Dereck Chisora Takes Away Malik Scott’s Unbeaten Record With Controversial 6th-round Count-Out

chisora101Tonight at Wembley, Dereck Chisora got back to winning ways with a 6th-round stoppage of previously unbeaten Malik Scott. The ending, at the very least a slightly controversial one, came at the two minute and 56-seconds mark of the 6th.

Chisora, in improving to 17-4(11) said after the fight that he wants to go back to Germany to fight the Klitschkos, again in the case of WBC king Vitali. Scott, now 35-1-1(12) said “everyone knows I beat the count,” yet otherwise took the defeat graciously.

So, now to the controversy. Scott, ahead on the cards at the time of the stoppage and having boxed very well, was belted by a right hand shot that landed on the back of the head as he was on the ropes. Scott went down, smiling as he did so, appearing relatively unhurt. Continue reading

Chisora TKOs Scott in unusual stoppage

chisora100American Malik Scott (35-1-1, 12 KO’s) was on the receiving end up a terrible, terrible 6th round stoppage against Britain’s Dereck Chisora (17-4, 11 KO’s) tonight at the Wembley Arena in London, UK. Scott hit the deck in the 6th after getting hit with a looping right hand that hit him in the back of the head.

Scott stayed down on his knees until the referee counted to 9, and then Scott got back to his feet. The referee halted the fight anyway much to the shock of Scott, his team, as well the British fans. It looked like the referee might have been confused in the amount of fingers he was holding up because Scott was clearly on his feet at the count of 9. Continue reading

Chisora: Malik Scott will gas out; he’s going to get stopped

chisora6Heavyweight Dereck Chisora (16-4, 10 KO’s) is predicting that American Malik Scott (35-0-1, 12 KO’s) will run out of gas tonight at some point from his pressure and end up getting stopped before the finish line at the Wembley Arena in London, UK. Chisora thinks he’ll wear Scott down with his constant pressure that he puts on him.

Chisora said to The Sun, “Malik Scott is going to get stopped because he ain’t got a clue. He’s going to gas out. When the thing starts hitting the fan most people fold.”

The thing with Chisora is he doesn’t always win even when he wears down his opponents with his pressure. We saw Chisora tire WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko and Robert Helenius both out and still lose to both of them. Continue reading

Chisora vs Scott: Don Charles Interview

Judgement Day looms for Dereck Chisora at Wembley Arena on Saturday.

The enigmatic Finchley heavyweight has lost his last four title fights –albeit in rarefied company – and knows he simply can’t afford another blip if he’s to cement his standing among the world’s elite.

But the 29 year old former British and Commonwealth king will need to be at his rumbling, raging best if he’s to progress past leading US contender Malik Scott, who remains unbeaten in a 36 fight pro career that spans 13 years.

Malik Scott: Chisora’s a salesman

Unbeaten American heavyweight Malik Scott (35-0-1, 12 KO’s) sees British heavyweight Dereck Chisora (16-4, 10 KO’s) as mainly a marketing fighter that is best as selling his fights rather than in performing in them. Scott notes that Chisora was able to get a title shot against WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko with only 17 fights under his belt last year. Scott and Chisora will be fighting this Saturday night at the Wembley Arena in London, UK.

Scott said to BoxNation “He’s [Chisora] a salesman. It’s all calculated. He knows what he’s doing. It’s worked for him. I don’t know anybody that had 16 fights and was fighting for the Championship of the World. When you’re in with me you’re dealing with a lot of different attributes. We know about what he’s coming with. He’s coming right at me. I’m going to be setting traps and I’m going to be tagging him…if Dereck wants to f*** all his money up and act stupid, it’s on him. F*** his antics!” Continue reading

Chisora: I’m going to do a number on Malik Scott and pack him off to America

scott35Dereck Chisora (16-4, 10 KO’s) has a tough fight on his hands against undefeated American heavyweight Malik Scott (35-0-1, 12 KO’s) this Saturday night in London, UK. The fight is scheduled for 10 rounds instead of 12, so that’s something that could possibly help Chisora because he’s not going to be able to out-box a fighter like Scott.

Chisora believes it’s going to be a fairly easy fight, but his recent performances don’t suggest that’s possible.

Chisora said to the Telegraph, “I’m going to do a real good job on this boy and pack him back off to America, defeated…I’m happy now that I’ve looked into his eyes and I see the boy is scared.” Continue reading

Dereck Chisora vs. Malik Scott & Frampton vs. Briceno this Saturday, July 20th in London

scott33British heavyweight Dereck Chisora (16-4, 10 KO’s) will be trying to turn around his struggling career this Saturday night in a scheduled 10 round bout against unbeaten American Malik Scott (35-0-1, 12 KO’s) at the Wembley Arena in London, England. Scott, 32, is the world class contender in this fight, while Chisora is a 2nd tier fighter trying to turn his career around after having lost four out of his last five fights.

You can ignore Chisora’s loss to WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko, because he’s a really good fighter, but Chisora’s losses to Robert Helenius, David Haye and Tyson Fury shows that Chisora is a level below those fighters in the talent department. Continue reading
