Fury dominated from start to finish and clearly won every round to improve to 33-0-1. Chisora fell to 33-13.

Fury's win should set up a unification heavyweight title bout with Oleksandr Usyk. Usyk, who was ringside, had a staredown with Fury post-match.

Fury was looking DOMINANT in round 3 <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/FuryChisora?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#FuryChisora</a> <a href="https://t.co/eoTqpAPE2p">pic.twitter.com/eoTqpAPE2p</a>

Twitter recognized his great work. It also noted the fight probably shouldn't have happened given the clear talent discrepancy between the opponents and that the bout could've been stopped earlier, when it was plain that Fury was more or less stringing along a defenseless Chisora.

‼️ Tyson Fury STOPS Derek Chisora in round ten to retain his WBC heavyweight world title. Fury on a completely different level as expected. An unnecessary one-sided beatdown.

Ryan Taylor @RyanTaylorSport

This is a painful watch. An utter farce for a heavyweight world championship fight. Shameful matchmaking from Frank Warren, who said earlier this year: "He [Chisora] shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near the ring, let alone in there with Tyson Fury.” <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/FuryChisora3?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#FuryChisora3</a>

Tyson Fury utterly dominating Derek Chisora. How hasn't this fight been stopped?

Teddy Atlas @TeddyAtlasReal

And you would know also that the only fights I want to see Fury in now are with Usyk or Joyce. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/FuryChisora3?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#FuryChisora3</a>

Wade Plem @WadePlem

What tf was Chisora's corner doing there...<br><br>That fight wasn't close from the bell. After round 6 there was no need to keep that fight going. I get letting your fighter go out on his terms but that's just wrekless man <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/FuryChisora3?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#FuryChisora3</a>

Teddy Atlas @TeddyAtlasReal

Chisora would have been better off if KO'd earlier rather than take all this needless punishment when he couldn’t win. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/FuryChisora3?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#FuryChisora3</a>

Nick Peet πŸ‡―πŸ‡΅ @Peety_Editor

This is not why I love boxing. This is not sport and I’m not entertained. Chisora is receiving an unnecessarily prolonged beatdown that could have dramatic consequences on his quality of life. I usually marvel at Fury and his abilities. But I just want this to end. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/FuryChisora3?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#FuryChisora3</a>

Finally. Ref stops it in the 10th. Fury retains the heavyweight title, nearly kills a man. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/boxing?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#boxing</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/FuryChisora3?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#FuryChisora3</a>

Round 7: Fury continues to pour on punishment with combinations but he isn't trying to finish Chisora yet. Possible he's trying to extend the fight to get the work in ahead of probably undisputed title fight with Usyk in the spring. 10-9, Fury. 70-63, Fury

Mike Coppinger @MikeCoppinger

Round 9: Chisora is in bad shape now but the corner won't stop it. His mouth is filled with blood and his right eye is completely swollen shut. Fury still won't step on gas but he's dealing out plenty of damage. 10-9, Fury. 90-81, Fury

The victory marked Fury's fourth straight knockout and the 24th of his career.
