Dereck Chisora Makes Bold Statement Ahead Of Oleksandr Usyk Fight
Dereck Chisora isn’t shying away from expressing belief in his abilities.
Chisora is set to take on Oleksandr Usyk in the main event of a Matchroom Boxing card on October 31. Chisora is hoping to extend his winning streak to four. To do so, he’ll need to be the first man to defeat Usyk, who has a perfect pro boxing record of 17-0.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Chisora explained why he believes he’ll stop Usyk in his tracks (via Michael Benson).
“It’s not about how much I want it. You know, when you want something badly, what you will do for it. I’ll go through this man. Whatever he has got, he’ll need more to stop me. The way I will come for him will be unbelievable. I will go through him. I don’t think, in the heavyweight game, there is anybody stronger than me right now. Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury, Dillian Whyte, Deontay Wilder? No, they aren’t stronger than me. I’m stronger, crazier and I want it more.”
Usyk is the mandatory challenger for the WBO Heavyweight Championship. That title is held by Anthony Joshua, who also holds the WBA (Super), IBF, and IBO gold. Being a former WBO Cruiserweight Champion, Usyk was given the mandatory status with his move up to heavyweight.
Chisora would like to throw that mandatory status in disarray with an upset victory. Chisora hasn’t lost a bout since December 22, 2018. That was a knockout loss to Dillian Whyte in the 11th round. It was the ninth loss in Chisora’s career.
