Not trying to be controversial but how comes Del boy doesn't get the stick this board had reserved for Jamie Cox, considering he was considerably worse in his behavior?
I remember Chisora getting a lot of stick back in the day for the kissing, spitting and biting incidents. Seems to have won most people over now.

I like him. Reminds me of your crazy uncle/cousin. A good laugh at Christmas, but your glad you don't live with him the rest of the year.

But rest a free pass for battering his woman but Cox gets the woman beater award even though his Conviction was overturned with the victim admitting she was lieing.

I wonder why that is lol

Havent been to the O2 in ages but I am thinking of going. Any advice on tickets?

Looking at tier 1, are any stands better than the others?

Is top, middle or bottom better for viewing?

Is there any value in the £200 tickets with the railing and food and drink vouchers?

Cheers for any help/info.

We've discussed this before. You can bullshit as much as you like but only his assault conviction was overturned and his victim didn't admit she lied. At least there is no record of that anywhere. He was still found guilty of harassment, violence to secure entry and criminal damage. They had the 999 call recording of him smashing the door down and threatening her.

Chisora is a weird dude who appears to have a lot of issues. Don Charles alluded to that recently.

The IFL video before the press conference is a bit strange, he seems to have no focus and is pretty pissed off.

He didn't seem to happy with Haye either.

Sounds like he had a difficult spar. That, Coldwell no longer training him, and playing second fiddle to the wbss, is more than enough to piss off a guy as moody as Chisora.

Maybe its Roid Rage ...Hope Joseph Parker demands Vada testing.

Anyways somebody should inform Chisora that his fight with Parker is
Hardly a superfight.

Fair play to Chisora he has made alot of money on the back of his "original nutta" gimmick.

Plus this whole myth of Chisora always being in thrilling fights....

His fights with Dillian Whyte were both thrilling as was his first fight with Fury. Majority of his fights have been dull to say the least Chisora just turning up and going through the motions.

He has provided alot more drama at his press conferences.

So he didn't hit her then.. Or do you know more then the judge now?

Chisora humiliated his gf physically and mentally, Jamie threatened his gf in a argument.

Big difference only one person who gets the woman beater tag though

Personally think it was all planned.

Chisora couldn’t care less about headlining a card, he was chief support to Dave Allen against Lucas Browne a few months ago.

Taylor & Prograis are two brilliant fighters but aren’t well known to the casuals & Parker didn’t turn up so how else could the press conference go viral?

Chisora’s sat up there with master salesmen Haye & Hearn & Haye’s old stable mate Josh Taylor is sat grinning. They were all in on it.

The only one who wasn’t was Prograis who probably wondered ‘what the fucks going off?’ & interrupted Chisora’s rant.

Del Boy is doing what Del Boy does.

Cant anybody remember his doing this before? He even tried getting a Rolex out of Hearn AFTER a fight once before.

Too much psycho analysing going on for me.

Fair enough. He is always on the hustle, and usually does alright out of it as well.

I do believe he has got some kind of issues going on, but I don't really care. It's not my problem, and it's not like he is alone in heavyweight boxing.

He would have been right at home with the 90's lot I reckon. Would also have had some fun fights.

I'm thinking this as well. But this is Chisora we're talking about, so who knows? :yep

The one thing I would say is that this card needs both fights to have any hope as a ppv.

The Taylor fight adds legitimacy while Chisora and Parker add name recognition and the appeal of the heavyweights.

Chisora however is unlikely to ever be a main event ppv fighter other than as the low b side to a bigger star.

Taylor, if he wins here, has the potential. Successful, exciting, and with a solid home support. It's very few uk fighters that unify belts or become the Ring champ. Fewer still that do it do quickly, or in such an exciting style. It's a big if though, Prograis, as we all know, is the real deal.

Why is Dereck Chisora PPV worthy at all? He's a B level fighter who's lost every big fight he's ever had bar the Helenius robbery a decade ago and that sloppy shitfest with druggy Whyte. He knocked out Artur Szpilka, EVERYBODY has knocked out Artur Spilka. Chisora is a workhorse but he is not PPV worthy, he has almost as many LEGIT losses as we can count on our fingers

Hopefully Parker beats him then its the last we see of the racist, woman beating arsehole
Jesus this fuckin cuck crybaby snowflake still going on? I don't remember ever giving Chisora a pass for being a woman beater, so you can count me out of your white mans persecution complex rants. Such an angry young man and VERY susceptible to propaganda like that 96,000 number you pulled out of your arse. I honesty wouldn't be surprised if you ended up radicalised, you are basically the poster boy for someone easily groomed by far right wing organisations. Remember when you claimed I hated Conor McGregor because he's "White and successful"? Have a fuckin look at yourself mate. Now you're also lying about the Jamie Cox case too, downplaying his behaviour, like I said before, you are very agenda driven so you project that onto everyone else
