he might win the fight. Fury got back on track in round three while Chisora missed wildly with big power shots. Fury's combination punching won rounds four and five while Chisora threw one shot at a time.
Manchester's Fury looked sharper than Chisora, who looked rusty and like a boxer that had not fought for 10 months.
Fury had his best round of the fight in the fifth as he varied his punches, throwing several combinations and looked the fresher of the two boxers with two straight rights hurting Chisora - who was bloodied and battered as he headed to the stool.
Chisora continued to be on the back foot in the sixth as he struggled to assert himself on the fight with Fury finding success with the double left-hand jab, right hook combination.
Fury looked fresh in the seventh with nothing coming back from Chisora as the fight started to swing firmly in the way of the Manchester-based fighter.
Fury continued to pick Chisora off in the ninth with the British champion now needing a knockout to win the fight but in the 10th it was the challenger who looked the most likely to end the fight early as he pinned his opponent in the corner and picked him off at ease despite a 30 second rally from 'Del Boy'.
Chisora seemed to be shot in the 11th and was reduced to single shots while Fury stuck to his game plan of boxing behind the jab and in bursts throughout the round.
The champion knew he needed a stoppage in the final round but he lacked energy and intensity as Fury managed to keep Chisora at length to take the fight on points.
