The referee was forced to step in after the Briton had forced his Czech opponent to turn his back with a succession of fierce blows.
The victory, Chisora's fourth stoppage of the year which took his record to 19 wins from 23 fights, ensured he defended his WBO International title and took the WBA belt.
Pala, 29, was not expected to cause his 29-year-old opponent many problems, but rocked Chisora with a heavy left hand in the second round.
The Briton took a moment to recover, but responded well in the third to land some heavy shots to head and body which took their toll on Pala, who could not respond.
