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.
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.
Billy Joe Saunders 159.7 – Chris Eubank Jr 159.25
Frankie Gavin 146.5 – Bradley Skeete 146.25

Tyson Fury is following Hollywood star Brad Pitt into action and is ready for war against heavyweight rival Dereck Chisora.
Pitt tops the box-office in the UK with his hit movie Fury about an army sergeant in World War Two who commands a tank with a five-man crew in Nazi Germany.
And the undefeated Wilmslow giant posed with a tank as he prepares for his own mission behind enemy lines on Saturday 29th November at the ExCeL London in a massive European, Vacant British and Eliminator for the WBO World title clash against Londoner Chisora.
The Manchester giant turned up at today’s head-to-head press conference with tape strapped over his mouth and “BBBofC?????” written on it – in reference to his £15,000 fine by the Board for misconduct at a previous press conference with Chisora – and vowed to stay silent until fight night.

Fury was left disappointed when Chisora withdrew from their fight yesterday after breaking his hand against Ustinov in their final sparring session, but promoter Frank Warren has moved quick to ensure all Fury’s hard training hasn’t gone to waste and secured him world ranked Ustinov.
From Minsk, the 6ft 7½in Ustinov has been at Chisora’s North London gym for the last two weeks helping him to prepare for Fury, but now finds himself the man in the opposite corner with the chance of causing a huge shock and inflicting the first loss on the Wilmslow giant’s record.
