Chisora: Whyte Is Easy Money For Wilder
Dereck Chisora was not particularly happy with Dillian Whyte’s performance this past Saturday night at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.
Whyte won what some are calling a very lackluster twelve round unanimous decision over Robert Helenius to capture the WBC silver title.
Chisora has faced both men, losing a controversial twelve round decision to Helenius in 2011, and dropping a 2 close split decision to Whyte in 2015, that many felt Chisora won..
Chisora gave his thoughts on Whyte’s performance to Sky Sports following Saturday night’s fight.
“Dillian Whyte’s fight was not that great at all… Robert didn’t come to fight. Dillian was trying to fight, trying to be a bit like me, but he was doing a poor version of me. The first three rounds, he was trying to blast Helenius out, and Helenius nearly stopped him. Nearly knocked him out, wobbled him a little bit. Then he tried to go with the cross hook style, but he hasn’t got the rhythm to go with that. He was moving his head, but it was moving in slow motion, and he would chuck a shot and it would miss by a mile.
“On that performance, he would have to take an ‘F’. He might have won, but he would have to take an ‘F’. For a guy who is screaming for a world title shot, and the way he boxed off balance, that’s not great.”
Whyte, and his promoter Eddie Hearn, take aim at a world title shot at WBC champion Deontay Wilder, who this Saturday defends his belt in a rematch with Bermane Stiverne in Brooklyn, New York.
Wilder is not very interested in the fight, but Chisora is telling Wilder to take the easy payday.
“If I was Deontay Wilder and I wanted to make a quick, easy, $4 million [then I would fight him]… Deontay Wilder’s sparring partners have got more skills right now than what we saw Dillian Whyte do the other day.”
