Chisora on 4/20 Ring Return: I'm Back In Business

Brash heavyweight star Dereck Chisora says he’s ready destroy when he makes his big comeback against Argentinian Hector Alfredo Avila on Saturday 20th April at Wembley Arena.
 
The Former British and Commonwealth Champion and former WBC World Title Challenger will feature in a ten-round contest on a packed show alongside British stars Nathan Cleverly, Paul Butler, Liam Walsh and Scott Harrison, all live and exclusive on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 437/Virgin Ch. 546).
 
The hard-hitting Londoner has been out of the ring since July last year when he was stopped in the fifth round by rival David Haye in a thrilling fight at West Ham United’s Boleyn Ground at Upton Park that attracted over 30,000 fans - the biggest live boxing event in the UK last year -  and one of the most exciting domestic heavyweight fights in recent memory.
 
He took WBC World Champion Vitali Klitshko the distance last February and pushed the long-reigning Ukrainian the hardest since Lennox Lewis nearly ten years previously, only to lose on the judges scorecards.
 
Chisora’s British Boxing Board of Control license was reissued last month after it was withdrawn last year and the Finchley puncher is now desperate to punch his way back into  world title contention as soon as possible.
 
“I’m back in business and I’m on the road back to the world title,” said Chisora.
 
“I’m looking to destroy Avila first at Wembley Arena and then face one of the other so called rivals next, if it’s David Price then great, I know he wouldn’t be able to stand up to my power and he’d be a good step in the right direction for me,”
 
“It’s exciting to be back in the ring after almost a year out.  I’ve been working hard in the gym with my trainer Don Charles, making changes and improving, and we’re both tunnel focused on achieving the goal of winning the world heavyweight title,”
 
“I’m still only 29 and I’ve had only 19 fights, aside from Haye, I took Tyson Fury the distance despite not being in the best shape, I was robbed against Robert Helenius for the European title in his backyard and then took Klitschko the distance straight after,”
 
“The world title is my goal and I will achieve it.”
 
Nathan Cleverly headlines an action packed card when he defends his WBO World Light-Heavyweight title against mandatory challenger Robin Krasniqi.  Chief supports see Liam Walsh defend his WBO European Lightweight title against former Two-Time World Champion Scott Harrison. Big-hitting super-flyweight Paul Butler, the British Champion, challenges Commonwealth Champion Yaqub Kareem for his title; plus some of Britain’s best talents on the undercard: Enzo Maccarinelli, Frank Buglioni, Joe Murray, John Thain, Steve O’Meara, Gary Corcoran, Mitchell Smith, Joey Taylor, Matthew Fagan and Miles Shinkwin.

Good stuff. Hopefully Del Boy just gets himself in shape now and stays focussed.

Chisora is the sort of fighter the division needs, he's never in a dull scrap.

[QUOTE=Carminedon;13233377]Chisora is a loud mouth bum, lost 3 of last 4 fights. Will never beat any top ranked fighter, his 15 minutes of fame are over.[/QUOTE] You're right, oh wait except he already beat WBO #1 contender..
