Chisora pressure against Klitschko will be incessant

Derek Chisora Vitali KlitschkoBy John F. McKenna (McJack): British boxer Dereck Chisora (15-2, 9 KO’s), who was born in Zimbabwe, is planning to use constant, incessant pressure when he fights World Boxing Council (WBC) heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (43-2, 40 KO’s).

The confident Chisora sees himself as the savior of boxing and plans to end the Klitschko’s dominance of the heavyweight division. Klitschko and Chisora will square off at the Olympiahalle in Munich, Germany on Saturday night.

The 28 year old “Del-Boy”, as he is known to his fans plans to take it to Vitali in a big way when he enters the ring against one of the most dominant heavyweight champions in boxing history. Chisora believes that the key to defeating “Dr. Ironfist” is to apply pressure from the opening bell and that he will be successful at wearing down the huge Ukrainian. Dereck has even spoken of possibly knocking out Vitali, but says that he is training for a hard fought twelve round battle.

Chisora believes that boxing fans outside of Germany and the Ukraine are eager for a new heavyweight champion to step up. “Del-Boy” believes that fans in the United States, Africa and half of Europe are behind him.

Chisora was quoted in The Herald – All Africa saying:

“Vitali and Wladimir have killed the sport I love. People are tired of Vitali and Wladimir because they are boring and it’s time for a new king. I feel as though I’ve got half of Europe behind me, America is on my side, Africa is behind me and, they might not have heard of me in China, but they will after I whip Vihtali’s ______.

“I’m the shining light. People who are not talking about boxing will start talking about boxing after February 18 because this will be an entertaining fight. I have never, ever been so relaxed before a fight and we are trying to make training as much fun as possible.”

Chisora went on to say they he will be moving forward towards Klitschko for every second of the fight. Dereck believes that his fight with Robert Helenius demonstrated that he does not have a problem with his opponent having a height advantage, noting that Helenius is approximately the same height as Vitali.

As a challenger to Vitali Klitschko you would expect Dereck Chisora to be making the kinds of comments he is making. He seems however, to believe that he has a good chance of prevailing against “Dr. Ironfist”. He will undoubtedly give it his best shot on Satruday night, unlike his fellow Brit David Haye who failed miserably last July in his attempt to upset Vitali’s younger brother Wladimir.
