Derek ‘Boris Johnson’ Chisora bored of talking, just wants to go for it

Derek Chisora explained his game plan for Kubrat Pulev ahead of their heavyweight collision on Saturday night.

The man who was formerly known as “Del Boy,” now going by the moniker “WAR,” is ready for exactly that.

Speaking during fight week, Chisora is looking to get into it with the tough Bulgarian and duke it out.

Wearing a Boris Johnson mask for the weigh-in, Chisora scaled eight pounds heavier than Pulev’s 250 pounds.

“Let’s all be honest. It’s all the same talk, to be honest with you. ‘Yes, I have trained hard, I’ve hit the bag harder, I’ve sparred harder, and I’ve done everything harder.’

“How many fights have I had? 45 fights. It’s the same chat. I just want to fight,” said Chisora.

“We can all sit here and say, ‘I’ve trained hard, and I’ve done this and done that. It doesn’t really matter to me. All I want to do is just put my gumshield on, put my gloves on, walk out to the ring, and fight. That’s all I want to do.

“I’m just excited for Saturday. My whole point right now is just bringing big fights, entertaining the fans, and just doing what I like to do. I’m not tired. I’m just tired of your bull basically (to Pulev).”

Mike Tyson plan

“I’ll be honest with you. If you’re a boxer and you don’t have the confidence, then you’re in the wrong business. Mike Tyson always says everyone has a plan until they get hit. All the fighters here have a plan.

“Everybody wants to win their fight. It’s all about that last edge, who wants to go to the other end. That’s it.

“It’s all about when the bell goes, and you know what time it is. My style is biting on the gumshield, and let’s go for it. That’s what I’m bringing. I’m bringing that.

“This is what I love. You know what my plan is already. You know exactly what to expect. From the get-go, we are going – there are no two ways about it.

“I make myself go. Whatever he wants to do, he can do. I think you (Pulev) beat me because we were in Germany, let’s be honest.

“Don’t worry about me. Just worry about yourself.”
