The rumours that have been gathering pace for some time in Britain regarding a potential summer fight between Finchley’s Dereck Chisora (20-5, 13ko) (who, incidentally has dropped the ‘c’ from his first name on twitter!) and Liverpool’s David Price (19-2, 16ko) may need to be put to bed after a social media exchange this afternoon between Chisora himself and Price’s promoters Sauerland Event, appeared to kill any hope fans had of the fight being made.
The saga began with a brief tweet from Kalle and Nisse Sauerland, regarding the proposed June 6th return of Price to the UK, and a potential showdown with Chisora. It read; Continue reading
The UK heavyweight scene has seen some major ups and downs in the last few years. We have seen Chisora and Haye both challenge Klitschkos and lose and we could see another challenge from a UK fighter at some point, as Tyson Fury is now a WBO mandatory. Some fighters along the lines of David Price, Dereck Chisora and Audley Harrison in particular have really fallen off the map as of late after some upsetting defeats. >
David Price received his second consecutive knockout loss in the rematch to Tony Thompson in 2013 and showed that maybe he did not have the skill set to compete at the highest level of the fight game. Continue reading
Tyson Fury moved into the mandatory contender position for Wladimir Klitschko’s WBO World Heavyweight title with his victory over Dereck Chisora last night at the ExCeL London.
The Manchester ace took his undefeated record to 23 wins when he forced Chisora to retire in the tenth round with a dominant performance to earn his shot at the long reigning Ukrainian king. Continue reading
Tyson Fury (23-0, 17 KOs) proved to be much too good for Dereck Chisora (20-5, 13 KOs) tonight in beating him by a 10th round stoppage in their rematch at the ExCel Arena in London, UK. With Chisora bleeding and bruised, his trainer pulled him out of the fight after the 10th round. Chisora was a punching bag and his trainer did the right thing in opting not to let him continue into the 11th.
Fury, 6’9”, spent much of the fight switching from southpaw to orthodox in peppering a badly over-matched Chisora with jabs and power punches. Chisora was able to crowd him, but he was unable to let go of his shots for some reason. It’s hard to explain why Chisora couldn’t pull the trigger on his shots, but perhaps he over-trained. He looked in great shape, but he was unable to throw more than 2-3 punches per round. Continue reading
Boxing fans have plenty to be thankful for with a jam-packed holiday weekend which includes a return trip to Omaha on HBO Championship Boxing and a rematch across the pond between much hated Heavyweight rivals.
Let’s start with a rematch pitting Tyson Fury against Derrick Chisora at the ExCel Arena from Dockland, London. These two characters met over four years ago in a back and forth fight that saw Tyson Fury walk away victorious.
The combatants traded punches and rounds until somewhere in the middle the pace slowed to a crawl with both fighters gassed. Fury’s excessive holding and Chisora’s inactivity made for an uneven contest. Continue reading
