Britain’s former undisputed heavyweight king Lennox Lewis believes that Dereck Chisora has a punchers chance of causing an upset in his big world title shot against his old rival Vitali Klitschko in Germany on Saturday.
Lewis, has seen Klitschko and his brother Wladimir go on to dominate the heavyweight division since he beat the Ukrainian in his final professional bout in 2003. – But the former ruler of the division as warned Klitschko not to underestimate countryman Chisora.
Vitali is the best heavyweight out there, but Chisora has a punchers chance.” – Lennox Lewis
Vitali has built his reputation on a cast-iron defence and dominant jab. His size advantage over Chisora has prompted many to write off the Brit’s chances, he is a 9/1 shot to dethrone the champion in Munich, but Lewis feels Chisora can unsettle Klitschko.
The champion has put together an 11-fight winning streak since losing to Lewis in 2003, while Chisora has lost two of his past three fights.
