Tyson Fury (23-0, 17 KOs) defeated Dereck Chisora (20-5, 12 KOs) via a tenth-round stoppage after Chisora’s corner deemed him unable to continue.

The scheduled 12-round Heavyweight fight, which was held at the ExCel Arena in London, United Kingdom, was presented by Queensberry Promotions, BoxNation, and ESPN3.

Fury, 26, of Manchester, United Kingdom, fought each round the way he fought the first one, by using a long jab and by using his reach and height advantages to avoid punches.

Chisora, 30, of Mbare, Zimbabwe, struggled to make the fight as competitive as their first encounter as he was easily kept at bay by Fury’s long jab.

Chisora tried to give him angles and tried to come in with the jab, but the most he could land were body punches (some of which were actually below the belt).

By the tenth round, after series of right hands, uppercuts and hooks left Chisora a bloody mess, his corner finally stopped the fight.

Fury is now the number one contender for Wladimir Klitschko’s WBO title.

Whether that fight will happen remains to be seen, but Fury’s height might be an interesting factor.

Nevertheless, Klitschko is the undisputed champion of the world and it is unlikely that Fury or Chisora will pose a threat to him.
