Tyson Fury successfully defended his WBC world heavyweight title by knocking out Derek Chisora to set up a potential undisputed bout with Oleksandr Usyk.

Chisora, 38, was repeatedly hurt by the dominant champion, and the referee stopped the one-sided fight in the 10th round.

Usyk, the IBF, IBO, WBO, and WBA belt holder, was ringside in London.

It was Chisora’s 13th defeat in 46 fights, and his fourth in the last five.

The pair shook hands earlier this week and promised to go toe-to-toe in the first three minutes, with Chisora promising “the best first round the heavyweight game has ever seen.”

And, despite the cold conditions at an outdoor December night event in London, the two fighters attempted to provide the entertainment they had promised.

However, the fight was a mismatch because Fury was a level above his opponent, and he can now look forward to a potential undisputed heavyweight clash with Ukrainian Usyk in 2023.

Fury, who returned to the ring after announcing his retirement from boxing in April, has set at least three fights for 2023. Following that, he challenged two opponents at the same time: Usyk and unbeaten Briton Joe Joyce.

When asked about fighting Usyk, Fury responded, “Where’s the rabbit?”

As Usyk confronted him at the ropes, Fury added: “Usyk, you’re next, 15 stone little body-building midget. I’ve done one Ukrainian, [Wladimir] Klitchsko, let’s get it on.”

However, Fury stated in a later interview with ESPN that he was having hand issues and may need surgery on his right elbow, which would take “about 6-8 weeks to heal.”
