Dereck Chisora is no stranger to controversy and the Londoner is also, apparently, not lacking in reserves of energy. It was just over two weeks ago when “Del Boy” was comprehensively beaten on points by Kubrat Pulev in an unsuccessful challenge for the vacant European title (forget the split decision, this was a clear win for the Bulgarian) – despite this, yesterday, as fellow British big man Dillian Whyte attended a press conference to help … Read Article

The former 130 and 135-pound champion, now aged 33, gets a world title comeback opportunity this Saturday, against skilled Italian Michelle Di Rocco.
