London – British boxer Tyson Fury defended the title of professional WBC world heavyweight champion. His fight with compatriot Derek Chisora ​​in London was stopped by the referee at the end of the tenth round.

The still undefeated Fury had no trouble confirming his role as the clear favourite, claiming his 33rd victory in the 34th fight of his career. He beat Chisora ​​for the third time on a cold evening at Tottenham’s football stadium in front of 60,000 spectators. In 2011 he won on points and three years later just like today before the limit.

The 34-year-old from Manchester had the upper hand from the start and it was only a matter of time how long Chisora, who was four years his senior, would last. The result was Fury’s 24th win before the limit. Chisora, who finished the bout with a bleeding mouth and swollen eyes, suffered his 13th loss in 46 professional bouts.

“I felt good. I needed a few rounds, I haven’t boxed since April. There were some good punches,” Fury, who was boxing for the first time since defeating compatriot Dillian Whyte at Wembley in the spring, said in the ring. After the match, he announced the end of his career, but he did not stay without boxing for long.

He originally wanted to fight another British star Anthony Joshua today. However, the former WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO champion did not accept the challenge. Fury had only words of praise for Chisora’s “replacement”. After the match, he hugged him, kissed him on the head and even sang to him, as he likes to do after matches.

“It was a pleasure to box him, he’s a British hero. A tough guy. I hit him in a way that would have taken someone else down, but he still came at me,” said Fury.

Right after the match, he challenged the Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk, champion of the WBA, WBO and IBF organizations, who was among the spectators and came to the ring after the match, to a fight. “Usyk, it’s your turn. I’ve already beaten one Ukrainian, Klitschko. So let’s get down to it,” he declared, trying in vain to provoke Usyk into a reaction.
