By Ken Hissner: At Tottenham Hotspur indoor Stadium, Tottenham, UK, before 65,000 in attendance Saturday over ESPN+ Bob Arum (Top Rank Boxing) and Frank Warren (Queensberry Boxing) in the Main Event both from the UK, WBC World Heavyweight champion stopped Derek “War” Chisora in their third meeting giving him a beating stopping him in the eleventh round.

In the co-feature, WBA World Heavyweight champion “Triple D” Daniel ‘Dynamite’ Dubois of the UK came off the canvas three times in the first round to bounce back and stop IBO Inter-Continental champion Kevin “The KO Kid” Lerena of South Africa.

In the Main Event, WBC World champ Tyson “The Gypsy King” Fury, 33-0-1 (24), #268.6, of Morecambe, Lancashire, UK, stopped Derek “War” Chisora, 33-13 (23), #260.6, of Mbare, Zimbabwe and Finchley, London, UK, at 2:51 of the tenth round of a lopsided 12.

In the first round, Chisora outworked Fury though Fury clinched, putting all his weight on Chisora, trying to wear him down in that way with more wrestling than boxing. In the second round, Fury landed well, easily taking the round.

In the third round, after twenty seconds, Fury hurt Chisora with a right on the chin. Halfway through the round, a left uppercut from Fury on the chin of Chisora got his attention. In the fourth round, there was more holding, and Referee Victor Loughlin is too small to do much in breaking them. Chisora did well despite the holding.

In the fifth round, at times, Fury went southpaw. Midway in the round, Fury rocked Chisora with a solid right on the chin. The last-minute Fury tied Chisora up, wearing him down. In the sixth and seventh rounds for a big man, Fury is light on his feet. His left short uppercut lands well on his chin of Chisora. Fury turned southpaw in the final minute doing well. Whenever Chisora starts an offense, Fury ties him up. Chisora landed more punches in this round than ever but not enough to win the round.

In the eighth round, Fury came out like he wanted to end it, landing some big punches rocking Chisora. Just before the bell, a right from Fury on the chin put Chisora back several steps. Chisora spent too much time against the ropes being a “sitting duck” for Fury.

In the ninth round, final minute, Fury had the mouth of Chisora bleeding and his right eye with a lot of swelling around it, all set to finish the fight. In the tenth round, the referee was looking to stop it on several occasions since Chisora’s corner won’t.

Chisora showed a lot of heart throughout, but he is simply outgunned and outmuscled. In the final seconds, referee Loughlin finally waved it off after warning Chisora to throw more punches, and Chisora walked to his corner a beaten man. Fury showed good sportsmanship when it was over going to the corner of Chisora.

In the co-feature WBA Regular World champ “Triple D” Daniel ‘Dynamite’ Dubois, 19-1 (18), #240.6, of Greenwich, London, UK, came off the canvas in the first to stop IBO Inter-Continental champ Kevin “The Underdog” Lerena, 28-2 (14), #230.9, of Johannesburg, South Africa, at the bell in the second of a 12.

In the first round, Lerena dropped Dubois with a left on the chin for an 8-count from Referee Howard Foster. Shortly later, Dubois dropped to a knee on his own without being hit for a second knockdown. In the final minute, a combination barely with much on them landed and down went Dubois for the third time.

In the second round, Lerena barely threw a punch letting Dubois off the hook and giving the round to Dubois. In the third round, Dubois landed a right on the chin and down went Lerena obviously hurt, taking an 8-count from referee Foster.

Dubois went right after Lerenda and landed a crushing right uppercut knocking the head of Lerena back, following with two more punches having him out on his feet when referee Foster jumped in, calling a halt as the bell sounded.

What a turnaround in a fight that looked like Dubois was quitting in the first to come back and win by stoppage.

I wouldn’t think Dubois would have much of a chance with Fury, but he showed some power in this one, and with the heavyweights, it only takes one punch.

EBU European Lightweight champ southpaw Yvan “The Lion” Mendy, 47-6-1 (22), #134.6, of Pont-Sainte-Maxence, Oise, France, lost in a lopsided decision to 2012 Olympic Silver Medalist and WBO International champ Denys Berinchyk, 16-0 (9), #134.75, of Kyiv, UKR, over 12 dull rounds.

In the first three rounds, southpaw Berinchyk used an effective jab against the defensive-minded Mendy, whose hands held high and protects his chin but leaves his body open, while Berinchyk occasionally would be switched to orthodox to land a right to the midsection.

In the sixth round, the holding by Mendy and the use of the head by Berinchyk continue. Berinchyk has won every round with such little offense from Mendy. Even though he had been inactive for a year, he looks like the fresher of the two.

In the tenth round, Berinchyk pushed Mendy to the canvas, and Referee John Latham never warned him but motioned to Mendy to a corner like to re-coup. At the end of the eleventh round, Berinchyk pushed down on Mendy’s shoulders, who had come in low and was warned for pushing down on Mendy.

In the twelfth and final round, Berinchyk’s corner continued yelling instructions the entire fight. Something he wouldn’t get away with in most US states. In the final half-round, they both started opening up, with Mendy barely hitting the target. Not a crowd-pleasing fight before this large indoor crowd.

Scores were 117-112, 116-112 twice, with 120-108 from this writer. How they gave Mendy rounds is beyond me.

Light Heavy Karol Itauma, 9-0 (7), #177.1, of Kezmarok, Slovakia and Charham, Kent, UK, stopped Vladimir Belujsky, 12-6-1 (8), #176.6, of Kezmarok, Slovakia and Mitchlstown, IRE, at 1:18 of the eighth and final round.

In the first four rounds, Itauma controlled the fight winning all four rounds. In the seventh round, Itauma dropped Belujsky for an 8-count from referee Lee Every.

Lightweight southpaw Royston Barney Smith, 3-0 (1), #133.8, of Southhampton, UK, Cruz “Pit Bull” Perez, 3-3 (1), #132.25, of Boaco, NIC, at 1:02 of the first of a 6.

In the first round, a left from southpaw Smith to the head and down went Perez, who Referee Mark Bates felt was unable to continue and waved it off.

The ring Announcer was Jimmy Lennon.
