After defeating Derek Chisora, Tyson Fury successfully defended his WBC heavyweight title. This was the third time that Fury had defeated Chisora. On December 3, the two clashed at London’s Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Ending as It Began
In front of a sold-out audience of 60,000 boxing fans, Fury, 34, faced Chisora, 38. After Fury charged in with all of his might, Chisora had an unmistakably shaky beginning. The one-sided fight was expected to be over fairly early by many spectators, but Chisora was able to persist for an astounding 10 rounds before the referee stopped the contest.
Fury was declared the winner via technical knockout and kept his WBC heavyweight belt as a result. After defeating Dillian Whyte in April, Fury proclaimed his retirement from boxing. However, it didn’t take long for him to announce his comeback to the ring.
Before the bout today, he explained his little break to The Sun, saying, “I was very bored. Sadly, the retirement was brief. “Paris wanted me out of the house. Fury continued, “My real reason is I need to keep myself well in my mind.”
