Watch: Ruthless Left Hook Knocks Dereck Chisora Out Cold In Thrilling Heavyweight Bout

A sweet left hook in the eleventh round left Dereck Chisora flat on the canvas as Dillian Whyte powered to a victory at London's O2 Arena.

There was a touching moment before the official result was read out as a clearly distressed Chisora recovered in the corner. Michael Buffer paused and asked the arena to pay tribute to the 34-year-old and the roar mustered a reaction from Chisora who rose from his stool to wave to his fans.

Chisora started brightly during a frantic start but fatigue was obvious as the bout wore on. As both fighters continued to eat leather there was decisive controversy in the eighth after a loose body shot dropped below Whyte's belt and the referee docked a point.

He lost another point two rounds later for a wild elbow before the crucial blow came. Speaking after the bout, Whyte called it his "money shot." That it was as the Englishman was behind at the time on the cards yet now looks set for a lucrative bout in early 2019.

Watching ringside was Anthony Joshua, who promised Whyte that if a fight with Deontay Wilder was not forthcoming he would be next up.

“If anyone deserves a title shot it’s Dillian. Deontay Wilder is the target but if not it’s Dillian Whyte.”

A date in Wembley Stadium next April looks likely.
