Dereck Chisora slapped Vitali Klitschko at the weigh-in the day before  Klitschko defended his WBC heavyweight title. Vitali stated after the incident, “I am going to hit back on Saturday. He will get his beating.”

It was an act so outlandish and brazen that it appeared that Chisora meant business. And in all actuality, he did. The man came to fight and was not going to be beaten down.

In the opening rounds, Chisora tried to bob and weave trying to get in on the inside and land shots on Klitschko. Klitschko remained calm and kept Chisora at the end of his jab. Toward the end of the second round, Klitschko really began to connect with some power shots.

Going into the middle rounds, the fight pretty much followed the same script as Chisora endeavors to get in on the inside with Vitali constantly backing up while keeping Chisora at a measurable range.

In the six round, Chisora landed with some hard counter right hands! One of those right hands visibly shook Vitali Klitschko. Chisora is starting to get into the fight and connect with his punches.

In the seventh round, Chisora begins to turn this boxing match into a fight as he lands some tremendous punches on Klitschko. Chisora is making Vitali miss a lot as he ducks many of his shots. Chisora found a home for the counter right hand! But at the end of the round Klitschko comes back with some hard shots of his own. Chisora does not look like a 10-1 underdog at this point.

Going into the championship rounds, Klitschko is winning but should not be by a wide margin. Chisora definitely is effective with his bob and weave style landing occasionally with right hands, left hooks, and body shots.

The verdict is in – Vitali Klitschko wins a unanimous decision! Scores were 118-110, 118-110, 119-111.
