Chisora: I'll Be All Over Usyk - I Won't Stop Chucking Leather

Heavyweight contender Derek Chisora plans to be all over Oleksandr Usyk when they finally meet in the ring.

They were due to meet last month, but their contest was pushed back due to the coronavirus pandemic.

At the moment there is no new date and venue in play for the contest, which may need an audience to go forward.

Usyk, an Olympic gold medal winner, unified the entire cruiserweight division in 2018.

He officially made his heavyweight debut back in October, with a stoppage win over Chazz Witherspoon.

Chisora believes his opponent's lack of experience at heavyweight, and physical size, will be key in the fight.

"It’s a big step up for me,” Chisora said to inews. “I’m fighting one of the pound-for-pound best fighters in the world. It’s him, Tyson Fury and Canelo Alvarez. So I’m fighting one of the top, top guys. I’m excited about it, I’m like a young kid on Christmas Eve.

“He’s a novice at heavyweight but we know he can fight, so we are going to be pushing hard, chucking leather. We’re not going to stop chucking leather. We’re going to be on it. I’m going to try [to push him for pace]. I’ll be all over him like a baby’s rash.”

Chisora has been making the most of his time in lockdown by staying in shape and watching his weight.

“Lockdown has been amazing [for me],” Chisora said. “I get to spend time with my family. Some people miss that for a while and then they realise ‘hold on, I’ve got these beautiful things at home’ and now for a while we’re just at home hanging out with everybody.

“Every day I pray to God and say ‘give me the strength to wake up in the morning with the power I need to go to the gym and give 100 percent. Every day I wake up with the same strength, I train hard and I keep up with the guys in the gym.”

Has Usyk ever fought a real buzzsaw for 12 rounds? I haven't seen anything like that on youtube. Chisora, on point is a real hard style to handle. It's like Usyk vs Frazier lite. Frazier would handle Usyk in my…

Looping punches like chucking a baseball is exactly what makes you an entertaining B fighter who gets hit a lot. Don't squander your pay
