Boxing fans pleaded with the referee to stop the match saying Tyson Fury would kill Dereck Chisora would the fight continue
Fury was the favourite coming into the fight and a win for the 34-year-old was always predicted.
Many fans on social media wondered how the fight was not stopped earlier – with some concerned for Chisora’s health.
One fan said that Chisora’s corner should have thrown the towel in earlier to protect their boxer – even after just three rounds.
The Daily Mail quotes one commentator as saying:
Chisora’s corner needs to stop this fight. Only three rounds in, and Fury’s already trying not to hurt him.
Chisora’s eye had swollen up and looked badly hurt before the referee called it off in round 10
Some fans were even more concerned – thinking that Fury could have killed the Zimbabwean born fighter if the fight lasted any longer.
A fan pleaded with the referee to ‘stop the fight before Fury kills Chisora,’ with another referring to Del Boy as a ‘walking body bag’.
The fight, which was eventually stopped after 10 rounds, was always predicted to be a mismatch with both fighters at different stages of their respective careers.
Many boxing fans said Fury should not have taken the fight in the build-up with one viewer watching the Gypsy King’s victory over Chisora saying: ‘This is embarrassing from Fury to fight Chisora.’
