The Dereck Chisora vs Vitali Klitschko fight had some controversy, just enough to pip my interest on the matter.
Vitali Klitschko, praised Chisora’s skills in this youtube video below and was rather courteous by saying Chisora was a legitimate contender
And yet despite that, Chisora spat in Vitali’s face ….. unprovoked … well staring face to face is normal for a boxing fight, but that slap that followed during that was so uncalled for. Even Chisora’s coach said it was unacceptable behavior from his fighter.
If that wasn’t enough, he spat on Vitali’s brother Wladmir just outside the ring when the fight was about to start.
I was very impressed with the Klitschko brothers professionalism and discipline to not let some unmannerly lout such as Chisora bring them down to his level.
The fight ended in a decision in favor for Vitali. I was praying for a knock out win for Vitali, but oh well, this worked out fine as well.
Anyway my point is Chisora shouldn’t have acted like some hooligan. Boxing isn’t like WWF wrestling where theres a shitload of drama going on (well promoter Don King may disagree with me on that point), so i believe they should keep those sorts of things to the WWF, and not in boxing which is a professional sport.
If your interested to watch a post fight analysis, i enjoyed Dwyer’s take on the matter, and here is his youtube video below. I don’t claim his analysis is necessarily right since i’m not a boxing expert, but i found his commentary interesting.

It didn’t take long for Chisora to start more drama soon after the incident with the Klitschko brothers. This time his beef was with David Haye.

After losing a brave 12-round decision to WBC champion Vitali Klitschko in Munich tonight, Chisora mocked the onlooking Haye for his poor performance against Klitschko’s brother Wladimir last year — a fight which cost him his title.
Chisora then confronted Haye during the press conference and the two men grappled around the room with onlookers and entourages getting involved.
