Chisora to use the Corrie Sanders blueprint to destroy Klitschko

By Boxing News - 12/01/2010 - Comments

By Dave Lahr: Unbeaten heavyweight challenger Dereck Chisora (14-0, 9 KO’s) plans on using South African Corrie Sander’s blueprint on how to beat IBF/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (55-3, 49 KO’s) when the 26-year-old Chisora faces Wladimir on December 11th at the SAP-Arena, Mannheim, Baden-Württemberg, Germany.

Chisora is a huge underdog in the fight despite dominating his first 14 opponents and looking nothing short of sensational along the way.

In an article at the, Chisora says “You have to know how to beat him, like Corrie Sanders clearly demonstrated. He took Klitschko out and I’m going to do the same to Wladimir. I’m not going to play by Klitschko’s rules. To exchange punches with him at distance is not for me. I’m going right though his punches to chop him down. When I get to Wladimir’s jaw, he will fall.”

Sanders fought a smart fight against Wladimir seven years ago in his 2nd round knockout win in 2003. Sanders stayed on the outside briefly and then launched a couple of fast attacks in which he would land big left hand shots. When Wladimir tried to get in close to do some of his clinching, Sanders blasted him with a powerful left hand to put Wladimir down before the end of the 1st round.

Sanders finished Wladimir off with a blizzard of power shots in close in the 2nd round. This is what Chisora is going to be doing. He’s not going to waste time fighting Wladimir’s fight on the outside. Chisora knows that he has to get in close where Wladimir has no power for him to win.

Wladimir is very weak on the inside and he compensates for this weakness by constantly clinching his opponents. He’s been able to get away with the clinching because the guys that he’s been facing just let themselves be clinched without fighting out of it. Chisora is going to eat Wladimir up when he starts with the clinching. This is going to be another Sander-esque type knockout. It’s going to be great to see.
