Dereck Chisora is All Business in Training For V. Klitschko

By Steve Lillis, courtesy of The Daily Star

DERECK CHISORA is sure the yolk will be on world heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko when they clash next month.

The Finchley underdog will have cracked it if he snatches the WBC heavyweight crown from the 6ft 7in Ukrainian in Munich’s ­Olympiahalle on February 18.

And Chisora insists one of his ­secrets to defeating Klitschko is scoffing seven boiled eggs for ­breakfast every morning.

Former British and Commonwealth champion Chisora, 28, said: “While I am in the crucial part of training my girlfriend has gone to Florida for a break.

“I am in the house all alone, but while she is away I flatly refuse to cook – I’d most probably burn toast.

“I am one of those guys who ­cannot even boil an egg, but a good friend of mine owns a restaurant in Golders Green.

“I need as much protein as ­ possible and eggs are full of them.

“I never, ever get fed up with them and even on fight day I will eat them medium boiled for lunch.”

Chisora, sporting a goatee beard, is in fantastic shape for the shock chance handed to him ­despite a ­controversial European title points defeat against Robert ­Helenius in Helsinki last month.

His weight is falling off and when Del Boy steps into the ring he ­expects to be a lean fighting ­ machine ­weighing around 17st 4lb – far ­better shape than for his loss to Tyson Fury last summer.

Chisora dismissed the idea of ­going away to a warm-weather training camp and is instead based at a gym close to his north London home surrounded by close friends.

He added: “I have never, ever been so relaxed before a fight and we are trying to make training as much fun as possible.

“I am mixing hard work with rest and plenty of smiles and I don’t think Klitschko will be smiling come fight night.

Even the beard I did for a laugh before my girlfriend went to ­Florida.

“But I think when it comes to fight time I will shave it off even though it is fetching admirers.

“Vitali and his brother Wladimir are good fighters, but they have ­never fought anybody like me.” Chisora’s training routine ahead of his huge test against the 40-year-old champion includes daily swimming sessions.

He says: “I only know one way to fight and I will be walking forward for every second, taking the fight to Klitschko.”

Klitschko v Chisora will be live on BoxNation (Sky 456/Virgin546) on Feb 18.

[QUOTE=Tobi.G;11710393]At least Chisora is comming in good shape. He was verry well conditioned in the Helenius-fight already, he went a verry high workrate for 12 rounds for an heavyweight.[/QUOTE] That's true, you gotta give him credit for that. I hope…

At least Chisora is comming in good shape. He was verry well conditioned in the Helenius-fight already, he went a verry high workrate for 12 rounds for an heavyweight.

He's coming straight forward into a brick wall. But good on Dereck for getting into great shape and taking this seriously. This one will be highly entertaining.

Vitali is going to smash this guy into pieces. And I will look forward to watching it.

This guy is hilarious. He's touting his training regime as the best ever... when this would classify as Vitali's worst. He thinks that Vitali won't be ready for him... it's hysterical to say the least. The fact that he only…
