    Derek Chisora went and brought Olesandr Usyk and his team their post-fight meal, passing around BURGERS.

    The Ukrainian's team look delighted, and there's no bad blood between the pair.



    Josh Taylor impressed with Chisora's performance tonight.



    Dillian Whyte, who beat Chisora twice in his career, has had his say on Usyk's win.

    “I didn't see anything special from Usyk,” he said.

    “Derek was following him around – I don't know what advice he was being given.

    “There were no boxers in there [in Chisora's corner]. It is a joke. Maybe their plan was to survive 12 rounds.

    “Usyk can be a force because he has pedigree and is a good mover, but that's about it.”



    Del Boy thought he won the fight and is absolutely distraught with the loss.



    Usyk has had his say on a potential fight with Anthony Joshua…



    Matt Macklin has gone with 116-112 Usyk.



    George Groves has given his scorecard for the night… he had Usyk winning easily.



    “Derek put in a fantastic performance. He forced the pace, got right stuck in,” he said.

    “I'm not going to say the word robbery because that's ridiculous. But it was a close fight.

    “I know Usyk is by far the better boxer and get hit twice the amount. The output outweighs boxing sometimes.

    “I think Usyk went in there with a point to prove, he showed he can take a punch, he hurt Chisora. But Chisora outworked Usyk.”



    Both sides were all respect at the end of the fight, Usyk rates his performance as 3/10. Chisora thought he won.



    “Yeah, 100 per cent I won that fight. I was pushing the pace but the judges saw it different. I'm just disappointed,” he said.

    “It's the fight game, he took shots, everyone can. I'm basically gutted. I'll make Hayemaker go for the rematch.

    “Eddie's not here, I'd be having a go at him.

    “I'm just gutted for myself, everyone stay safe, we'll go back to normal soon.

    “I gave a couple of rounds away, 100 per cent. It's boxing, there has to be one loser, one winner. I'm gutted, you don't understand.”



    “My plan is to go home, spend time with family and train,” he says after being asked about an Anthony Joshua fight.

    He's now Joshua's WBO world title mandatory challenger.

    “Absolutely, I want to be undisputed. Not just world champion. Undisputed world champion.”



    A really solid heavyweight fight that. But Usyk was too classy in the end.



    Oleksandr Usyk beats Derek Chisora in London with scores of 117-112, 115-113 in favour of the former undisputed cruiserweight champion.

    Decent fight, great effort from Chisora.



    Round 12

    Final round! Here we go!

    Chisora's tank looks completely empty but he's giving it absolutely everything here. Usyk stabbing that jab into Chisora's face with real menace.

    When they exchange in the middle of the ring, it looks like both could land flush on the chin at any time.

    Usyk, from the mid-point of this fight, has controlled it really, give or take the odd round.

    Chisora comes forward with his typical right hand to finish the round but Usyk returns with rights and lefts himself.

    Final 30 seconds, Chisora eats a left hand but once again he comes forward to give it everything he has before the bell rings. And breathe.

    How will the judges see that one? I've got it 116-112 Usyk.



    Round 11

    Chisora drops his arms at the start of the 11th but Usyk doesn't fall for the potential bait.

    Usyk then comes forward with a big one-two while Chisora continues to come forward.

    He really doesn't care too much about his gas tank at the moment. He's come further than most thought he would and won't stop throwing hands.

    Chisora backs Usyk up against the ropes in the final minute but Usyk lands a short left hand to the jaw.

    Another left and right from Usyk, who banks another round.



    Round 10

    Brutal start to the 10th round as Usyk tries to put it on Chisora, who is all too happy to oblige in those war tactics.

    Chisora has taken some big shots here tonight and is still going. He doesn't look as tired as most thought he would either.

    Chisora then comes in with a right hand and Usyk looks to be a slowing a little bit himself.

    Usyk has had to work hard tonight, particularly in this round when it looked like the fight was swinging his way.

    Nice left hook again to finish the round from Usyk.



    Round 9

    Usyk looking to up the tempo but Chisora still comes forward with as much menace as he can muster to start the round.

    Usyk looking relatively comfortable in there as Chisora lands a decent jab and some body shots. He's asking some questions of the Ukrainian.

    But Usyk is still confidently boxing his way to victory here in London.

    Chisora with some good work, however, to end the round.

    Big three rounds coming up.



    Round 8

    Usyk, with 10 more seconds, would've finished proceedings in that seventh round.

    He's pushing here in the eighth, looking for a way through. This is the round Usyk took care of Tony Bellew in two years ago.

    Some more big shots from Usyk in this round, he's going to work on Chisora now.

    Usyk again finished the round strong. He's getting really nasty with some of his punches.

    Big ninth coming up.



    Round 7

    Big effort from Chisora so far. Many thought he'd have tired by now but he's still in there, albeit without the same intensity.

    Usyk getting stronger and stronger in there, however. Chisora trying everything he can but he's being outboxed in the seventh.

    Better from Chisora to close the round, he comes forward probing with some swinging punches.

    Usyk backs Chisora up and nearly gets a knockdown!

    Chisora shaken!



    Round 6

    Chisora still hanging in there, Usyk dancing around while the Londoner tries to cut the ring off.

    It's that time of the fight where opponents like Tony Bellew started to fade against Usyk.

    Let's see if the same happens to Usyk, who lands a nice left hand on Chisora. Del Boy then tries to sneak as many punches in on his opponent while they're up close and personal in the pocket.

    Usyk maintaining distance at the moment, enjoying himself in there.
