Malik Scott: Chisora’s a salesman

Unbeaten American heavyweight Malik Scott (35-0-1, 12 KO’s) sees British heavyweight Dereck Chisora (16-4, 10 KO’s) as mainly a marketing fighter that is best as selling his fights rather than in performing in them. Scott notes that Chisora was able to get a title shot against WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko with only 17 fights under his belt last year. Scott and Chisora will be fighting [...]

Chisora: I’m going to do a number on Malik Scott and pack him off to America

Chisora believes it’s going to be a fairly easy [...]
