Chisora predicts KO

12 01 2012

Derek Chisora is confident he’ll knockout Vitali Klitschko when the two meet on February 18 in Munich for the WBC heavyweight title.

Chisora predicts KO win

Chisora stated at the press conference that number eight is his lucky number and that “Vitali is going down in the¬†eighth¬†round”.

Chisora, who has lost two of his last three, was scheduled to fight younger brother Wladimir twice before but both fights were cancelled due to injuries suffered by Wladimir.

This is a massive chance for Chisora and he has to come into this fight in the best shape of his career if he is to pose any kind of threat to Vitali.

Despite Vitali’s age; he holds all the advantages going into this fight. He’ll effectively be fighting as the “home” fighter, he is the taller man, has the longer reach and has more experience and power.

If I’m honest I don’t give Chisora any sort of chance at all in this fight and he’ll do well to be competitive against Vitali.

Chisora is going to have to take chances to try and get to Vitali, similar to how he did against Robert Helenius, and hope for a lot of luck as well.

But I expect another victory for Vitali but with the kind of character Chisora is; it should be exciting to watch at least.

Haye v Klitschko confirmed

Klitschko v Haye: Finally on

After months of wrangling, the much-anticipated heavyweight clash between WBA heavyweight champion David Haye and IBF and WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko finally looks set to take place this summer.

Negotiations between the two parties have been on-going for months, collapsing on at least two occasions that the public are aware of, with both parties blaming each other for the collapse which has led to a lot of animosity between the two camps.

But both parties seem to have settled any disputes with the contracts and look set to meet either June 25 or July 2, with the bout likely to take place at one of three football stadiums in Germany – Dortmund, Gelsenkirchen or Kaiserlautern – after the Klitschko confirmed the UK has been ruled out.

The Klitschko management team has also confirmed the bout could take place somewhere across Europe.

Yet one key issue in regard to this fight is the contract that David Haye has signed.

If Wladimir cannot make the fight due to injury – he has pulled out of his last two fights against fellow Brit Derek Chisora – and so long as he pulls out three days before the fight, elder brother Vitali Klitschko, who holds the WBC heavyweight championship, could step in and fight Haye.
