Vitali Klitschko vs Derek Chisora Press Conference in London
January 9th, 2012
In Chisora’s last fight, he clearly won his European Heavyweight title challenge against Robert Helenius in Finland, but was controversially “robbed” of the title by a dodgey points decision to the hometown fighter.
Chisora was scheduled to fight Vitali’s brother Wladimir, the IBF/WBO/WBA Super champion, twice last year, but Wladimir pulled out with injuries.
“The Klitschko Brothers have ruled for too long and it’s now time to start smashing down the iron curtain of heavyweight boxing, starting with Vitali, and I’m happy that people will see me do this live on Boxnation,” said Chisora.
Klitschko, 40, has a record of 43 wins and 40 KO’s with only two defeats, and he’s only the fourth heavyweight boxer in history along with Muhammad Ali, Evander Holyfield and Lennox Lewis to win a heavyweight championship belt 3 times.
This fight does not have the same appeal as last years super heavyweight clash between Wladimir Klitschko and David Haye but should still be an interesting spectical for a fading division in boxing.
