Dereck Chisora – Career Revived!

Dereck Chisora’s thunderous knockout of Carlos Takam was a reminder that all it takes in Boxing is just one devastating punch to change the outcome of a fight.

On Referee Howard Foster’s scorecard, Takam had won 6 of the 7 rounds before Chisora’s brutal knockout of Takam in round 8 who had looked on occasions a punch or two away from stopping Chisora with Foster watching closely.

The jackpot punch has revived crowd-favourite Chsora’s career who has previously fought for the world title against Vitali Klitchko and has featured on many top of the bill contests against fighters such as Former Heavyweight Champion David Haye, Tyson Fury on two occasions and Heavyweight contender Kubrat Pulev.

Many fight fans would like to see a grudge rematch against Dillian Whyte which Chisora lost on a split decision in which it would not have been a very controversial decision had Chisora been judged the winner.

Whyte is on a crest of a wave after defeating Joseph Parker and although a grudge rematch against Chisora would be a mouthwatering prospect, Whyte seems reluctant to fight Chisora again just now as he is perhaps one more fight away from fighting for a world title whether it be a rematch against Anthony Joshua next April or perhaps WBC Champion Deontay Wilder should both fighters remain undefeated.

After Chisora’s stunning victory, his popularity as a fighter has never been higher and he will be keen for a big-money fight against a top 10 fighter.¬† Perhaps a rematch against Takam would appeal to fight fans in what was arguably the best fight of the night¬† or could Joseph Parker be a potential opponent who will be keen to prove that he can still be a major contender in the Heavyweight Division despite losing his last two fights.
