In a contest that also doubled as a IBF world title eliminator. Pulev controlled the action with behind his jab and put together his combinations well to keep the Brit at bay and Chisora couldn’t get his power shots off.

It was a blow for Chisora who would have set himself up for a money spinning fight against Anthony Joshua if he would have won. It is not known what Chisora will do from here, but he is expected to keep on boxing. there are some big fights to be made for him in the UK, with the likes of David Price, Dillian Whyte, Hughie Fury, and who knows maybe a rematch with David Haye?
