One of the British most loved and nastiest heavyweights, Derek Chisora will be in action this weekend against his former foe, Kubrat Pulev at the O2 Arena. Chisora hasn’t had a great time recently as he is currently riding a three-fight losing streak. But whenever his name is resounded in the media, all that comes to mind is entertainment.
This fight is also important in the sense that Chisora will be seeking revenge as he dropped a split decision to Pulev when the pair clashed in Hamburg for the vacant European heavyweight title in May 2016. But the times have changed with Pulev doesn’t appear to be the same as he was before. While, on the other hand, the Bulgarian fighter will look to repeat the same feat and add Chisora’s name once more to his glamorous resume. This promises to be a war as a loser could see himself saying goodbye to the sport once and for all.
