Chanura is a demon, who was killed by Lord Krishna
. Chanura was a great wrestler of Mathura
, who was ordered by Kamsa to kill Krishna and Balarama
. They had a very tough contest, in which Chanura was whirled round a hundred times, until his breath was expended in the air. Krishna
dashed him on the ground with such violence as to smash his body into a hundred fragments. In Vishnu Purana, the reference of Chanura can be found.
