Klitschko To The Critics: Chisora Was The Best Available

By Ruslan Chikov

WBC world heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (43-2, 40 KOs), currently training in in Austria, has responded to the critics who feel Dereck Chisora ​​(15-2, 9 KOs) is not worthy of a title shot. Klitschko-Chisora takes place on the 18th of February in Munich, Germany. Klitschko doesn't see the issue with Chisora's selection and firmly believes the former British champion is the best available option at this moment in time.

"At the moment everything is going according to plan. I can not wait to fight in Munich. Chisora ​​is a very challenging opponent, and because of that I'm training really hard every single day. I don't want to take any chances, and I plan to leave the ring on February 18th as the winner. Dereck is hungry for success, young, and he's an aggressive fighter. He is constantly moving forward. In the last fight he defeated Robert Helenius, but the judges awarded the victory to the Fin. But everyone knows that Chisora ​​won the fight. At the present time, there is no better opponent than him. I'm positive that it's going to be a very interesting fight from start to finish," Klitschko said.
