Via William Lloyd: Dereck Chisora predicts Anthony Joshua will knock out Oleksandr Usyk in their rematch and leans in the direction of Tyson Fury to beat Dillian Whyte if that fight goes on.
Chisora says Whyte (28-2, 19 KOs) will need a “miracle” for him to beat WBC heavyweight champion Fury. According to Chisora, Whyte will need to move his head a lot and be in great shape as Fury (31-0-1, 22 KOs) will lunge at him relentlessly.
Chisora (32-11, 23 KOs) has a bout of his own this Saturday night against former WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker (29-2, 21 KOs) that he needs to deal with.
Dereck believes he needs a knockout to beat Parker, based on what happened in their previous game last May, in which he lost by a 12th round split decision. controversy in Manchester, England.
Parker, 29, wants to make sure he removes the judges from the equation by eliminating Chisora. It’s been done before by Dillian Whyte and David Haye, but those fights are long overdue. Chisora is not easily disqualified, especially by defensive-minded fighters like Parker.
Joshua will KO Usyk
“Anthony [Joshua] will take him down this time,” Chisora told Social boxing when choosing Joshua to defeat Oleksandr Usyk in their rematch.
“The first one he wanted to box and demonstrate [that he could beat Usyk by outboxing him]. Can you imagine if he [Anthony Joshua] boxed him and won the right point? They will say, ‘Great warrior.’
“He [Joshua] Chisora said.
Joshua will fuel the rematch with Usyk, and will try to use his stature and strength to defeat the Ukrainian boxer. Last September, Usyk took advantage of Joshua, trying to box him instead of using his size and strength.
Whyte needed a miracle to defeat Fury
“Dillian is going to have to move his head a lot and he’s going to have to get well again because Tyson is going to push him away,” Chisora said of Tyson Fury’s potential next fight against Dillian Whyte in early 2022.
“So Dillian will have to be fit to win this match. Who do I support? You always support the champion because that’s why he is the champion. Dillian needed a miracle or something unbelievable to win that in terms of points,” said Chisora.
Well, it’s too early for us to know if Fury will be up against the next Whyte. What could have prevented the fight from happening is that if Eddie Hearn insisted on a 55/45 split, this would leave Whyte with 45%.
It’s hard to imagine Fury and his team agreeing to defend the less popular Whyte with that sort of split. The top rating wants an 80/20 split, and that’s a sign that they don’t feel that Dillian’s rating is nearly even.
“I’ll take him down,” Chisora said in prediction of an injury-time win over Joseph Parker on Saturday. “I will fight in the same way. He’ll fight the same way, he said, so we’ll see.
“I need to take him down because if I didn’t knock him down, I didn’t win,” Chisora said.
