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

Delusional, that’s a word you’ll have heard regularly within the world of boxing in the modern era and one you will hear more and more as we approach a series of grudge matches that has lit a fire beneath British boxing that is likely to see the levels of bluster reach fever pitch. It’s a word that has always interested me, simply because despite its negative connotations it is such a crucial weapon in the armory of a professional fighter.
The manifestations of such behavior is of course dictated by an individuals personality, but believe me, to a man, every boxer, journeyman aside, have convinced themselves completely that they have the beating of their opponent. To me, the only difference between these assertions being considered delusion rather than belief is the manner in which you choose to state it. In an era when self-promotion is as important to a fighters earning potential as skill, delusion has become somewhat of an art form and three of its chief exponents will benefit in the coming weeks.

British heavyweight Tyson Fury (22-0, 16 KOs) still hasn’t taken care of Dereck Chisora in their rematch next month and yet Fury already has his eyes set on who he wants to fight next. Fury says he wants to fight undefeated and untested British prospect Anthony Joshua (9-0, 9 KOs) so that he can prove himself against him.
Never mind the fact that a fight between Fury and Joshua would make no sense at this point considering that Joshua isn’t a belt holder, and has never beaten anyone remotely talented. Fury still feels like it’s a fight that he wants. Continue reading
