Chisora: China Will Know Me After I Whoop Vitali’s Ass

By Jake Donovan

Dereck Chisora doesn’t just want to beat Vitali Klitschko when they meet on February 18; he wants the entire world to stand up and take notice.

The outspoken Brit respects the Klitschko brothers and their ability to dominate an entire generation of heavyweights. Vitali has barely lost a round ever since his ring return in Oct. ’08 following a 46-month absence, while younger brother Wladimir has served as the division’s lineal world champion since June ’09.

What Chisora is none too fond of is the negative aura that comes with the heavyweight division these days, to which he directly attributes to the dull nature of their fights.

“I’m physically coming to take what’s mine,” Chisora insists will be the case when the two collide in their heavyweight title fight next month in Munich. “Everyone is tired of you and your brother. Come February 18, there will be a new king.”

It’s a tall statement coming from a fringe contender who has lost two of his last three contests, although his last fight actually saw his stock raise in defeat. The consensus opinion of last December’s showdown with unbeaten Robert Helenius was that was Chisora (15-2, 9KO) was badly robbed in what was ruled a split decision in favor of the Nordic heavyweight.

Official loss or not, it was a much improved performance from Chisora’s poor showing against Tyson Fury earlier in the year, showing up at a bloated 261 lb in dropping a unanimous decision.

Meanwhile, Klitschko (43-2, 40KO) continues to steamroll top competition. His September defense against consensus Top 5 contender Tomasz Adamek was a one-sided beatdown en route to a 10th round stoppage. The downside was the fight becoming monotonous to watch due to its lack of competitiveness or ability to shift gears, a recurring theme with the Klitschkos.

By his own admission (or at least insistence), Chisora doesn’t even bother watching his opponent’s fights and claims to not know much about him. All he knows is what he hears, and what he claims to hear is that the world is rallying behind the thought of a new regime atop the heavyweight division.

“I’m not taking nothing away from (Klitschko),” Chisora insists. I heard (Klitschko is) primarily a puncher but you can’t punch something you can’t see. The United States is pulling for me. The UK is pulling for me. Half of Europe is in my corner. Boxing fans down in South Africa, they all rooting for me too.”

Playing up to the moment, Klitschko sarcastically asked, “What about China?”

Showing is wit behind the mic to be superior to his skills in the ring, Chisora believes the world’s most populated nation will eventually fall in line once history has been made.

“China never heard of me, but after I whoop your ass they’re probably going to know me.”

i like this dude, he's had some fun fights in those I've seen him in. I'll be surprised if Chisora is able to come within a foot of touching Vitali...let alone hitting him flush. and yeah I'm exaggerating on that,…

[QUOTE=zphd;11662656]If Chisora shows the very early traces of a Joe Frazier type of fighting he showed with Helenius, we're in for a treat. WAR DEL BOY!!!!!!!! :boxing:[/QUOTE] Every Boxer looks great if the opponent is right. Look how poor Adamek…
