Does Chisora deserve a huge salary after beating Pulev?
Via Sam Volz: Derek Chisora says he wants a big fight before payday Deontay Wilder or another notable heavyweight following his lackluster 12-round decisive win over second-place boxer Kubrat Pulev last Saturday night at the O2 Arena in London.
The question is, is Chisora worthy of Golden parachute to give him a gentle landing in his retirement years, or hasn’t he done enough to appreciate that kind of royal treatment?
After the battle, Chisora lets the crowd know that he only has a few battles left before he retires, and he then asks promoter Eddie Hearn to connect him to a fight with Wilder.
Chisora also talked about wanting to be paid the same as Conor Benn, a boxer making great money for Hearn’s Matchroom Boxing promotion without ever winning a world title or beating anyone ranked. highest grade.
With some fans seeing the Chisora-Pulev battle as a heist and many others seeing it as a draw, you can’t say that the 38-year-old Chisora (33-12, 23 KOs) deserves a big game after that performance.
Usually, you don’t see cruisers going into wars where they make millions, so it’s hard to sympathize with Chisora if he doesn’t gain hope for the golden parachute.
“I fought him twice already. I don’t need to fight him a third time,” Chisora said at the post-match press conference when asked about the trilogy with Pulev.
“It’s been two years since I won David Price. AJ must have some serious power because I hit that guy [Pulev and couldn’t knock him out]. “
“He has the ability to do whatever he wants,” Eddie Hearn said of Chisora. “He wants Deontay Wilder. I still like Dillian Whyte 3. Yes [Chris] Arreola, [Adam] Kownacki. He wants the biggest matches for the most money.
“Also, they love him here,” Hearn said when asked about the possibility of bringing Chisora to the US “It’s an incredible atmosphere at the O2 tonight, Manchester or wherever he’s fighting.” fight, they love him.
“Listen, he wants the biggest opportunities out there. We should look at the right matches against him and 258 and everyone. It was a big win tonight, I win huge,” Hearn said.
“Listen, I will fight anyone. It depends on what I get paid. “It depends on the zeros we have on the check,” Chisora said when asked what kind of name he’s looking for for his next fight. It’s about money; it’s not about anything else.
“‘You’re fighting a lot and such, and you’re getting paid for this.” ‘Okay, great. Give me a zero, and rock & roll.’ Everyone who coaches me wants to be paid. No need to struggle if you don’t get paid.
“I don’t want an easy fight,“Chisora talked about her next one. “I’m in a fighting game, man.
“It’s war! I tell people, I love this game. I love it, the pain and the ups and downs. I love the bad decisions,” Chisora told UK Boxing after the victory over Kubrat Pulev. “It is a difficult game. You must be mentally prepared to participate in this game. I like this game. I haven’t retired yet,” Chisora said.
