Derek Chisora Face Defeat as Tyson Fury Retain WBC Heavyweight Title
On Saturday night, Tyson “Gipsy King” Fury, the WBC world heavyweight champion, mercilessly dispatched Derek Chisora to retain his championship.
At Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Fury continued to exert a tight hold over the fight until the referee called time on the tenth round.
Chisora, 38, was not able to match the Gipsy King punch for punch despite being predicted to deliver an upset.
With his victory on Saturday, Fury continued his winning streak, outpunching Chisora to suffer his 13th loss in 46 professional contests.
The 34-year-old Fury is eager to face Oleksandr Usyk, who is the current IBF, IBO, WBO, and WBA champion. The Gipsy King, however, declared that if Usyk is unable to fight, he would instead challenge Joe Joyce.
“There will be a ton more. Let me just say that there are going to be a lot of great fights in 2019,” Fury said to Sky Sports News following the game on Saturday.
If Usyk can’t be made early in the following year, I replied, “We’ll take Joe Joyce at Wembley and sell out another 90,000 seats here in the UK, the capital of sports entertainment in the world.”
