Chisora Ends Scott’s Unbeaten Record

Over at Wembley Arena last night, heading a top class bill, Dereck Chisora got his career back on track in emphatic style.

Chisora who knew this was a fight he had to win, after several recent set-backs, entered the ring, for his contest with the unbeaten American Malik Scott looking the fittest he’d been for ages.

As expected it was the unbeaten American who started the better using his slick boxing skills to keep Chisora at bay, landing punches in clusters and then moving away.

But gradually Chisora started to come into the fight and from round three onwards started to catch the American with some good body-shots.

Scott looking to be tiring tried to hold on several times and Chisora appeared to know that he now had a more than decent chance of putting a blemish on the American’s long unbeaten record.

That moment came in round six when a powerful right saw Scott slump to the canvas. Clearly dazed the American struggled to his feet as the count hit 9 but the refer looked deep into Scott’s eyes and called a halt to proceedings.

Although some might view the stoppage as controversial believing the American could have been given another chance, Chisora looked destined to win this one and although the American pleaded his case, after the fight, remarking,

'He hit me with a good shot.'

'I gave myself an eight, got up at nine and everywhere in America the count goes up to 10.”

'Everyone knows I beat the count but Dereck won a clear fair, fight and we're not going to turn this into something.'


Credit goes to Scott for his attitude, even more so; after losing that long 36 fight unbeaten run.

As for Chisora, he’ll be looking to get straight back into the world title picture and another pop at one of the Klitschko brothers.
