By Per Ake Persson

EBU heavyweight champion Derek Chisora (20-4, 13KOs) and mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev (19-0, 10KOs) are in negotiations for a showdown. The purse bids are again postponed, this time from March 11 to March 18. Chisora vs Pulev is effectively also an eliminator for who will fight unified champion Wladimir Klitschko when he´s past his WBO mandatory Alex Leapai. Pulev is already the mandatory challenger with the IBF.

Nothing would surprise me with Chisora.

[QUOTE=Tom Cruise]I'd be surprised if Chisora was seriously considering this fight. He'd make more money, and probably have a more winnable fight against Fury. Anyone else think its more likely Chisora is trying to increase his bargaining power for the Fury fight?[/QUOTE] Pretty much this.

There's no "ducking" on either side if they both decide to take bigger fights instead.
