Tyson Fury vs Derek Chisora LIVE: Fight result as ‘Gypsy King’ retains heavyweight title with late TKO

Tyson Fury defeated Derek Chisora for the third time on Saturday night, securing a TKO of his fellow Briton late in the 10th round to remain unbeaten and retain the WBC heavyweight title.

Fury, who outpointed his friend Chisora in 2011 then beat him via TKO in 2014, dominated the main-event contest at London’s Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, before the referee waved it off after 38-year-old Chisora ran out of energy to fight back.

After the bout, unified heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk confronted Fury, 34, ahead of an expected clash between the pair in 2013 – with such a fight set to crown an undisputed title holder.

That was uncomfortable.

It was uncomfortable for the 60,000 or so freezing fans in the somehow-sold-out Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. It was uncomfortable for everyone who decided, against all reason, to pay the pay-per-view price. It was uncomfortable for Derek Chisora, shivering upon the impact of Tyson Fury’s punches, as those in the London venue shivered from the cold. It even seemed uncomfortable for Fury himself at times.

A lot of people in August said this was a fight that no one wanted. The attendance at Tottenham suggested otherwise, but one thing is undisputable: This was a fight that no one needed.

Round 10

The referee is talking to Chisora. He wants more from the challenger. This is the round in which Fury vs Chisora II ended in 2014…

He tries the same again shortly thereafter, with Fury backed up against the ropes, but misses completely this time.

The pair clinch, with Fury moving his head throughout, so as to avoid giving Chisora a static target as they grapple.

The Britons separate, and Chisora jabs to the body heavily as he tries to close distance. Fury’s counter hooks and uppercuts are stinging the 38-year-old, though.

Fury vs Chisora

20:31 , Alex Pattle

Here’s how Indy Sport broke the news that Fury was in talks to fight Chisora, back in August:

Tyson Fury and Derek Chisora in talks over potential fight this December

Fury vs Chisora

18:06 , Alex Pattle

With Fury being a superior technical boxer to Chisora, the “Gypsy King” is expected to fight behind his jab and outfox his compatriot with his movement tonight. Perhaps Fury will up the aggression as the fight wears on.

Meanwhile, does anyone expect Chisora to do anything other than give it to Fury straight, like a pear cider that’s made from 100 per cent pears?

Fury vs Chisora

18:00 , Alex Pattle

“One of Tyson Fury’s most advantageous traits in the boxing ring, and most enthralling out of it, has always been his unpredictability. The ‘Gypsy King’s ability to awkwardly outbox opponents has perhaps only ever been matched by a similar capacity to outfox them verbally, and to stay several sizeable steps ahead of the masses.

“The Briton must hope, however, that his in-ring aura endures, because its equivalent out of the ring is starting to slip away.

“At October’s press conference at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, hours after it was confirmed that Fury would fight old foe Derek Chisora at that very venue on 3 December, the WBC heavyweight champion came face to face with his challenger.

“And while the eccentricities were as evident as ever, the excitement was absent, for Fury might as well have been reading from a script – continuing to play his part in a much larger work.”

Here was Indy Sport’s reaction when Fury vs Chisora was announced:

Tyson Fury is losing his greatest asset – his unpredictability

Fury vs Chisora

17:29 , Alex Pattle

Here’s Steve Bunce on tonight’s heavyweight title fight:

“Forget friendships, previous fights and form because Tyson Fury and Derek Chisora have agreed a secret deal to stand and fight tonight. It would be nice.

“Fury and Chisora have fought twice, both for the British heavyweight title, and Fury won both times; Fury on points in 2011, and in 2014 Chisora was pulled out at the end of 10 rounds. They have a rivalry and they also have a friendship.

“The fight this evening is for Fury’s WBC heavyweight title and 60,000 people have bought tickets at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium; in April, Fury fought and won in front of 95,000 at Wembley. They are astounding numbers.

“Fury and Chisora arranged the fight a few months ago during a phone call. Fury needed an opponent and Chisora wanted the fight. This week they have been respectful, embraced, shook hands and, at the same time, insisted that they will put on a real show. They shook hands on delivering ‘something unforgettable’.”

Tyson Fury defends the WBC heavyweight title against Derek Chisora at London’s Tottenham Hotspur Stadium tonight.

The Britons have fought one another twice before, with Fury beating his friend on points in 2011 before claiming a TKO victory in their 2014 rematch.

The undefeated Fury, 34, later held the WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO heavyweight titles before a two-year hiatus from the sport gave way to a comeback and his current run as WBC champion, a status he retained by knocking out Dillian Whyte in April.

Meanwhile, 38-year-old Chisora is 33-12 as a professional and most recently beat Kubrat Pulev via split decision in July.
