Dereck Chisora beats Edmund Gerber to win European title

London, Sept 22 (ANI): Britain's Dereck Chisora has won the European heavyweight title with a fifth-round stoppage win over Germany's Edmund Gerber at London's Copper Box.

According to the BBC, the 29-year-old, who harbours hopes of another world title shot, drew blood from Gerber in the third round.

A series of combination shots cornered Gerber in the fifth, prompting the referee to end the contest, the report said.

Chisora, nicknamed 'Del Boy', lost to David Haye last year, but responded with stoppages of Argentina's Hector Alfredo Avila and American Malik Scott to re-shape his career, the report added. (ANI)
