Chisora Mad: I Will Mop The Canvas With Helenius' Head!

By Derek “Del Boy” Chisora

Calls and messages of support following my supposed “loss” to Robert Helenius, have compelled me to break my silence. On Saturday, the whole world saw yet another travesty in our beloved sport of boxing when the judges dubiously awarded the vacant ECB belt to my opponent, Robert Helenius. So bad was the call that I felt I could have just stayed away in north London and watched Helenius’ “coronation” as European Boxing’s Lord and Emperor in the comfort of home on the telly!

I am not one to moan and bleat about a bad result. The heavyweight I am is built to take knocks and trips, my champion instincts cajole me to stand up when I fall or lose; and the disciplined professional athlete in me is ever gracious even in the most unjust defeats.

And as Saturday’s is one – and a glaring, blatant one – I feel it’s only fair that I demand an immediate rematch against Helenius.

The thousands who came to see the fight in that massive Hartwall Areena on Saturday will at the very least privately admit shock and surprise at the decision. Millions other boxing fans watching the bout on the small screens; and starved of a true and exciting heavyweight champion for years, felt as sour in the mouth as I did after the fight.

For me, these are the people who matter because the fans are more important judges than anyone else in my trade and industry.

Those judges overlook one very important fact. Saturday’s result will do little to drag the reputation of the world heavyweight boxing category out of the state of crisis which many observers, pundits and fans feel it is enmeshed in.

When I was in that ring alone with Helenius, I saw a lot which no one else in world except the two of us did. Robert will be the first to admit that I gave him the fright of his life. I felt it, I smelt and I touched it. And if he is man enough, he will put that belt back on the table, and I can promise the world, this time I will knock him out and mop the canvas with his head!

I would like to thank all the people that came to the arena, all my fans, promoters and Team Chisora for their belief in support. In you, I know I am a World Champion.

Did 'del boy' write this? Then he's more articulate than one would suspect.

Just finished watching the fight. Definitely a huge robbery! Chisora was pounding helenius all 12 rounds. Showed a ton of will, heart and stamina. Rematch must happen! It really sucks too because it was an awesome fight. Action packed.

Chisora put on a very good performance and he was very focused and disciplined during the fight for the most part. It is sad he probably now feels he will need to KO Helenius in a rematch so he can…

Stopped reading at 'disciplined professional athlete'.
