Chisora says boxing is dead, talks Price and anger management
Boxing’s pantomime villain Dereck Chisora says he relishing his bad guy role after admitting that he has now left anger management following a period taking classes on the back of his brawl with David Haye last year.
The 29 year-old from Finchley, who pushed Vitali Klitschko close in a world title bout just over a year ago, is ready to return next month after being reinstated by the British board and says boxing is better for having him around.
“Boxing is dead and you need people like me to bring it back up,” Chisora told BBC Radio Five Live.
“Someone has to take the bad role and as long as people are tuning in and watching the sport that I love, I don’t mind.”
‘Del Boy’ knows that victory on April 20 at Wembley Arena against an as yet un-named opponent, can lead him into a possible British title challenge against David Price after putting a trouble twelve months behind him.
“I don’t mind going to Liverpool in the summer time for a big fight against David Price. I did take (some anger management classes) but I’ve kind of stopped now. We’ll see one day if it’s worked.”
