Oleksandr Usyk’s technical sport was too good for a game Dereck Chisora as he won his 2d professional bout at heavyweight via unanimous decision at the SSE Arena, Wembley.

Usyk (18-0, 13 KOs), who unified the cruiserweight division earlier than stepping up to heavy, beat Chazz Witherspoon last year in what turned out to be a non-event but had a a great deal better introduction to the maximum weight class versus the tenured Chisora (32-10, 23 KOs), who made life uncomfortable for the Ukrainian early on with an all-out attacking approach.

It wasn’t lengthy before Usyk’s guile and counterpunching took over, and Chisora had to tone down his approach in order to last the full 12, even adopting a switch-hitting strategy to locate the occasional way back in.

All three judges preferred Usyk’s approach and superior lands, scoring it 117-112, 115-113 and 115-113 in want of the undefeated fighter.
