IBO/WBO/IBF/WBA heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (57-3, 50KOs) doesn't see himself facing British rival Dereck Chisora (15-3, 9KOs) in the near future. Two weeks ago in Munich, Wladimir's older brother, Vitali, retained his WBC title with a twelve round decision over Chisora. There was a lot of controversy that week. Chisora slapped Vitali at the weigh-in. Before the fight with Vitali began, Chisora walked over and spit water into Wladimir face, and then of course the infamous brawl between Chisora and David Haye at the post-fight press conference.
The British contender is already suffering the consequences of his actions from last month, and there are more penalties to come. He was removed from the WBO and WBC rankings, he was hit with huge fines from the WBC and the German Boxing Federation. And the British Boxing Board have scheduled a hearing for March 14, where many expect Chisora to get suspended for several months.
"The Chisora saga has not ended. In addition to a fine, I already know that he was removed from the WBO and WBC ratings, [and they took him off] indefinitely. He doesn't have the right to box in Germany. Now the British Federation will decide on what they plan to do with Chisora - and I think [the hearing] will happen on March 14," Wladimir said.
Wladimir was a little upset with Chisora sitting ringside for the recent heavyweight battle between Alexander Povetkin and Marco Huck, which took place in Düsseldorf, Germany.
"I was very disappointed. I think Sauerland, by placing him in the front row, took a wrong turn. I believe this looks even more like [Chisora receiving] support. I do not understand this," Wladimir said.
