Chisora Promises A Great Fight

Klitschko and Chisora face to face
Klitschko and Chisora face to face

By Clive Bernath: One thing you can never accuse Dereck Chisora of lacking is the appetite for a fight. Come to think the former British heavyweight champion is not short on confidence either. That just as well because in just five days time Chisora faces by far the toughest fight of his career when he challenges Vitali Klitschko for the WBC heavyweight title.


Despite having to face the giant Ukrainian in his adopted country of Germany and the fact that Klitschko has actually knocked out more than twice the number of opponents than Chisora has had fights, the 28 year-old Londoner remains supremely confident.


At Monday’s press conference Chisora continued to remain upbeat about defeating one of the biggest punchers in heavyweight boxing history


"Everyone is saying that it will be the toughest test of my career but that’s just because he has been on the throne for such a long time," insisted Chisora, 15-2-(9).


"Maybe this will be the toughest test of his career. It’s going to be amazing whatever happens. It will be a great fight, the public will love it.


"Vitali has been around a long time. He is the king of the sport but it’s about time that somebody came in who is young and fresh, who is not scared of anyone and who is going to whoop his ass.



"A lot of people have tried to do it but they don’t have the swagger and the passion to go in there and do the business but I have got it.


"I’m not scared of them. I’m passionate about the sport and I’m not scared of them. That’s why I am going to be successful."


In an era when trash talking has replaced legitimate boxing ability (or lack of it) as a way of securing a shot at the heavyweight title Vitlali Klitschko of course had heard it all before.


The build up to this latest heavyweight showdown has been no different to any other and Vitali, 43-2-(40), is looking forward to teaching Chisora some much needed manners.


“I’m really looking forward to teaching this young gentleman a lesson. He is from Great Britain but he’s lacking appropriate manners.


The young British title contender may well have a far too much to say fro himself and lack the appropriate respect that befits a long time heavyweight champ but unlike another British trash talking heavyweight, Dereck will come fight. He may end up sinking to the canvas but he will go out on his shield, that you can be sure of.
