Chisora Offered Fight Of A Lifetime

According to reports coming from the United Kingdom, Chisora is scheduled to fight the elder Klitschko brother in Munich, German, on February 18, probably the biggest fight of his career.

The Ukranian world champion wants to retire next year and has indicated that he will have only two fights in 2012 before calling it quits.

One of Klitschko’s two fights is against Chisora with the other being against David Haye according to the British Bild newspaper.

The fight against the world champion is a potential money spinner for the Zimbabwean in whatever way win or lose as the Klitschko brothers are among the biggest draw cards in boxing and sport in general.

Vitali’s young brother Wladimir holds three other heavyweight titles, the World Boxing Organisation, the International Boxing Federation and the World Boxing Association but the two have refused to fight each other in a unification bout.

The Kiltschko camp has chosen Chisora instead of European champion Robert Helenius of Finland as they feel the Zimbabwean was robbed of the European title when he fought Helenius in his hometown of Helsinki on December 3.

Klitschko feels Chisora won the fight, ‘Chisora is an interesting opponent for me. For me, he clearly won the European title fight against Helenius,’ Klitschko is quoted as saying by the Bild.

Two of the judges gave the fight to Helenius while the other gave it to Chisora on the same margin 113-115 points but many including promoter Frank Warren and respected trainer Freddie Roch felt the Zimbabwean had clearly won the fight.

Chisora, though, would be more comfortable with the more prestigious world title fight against Klitschko than a rematch with Helenius.
