The Hayemaker sent Chisora to the canvas twice near the end of the fifth-round with a series of devastating blows, leading to the referee stopping the fight even though Chisora looked like he was just about to survive the second count which came as the bell sounded to end the round.

After all the controversial build-up, the fight delivered on its promise to be an explosive contest, but Haye’s greater hand speed was evident from the off and he won every round before finishing it in the fifth.

That’s not to say Chisora was as passenger either, he too landed some big shots, in a meaty contest that excited the big crowd in attendance who were noisy from the off despite torrential rainfall thundering into the outdoor venue just before the start of the fight.
