Chisora Cracks on Vitali For Steroid Use During TV Face-Off

By Chris LaBate

Things got pretty tense during a televised face-off between WBC heavyweight champion Vitalk Klitschko (43-2, 40 KOs) and his British challenger Dereck Chisora (15-2, 9 KOs). During the face-off, hosted by John Rawling and televised on BoxNation, the temper of Chisora flared up when Klitschko made a crack about his weight. Chisora has struggled with his weight in several fights. He was very overweight for his first career loss against Tyson Fury last July.

In response, Chisora alleged that Vitali was using steroids - a rumor that has circlulated about the Klitschko brothers for years, but nothing has ever been proven and nobody is exactly sure where the rumor started. During the second round of negotiations for Wladimir Klitschko vs. Alexander Povetkin, there was a major issue when Povetkin's camp demanded Olympic style drug testing to be involved. Initially, Vitali's younger brother refused to accept Povetkin's demand for the testing procedure, but he eventually agreed.

"At the press conference, you told me that you are already making the preparations. Are you already in shape? You have to burn 25-pounds of fat," Vitali said.

Chisora replied - "It don't matter. You don't worry about this fat man. I don't juice myself like you do, baby. This fat will be all over you, all over your face. You don't worry about me, you worry about yourself. What I'm doing is coming to this playground and I'm going to stop this big bully from taking people's candy from the playground - and you're the big bully."

[QUOTE=Ubermensch;11682362]:dunno: Tennis players tend to burn out a lot quicker than boxers, because of the schedule, the constant travel, the grinding wear and tear on wrists, ankles, knees. However, age 30 is not the death sentence it used to be…

[QUOTE=JAB5239;11682174]Let me ask you something. How many tennis players at 40 are on top of their sport? The fact is it is highly unlikely because their bodies break down and cannot react the same. Same as boxers except they're not…

[QUOTE=Ubermensch;11682084]:dunno: Tennis is more analogous to boxing than most other sports, actually. Except that tennis players aren't hitting each other in the head. But it is one man or woman against another, probing for weaknesses, trying to wear the opponent…

[QUOTE=JAB5239;11682031]It is plausible, but its highly unlikely under the circumstances. Athletes don't just miraculously heal at an advanced age. In fact its the opposite which is true. This leads to LOGICAL speculation. Lol at tennis being a one on one…
