Dereck Chisora To Invade Russia To Watch Lebedev-Cox

By Ruslan Chikov

Controversial British heavyweight Derek Chisora is planning to attend a big boxing event being staged on April 4th at the Crocus City Hall in Moscow, Russia. On February 18th, Chisora ​​lost a unanimous twelve round decision to WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko. The fight attracted worldwide attention because of the incident at the weigh-in where Chisora slapped Vitali. Chisora also had a violent brawl with countryman David Haye at the post-fight press conference. During a recent hearing, the British Boxing Board of Control punished Chisora for last month's incidents, by taking away his license to box.

In the main event of the Moscow show, 32-year-old Russian boxer Denis Lebedev will defend his WBA interim-cruiserweight title against Shawn Cox from Barbados.

"I want to come to Russia to get acquainted with this great country and I want to watch the fight between Denis Lebedev and Shawn Cox," said Chisora in a statement provided to BoxingScene.com. "Dennis is a great boxer, and we share the same promoter - Frank Warren. I hope that I'm given a chance to talk on TV about these recent events in my life because the gossip and [the] rumors have been incredible. I want to tell the truth and connect all the dots. I hope that my future performances will be broadcast on Russian television."
