Chisora is currently appealing the ruling by the BBBofC. However, even under the best of circumstances with Chisora immediately getting his boxing license back, he’s facing a long way back to get another title shot.

Chisora has lost three out of his last four fights and is no longer ranked in the top 15 by any of the sanctioning bodies. It doesn’t look as if Chisora will ever get ranked again by the WBC, as may have burned his bridges with his actions before and after the Vitali fight where Chisora slapped Vitali at the weigh-in, spit water in Wladimir Klitschko’s face and then was involved with a post-fight brawl with David Haye.

Chisora can possibly get ranked by one of the other sanctioning bodies if he can beat a top contender or a couple of high level 2nd tier fighters. However, we’re still talking about a good piece of time before Chisora is ranked at the bottom of one of the sanctioning bodies.

Vitali likely won’t fight Chisora ever again because he doesn’t have much time left, and he’ll want to maximize the time he already has fighting against guys that winning at least. Chisora is losing pretty much every time out nowadays. Wladimir has already said he has no interest in fighting Chisora. That leaves only the WBA paper champion Alexander Povetkin. That’s a bad match-up for Chisora because Povetkin throws a lot of punches and Chisora doesn’t. That fight would be next to impossible to make if the Chisora isn’t permitted to fight in Germany. That’s the only guy Chisora has any chance of fighting and he’d lose to him anyway. It would have to take place in Russia. Good luck winning a decision over, Chisora. I think Chisora is looking at a long period of time before he gets another title shot.
