Ryabinsky: Chisora Will Not Enter Klitschko's Locker Room

By Luke Furman

The Vice President of the Professional Boxing Federation of Russia, Andrei Ryabinsky, will not allow Dereck Chisora to enter the locker room of WBA/IBO/WBO/WBA heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko.

Ryabisnky, one of the head promoters of Saturday's event at Olympic Stadium in Moscow, will not open the door for a possible confrontation before Wladimir enters the ring to face mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin.

Chisora had stated that Team Povetkin selected him as the man to represent them in Klitschko's locker room while the champion has his hands wrapped.

The Klitschko have a lot of heat with Chisora, who in the past slapped Vitali at a weigh-in, spit water in Wladimir face and a few months ago nearly brawled with Wladimir at a nightclub.

"Chisora will not be allowed in the locker room of Wladimir. I am an honest man. I want a fair fight, not cheap tricks," Ryabinsky stated.

Vince McMahon would've made Chisora the special guest ref!!!...the Russians won't even let him in the dressing room let alone the ring....f*ck it, turn this into a tag team fight...anyway, Povetkin getting KTFO in front of his old head Putin

Somewhat understandable. With $23 pumped into the fight do you really want to jeopardize all that in case Chisora pulls his usual cnutish behavior.

VITALI shouldnt be allowed in Povetkins dressing room then!! Vitali is much more intimidating than Chisora!!

It was a nice move from Povetkin and Chisora and I got a laugh out of it but I totally get where they're coming from here. This is too big an event to let a loose cannon like my man…
