With the fight evenly poised in a much anticipated rematch between two of Britain’s most famous heavyweight sluggers, ‘Body snatcher’ Whyte landed a thunderous left hook flush on the button, that sent Chisora sprawling in the 11th round to close the show.
That led to a tense few moments as Chisora lay flat out on the canvas and surrounded by medical staff and team members as he fought to regain consciousness after a sickeningly heavy knockdown.
Thankfully, Chisora did eventually come round and was able to make it to his feet. Whyte had decisioned his London rival months ago 2 years ago, and bad blood had surrounded the build up to the rematch.
Ironically, Chisora had been leading on two of the three judges scorecards by scores of 95-94, 95-94 with the other judge having the same score for Whyte.
After the highlight reel knockout, Whyte turned his attention to WBO, WBA, IBO and IBF heavyweight champion Joshua, who was seated ringside and providing commentary for Sky Sports and directed a callout at the 6 foot 6 inch champ.
“I want that lanky piece of sh*t next,” Jamaican-born Brixton fighter Whyte bellowed, gesturing at Joshua.

That fight looks the most likely to be made for Joshua’s next outing on April 13 at Wembley, despite the champions himself showing interest in fighting WBC champ Deontay Wilder, who drew with former champ Tyson Fury earlier this month.
