Vitali up for Chisora rematch but Boente won't let him

WBC Heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko has declared that he wants to get back in the ring with Dereck Chisora so that he can punish him for his recent poor behaviour.

Klitschko won Saturday's bout in Munich by a wide margin, but has stated that he would like to punish his opponent if he is once again matched with the Brit.


"In spirit, I have no need for revenge, but my ego tells me that this man deserves real punishment. I want to knock him out in the ring," he told German paper Die Welt.

However, the fighters manager Bernd Boente has declared that there is no possibility that a rematch will happen. 

Boente, the subject of much disappointment to David Haye's manager Adam Booth, stated: "A rematch is absolutely inconceivable and won't happen. Of course, Vitali has been affected emotionally, but a fight is not up for discussion and we will not offer Chisora a further platform."
Chisora clashed with David Haye in front of media from around the globe, with the unsavoury incident generating the wrong kind of headlines. 

Despite bookmakers favouring a fight between the two Brits Haye and Chisora, there is now speculation that Haye will indeed face Vitali, as the former WBA champion has stated that he would only come out of retirement to face one of the Klitschko brothers.

Crolla V Murray

A lot of people consider the lightweight bout taking place in Manchester this weekend between Anthony Crolla (27-4-1) and John Murray (32-2) to be a very close call indeed. The contest, in UK's second biggest city on Easter Weekend, is for the WBO lightweight Inter-continental title, but the significance of the result means more than the marginal title as it will put them a step closer to a world title fight. Even if this isn't immediately forthcoming, the division is stacked in Britain, and can throw up some massive domestic scraps.

Last Friday at the Camden Centre, Morden super featherweight Craig Whyatt (7-1) liquidated Plymouth’s Ben Morrish (3-8-2) in the first round to bag the Masters Bronze super featherweight belt. This was scheduled for eight, but when Morrish tried to turn it into a brawl he quickly came off second best after Jeff Hinds halted proceedings following his third knockdown.
