With today’s victory, Chisora managed to avenge his earlier loss to Kubrat Pulev while also bouncing back from a 3 fight losing skid. 1 of those losses came at the hands of current Heavyweight Champion, Oleksandr Usyk while the other two at the hands of Joseph Parker. Chisora has also fought other greats like The Klitschko brothers, Tyson Fury, and Dillian Whyte though he may not have come out victorious in these bouts they are formidable names to have on your resume regardless.

After his performance today, Chisora had a unique call out for former Heavyweight Champion Deontay Wilder. Wilder has been out of action since his third loss to Tyson Fury, while the bout was closer than most expected, Fury was still able to walk out with the finish in Round 11. Since then Deontay has stayed away from the spotlight.

Exlaborating on his wish to fight Wilder, Chisora stated, “I think we’ve both come out of two losses, back-to-back,” he said. “I think why not? People are saying ‘why does he want to do that for?’ They’re not me. People are not built like me.” said Chisora explaining that the exclusiveness of the fight is what attracts him towards it.

“The thing is, I will be honest with you, I want to fight everybody. When I hang it up I can say I fought everybody in my era and enjoyed it. I loved it, that’s what I want to do, “ said Chisora further elaborating that he’s more concerned about the names on his legacy rather than the verdict itself.

When asked if he’s confident he can beat one of the heaviest hitting fighters of the past decade Chisora said, “I’m not sure, but 100% I could do it” showing his willingness to square off against the Bronze Bomber.

While Deontay has not shown much of interest in making a return to fighting, during a recent statue unveiling in his hometown, Deontay mentioned he would make one last run to regain his title and was ready to lace up the gloves again. Do you think Chisora is a good tune-up fight for the returning Brinze Bomber or will the experience of the OG get the better of him.
