Tyson Fury Defeats Derek Chisora
Tyson Fury retained his World Boxing Council heavyweight title with a decisive stoppage win over British rival Derek Chisora on Saturday before setting his sights on a blockbuster unification bout against Oleksandr Usyk.
The result was rarely in doubt with Fury, still unbeaten as a professional, in control from the opening bell.
And with Chisora's eyes starting to close, referee Victor Loughlin stopped the fight nine seconds before the end of the 10th round at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The 34-year-old now boasts a record of 33 wins from 34 fights with one draw.
Fury's latest win also paved the way for a unification bout with Usyk, the IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight champion.
Usyk was at ringside on Saturday as he returned to the venue where he deprived Britain's Anthony Joshua of all those titles in September last year before defeating him again in Jeddah this July.
And soon after a comprehensive win, Fury was involved in a face-off with Usyk as the Ukrainian entered the ring.
Fury, after thanking a crowd of some 60 000 and paying tribute to his beaten opponent by leading spectators in a chant of "One Derek Chisora", turned his attention to Usyk with British heavyweight Joe Joyce also coming onto the ring apron.
