The last thing Chisora needs to worry about is having to fight both Klitschko brothers

By Scott Gilfoid: I’ve noticed more than a few fans of Dereck Chisora (14-0, 9 KO’s) have been belly aching about Chisora having to fight an immediate rematch with IBF/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko should he beat him on December 11th. Apparently, it’s also part of the contract that Chisora would have to fight Wladimir’s older brother WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko after that before Chisora could face someone else outside of the Klitschkos. I don’t see what the worry is, really. Chisora has basically no chance of winning against Wladimir, and thus it’s pointless to even cry about how he “might” have to fight a rematch with Wladimir and might have to face Vitali after that. It just makes me wonder whether these fans of Chisora have actually seen him fight.


Perhaps they have, but they’re so enamored with his skills that they’re looking past the obvious reality that Chisora is way over his head in this fight against Wladimir. We’re talking incredibly out of his depth here. When I see Chisora fight, I see a fighter that would get wiped out by previous Klitschko victims like Lamon Brewster, Eddie Chambers, Monte Barrett, and Tony Thompson. And I see even Shannon Briggs doing a number on Chisora while fighting with only one arm. Forget about it if Briggs had both arms working for him.

I think he would wipe Chisora out in one round in that case, but with only arm I can see Chisora lasting three or four rounds before Briggs gets to him and finishes him off. Chisora is just too short, too small and too slow to ever beat Wladimir. This isn’t even a slightly competitive fight. Chisora is going to rush Wladimir and run right into a left hook or fight hand and immediately keel over and be counted out. So what’s the worry about his rematch clause when it will never be used. That kind of fantasy stuff is hilarious. Chisora never even proved he’s the best fighter in the UK, much less in the world. I can see Audley Harrison and David Haye both making easy work of Chisora.
