Round 10
Whyte looks the fresher fighter, timing his jabs and unleashing them with more menace now. His scoring shots will be making the difference in the judges’ eyes, but Chisora is so brave. On and on he comes, like a mighty bear, but his shots are ragged. His work to the body has not take the sting out of Whyte yet. A quickfire combination from Whyte rocks back Chisora’s head, but he will not take a step backwards. Hearn thinks Chisora’s ahead, so does Haye, but he is their man. Whyte is probably just ahead for the neutral. Six minutes left.

Round eight
Whyte continues to bide his time and then similes briefly after landing a good body shot. Is he being tactical? The referee warns Chisora agains. Next time will be a point deduction. He looks bemused, and slightly fraught. Whyte comes on strong again, and then Chisora does have a point deducted for a low blow. This is not a good round for him, but he ends it by landing a massive right. Whyte is hurt but recovers. This is building to a big finale.

Joshua says he has the fight level, but Chisora gets the crowd going again by steaming forward and swinging with his head down. They love him here, and the support will drive him on. Chisora pins Whyte in the corner and puns away at the body, then the head. Whyte escapes, Chisora stumbles then comes again. He’s on top now, and Jarrell Miller agrees. The Big Baby as he is known, is watching and says if Whyte fought like this against him it would be “goodnight”.

Round six
Chisora definitely looks fitter than we’ve ever seen him and unleashes an overhand right. Whyte rides it well though, and keeps firing off the jab. The punch count is lower now, the hugs longer and more frequent. Chisora backs Whyte on to the ropes again, unleashing one, two, three haymakers in quick succession. Whyte takes them well though, and at the halfway stage this is even. Who will tire first? Can Chisora keep this up? Will Whyte become more aggressive?

Round five
Both men looked momentarily refreshed by the break and Chisora rocks back Whyte with a might combination. He looks so determined, like he will not be denied. He resfues to take a step back despite a sharp left from Whyte. The crowd roar after another Chisora right but then Whyte’s fires out a rapid flurry of counter punches. Chisora is warned for the use of the head as he struggles for air. But he’s straight back at Whyte, working the body and ends the round with a nice left hook. This fight is very even.

Round four
The pace is relentless. There’s no way these two huge men can keep up this pace. Whyte lands a big right but Chisora shakes it off. He keeps coming, bending down los and pummelling Whyte’s body. Joshua says Chisora’s gameplan is to slow Whyte down. This is an old fashioned scrap, and Chisora lets rip with a thunderous left. Both men look tired already, at any moment one of them could get floored by a mighty blow. But they survive the round and Haye gets to work in Chisora’s corner.

Round three
Whyte comes bouncing out of his corner but Chsiora unloads a couple of big punches. He seems to be moving slightly better, but then puts a shoulder in during a hold. It’s effective though, the crowd getting louder and bellowing him to attack. Chisora forces Whyte on to the ropes with a couple of mighty body shots. He keeps coming, swinging in mighty looking punches. Some are quite low, then Whyte lands a jack-knife uppercut. The referee steps between the fighters as they trade blows after the bell.

Round two
Chisora is on the front foot but Whyte is pounding out big rights on the counter. He’s the more skilled boxer, and looks relaxed and assured. Chisora comes in close again, but cannot find his range. He ploughs forward, trying to bully Whyte but he’s not to be moved. The round ends with the two men all tangled up on the ropes. That’s the old Chisora. Grappling after the bell. The referee is not happy.
