Chisora looks fucked. One decent punch and he’ll go down.

Chisora probably needs a KO now.

Chisora was ahead on two of the judges scorecards if i heard that right. Even after two points deducted, not sure I agree with them judges.

Really feels like that was Whyte's game plan, keep dropping in shots throughout rounds and let Chisora tire himself out and wait for Chisora to open himself up. Really well played by him if so.

Was just about to write that Whyte needs to get better fighters out of there before it goes to points to be top level  ;D

What a bang that was. Fair play Chisora though, bit of a journeyman but tough as old boots

Good finish from Whyte. Problem is, haye got rid of chisora brutally in five, AJ is levels above haye and has already beaten Whyte.

Good news is that it will be easier to get tickets for AJ v Whyte

True but that kind of logic rarely works in boxing. One of my favourite examples I like to use is Cotto beat Mosley, then Cotto got beaten by Margarito. But then Mosley beat the crap out of Margarito.

Whyte has improved a lot as a boxer and will give AJ problems with him movement. Outcome will be same as last time though I reckon, should be a tasty affair. Might try and get tickets when they go on sale.

Brutal knockout from Dillian Whyte last night. I’m glad Chisora is ok and no doubt he’ll be back.

Not seen the Frampton/Warrington fight but was surprised the Jackal lost.

I did think after the fight last night that their are a few parallels between Joshua/Whyte and Khan/Brook. Same promoter, fight easily made, similar likely outcome with both fights on the table to them.

Joshua will easily beat Whyte again.  That fight is pointless, apart from making them lots of money of course.

Whyte has done enough to deserve another shot, even if there's no reason to expect a different result. I'd rather he'd tried to force the issue with Wilder through the WBC but that's not going to happen so here we are.

Joshua vs anyone other than Wilder or Fury is going to be a bit of a let down for now so Whyte is no worse than the other options.

Whyte v Joshua is a little pointless. Don't think it sells out Wembley at all.

Joshua might as well go to New York to fight Baby if the Wilder fight doesn't happen next then await the winner of Wilder v Fury.

Think I read somewhere that Hearn was considering Brook v Khan for the April date at Wembley if he couldn't get Wilder, then Joshua would do just that.

Not sure that would sell out either to be honest.

That will be Khan that. Khan hinted that the fight can't be in Manchester or Sheffield and has to be in a stadium.

It wouldn't shock me if that gets the April Wembley date if Wilder doesn't take the Joshua fight.

Not sure it is pointless. Whyte has come on a lot since their last fight when he was essentially a part time fighter.

Whyte is also going to be mandatory soon and has beaten 3 decent fighters. 2 of which were PPV in their own right. Throw in a rivalry between the 2 and that easily sells Wembley.

Not for me it doesn't.

Joshua was being very clever with his comments. He knows he's in a wave but knows to keep it up he needs the Wilder or Fury fight.

Whyte has improved and is dangerous now but I can see Brook V Khan at Wembley with Joshua waiting for Wilder or Fury.
