British heavyweight Tyson Fury is now a step closer to a facing Wladimir Klitschko after outpointing Dereck Chisora for the British and Commonwealth titles.
Quicker, stronger and more technically skilled, Fury remained in control for the entire 12 rounds at Wembley Arena in London, with his opponent only managing to shake him once in the second round.
In the end, all three judges gave the well-deserved victory to the 23-year-old, scoring it 117-112, 117-112 and 118-111.
“This is a dream come true, and it means the world to me,” Fury said after the bout.
It was the 15th professional career win for the undefeated Brit, who now sees the door open for a potential world title shot against one of the Klitschko brothers later this year.
WBA, WBO and IBF title holder Wladimir Klitschko earlier promised to give such a chance to the victorious fighter in the Fury vs. Chisora match.
