“I was a little rusty,” said Chaney, who last fought in December of 2020. I was happy I went 10 rounds. Now that I’ve done it, I know I can do it.”

 

There were no knockdowns. Chaney aimed most of his punches at the head, using a stiff jab and a straight right hand to do most of his work. He sustained a small cut over his left eye.

 

“He was dipping to his right,” Chaney said. “That’s something I haven’t seen in a long time. I needed to be more relaxed.”

 

Winters, whom Joseph Parker stopped in five rounds in February of 200, had some success landing to Chaney’s body and did some of his better work in the final two rounds.

 

“I came to win,” Winters said. “I didn’t come to get a paycheck or go rounds. I would have liked to have had a little more time to prepare.”
