Derek Chisora suffered his third defeat in a row last weekend, in a match where Joseph Parket sent him to the floor three times and was convincing and dominant throughout most of the match. It was the 12th defeat in total for the very popular British heavyweight who will turn 38 in a few days.
Chisora delighted with his courage and desire to fight, and the hall once again greeted him with a standing ovation. However, the question arises as to what may follow after such a performance. The audience still wants to watch him, but he would definitely need a match in which he would have a real chance to win.
His promoter Eddie Hearn wants to keep Chisora on his Matchroom Boxing programs and even thinks there is no need to lower the quality of his opponents. He actually sees him in a match that most would never even think of.
"All of Chisora's defeats came from elite-level boxers, and Deontay Wilder is also elite-level. Listen, Chisora can beat Wilder if he hits him with a good shot." "In fact, I'll tell you this. If he stands on his feet for the first four rounds, Chisora will win that but you would have to go through that, and that would be very dangerous when you have someone against you who hits as hard as Wilder, "Hearn told the Sun.
Hearn seems to have an idea to try to organize that fight. Wilder's career is also uncertain, and the retirement of "Bronze Bomber" is not ruled out, especially after he stated that he achieved everything he hoped for and planned.
On the other hand, an opponent for Chisora will never be hard to find because he is known to make money, and in fact, he should be the easiest opponent among elite boxers. After all, 12 defeats speak everything, regardless of whether they came from Tyson Fury (twice), Dillian Whyte (also twice) and Robert Helenius, Vitali Klitschko, David Haye, Kubrat Pulev, Agit Kabayel, Oleksandr Usyk, and also twice Joseph Parker.
They are all elite boxers, but the fact is that Chisora also almost never beat an elite boxer, that is, he lost to everyone. His biggest wins are against Carlos Takam, Arthur Szpilka, and Malik Scott. And that’s why it’s amazing how he’s stayed in the elite for so long, and especially how, according to BoxRec, he’s still the world’s seventh heavyweight. Of course, because of all this, we are not surprised that absolutely every upcoming boxer wants to fight against him.
