Nice fight ! But I don’t understand when some fans when they say ,”wilder ‘s jaw will be tested” … One thing this fight is a good fight for wilder because it will give him more recognition in the boxing scene plus chisora is durable and experienced and that will help him out in the future fights but one thing is for sure that chisora CAN’T PUNCH , he couldn’t hurt fury at all and that’s the reason they chose him ,I am not saying chisora is weak because he can were you down with his relentless attacks and can probably even get a win against wilder if the fight gets past round 8 but by all means for wilder when it comes to being ko’d chisora is a safe opponent for that reason , chisora can’t test wilder’s jaw ,he might win but won’t stop him with one punch !Posted May 11, 2013 1:00 am

Tark, you made som very solid posts on this one.Posted May 10, 2013 7:56 pm
I like Wilder, but it concerns me that he lacks so much control. He’s got great power and good footwork, but he fights like an amateur when he gets the opponent hurt. You’d think someone with that much natural footwork and hand speed would be a better boxer. Wilder is talented, but he’s gonna have to get a bit more experience before I’d feel confident with him in the ring with a Klitchko. His only chance at this point is landing a big right against Wlad. Otherwise Wlad outboxes him as well as Vitali.Posted May 10, 2013 7:40 pm
It sounds good that Wilder stopped Harrison in a round but true the stoppage was a bit wild and messy looking. Like other large heavyweights he’s always going to look a bit open when he goes to anything quickly. Wilder, Fury and Price are giants but it won’t take giants to beat them, someone with a good combination of speed and power will give them big problems.Posted May 10, 2013 3:16 pm
I am just not impressed at all with this wilder guy. Perhaps I’m reminiscing a tad but at identical points in their respective careers, Tyson had already won the HW title by now and unified the title in his very first defence. Wilder has not even fought an opponent anyone has ever heard of and a true potential would have been pushed up far quicker than this by his promoter. Ok so tyson’s opposition was not great but it was far better than what wilder has faced and he has also been rocked badly by journeymen in the process. Hes got good power for sure but his wild swings are very telegraphed and a decent counterpuncher would destroy him (someone like Haye). He even fell over whilst punching against harrison – very off-balance and amateurish.
He wont get Chisora out of there early and it will be very interesting if chis can smother and bustle his way nto the late rounds with energy-sapping body shots. I fancy chisora by points in this fight.Posted May 10, 2013 2:46 pm
Wilder is fighting regularly which is good in it’s self and has no problem with fighting overseas. We know he can punch but it’s still unclear what else he can do, David Price looked pretty impressive until he got caught by Thompson.Posted May 10, 2013 1:40 pm
This is a good fight. Of course, I said the same thing about Wilder vs. Harrison. In any case, Wilder has stepped up in the last couple of months, and should be credited for that. Top ten names? No, but far above the ones he was knocking over last year.Posted May 10, 2013 1:19 pm
Tony Thompson would have been a better option for Harrison then Wilder.Posted May 10, 2013 1:04 pm
Good to see Mike Perez back in action, he would be a good opponent for either Wilder or Chisora.Posted May 10, 2013 1:00 pm

Wilder should fight two other bums for reaching the perfect mark of 30-0-0 30 KOs and wait 2014 to have serious opponents, I would like to see Wilder destroy Chisora but I doubt about it, hope i’m wrong
But fighting Chisora is not a strategy toward Wilder’s justice problems? I don’t know, I ask. sorry for my bad englishPosted May 10, 2013 12:08 pm
I like Chisora for this one that big Wilder has lots of flaws to be exposed, Chisora will take him into deeper water than he’s been in yet.Posted May 10, 2013 11:52 am
Wilder has been very well manged so far, Can’t see his promoters taking any big risks yet. Half decent name but punch resistance may well be shotPosted May 10, 2013 11:14 am
If this fight comes off and it might not due to WIlders legal troubles. What happens if Chisora makes it past the 4th round? Wilder has never been past 4.Posted May 10, 2013 11:12 am

This was great news. Deonray Wilder vs Dereck Chisora will be a slugger war.Posted May 10, 2013 10:09 am
“enigmatic Dereck Chisora “…. wow.Posted May 10, 2013 8:43 am
Chisora is damaged goods after the beating from Vit and Haye, both hit him flush with monstrous shots, he used to have iron chin but I’d say Vitaly softened up and Haye finished him up for good. You’d think Chisora has learned a lot being in with the top elite fighters but he didn’t look particulary good beating his last average featherfisted fighter (what ever his name was).
Unless he overnight comes in uber-motivated and with redefined skills of attack and solid defence – i.e. pre-Vit Chisora, then he might have chance, otherwise an easy KO for Wilder bombing him flush from outside and I don’t think this damaged version of Chisora has enough punch resistance left to take thos monstrous superheavyweight shots flush with his poor footwork and holed defence. I wish I’m wrong though…Posted May 10, 2013 7:58 am

Wlad Fan (the haters are in KLIT Denial!)
I think Chisora is toast. Before getting KO’d by Haye, his biggest accomplishments in (rapidly) descending order are: 1.) managing to not get KO’d by a nearly 41-year old and past his prime Vitali Klitschko 2.) became some sort of British folk hero for getting “robbed” in what was really a fairly close fight with Helenius (himself a bit overhyped…biggest wins over damaged goods Sam Peter and damaged goods Liakhovich). It wasn’t really a robbery anyway…robbery was Lewis-Holyfield #1…this qualified more as a poor decision rather than flat out robbery and 3.) came up with a pretty good excuse for loosing to Tyson Fury, who is of course scared to death of Wladimir. His career officially ended via ass kicking by Haye. I’m no fan of Haye, but I don’t think he a hardcore scumbag like Chisora. I hope this is the last we see of this guy.Posted May 10, 2013 12:11 am

Decent step up fight for Wilder.. but then again I’ve never rated Chisora highly either. His technique is appalling and he has very little power. He looked like absolute crap the last time out too, struggling to put away an Argie who’d been KO’d early by cruiserweights. He has a good engine and a sturdy chin though, which is more than can be said of all of Wilder’s other opponents.. And seeing as Wilder has been dropped and hurt before at the low level he’s been mixing it up at, I guess Chisora poses a relatively big threat to get him out of there.Posted May 9, 2013 8:58 pm

Not surprised here with this fight.They are looking for a fighter to check Wilder with and Chisora is perfect.Chisora has been in with Haye..Fury..R.H….V.K..and ofcourse Chisora isnt a wrecking machine,he can look medicore like against Haye..Fury.Its not a huge gamble like against Pulev,but it will answer alot more overall.This could gauge Wilder for a huge money fight against Haye or Fury if things work out for them aswell down the road,so this fight is no surprise.Lets just hope Chisora comes in shape and ready to fight like the last chance saloon,because if Wilder is sloopy like some excpect a ready Chisora could send him back to square one.Posted May 9, 2013 5:34 pm
I`m glad this fight is being made, it is interesting to see WIlder finally, FINALLY step up some.
Chisora has a very limited skillset, but what he does have is pressure. He made Helenius go backwards and he can`t fight backwards. He pushed Fury and Vitali backwards, and they handled it okay, he made Haye go backwards and Haye ate it up since Haye is sitting there offering his face as a target so that you walk into his right hand.
Wilder – can Wilder fight going backwards under pressure. HOw do chickenlegs go after 5 rounds? Will Wilders mask slip if Chisora trashes him in the leadup?
Personally I think Wilder wins it, and what I am interested in is the point at which he can make Chisora stop coming forwaard.
Even as a Brit I kind of hope Wilder wins, so that we can add a new exciting name to the division. We know what Chisora is – a crazy gatekeeper. But what is the WIndmiller – MIchael Grant MkII? A 6″7 Herbie Hide?Posted May 9, 2013 5:32 pm
Dont wilder got a cause pending? If this fight is in the uk how is he allow to leave the country w charges pending? Oh he is goin to murder dude!Posted May 9, 2013 5:14 pm
Wilder is finally stepping up a little against better opponents. We might see his chin tested in this one, if Chisora can hang in there a few rounds. These contender types need to start proving they deserve a title shot. Chisora has lost a few, but it’s not a bad match.Posted May 9, 2013 4:44 pm
Well Neal…. Vitali landed a few of them on DC.. Fury didn’t show too much versatility in his attack — but he stayed out of danger except for a couple big rights DC caught him with.. Helenius seemed lost in there with Dereck and really didn’t perform.. Haye found DC’s chin with smasheroo uppercuts and I think he has the most versatile skills in the heavyweight division.
I think Wilder will land a couple of uppercuts because he’ll have time to set them up.. He has to forget about the importance of the fight and just relax. Not easy to do the first time you’re on the world stage.
A lot of these guys haven’t been able to get past the 2nd round with DW. All the punches Deontay has been practicing in the gym for 5 years haven’t been put to use. I think that’s what an opponent like Chisora is all about.. Getting Deontay some rounds so he can build up his game and arsenal to something more than just blowing people out early.. It’s even more important for big punchers than anyone else.
Foreman never went over 2 rounds in the 3 years before he fought Ali — so getting a lot of rounds against some really good fighters, and hearing, “round 9… round 10… round 11.” is very important … Mike Tyson was another big hitter who didn’t hear that a lot while he was in the ring with somebody who could box, punch, and think.. Buster Douglas was happen to introduce him to the experience.Posted May 9, 2013 4:41 pm

Wilder is very limited technically, Harrisson only landed 2 shots and Wilder took it flush, Chisora will test his chin and should often connect.Posted May 9, 2013 2:47 pm
I would like to see Wilder face Mago or Lucas browne after chisora. I am sick of seeing these perfect record guys fighting nobody then getting a championship fight. Anyway the division is looking promising.Posted May 9, 2013 2:45 pm

Wilder stepping it up. I am beggining to like this guy. I have been very critical of him for 2 or so years. Chisora has lots to everybody that is somebody and always gives them a hard fight. Clearly outclassed by Vitali but kept on coming. Beat Helenius, gave haye a dangerous nite till right up till he was Koed and even on poor form against a much bigger fury was a threat the whole time. Wilder will not get a 1 round KO with this guy. He will have to fight smart, be patient, us his height and reach to control the distance and pace. A very good fight.Posted May 9, 2013 2:04 pm
At least I don’t see Chisora being intimidated by all those KO’s.Posted May 9, 2013 2:02 pm

This will be a great fight to compare the skills of Wilder versus those of David Haye, Tyson Fury, Robert Helenius, and Vitali Klitschko.. Obviously if Wilder destroys Chisora in 3 or 4 rounds a Wladimir fight is warranted. If he struggles with Chisora like Helenius did, Deontay will need several more fights with top-10 contenders to round out his skills. I feel he’s going to crush Chisora like a grape. He’s been begging for a fight like this.
Chisora’s left jab is very hard, but it’s a power jab. It darts out predictably like Sonny Liston or George Foreman’s jabs. You can beat down unskilled heavyweights with a power jab. Joe Louis had a lightning jab, but Max Schmeling was able to time it because it was so predictable. Leotis Martin sat on Sonny Liston’s ponderous jab for round after round until Martin got the opening he promised everyone he would get. He knocked Liston cold. Leotis Martin was 6’ X 194. Wilder is 6’7” X 230, a HUGE advantage when firing over a jab. Hearns shooting down on Roberto Duran. Wilder is sitting on a nice high perch and he’s quick. He’s been sharpening his right hander for 5 years preparing for an opportunity like this. He’s slavering.
Chisora is aware of DW’s right. He knows exactly what Wilder will try to do. There’s only so much you can do in training camp when you’re 6’ 2”, and your jab is a big part of your game. You’re facing somebody 6’ 7” with a monster right hand who wants you to exchange jabs with him. DC will probably feint jabs more than ever before. He’ll try to flick his jab as quick as he possibly can. He’ll try to counter DW’s big rights with his pretty fair left hook, like he tried with Vitali. Then he’ll try to slug, maul, and grab. Get Deontay into the 10th and 11th rounds—unfamiliar territory for the relative greenhorn who’s used to blitzing everybody in a round or two. Smoke him like a cigar in the championship rounds.
That’s what I would try to work on in camp. Edurance and conditioning. I’m not sure for how many rounds that strategy will work—given that Derek leans in, and Wilder’s left uppercut is getting more and more deadly every month. David Haye knew Chisora was easy to hit. He knew his jab, his right counter, and his uppercuts, liver shots, left hooks, and whole damned arsenal were going to rain terror on Chisora like they did on Ruiz—until the inevitable KO. Wilder’s arsenal and defense aren’t as polished as Haye’s. That fact is Chisora’s only hope.Posted May 9, 2013 1:17 pm
What a great fight.
I really cant pick a winner as wilder is an untested fighter.Posted May 9, 2013 1:16 pm
This is a good fight and I’m glad Wilder is finally stepping up. As long as Chrisora shows up like he did against Vitali we can find out a bunch about Wilder. 1 is does he have a chin, 2 can he take the pressure, 3 can he fight for 3 minutes a round because Chrisora will bring it. With Chrisora we can find out if he is a gate keeper or a real threat to all heavies minus the KlitchkosPosted May 9, 2013 12:53 pm
Should be fun. Gavin v Vassel should be a good fight too.Posted May 9, 2013 12:31 pm
Chisora should get the win and by KO. Hope he doesn’t start spitting on people again though.Posted May 9, 2013 12:30 pm
This is a great chance for Delboy to win his fans over again. He got robbed vs. Helenius, impressed vs. Big Vitali, was not himself vs. Tyson Fury, but lost clearly vs. Haye. This is a good way to prove that he is still a top dog at hw in the UK.Posted May 9, 2013 12:14 pm
Chisora does enjoy fighting the tall guys. Helenius was gifted and Vitali struggled.Posted May 9, 2013 11:50 am

I will believe it when I see it but if so this represents Wilder’s first real step up in competition. If nothing else Chisora will test his chin.Posted May 9, 2013 11:49 am
This will be good, Wilder might be overhyped but same could be said of Chisora. One good fight against Vitali, you coudl say a good effort against Haye until getting sparked and rubbish against Fury (didn’t see Helenius figth so can’t comment) Guess it depends on whats left of Chisoras chin, 12 rounds of Vitali bombs plus Haye might mean he’s on the slide. If it goes past 5 or 6 rounds Chisora gets itPosted May 9, 2013 11:38 am
