Roach Gives Chisora a Good Shot To Upset David Haye

By Rick Reeno

Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach spoke to BoxingScene.com about this Saturday's big heavyweight grudge match between British rivals David Haye (25-2, 23KOs) and Dereck Chisora (15-3, 9KOs), which takes place at Upton Park in West Ham. Over 30,000 fans are expected. EPIX will televise in the United States.

Haye, a former two division world champion, is the heavy favorite to win. However, Roach does not count Chisora out. In fact, he gives Chisora a very good shot to win - taking into account Haye's year of inactivity and Chisora's impressive efforts against Vitali Klitschko and Robert Helenius.

"I like David. He's a good friend of mine and I hope he wins the fight. The thing is, that is not an easy fight. That fight can go either way...a 50-50 fight. Chisora reminds me a little bit of Joe Frazier without the big punch. He does come to fight. When he fought Klitschko he fought a pretty good fight. He has heart, he's crazy. Hopefully nobody goes to jail," Roach said to BoxingScene.com.

Roach gives Haye the slight edge to win, but not by much.

"The slight edge goes to Haye because he's fought the more quality opponents but don't count Chisora out because he's not a bad fighter when he comes in shape. When he comes in heavy he sucks," Roach said.

I don't really see it being that big of an upset if Chisora pulls it off, Haye just isn't that good.

Haye's advantages ... Speed, power, explosiveness, skills. Chisora's advantages ... he takes a good punch ... hmmm doesn't seem like a fifty fifty to me

chisora has very little chance. He dont land enough and he dont have power or speed.

He's just not a big enough puncher I don't think. He teed of on Sexton for ages to get him out of there and he didn't exactly leave him on his arse. He could bully Haye I suppose. But I…
