Personally I expected Dereck Chisora to put up a better fight against Tyson Fury on Saturday night / Sunday morning, but it never quite happened for the London fight.

Chisora, once Fury switched to southpaw, never got near enough to his opponent to trouble him and was so far behind when his corner pulled him he needed a knockout that was never going to come, even more so with his face marked up badly and blood trickling from a cut.

After the fight, the promoter Frank Warren admitted that he?d forced the stoppage, remarking,

?I told the corner-men to stop the fight. Dereck was nine rounds behind so there was no point in letting him carry on.?

The defeat leaves Chisora pondering where to go next. His chances of bouncing back and heading back towards a possible tilt at a world title look limited. There are, of course, fights out there for him, but does Chisora want to be lined up to fight the up and coming brigade who would simply see him as a big-name on their records, or is it time for Dereck to slip away quietly?

I guess only Dereck knows the real answer!
