Interview with Dereck Chisora from the final public workout in Munich ahead of his world heavyweight title challenge against formidable WBC champion Vitali Klitschko on Saturday night at the Olympiahalle Stadium.
During Chisora’s public workout at a Mercedes Benz showroom in the city, one interested spectator in the audience was the champion Vitali, who together with his team watched the Englishman go through his final warm down routines for the waiting press.
In the interview by Steve Lillis for BoxNation DelBoy responds to the special guest and the fans who came out to support him and the home ones he seems to be winning over!
I’m a likeable guy, what’s there not to like about me.” – Dereck Chisora

Chisora has predicted he will win the WBC world title by knocking out champion Klitschko out in the eighth round of their heavyweight title fight.
The Londoner coming off two defeats gets the unlikely opportunity to shock the boxing world when he steps into the ring with Klitschko on Saturday night in the hope of becoming the heavyweight champion of the world.
In number eight Klitschko goes down.” – Dereck Chisora
DelBoy is a big underdog to pull off what would be a massive upset, Klitschko is unbeaten since 2003, when another British heavyweight beat him, Lennox Lewis, be it on cuts. Klitschko’s other defeat was also a injury loss, so in effect the hugh Ukrainian is unbeaten. In his two premature losses he was leading in both fights before they ended.
Chisora is no doubt up against it and victory would be up there with the best efforts of a British fighter winning abroad. Delboy has never been short on confidence and, despite the odds being stacked against him, has predicted a knockout win over Klitschko.
“In number eight Klitschko goes down,” Chisora said.
“He knows that he’s got a young fighter, hungry, looking to take his title, and he’s going to have to bring out his best game ever, you just have to be excited,”
“You don’t have to come with a game-plan. Enjoy what you’re doing in the ring and everything will come into play.
“If you try and look for anything you find yourself struggling.” added Chisora.
Britishboxers will be ringside in Munich to bring you a fight report on Dereck’s performance and also follow the progress of Liverpool’s featherweight on the comeback, former British and Commonwealth champion Stephen Smith, who meets Hungarian Arpad Vass, in a warm up before next month’s vacant WBO Inter-Continental super featherweight title.
We wish Dereck all the best in his biggest fight and hope he can bring that heavyweight title back home with him.!
