Chisora returns to winning ways with controversial stoppage
Dereck Chisora pushed himself back into the world title frame with a controversial six-round stoppage of previously unbeaten Malik Scott at Wembley Arena.
Scott, 32, was incredulous after being counted out despite seemingly recovering his senses and returning to his feet after an overhand right from Chisora had left him on the canvas at the end of the sixth stanza.
Zimbabwe-born Chisora came into the fight having lost four of his last six fights since losing his 2011 battle with Tyson Fury and knew his career was on the line against the unvanquished Malik.
Before the contentious denoument, Malik had had slightly the better of the opening stages, despite finding Chisora in the best shape of his young career.
The 29-year-old. who now holds the WBO International belt, will fight again in September before looking towards a rematch with either Vitali Klitschko or a return against the winner of the upcoming battle between Tyson Fury and David Haye- two of the other men to have secured victories over him in the ring-
