Klitschko: I Will Teach Dereck Chisora a Lesson in April!

The title defense of IBF, IBO, WBO and "The Ring“ World Heavyweight Champion Wladimir Klitschko against British and Commonwealth Champion Dereck Chisora has been re-scheduled for April 30 at SAP Arena Mannheim, Germany. Originally, the fight was supposed to happen last year on December 11, also in Mannheim, but had to be cancelled due to an injury of Wladimir Klitschko.

"I am very happy that we have found a new date for the fight so quickly. Chisora insulted me many times and that is why I still have unfinished business with him. He is a very good boxer but as a person he is a loser. Like I had done in December I will now teach him a lesson end of April”, says Wladimir Klitschko.

The reason for the cancellation in December was an injury Klitschko suffered in training three days before the fight.

27-year-old Dereck „Del Boy“ Chisora is the current British and Commonwealth Heavyweight Champion as well as #9 ranked in the independent world ranking. In 2007, he started his professional career and has won all his 14 fights since then, 9 by KO.

For Wladimir Klitschko it will be the 19th world championship title fight. The professional record of the 1996 Olympic Gold medalist is 55 wins (49 KOs) with only 3 losses.

In Germany, the fight will be shown live and exclusively on RTL.

Klitschko should be shot, I hope Chisora makes him look bad.
