The trash talk has begun ahead of this Sunday morning’s (AEST) WBC heavyweight title fight between Vitali Klitschko and Dereck Chisora . Chisora (15-2, 9 KO) thinks he has what it takes to knockout the much larger Ukrainian (43-2, 40 KO) and has predicted an eighth round knockout.

Regarded as one of the best pound for pound fighters in the world, the much older Klitschko stands an impressive 6 ft. 7 in and hasn’t been beaten since his controversial TKO loss to Lennox Lewis back in 2003. Since claiming the WBC belt in 2008, the Ukrainian has defended his title on eight occasions beating the best heavyweight boxers in the world.

Chisora started his heavyweight career in promising fashion, winning his first fourteen professional fights. However, his recent form has been less then convincing, losing two of his last three fights to both Robert Helenius and Tyson Fury and will go into this fight as the firm underdog.
