World Boxing News: Chisora & Fury Return with Wins.

Monday, 17 February 2014  |  Carl


DERECK CHISORA and Tyson Fury were both victorious against their American opponents, Kevin Johnson and Joey Abell, inside the Copper Box Arena on Saturday night.

Johnson - a former world title challenger - was typically stubborn before being floored by a Chisora overhand right in the fifth. But he recovered to survive the round, and the remaining seven, to hear the final bell. Two scores of 118-109 and one of 118-110, awarded Chisora his fifth win in a row. Afterwards he declared an intention to take on former WBA boss Alexander Povetkin in Russia, before fighting Fury in the summer.

Fury also wants one more bout before stepping back with 'Del Boy', whom he outscored in 2011. After weighing in at his heaviest for Joey Abell, some observers predicted that Fury might be beaten. But after a wild beginning, Fury - out of the ring since April last year - removed the rust, and Abell, with four knockdowns in as many rounds.
