On Saturday night, inside of the O2 Arena in London, heavyweight contender Dillian Whyte scored a brutal 11th round knockout over rugged Dereck Chisora in a rematch of their 2016 thriller. A highlight reel left hook from Whyte ended what was a competitive matchup beforehand, and left Chisora floored and all but out.
Whyte (25-1, 18 KO’s) was ranked #1 by the WBC and WBO heading into the matchup, and now looks to have an inside track towards a rematch with IBF/WBA/WBO champion Anthony Joshua. Chisora (29-9, 21 KOs) was deducted two points in the contest, one for a low blow in the eighth and later for an elbow in the 11th, yet was ahead on two scorecards (95-94) at the time of the stoppage.
