So Chisora didn’t win but what he did do was put some pride back into British heavy weight boxing. He lasted longer than David Haye did by going the full distance losing on points 119-111, 118-110 & 118-110. It was a brave performance from a man who had caused controversy by slapping the reigning champion Klitschko just 24 hours before.
The fight started 20 minutes after the alloted time as Vitali’s corner wanted Chisoras wraps removed and reapplied. It is still unknown why they asked for this but it didn’t go down too well with home crowd who already had a dislike for Chisora following yesterday antics.
Klitschko out classed Chisora for mostly all of the match but Chisora had started brightly. Vitali was lugging along taking his time to land the correct shots and by round 4 Chisora was bleeding from the noise and mouth but he didn’t not give up. He seemed like a man intent on not giving up on his dream and it looked like Vitali was tiring. The rounds came and went and even by round 9 there was a look on Vitalis face that suggested he had given everything to knock Chisora down. He had landed blow after blow and a couple of great shots that made Chisora buckle but ultimately there was no K.O.
Chisora was putting his heart and soul into it but eventually lost on points. He may have lost but he can take heart that he made klitschko work for his victory rather than David Haye who just ran around the ring not throwing any punches.
