The latest boxing news from north London
Finchley heavyweight Dereck Chisora produced a stunning knockout win against Carlos Takam on Saturday to breath new life into his career, writes Ken Sellek.
The 34-year-old was in action on a Matchroom show at The O2 in London on a bill headlined by fellow British heavyweight Dillian Whyte’s points win against Joseph Parker.
Against Frenchman Takam in what was a bruising encounter, the man known as ‘Del Boy’ delivered plenty of punishing blows, but also had to deal with those from his rival.
Chisora produced a huge right hand over the top in the eighth round that sent Takam crashing to the canvas.
