Klitschko, Steward Crossing Fingers For Chisora Win

According to Boxing News, trainer Emanuel Steward believes Dereck Chisora could earn a title shot against Wladimir Klitschko should he beat David Haye on Saturday. Chisora was hand-picked by Klitschko more than 18 months ago, but the unified heavyweight champion twice pulled out of fights with the Briton, opting instead to take on David Haye last summer.

However, Chisora is by no means out of the mix according to Klitschko's trainer, following the Londoner's gallant display against WBC champion and Wladimir's brother, Vitali.

"From Wladmir's point of view I would like Dereck to win," Steward told Boxing News. "Even if Haye looks sensational I don't think Wladimir would fight him again. Ideally he would like to fight Chisora next but Wladimir believes David Haye will be too fast and explosive. I will watch on the TV but it is hard to pick."

[QUOTE=Superflo777;12333952]Too bad the brothers are still the leading lions of the pride, Vitali has been reigning long enough and will soon go in his well-deserved retirement, whether he will fight Haye now or not, and Haye's already lost to the…

[QUOTE=Joeyzagz;12333115]Its always been about taking Haye out before he became a dangerous threat. They wanted to knock him out back in 2009 when he had only 1 official fight at Heavyweight(Monte Barrett). But Haye sidestepped them and got better against…
