Chisora returns for 29 seconds

Dereck Chisora returned to the ring for less than half a minute on Friday night.

The 31-year-old heavyweight knocked out Beqa Lobjanidze in 29 seconds in a comeback fight at the Wembley Arena in London.

In his first fight since retiring in the tenth round of his rematch with Tyson Fury in November last year, Chisora cashed in on an opportunity to fight a Georgian who had lost four of his past seven fights.

Weighing around 115 kg, “Del Boy” improved his record to 21-5, including 14 shortcut wins. Lobjanidze’s fell to 13-4; 11.

Chisora went twelve rounds with Vitali Klitschko in 2012 during a spell in which he lost four times in five fights, including defeats against David Haye, Robert Helenius and Fury.

His handlers are now likely to arrange a fight against one of the better British or European heavyweights before the end of the year.

On the undercard, Billy Joe Saunders won his middleweight bout against Yoann Bloyer in the fourth round to remain undefeated after 22 professional bouts. The 25-year-old is scheduled to challenge WBO champion Andy Lee in Ireland in September.

Bloyer, from France, suffered his 28 defeat in 47 fights. He has won three inside the distance.

Jamie Cox and Frank Buglioni won their super-middleweight bouts on the undercard. Cox improved to 19-0 by stopping Blas Martinez in the second round and Buglioni now stands at 17-1-1; 13 after a fifth-round knockout win against Fernando Castaneda.

Promising Mitchell Smith, a 22-year-old Londoner, remained undefeated after 13 fights when he knocked out Dennis Tubieron (19-5-2) from the Philippines in the first round of a fight at super-featherweight. It was Smith’s seventh win inside the distance.

IN WHEELING, West Virginia, 2m tall Daniel Martz stopped Rubin Williams in the first round of a cruiserweight bout to move to 14-2-1; 11. Williams dropped to 29-27, with one draw.
