Anyway, that is that from the Excel.

Billy Joe Saunders and Chris Eubank Jnr more than lived up to their billing as they thrilled the crowd earlier.

Unfortunately, Tyson Fury's contest with Dereck Chisora proved to be a mismatch of epic proportions as Fury sauntered to victory.

And with that I bid you good night. Cheerio.

Tyson Fury v Dereck Chisora

Tyson Fury's promoter, Mick Hennessey, speaking in the ring: "Tyson's mandatory now for the heavyweight world title. Wladimir Klitschko's being allowed one more fight in March or April, then it'll be purse bids, then the fight's on. It'll be June to September. The big fight is on, and Klitschko has to just take it and not swerve it."

Tyson Fury v Dereck Chisora

Tyson Fury's uncle and coach, Peter, speaking in the ring: "I'm very proud of him. He stuck to instruction. This was a very important fight to get the win. He's using his brain now when he's boxing. He had so many more tools than Dereck and he used them."

Tyson Fury v Dereck Chisora

Tyson Fury speaking in the ring: "Which other heavyweight in the world can box southpaw against a world-class fighter like Dereck, a fighter who will give any other heavyweight a tough fight? I'm very proud of my performance. And these belts are coming home to Manchester.

"Klitschko, I'm coming. No surrender. I'm the Gypsy Warrior!"

If Nathan Cleverly v Tony Bellew was an anti-climax last weekend, what was this? There was zero entertainment for those 18,000 who waited so patiently at the Excel. There were about 6,000 left by the end.

Harsh to criticise Tyson Fury though. He was there to win the fight and that was done to devastating effect.

He would probably have been imagining celebrating victory in front of a packed house. Instead, one man and his dog are left to watch what became a damp squib.

Tommy D: Worst boxing match I've ever seen...

Cam Melling: Anything but a classic, but a strangely professional job from Tyson Fury. On to bigger things now.

So is it Wladimir Klitschko next for Tyson Fury for the heavyweight world title? I'm not sure the Ukrainian would fancy that too much...

Round 10

Tyson Fury v Dereck Chisora

Chisora's corner: "Champ. I want you to finish on your feet. Come out of here..."

Tyson Fury wins

Dereck Chisora v Tyson Fury

Dereck Chisora's corner win the argument and the fight is stopped as they pull their man out. Fury was imperious.

An argument in Chisora's corner about whether the fight goes on..

Round 10

Dereck Chisora v Tyson Fury

Almost a half-pleading look from Chisora towards the official as Fury lands with continuous jabs. He gets through the round somehow.

Round 10

Dereck Chisora v Tyson Fury

So, so, simple for Fury. The fight is over as a contest. The referee is looking closely as Chisora fails to throw anything..

Sam Heaton: I think Anthony Joshua would beat both of them easily.

Karl: Fury has dominated from the first bell, Chisora just hasn't turned up. Routine training session for Tyson.

Daniel James Rudden: Get Mickey Rourke in there! He would make this a much more interesting fight than this imminent Fury win.

Round 10

Dereck Chisora v Tyson Fury

There is only about one third of the crowd left as Chisora continues to labour into the tenth round...

Round nine

Tyson Fury v Dereck Chisora

Chisora's corner: "I want you to stay tight, I want you to push him around. Come on, man. It's now or never. No regrets tomorrow morning. No crying tomorrow."

Round nine

Dereck Chisora v Tyson Fury

Credit to Chisora. He attempts a couple of big right handers but they are wild and nowhere near Fury. Blood from the nose, the mouth and his eyes are almost closed. Time to pull him out?

Round nine

Dereck Chisora v Tyson Fury

Tyson Fury predicted he was going to win every round and it looks like he was right. Chisora is now bleeding from the mouth as five jabs in a row knock him back. Fury looks happy to win this points rather than going for the knockout. Chisora's face is swollen, his eyes puffed and a stoppage might not be far away.

Round eight

Tyson Fury v Dereck Chisora

Fury's corner: "You're relaxed, just catching him. Deep breaths. Listen, you're catching him straight down the pipe. Just keep turning him like you're doing. You'll soon see his legs buckle and he won't last long."

Chisora's corner: "Where's's that zip, man? I need to see some zip. Look sharp. Come on, man."

Round eight

Dereck Chisora v Tyson Fury

There is no real response though as Fury continues to pepper Chisora with his jab. Switching from orthodox to Southpaw, it is so, so easy for Fury. More jeers as the bell goes.

Round eight

Dereck Chisora v Tyson Fury

A left hook moves Chisora back again. Delboy is yet to be really hurt by Fury's shots but that won't stop him from being a mile behind on the judges scorecards. Fury looks to be in sparring mode. The referee pulls them together and is asking for more action.

Andy Kay: Anthony Joshua will destroy either of these two.

Ian Lindsay: I think Lennox Lewis at the age of 50 would still beat both of these guys...

Tyson Fury v Dereck Chisora

Chris McKenna for the Daily Star: Not great so far. Fury doing the better work off the jab. Ring card girls were having a snooze a minute ago

Ron Lewis of the Times: Fury incredibly effective as a southpaw.

James Robson from the Manchester Evening News: If Fury carries on like this, he can make the fight as easy as he wants. All depends on if he wants some excitement.

Round seven

Tyson Fury v Dereck Chisora

A few are leaving their seats and heading for the exits. They have seen enough. Chisora is looking a damaged man, physically and mentally. Fury jabs with his left and right and Chisora looks a beaten man. More jeers from the stands but they can't be aimed at Fury. A left hook lands flush on Chisora's chin. Out boxed and out fought, surely there is no way back for Chisora? Will the Mancunian go for the stoppage?

Round six

Tyson Fury v Dereck Chisora

Chisora's corner: "Do you want to be in this? Well, get a move on. He's just slapping you. You've fought people with better jabs than his. Switch on! That was round six, just gone. Use your feet, baby. Sip your drink..."

Round six

Dereck Chisora v Tyson Fury

Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora

Chisora has no answer to Fury's Southpaw stance. It wasn't expected and has completely baffled him. More jeers as Fury jabs his way through the round. Fury is boxing well but Chisora's efforts so far are pretty poor.

Andy Peck: Come back David Haye! I'm having to watch these two dreadful boxers...

Gordon MacPherson: I can't wait until Anthony Joshua pastes either of these bums!

Round six

Dereck Chisora v Tyson Fury

Chisora thinks he has problems with his left eye. A sign he is far from happy? His corner tell him he is fine but this is one sided well into the sixth.

Round five

Tyson Fury v Dereck Chisora

Chisora's corner: "Give him some water. Spit. Listen, Fury is nicking the rounds. I don't want to have to rely on stopping this guy to win. He's peppering you with jabs and it's looking good. Get your rhythm, don't be flat in front of this guy. Where's your beautiful footwork? Throw single jab, then double jabs, and good things will come of it."

Round five

Dereck Chisora v Tyson Fury

Does Chisora have any answer? Not at the moment. He looks so sluggish as Fury's height and strength see him dominate. A sell-out Excel is not impressed either as jeers greet the bell. They haven't waited this long for this...

Round five

Dereck Chisora v Tyson Fury

Dereck Chisora and Tyson Fury

Fury is loving this. His left uppercut is looking a dangerous weapon as Chisora is again hit. Chisora is just walking on to hits at the moment and Fury looks so composed. One minute 30 to go in the fifth round.

Round four

Tyson Fury v Dereck Chisora

Fury's corner: "He's hurt now."

Chisora's corner: "You keep falling on top of him..."

Lennox Lewis on Twitter: Chisora needs to bang the body in close! Soften the body up and then go to the head!

Round four

Dereck Chisora v Tyson Fury

Fury continues to lead with his right and lands well with his right. A left hook thrown and on target by Tyson. Chisora throws a wild right as he moves closer but yet to land. A couple of jabs before a left uppercut catches the advancing Chisora. Nice left turns Chisora onto the ropes as the latter gets out boxed. Chisora has no answer as he gets caught again on his way forward. A slight blemish to Chisora's face is showing now.

Round three

Tyson Fury v Dereck Chisora

Fury's corner: "Get a little bit lighter on your feet. Lighten up with your shots - you keep trying to land a bomb. He's got nothing about him. There are no jabs, nothing. Play with him like a cat playing with a ball, and he'll just walk into trouble. Confuse him, yeah? Understand?"

Chiangmai Si: Just on 7.40am in Bangkok reading the live updates on BBC sport. I'm hoping Del Boy can stop Fury.

Round three

Dereck Chisora v Tyson Fury

Jab, jab by Fury as he keeps Chisora at arms length. Finally the smaller man lands with a right though, his best shot of the evening. Back to the jabs for Fury followed by a body shot. Delboy can't get close. No one expected Fury to take this southpaw stance, certainly not Chisora, and it is proving a tactical master class so far.

Round two

Tyson Fury v Dereck Chisora

Chisora's corner: "How are you feeling? Spit. Talk to me. What's wrong with you? Listen, you're handing it to him on a plate. Are you hearing me? Use your feet and box naturally. Get working and give him angles. Don't just walk in straight, and work away with your jab. Be in the centre of the ring and don't back off from this guy. You understand?"

Round two

Dereck Chisora v Tyson Fury

Fury looks to keep Chisora away with his jab and, with his 11 inch reach advantage, Chisora struggles to get close. The big man raises both hands in some early showboating. A right uppercut landed by Fury as well as he controls the early stages. A big right landed by Fury followed by a shuddering uppercut. Chisora has to get closer as he gets caught again. Fury in control as he surprisingly leads with his right at times. Chisora is looking leaden-footed.

Round one

Dereck Chisora v Tyson Fury

Chisora's corner: "You've got good boxing and you've got good feet. Use it, OK? You can box, and you know you can box. Good boy."
