Chisora Rips Euro Promoters: They'd Sell Their Mothers

British heavyweight Derek Chisora (15-1, 9KOs) drew laughter from local reporters when he discussed his frustrations with European promoters. On Saturday in Helsinki, Finland, he faces Robert Helenius for the vacant EBU heavyweight title at the sold-out Hartwall Arena. Chisora was previously scheduled to fight WBO/IBO/WBA/IBF heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko, twice, and both times Klitschko withdrew with injury. Chisora never got his shot. Klitschko instead took a very lucrative fight with David Haye, and Chisora lost a twelve round decision to domestic rival Tyson Fury.

"Prior to this, Helenius fought former champions Sam Peter, Lamon Brewster. These guys came to Europe for the money - for Klitschko and Helenius. The European promoters are killing boxing. They are rapidly pushing their fighters, placing them in stupid fights. For a pound, they are willing to sell their own mother. However, in my case, Helenius has gotten himself into a very difficult situation," Chisora told Alexander Pavlov.'

"[Helenius] is 27 years old, and I'm 27, and we both want to win. It will be very, very tough fight. I think that he should have prepared for this fight in the summer, and not the cold, because it's going to get very, very hot in the ring. When I face him, I'm going to send him into oblivion. He won't even have time to utter a word. I can not wait for this dark night to come. You, Robert, - have a big problem."

I give Chisora props for taking this fight, Fury seems to be taking a more cautious route which is the traditional way to build up domestic heavyweights. If he does get the win then he's probably fighting Wlad next.

i think del boy takes a beating but he cracks me up & i want to see how good he really is.i was hoping he'd be lighter & in shape vs fury but 2 botched wlad fights(which were blatant financial ducks yet haye gets grief for doing the same) i'm sure were huge let downs...helenius in rd 5 at the lat...

How long was Del Boy's camp for this? 3 weeks? Surely there's no way he's ready, he was fat and gassed for Fury, are we going to see much better here? That said, can't help but like the guy!

chisora- to make a pound you're now all over the internet saying you want to make love to helenius, a big ugly massive lump of man. i actually am pretty sure i'd sell my own mum before getting jiggy with helenius thank you very much.

People rip Chisora but he isnt half bad. He's got balls for fighting one of the biggest prospects in Heavyweight boxing. Sadly, i cant see him beating Helenius. I think Helenius will stop Del Boy.
