Chisora vs Pulev 2 LIVE!

Derek Chisora and Kubrat Pulev went to war for a second time on Saturday night and, unlike six years ago in Munich, the Londoner was awarded a split decision victory. With the 38-year-old desperately needing a victory inside the 02 Arena, Chisora went to work on the Bulgarian’s body in the early rounds, all while withstanding huge shots himself.

After 12 rounds, Chisora won 116-112, 116-112, 116-114 to claim a morale-boosting win, though one he admitted could be his last in the sport.

“I think I last won a fight three years ago. It’s been... listen...,” he told DAZN.

“It was hard. Pulev’s a great fighter. I’m happy today. At the same time, I’m sad.

“I don’t have many left in me, but what I have, I’m gonna give it all to you guys.

“I don’t have many left. I don’t want easy fights. I told Eddie [Hearn] the other day, if you can get me the ‘Bronze Bomber’ [Deontay Wilder], I’ll be happy.”

This is what the crowed have been calling for.

Elvis Presley rings out across the 02, for some reason.

The ring walks begin

This is what we’ve been building for all night!

21:30 , Jonathan Gorrie

It’s over!!!

The cut is considered too bad to continue with.

A techincal draw!

Israil Madrimov vs Michel Soro

21:29 , Jonathan Gorrie

Round 3: Really, really, bad cut on Soro’s forehead.

Could be heading for a technical draw, given we’ve not yet had 4 rounds.

Israil Madrimov vs Michel Soro

21:25 , Jonathan Gorrie

Round 2: Soro hit by a big right hand!

Madrimov started with a left hook, slips inside Soro’s jab and lets his hands go.

Ramla Ali vs Augstina Marisa Rojas

Ramla Ali vs Augstina Marisa Rojas

20:45 , Jonathan Gorrie

Round 3: Very useful experience for Ali, who is being urged to double up on her attacks by her corner.

She’s not looked in danger, but there’s little doubt Rojas has stepped things up of late.

Ramla Ali vs Augstina Marisa Rojas

20:41 , Jonathan Gorrie

Round 2: Rojas enjoying some success with her uppercuts in this round, though Ali’s defence has largely been pretty solid.

Caoimhin Agyarko vs Lukasz Maciec

20:17 , Jonathan Gorrie

Round 10: Agyarko will benefit from those ten rounds, as much of a shame as it is he couldn’t get the stoppage.

Not entirely perfect but the Irishman never looked in danger of not winning the contest.

20:14 , Jonathan Gorrie

We’re really going to find out what Agyarko is made of!

Caoimhin Agyarko vs Lukasz Maciec

20:02 , Jonathan Gorrie

Round 7: Agyarko laughed towards the end of round 6 when Maciec hit him with a poweful right hand.

Another slip-up like that, however, and he may not be in such a good mood!

Caoimhin Agyarko vs Lukasz Maciec

19:56 , Jonathan Gorrie

Round 5: Few warning from Maciec in this round, with Agyarko having to wiggle away from the ropes.

The Irishman has let his guard down somewhat in this round.

Turning into a bit of a slugest!

19:44 , Jonathan Gorrie

Round 2: Maciec letting his hands go now, proving very difficult for Agyarko to pin down.

Caoimhin Agyarko vs Lukasz Maciec

19:40 , Jonathan Gorrie

Brutal stuff

“That’s the old Fabio Wardley,” he says when asked about his tendency to start slow.

On this evidence, you’d have to agree.

13th straight stoppage

19:22 , Jonathan Gorrie

An ever-improving track record...

Fabio Wardley vs Chris Healey

19:19 , Jonathan Gorrie

Fabio Wardley vs Chris Healey

19:17 , Jonathan Gorrie

Round 1: Healey recovered fairly well there, particularly after hitting the ground halfway into the round.

Difficult to see him lasting, however.

Fabio Wardley vs Chris Healey

19:16 , Jonathan Gorrie

Round 1: Light work for Wardley.

Healey backed onto the ropes with Wardley hitting a punch-perfect right hand over the top. Healey in all kinds of problems.

Fabio Wardley vs Chris Healey

19:15 , Jonathan Gorrie

Round 1: Wardley has only ever gone the distance once, so he could really do with convincing over a prologned period.

Some quick hands early on, with the 27-year-old learning from his recent fights, where has tended to start fairly slowly.

Fabio Wardley vs Chris Healey

19:12 , Jonathan Gorrie

The hope tonight is that Healey, 34, can give Wardley some useful rounds as he continues to make a name for himself.

Here we go, eight rounds ahead!

Here we go!

Prediction: Pulev to win on points

18:25 , Jonathan Gorrie

How much either of these veterans has left in the tank is highly questionable, while many are puzzled at what exactly either has to gain from squaring off again all these years later.

Eddie Hearn has admitted the fight “came out of nowhere” as they were plotting other next contests for ‘Del Boy’, who seems as committed as ever to avoiding retirement for as long as possible.

Chisora can certainly never be accused of lacking heart and his ever aggressive style, which often results in him taking twice as many big shots as he throws, still makes for great entertainment.

But he’s coming off the back of three straight losses and hasn’t managed a stoppage since beating David Price in 2019.

Pulev is well past his best, but the only defeats on his professional record came in world title challenges against Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko, with the former needing nine rounds to eventually break his stubborn resistance.

Despite his advancing years, the Bulgarian remains a highly durable and tough man to stop. We’re backing Pulev to battle to another points victory in a fight that will likely have its fair share of bizarre moments.
