Tyson Fury defends WBC title against Dereck Chisora

Tyson Fury is not so easy to interview when he has just fought. Sooner or later he will take hold of the microphone that is held out to him to loudly announce his point of view to the outside world; why are you finally world champion (version WBC) in the heavyweight division? On Saturday evening, the 34-year-old professional boxer from the English seaside resort of Morcambe explained to the 62,000 spectators at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium that they had just witnessed “history”: a packed open-air arena for a boxing evening in December. That has never happened before in this latitude.

If you look at the great spectacle of the 34th ring duel of the still undefeated, 2.06 meter tall giant (33 wins, 1 draw) from the point of view of a powerful event culture, it may actually have been a direct hit for eyewitnesses – especially since the “Gypsy King” , so his nickname, started singing, blaspheming and cursing extensively. From a purely sporting point of view, however, the demolition victory over compatriot Dereck Chisora ​​was an event to forget. There was never any real tension as to which of the well-known opponents would win the third meeting, and critical observers had predicted this even before the first gong.
