Tyson Fury vs Derek Chisora Part 3
Tyson Fury and Derek Chisora will clash for the third part of their trilogy of fights on December 3, at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England. They first met in 2011 when Fury won a unanimous decision, scoring 117-112, 117-112 and 118-111 in a fight where he was dominant throughout. There was a rematch three years later, and this time around, Chisora’s team retired him in the tenth round.
In June 2011, Tyson Fury fought Dereck Chisora at the Wembley Arena for the Commonwealth Boxing Council heavyweight belt and British heavyweight belts at stake with both fighters coming in undefeated. Chisora was on a four-fight knockout run and fought like he intended to do the same to Fury. However, he struggled to land telling blows on Fury, with the Gypsy King showing he was the better fighter. In the end, it was a unanimous decision win for Fury.
While Fury continued his unbeaten run after the first fight against Chisora, The Zimbabwean-born Chisora had won six of nine fights between their next meeting. This time around, at the Excel Arena in Dockland, UK, Tyson Fury was even more impressive. Fury was dominant from the beginning and won by technical knockout after Chisora’s corner elected to stop the fight after the 10th round.
Fury’s supremacy in the division has been unmatched, he is undefeated, winning 32 of his 33 fights and drawing one. While his trio of fights with Deoantay Wilder were entertaining, he often comes across as too good for most fighters he has met. Last time out against Dillian Whyte, Fury knocked out his fellow countryman in the sixth round in a pretty one-sided fight, making it the fourth fight Fury has won by knockout in his last five fights.
Right now, only Ukraine’s Oleksandr Usyk looks like the fighter that could pose a challenge for Fury, with the expectation that the fight against Derek Chisora will pave the way for a clash against Usyk that will unify Fury’s WBC crown with Usyk’s WBA, IBF, IBO and WBO championships, making the winner the division’s undisputed champion.
Chisora on the other hand, has had to endure a three-fight losing streak between October 2020 and December 2021, which ended with his split decision victory over Kubrat Pulev in July 2022. However, Chisora hasn’t been knocked out since 2018 by Dillian Whyte and is always willing to dish out as much as he receives.
At 38, Chisora is on the tail end of a long career, he will be aiming to claim one big scalp before calling it quits.
Tale of the Tape
|Tyson Fury||Derek Chisora|
|264.8 lbs||Weight||258.25 lbs|
|85 inches||Reach||74 inches|
Other than his enormous size, Tyson Fury has excellent ring IQ and with an 85-inch reach, he has the longest reach of a champion since Lennox Lewis (84 inches), and Sonny Liston (84.5)
Combine that with a love for fighting and ability to take a hit and you have one of the most dominant fighters in the division. He uses that size to his advantage, often imposing himself physically on smaller opponents.
Derek Chisora loves a slugfest, he is athletic and aggressive, with his strategy often to pressure the opponent throughout the fight. Because of his shorter height, he has worked on lowering this level and coming in under taller opponents. When this works, he can force opponents backwards, pressuring them. However, Fury’s jab is his prime weapon, using that and his weight and size advantage to tire out his opponents.
However, Chisora has one of the toughest chins in boxing and never backs down from a brawl. Fury is well aware of this and will aim to knock Chisora out rather than have the fight go the distance, which gives Chisora the chance of landing a knockout blow as they both tire.
Overwhelmingly, Fury is the favourite for this bout, he has already beaten Chisora twice and has both the size and reach advantage in the bout. However, the longer the fight goes, the more Chisora’s chances of pulling off an incredible upset improve.
While this feels like a stopgap pending when Usyk recovers from his injuries, it is a genuine title shot for Chisora, which he will believe might be his last chance, he will come into the fight with little to lose and a whole lot to gain, this makes him even more dangerous for Fury. This adds extra spice to what promises to be an entertaining contest, in the end, Chisora is unlikely to be able to do enough to dethrone the Gypsy King.
