Chisora scores 8th round knockout over Takam in sensational fight.
In a wonderful heavyweight scrap for the vacant World Boxing Association International heavyweight title, former world title challengers Dereck Chisora (29-8, 21 KOs) and Carlos Takam (35-5-1, 27 KOs) dug in and provided a sold out O2 arena in London with a sensational, unforgettable battle, which ended spectacularly when Chisora scored a surprise eighth round KO. The fight was boxed at close quarters for the most part with Takam pressing the majority of the action.. Chisora took the initiative to bring the fight into the centre of the ring in round 8, where he rolled the dice, dropping Takam twice with huge right hands.. Time was 1:01.
It has to be noted that Dereck hasn’t beaten a world ranked fighter in almost 10 years and very few fighters have been able to put the very capable Takam away in this manner.. This has to rank as one of Chisora’s career highlights and could very easily propel him back into a huge significant fight..
