When has Chisora ever boxed someone's head off? Bar ***ton II, actual boxing skills have been one of the things he has neglected. He didn't jab his away in against either Helenius or Vitali and was able to march inside so often because both of his opponents neglected their jab too as well as each carrying injuries. His plodding, limited punch range and lack of power have all been shown up when he's stepped up in class. So Chisora 'boxing his head off and stopping him' is without doubt the least likely scenario in this fight.

Let's not make Chisora out to be something he's not. He beat an average Helenius but lost comfortably lost to Haye, Fury and Vitali. He's better than the likes of Skelton & Harrison so at the upper end of domestic class but nothing more than that.
