How the fighters compare
Derek Chisora will face Tyson Fury for the THIRD time in his career
A whopping 94,000 fans, a British record, filled the England football team’s national stadium that night to watch Fury defend his WBC heavyweight crown before announcing his retirement in the ring after.
His retirement didn’t last long, however, as toward the end of the summer he called out Anthony Joshua for a massive money-spinning clash.
Talks failed to materialise, however, and now Fury is on the precipice of finalising a deal to fight Chisora, who beat Kubrat Pulev in exciting fashion in July.
Chisora has clashed with Fury twice before, though, losing the first on points before being stopped in their 2014 sequel.
And now, the two British heavyweights are set to fight for a third time in the most expensive showing on BT Sport Box Office EVER.

How to box efficiently
Boxing is a popular sport. It is made up of two competitors who aim to knock the head off each other. The rules of boxing vary from country to country. There are generally three types of boxing: Amateur, Professional, and Olympic.
Amateur boxing usually takes place at school, college and university. This type of boxing allows sparring without protection. Amateur boxing contests are usually three rounds in length, lasting five minutes each. There are many different styles of amateur boxing including Kickboxing, Muay Thai, Taekwondo, Karate, Judo, Wrestling and others.
Boxing is typically practiced in clubs, stadiums or gyms. They are equipped with protective equipment including a mouthpiece and nose guard, shinguards as well as elbow pads, knee pads. Waist belts and groin protectors. Professional boxing competitions consist of six rounds lasting four minutes each. There are many styles of professional boxing: Boxing, MMA (Mixed Martial Arts), Kickboxing and Muay Thai.
Olympic boxing is practiced at the Olympics. Special protective gear must be worn by boxers to ensure compliance with international standards. The competition lasts eight rounds of three minutes each. Olympic boxing has only two styles, Light Flyweight vs Heavyweight.
Boxing’s fundamental skills are:
- Punching techniques
- Guarding techniques
- Body movement
- Spare parts
There are seven types: Left Hook (right hook), Right Hook (uppercut), Cross (cross), Straight, Overhand, Underhand. Each punch is unique. Some punches need more power than others. For example, an uppercut is a powerful punch. On the other hand, a straight punch requires less power but it is faster than other punches.
There are also many combinations. These are combinations of punches which work together to achieve a goal. One combination can have many parts. For example, a left hook followed by a right cross will cause damage to the opponent’s jaw.
A boxer uses his body to protect himself against attacks. He does this by using his legs, arms, elbows, hands, knees and feet.
To defend against kicks, a boxer should use his legs. If he gets kicked, he raises one leg and turns away from his attacker. If the attacker is coming from the front, he will bend at the knees to avoid getting kicked on either side. But if the attack comes in the back, he will stand straight and block the kick using his foot.
Elbow strikes are very powerful because they inflict great pain. An elbow strike can be delivered directly or indirectly. Directly means that your opponent is hit with your forearm. However, indirectly means that your elbow strike is delivered with another part or your arm.
Boxers use both their hands and arms to prevent incoming blows. To do so, they raise their fists above their head and move them towards the direction of the attack. Then they make contact with the attacker’s fist.
Boxers should bend their knees when receiving blows to the abdomen, stomach, or chest. Defense purposes are often served by knee strikes.
If he is being attacked, a boxer must take a step back and counter-attack. This will allow him to gain distance from his opponent. Boxers should also keep their balance when counter-attacking.
Boxing is only possible if a boxer has a clear stance. His stance determines how he defends himself. It defines where he faces his opponent and how he positions his body. Boxers can take many different stances. Here are some of the more popular ones:
- Low stance
- High stance
- Southpaw stance
- Western stance
A boxer must change his position, speed and rhythm in order to win the fight. This involves changing positions, speed, rhythm and timing.
Rotating his arm to increase the puncher’s reach is a key part of boxing. Different types of punches require different speeds for the rotation.
The timing of each punch will determine the effectiveness and efficiency of a combination. A combination that is effective starts with a strong punch, and ends with one that is weak.
Sparring is an exercise session to improve boxing skills. A sparring session is where a boxer trains both his mind and his body. The goal of sparring is to learn to fight, and not to get hurt.
It is important to be patient and dedicated when learning how to box. Boxing is a sport that requires dedication and perseverance.
