A few days ago Dereck Chisora (15-4, 9 KOs) revealed that he plans to return to the action in February and one of potential rivals on his radar is former WBC heavyweight title challenger Manuel Charr (22-1, 12 KOs). The Lebanon-born fighter jeered Chisora’s plans and stated that he is much more interested in facing his countryman David Haye (26-2, 24 KOs), because such fight can help him to get a rematch with Vitali Klitschko (42-2, 41 KOs) whom he lost by technical knockout in September.
“I read that Dereck Chisora has challenged me. Who is he? Only fight with David Haye can help me to get a rematch with Klitschko. Hereby I proclaim: David, I challenge you and I’m ready to face you anywhere and anytime. The winner of our fight will face Vitali Klitschko providing that he will dare come into the ring again. Let’s make this fight, David!”.
Charr returned for the first time since his loss to Klitschko last week, knocking a German fighter Konstantin Airich (24-9-2, 18 KOs) out in the first round.
It also seems likely the Charr will return to the ring on January 19th in Tabasco, Mexico. Haye, who is also keen to face the elder Klitschko brother, has been out of boxing since July, when he stopped Chisora within few rounds in London.
