image001Vitali Klitschko defends WBC heavyweight championship against Dereck Chisora in Munich, Germany on February, 18

Two-time WBC World Heavyweight Champion Vitali Klitschko will defend his title against Dereck Chisora at the Olympiahalle Munich, Germany on February, 18, 2012.

Dereck “Del Boy“ Chisora is 27 years old and is rated in the Top 15 in the WBC world rankings. From 2010 until 2011, Chisora was the Commonwealth and British heavyweight champion. In his last fight, Chisora lost a very controversial split decision against Robert Helenius in Helenius’ hometown of Helsinki, Finland. Every boxing fan that watched this fight thought that Chisora clearly won and should be the real European champion. Dereck Chisora‘s fight record is 15 wins (9 KOs) with two defeats.

Dereck Chisora: “Wladimir Klitschko did not fight me last year so I am now going to get the world championship belt from his older brother Vitali. I will show Vitali that his time is over and make him retire. After I beat Vitali, if Wladimir wants revenge I will also fight him and take all their heavyweight championship belts back to London!“

Vitali Klitschko is 40 years old with a professional record of 43-2 with 40 KOs. His two defeats came only as a result of injuries and he never lost his title in the ring. Klitschko has the highest knock out percentage of any world champion with 93 percent. Vitali Klitschko is only the fourth boxer along with Muhammad Ali, Evander Holyfield and Lennox Lewis to win a heavyweight championship belt for the third time. It will be Klitschko’s 16th World Heavyweight Championship fight in Munich.

Vitali Klitschko: „Chisora has proven in his last fights that he is very strong with his infighting. His great performance against Helenius showed that he should be the European champion but I won’t be intimidated by his trash talking.”

In Germany, Klitschko vs. Chisora will be shown live and exclusively on Klitschko’s German TV partner RTL.

Ticket sales start on December 14 and will be available on www.eventim.de.

Wow! It's going be a heavyweight piece of boring _____! Holla


-Radam G :

Anyway! Nevermind the excuses for Doc Vitali's losses. He quit against light-punching Chris "Rapid Fire" Byrd. Nevermind because of a shoulder injury. Top dawg, real boxers go out on their shields. In Doc's other lost, Lennox Lewis cut his face up. The game is known as the hurt business -- called "hurt bitnezz" by OG gamers. Playing up or down because of a lost or win is for the never wases [sic] of the game. They are forever bytching about what they coulda, shoulda and woulda been if not for injuries and unfair breaks in a crooked-arse profession. Holla!

Vitali, the most invincible heavyweight who ever lived. With that said, why is Chisora getting the title shot ahead of the guys who recently beat him--Tyson Fury and Helenius???

I think I agree with Uncle Roger Mayweather: "You don't know isht about boxing!" Vitali the most invincible heavyweight who ever lived? Did you watch or read the reviews on the Helenius vs. Chisora fight?

I think that'd be you. Go listen to your hip hop and mug someone. Vitali is genetically superior, that's all there is to it. That's why he's the most dominant heavyweight this universe has ever seen.

Hehehehehe! Wow! FJC is no doubt TSSU comic of the year. He can really throw around that G superior. Holla!

I love hip-hop and I guess you are assuming that because I listen to it and support Floyd Mayweather that I must be a thug. Remember that "Thou shall not judge." I thought I remember you posting on Christianity? George Foreman (old or young) would have destroyed Vitali. A prime Ali would have been too fast and well equiped (over 80 inch reach). A Cus' D' Amato trained Tyson would have destroyed the body so that the head would follow. I can go on and on. You sound like Hitler during the Max Schmeling era before the Brown Bomber altered the course of his life in one round. You may be a good man, but you don't know isht about boxing.

I respect your attitude and reasoning....but I disagree. While I think that F4JCs exaggerations are laughable, I do believe that Vitali is a uniquely skilled and tough heavy, and that he would have had little trouble with a Foreman of any era, swinging wide and easy to hit. What smaller, slow, modestly skilled Lyle was able to take advantage of, and little light-hitting Jimmy Young toyed with, Vitali would have feasted upon.

LOL. Please read my entry regarding your verse. It's in the "blog" section here.

C'mon, the Roast! You are the Bobby C Comic of the Year and the TSSU Reader of the Year. Danggit! Nobody ever reads clearly what I spit. One can holla at my nearly 14 hundred posts and see that what I spit is often taken out of content or twisted and reweaved totally into something else. I'm getting ready to drop my list of the BEST for 2011. Holla!

Are we talking about the same Vitali that got cut up by Lennox Lewis and quit on his stool against Chris Byrd? Say what you want, but big George had some of the heaviest hands in boxing history. Lennox Lewis cut Vitali's face up horrificly and I think that the heavy handed Foreman would have a good chance of knocking him out. What is your opinion on Ali's chances against Vitali?


-brownsugar :

If Vitali went life or death with a 38-yr-old out of shape Lennox Lewis when he was in his prime, how do you expect me to believe that he could......? Never mind,.. said I wasn't going to join that debate... but it's good to see things getting hot in here... reminds me of the old days. as you know....Chisora lost to Fury after coming into the fight weighing a corpulent 265lbs,.. Then in his next fight he comes in at a svelt 240lbs and attatcks the Nordic Nightmare like Frazier going after Ali in the 1st fight... non stop for 12 rounds... But when the scores come out,.. there's suddenly something Funky in Finland. Chisora's A little raw and wilder than Mayorga when the camera's are rolling,.. but he can be effective and he's big enough to share the ring with a Klitschko... With only 17 fights into the pro-game he prefers to receive on-the-job-training rather than being groomed inside the petre dish of some promoters boxing lab while being feed his 25th record-padding tomato-can. Chisora has been deemed a worthy challenger by the honerable Dr. VK who expressed his disdain of facing any more puny,.. talentless, hopeless contenders and vows to fight the highly combustable Del Boy like it's his last fight dispite the Britts glaring inexperience. VK has never been a much of a one punch KO artist,..But he lumps up his oponents faces with thudding jab-like arm punches as the little guys try to advance past his personal space. Will the Del Boy end up retiring on his stool like the blown-up cruiserweight Adamak??. According to the younger more experienced upstart (with the Nigel Benn personna),..Chisora says he's the uncurable disease, the plague, that will defy the good doctors remedy... (really,... I didn't make that up) Either way I think this will be one of the more entertaining fights involving a KBrother.. and I don't plan on missing it.

Vitali had ONE difficult fight in his life against one of the greatest heavyweights of all time in Lennox Lewis. Ali had a handful of lackluster fights against average opposition. Ali couldn't even put away a 37 year old Floyd Patterson who he outweighed by a good 30 lbs. So let's not go there. If Chisora hit harder he would have a great chance against Vitali. I see two types of boxers that ca trouble Vitali. First is a Lennox Lewis type who has the size to reach him, power to hurt him and strength to muscle him around. The other fighter is a Frazier/Tyson type who really knows how to get inside and stay inside. The actual Joe Frazier would've been too small, the prime Tyson might be a little bit small but more than makes up for it with his power. Chisora is a scaled up version (size wise) of Frazier and has the physical dimensions and configuration to match up with Vitali stylistically. I just don't think he has the power to make it matter.


-Radam G :

Hehehehehehe! FJC is just amazing. I don't even think Doc Vitali believes the FJC hype about him. Holla!


-brownsugar :

@F4JC or is it Fighter for fantasy......Thanks for your response........ There is absolutely no correlation between a young Ali TKO'ing Patterson the stepping stone with ease and Vitali in his prime losing to an aging Lewis any more than there is any valid comparison between the host of HOF'mers Ali competed with and the nondescript lackadaisical competition Vitali Klitschko is cursed with today. Not VK's fault, but it's like comparing the battle hardened war vets of WWII with the peace time Army of the 90's who had to maintain a state of readiness with War Games instead. But fear not a it's fights like VK vs Chisora that helping the heavyweight division inch it's way back to relevancy and out of it's deep pitt of obscurity. Is there anything else???


-FighterforJC :

@Brownsugar: I don't know how old you are but you need to get over YOUR fantasy of Ali's era. That era took itself way too seriously and canonized itself as something special, and the people from that generation went along with it. It's not sacred. Hall of Fame means diddly squat, there's a variety of reasons you get inducted into it. Heck you don't even have to be a real fighter (Sly). You being a Mayweather fan, I know you are infatuated with "would've, could've" arguments, but I'm more concerned with what they actually did. Ali lost to fighters he was supposed to beat (Norton, Frazier, Spinks) and looked painfully ordinary against many, many others. Ali looked beatable too many times. When was the last time you saw Vitali look ordinary and beatable? How many rounds has he clearly lost in the past 10 years? Wait, let me guess. Ali "WOULD'VE" done the same if he were fighting today, right? Yeah whatever. I don't play the would've game.


-Radam G :

Actually GOAT Ali was not "supposed to beat" the late, great "Smokin" Joe Frazier in the first bout. The odds of that time favored Frazier 2 and a half to 1. GOAT Ali was a 2 to 1 favored in bout II, and 4 to 1 in bout III. And he won 'em both. Also Doc Vitali did lose in a bout that he was favored in. That would be against Chris "Rapid Fire" Byrd. I have no bark in this battle because I'm straight-up GOAT Ali and straight-down on Doc Vitali. But Doc Vitali did upset The Nigerian fatware -- I mean Nightmare. GOAT Ali banked two historic upsets 10 years apart again Sonny "Night Train" Liston and "Big" George Foreman. Holla!

LOL. Vitali didn't "lose" to Chris Byrd. He was beating him pillar to post and quit in the best interest of his career. Aside from that "loss" being fuel for Klitschko haters, it paid off for Vitali Klitschko. Perhaps Ali should've quit on his stool against Norton when his jaw got broken. We might've seen an Ali who's as awesome and dominant as Vitali afterwards rather than getting smacked around by Jimmy Young and Earnie Shavers and Leon Spinks and others. lol.

@F4 STEREOTYPES, C'mon F4JC,.. the WOULD'VE COULD'VE arguments have been the sole property of the you and the site VK appologists for several years now even before your name change. Presenting VK as invincible in an era that's in dire need of worthy and competent challengers is like walking thru the bad section of town with handfull of hundred dollar bills. Who wouldn't take a pot-shot of that? Now you wanna bring Mayweather to a Heavyweight fight??? And ask personal questions to prop up a weak argument? What if I told you I was a 75 year old Jewish-Muslin Minority who like rap music? Could ya work with that? The Sport industry, (Media included) have condemned this era of heavyweights years ago. That a fossil (although he can fight) like VK can come back and dominate in this era is no crown of glory...(althoght is does speaks to his ability as a fighter as compared to his peers) it's a testament to impotency of the heavyweight division. These aren't merely my words. This the industry-wide perception.... The best fight he ever had was with Lewis during his prime years... I'm sure even VK himself wishes that he had more moments with highlight clip intensity to define his reign. Is there any thing else??

I LOVE reading this site! LOVE IT!


-Radam G :

YUP! The Doc was "beating" Rapid Fire "from pilar to post." But in the end, no matter why he did it, he QUIT! [I'm reminded how Ezzard Charles was beating a splitted-nose, closed-eyed, gushing-blood Rocky Marciano from pilar to post. The Rock didn't. And the rest is his story and sweet science HISTORY!] Quitting under any condition is something that ATGs don't do. And the seconds in the corner won't let them quit either. [Remember films of the young "Louisville-Lips" Classius Clay trying to quit against Old Sonny "Night Train" Liston. GBGOAT Angie Dundee wasn't havin' it. He told the then scary Clay to shut da double fudge up and run like a bytch "unitl your eyes clear up."> FTR, Don King made a shoulder-separated, before the bout even started, Larry Holmes fight Ken Norton. And the Eastern Assassin didn't quit and won the bout. Doc Vitali quit because an arse thrashing was getting ready to break off, IMHO, "not in the best of interest" of his career. No deep-in-his-soul fighter ever quits. You will have to save him or the opponent would kill him. [The late, great "Smokin'" Joe Frazier would have probably been killed by "Big" [Rev.] George Foreman if the referees in both bouts would not have called a halt. Rev made da Smoke into a human yoyo. Apparently Doc Vitali's corner saved him from getting thrashed by Rapid Fire. And it is no harm in that or a need for to weave a bit of bullsh*tology. Da Doc is AIGHT! Not just GREAT! No good or great heavies are around to test him. It ain't his fault. Holla!
