Fury vs. Chisora 3 – Tonight’s Live Results From London
By Mark Eisner: WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (33-0, 24 KOs) put on a clinching & mauling display in stopping journeyman Derek Chisora (33-13, 23 KOs) by a tenth round knockout on Saturday night at the Tottenham Hotspurs Stadium in London, England.
Referee Victor Loughlin stopped the fight at 2:51 of round ten due to the one-sided nature of the contest. The 6’9″ Fury was landing & then falling in for a clinch.
The fight was boring to watch, as Fury looked flabby & out of shape and clinching nonstop.
Neither fighter was hurt during the contest. The stoppage was due to Chisora being exhausted, slow, and unable to land.

Dubois took advantage of Lerena’s failure to go for the finish in round two by using his power advantage to drop the South African twice in the third round. Dubois knocked Lerena down with a straight right in the third. Moments later, Dubois landed three vicious uppercuts to the head of Lerena to send him down for the second time in the round, prompting referee Howard Foster to halt the contest.

Preview: In the exciting co-feature bout, WBA ‘regular’ heavyweight champion Daniel Dubois (18-1, 17 KOs) will face Kevin Lerena (28-1, 14 KOs).
“Although he’s a well-rounded fighter now, he’s not as fresh as he was ten years ago, but he’s learned how to stay out of the way of the usual shots he was getting hit with in the past,” said David Haye to Behind The Gloves about Derek Chisora on how he’s transformed from his last fight against Tyson Fury in 2014.
“So if it can all culminate together and Tyson Fury wants to give the fans and Derek ain’t going anywhere, Derek ain’t going to try and outbox him. Derek has a short only if Tyson Fury gives him a shot.
“It’s up to Tyson Fury. He’s kind of in complete control in this fight, but if he gives up control, he loses an element of his massive advantages that he comes into the ring with.
“It makes so much sense,” said Haye about IBF, WBA & WBO heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk being ringside for tonight’s Fury vs. Chisora 3 clash at Tottenham Hotspurs Stadium.
“Depending on how Tyson Fury deals with Derek. If he comes out and blasts [Chisora out]. Derek isn’t a small guy, but height-wise, he’s small, shorter than he is. If he can come out and get rid of Derek. It took me five rounds to knock Derek out.
“It was ten years ago, and he was a lot fresher. He’s got a lot more smarts now. If he [Fury] can knock him out in a similar fashion and get Derek out of there early, then he can get Usyk out of there early,” said Haye.
Tyson Fury will be looking to close the chapter in his one-sided fights with the capable Derek Chisora tonight when the two meet for their trilogy bout at Tottenham Hotspurs Stadium in London, England.
