Chisora: Vitali Never Hurt Me, I Want a Future Rematch

Dereck Chisora was targeting a rematch with Vitali Klitschko after pushing the reigning WBC heavyweight champion the distance before being defeated by a unanimous points decision.

Chisora, 28, also felt that the experience of the 40-year-old Klitschko was the big difference between the two fighters in tonight's bout in Munich.

Speaking after the fight, Chisora said on BoxNation: "I'm not going to hide behind no excuses, I got beat by experience. I'm gonna keep working hard and we'll get a rematch."

Chisora, who was roundly jeered by the spectators, added: "They can boo me, I don't care. As long as they are watching the sport I love, which is boxing, I'm happy.

"I came here to fight and that's what I did and the only thing that beat me today was experience.

"An experienced fighter today won the fight . Did he hurt me? No."

Despite giving Klitschko a run for his money, Londoner Chisora felt he could have done better, saying: "I'm very disappointed with myself, I didn't really work my jab, which I wanted to do.

"I'm very disappointed with myself but you know what I gave a great fight and all the fans at home and all over the world know that I gave a great fight. I didn't come here to get paid I came here to win and the only thing that beat me tonight was experience."

Klitschko, who is unbeaten since suffering a cuts defeat to Lennox Lewis nine years ago, admitted it was not an easy night for him.

The Ukrainian said: "First of all I'm very happy to defend my title. It was not an easy fight.

"It was a good performance from Chisora, he was very motivated, putting me under pressure throughout the 12 rounds.

"I don't want to make any excuses, it was not easy. But I saw with the punches from Chisora he was a little slow, if Chisora had been faster I'd have a problem.

"I'm a little bit upset because I wanted to finish this fight before 12 rounds."

Regarding the unsavoury incidents surrounding the fight, Klitschko added: "I have respect for Chisora as a fighter but I don't have respect for him as a human. He showed a bad example for all boxing, for all fighters. He came from Great Britain but he's not a gentleman."
