The best prizefighter on the planet today, Wladimir Klitschko, seems to be a little more irritated than usual heading into his latest IBF/WBO/Ring Heavyweight title defense against unbeaten Derek Chisora. This is good news to ring observers around the world.
Chisora, a confirmed woman batterer, has also verbally attacked Klitschko in the media, which has added some much-needed fuel to the Klitschko fire. Expect to see a more aggressive and nasty performance from Dr. Steel Hammer, who has bludgeoned his previous mouthy opponents – Ray Austin and Samuel Peter.
“He (Chisora) beat up his girlfriend that cannot punch back. He’s complaining about my challengers, he calls them cab drivers. He calls me ‘old man.’ A lot of talk,” stated the 34-year-old champion who has a history of responding with extreme violence to opponents who trash talk against him. “I think he’s talented, I think he’s better than David Haye. But as a person he’s full of garbage.”
(Whoa. Wonder what the lately-becoming-more-outspoken-Wladimir would say about the pathetic American disgrace Floyd Mayweather?)
Regarding how he foresees the fight with Chisora playing out on Saturday night in Germany, Wladimir says, “I think he’s going to give me a good challenge, he will start pretty good.”
However, he firmly dismisses any chance of a Buster Douglas-world-shocker this weekend.
“I’m more than sure there will be a KO win over Derek Chisora.”
Klitschko refused to speak about fighting David Haye next but promised to address that situation in detail at the post-fight press conference Saturday night.
