Dereck Chisora: Maybe I Will Run Around Moscow Naked

By Ruslan Chikov

Controversial British heavyweight Dereck Chisora (15-3, 9KOs) was a big hit with the fans and the local reporters in Moscow, Russia. Chisora participated in a press conference with Roy Jones Jr. and Kostya Tszyu. The heavyweight fighter is in Moscow to attend the WBA cruiserweight title bout between champion Denis Lebedev and challenger Shawn Cox, taking place on April 4th at Crocus City Arena.

A few weeks ago, the British Boxing Board of Control withdrew Chisora's license to box, punishing the fighter for his conduct in Germany, before and after last month's decision loss to Vitali Klitschko. He slapped Vitali at the weigh-in, spit in Wladimir Klitschko's face in the ring, and brawled with countryman David Haye at the post-fight press conference.

Chisora is always ready to be wild and controversial. He once kissed an opponent on the mouth, bite another opponent during a fight and even asked Vitali for a kiss.

When reporters asked the British fighter to discuss how he intends to spend his time in the country, Chisora offered to take off his clothes and run around naked, which drew laughter from the local fans and the journalists.

"What do you want to see? Maybe I'll run around the streets naked. If you want to see it, I'll do it. I'm a fun person," Chisora said.

Chisora is going to hit the gym next month to get himself into shape. He spoke with local manager/promoter Vladimir Hyrunov about a possible fight with WBA "regular" heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin, but doesn't appear to be focused on having that fight in the fall. He wants to get his career in order before exploring any fights.

“My next competition is with myself, because I need to lose weight. I’m going to be in the gym for the next month and a half. The Cannes film festival is on, so I can’t go looking like this," Chisora said.

This tool is a childish attention freak. He makes Davey Haye appear as a likeable guy.
