Whyte vs. Chisora 2 Recap – Whyte Ends Rivalry with Brutal KO

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Dillian Whyte scored an eleventh-round KO win over Dereck Chisora in the main event at the O2 Arena on Saturday. Whyte, who won the pair’s first meeting by split-decision, was losing the fight on two of the judges scorecards before the knockout.

Whyte vs. Chisora 2 – Fight Recap

True to his word, Dereck Chisora came out firing from the start, with Whyte sitting back and looking to counter. Chisora maintained adequate pressure for most of the fight, forcing Whyte to work hard just to keep him off. Similar to their first meeting, a lot of the rounds were close, with both men showing grit and toughness as they traded heavy blows.

While Chisora remained the overall aggressor, Whyte appeared to be landing the cleaner punches. Chisora was deducted a point in the eighth round for a low blow and lost another point in the eleventh for using his elbow before eventually getting caught with a clean left hook right on the button that put him out cold.

After the fight, Dillian Whyte (now 25-1) called WBA, WBO, and IBF heavyweight champion, and former opponent, Anthony Joshua into the ring to ask for a rematch. Joshua stated that if he could not secure a fight with WBC champion Deontay Wilder, he would indeed fight Whyte again.

On the undercard, Ryan Walsh (UK) defeated Reece Bellotti (UK) by split decision to win the British featherweight title. Charlie Edwards (UK) outpointed Nicaragua’s Cristofer Rosales to win the WBC flyweight title.

  • Jermall Charlo UD12 Matvey Korobov
  • Tony Harrison UD12 Jermell Charlo
  • Hassan N’dam UD12 Martin Murray
  • Liam Williams TKO10 Mark Heffron
  • Billy Joe Saunders RTD4 Charles Adamu
  • Michael Conlan UD10 Jason Cunningham

Like the first fight, this was an entertaining slug-fest. Chisora fought well and in my opinion was winning going into the eleventh, but as we all know, all it takes is one punch in the heavyweight division. Whyte proved he is as tough as nails and is as dangerous as ever at this point in his career.

With Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury likely headed towards a rematch of their own, it looks like Dillian Whyte might get his well-deserved rematch against Anthony Joshua after a successful 2018 that also saw him defeat Lucas Browne and Joseph Parker.

Would a Joshua-Whyte rematch end differently than the first fight? Comment below with your opinion.

Sports as We Know It May Never Look the Same Again

This lockdown has given us so many of the bad things we never really thought we'd see: widespread job loss, rampant hospitalization and deaths, and the major, sticking-out-like-a-sore-thumb kind of problems in society.

Many people said that sports is only important to sports fans, but it's becoming more evident that the purpose of sports isn't just exclusively athletic. Now, it seems like...

Russian GP – Race Preview

Russian Grand Prix can be a boring race so let's hope this race gets off to a great start. The only memory I have of the Russian GP is Valtteri Bottas letting Lewis Hamilton win. Last race at Mugello was an exciting race. With two red flags and one horrible crash. And Ferrari 1000 celebration wasn't the best either, but that might be because of the strict rules now during COVID 19. So I am happy...

Benny Leonard: Always A Champion

If you sat down with a group of boxing fans under the age of say, 50, and began to talk about whether Benny Leonard really is a Top-10 all-time fighter, you'd probably have a cacophony of voices barking at you about how great "Sugar" Ray really was. Tell them you were talking about Benny Leonard though, and you might hear a lot of "Who's that?" from the same group. But Benny Leonard most definitely belongs...
