Vitali Klitschko vs Derek Chisora–The Consolation Prize

Now that’s some kind of consolation prize Derek Chisora received after losing two of his last three fights against Tyson Fury and Robert Helenius, the chance to fight the bigger, stronger, and grayer Klitschko brother Vitali.

Vitali Klitschko has been invincible in his very active comeback after a 4 year retirement, 8-0, 6 KO and scarcely dropping a round in the process, but he’s now 40 years old and says this is his last year in boxing. We shall see since both the Klitschko brothers have been minting their own money at their choosing with their stellar performances. It’s a stretch to think that he can really retire from free silly money at his beck and call.

Now it’s true enough that the heavyweight ranks have been decimated at the hands of the brothers, so enter the latest dancing bear for Vitali to spar before spearing for the adoring crowds. Previous bouts against similar styled squat bodied Sam Peter, Chris Arreola and Odlanier Solis were easily handled before the knockouts.

Derek Chisora has made a handy negotiating tool for the brothers in maneuvering the forever flaky Mr David Haye into the ring, so now Chisora finally gets a well deserved if unearned chance for the upset of the decade if he can pull it off. He’s young, strong, and cocky even if he showed up double fat against Fury. He compounded that by showing up double dumb with a clowning fight plan of foul tactics against Helenius who was ripe for the taking with a damaged hand and shoulder that required surgery.

Maybe Chisora really thinks he can push Vitali hard enough to pop a wheel loose or strip some gears. Then again perhaps his promoter Frank Warren sees a short shelf life for the undisciplined lad and is making a final roll of the dice.

The grande gala commences on February 18th at the Olympiahalle in Munich, so win, lose, or draw, once again the rich history of heavyweight boxing notches another fight for the record books.
