Fury pummels Derek Chisora to retain WBC world heavyweight title

  • Sports

British heavyweight boxing champion, Tyson ‘Gipsy King’ Fury brutally defeated Derek Chisora to retain WBC world heavyweight title on Saturday night.

Fury maintained firm dominance seeing referee end the match in the 10th round at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Though expected to cause an upset, Chisora, 38, could not match the Gipsy King, punch for punch.

With Saturday’s win, Fury extended his unbeaten record, out punching and handing Chisora his 13th defeat in 46 career fights.

Fury, 34, looks forward to a fight with Oleksandr Usyk, who currently holds the IBF, IBO, WBO and WBA belts. The Gipsy King, however, said he would take a fight with Joe Joyce if Usyk is unavailable.

“There’s plenty more to come. Let me say there’s a lot of big fights to happen next year,” Fury told Sky Sports News after the game on Saturday.

 “I said if Usyk can’t be made early next year, we’ll take Joe Joyce at Wembley and sell out another 90,000 tickets here in the UK, the capital of sports entertainment in the world.”
