Dereck Chisora came out swinging in the opener as expected, but Dillian Whyte countered him well and appeared to buzz the older man with a couple of solid right hands.
Chisora took the initiative throughout and fought on the front foot, pressuring his opponent well, though Whyte consistently fired back with impressive counter shots. War broke out in the third and fourth rounds particularly. The North London native smothered his South London rival, preventing him from countering and forcing him to fire back at short range. By way of this tactic, Chisora appeared to have picked up a decent lead by the halfway stage as he delivered on his promise to bring a high-tempo style, however, it ultimately could not last the distance
By the eighth, Dereck looked to have slowed and was deducted a point after being consistently warned by referee Marcus Morrison for low blows. The ninth and tenth sessions appeared to be Chisora’s last stands as he attempted to pick his tempo back up, though Whyte matched him and they went toe-to-toe once again.
The end came in the eleventh, with Dillian Whyte looking by far the fresher man.
