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.

Simon Barclay speaks to BoxRec News from Klitschko's Champ Camp

Heavyweight world champion Wladimir Klitschko is preparing to face Australian Alex Leapai on 26th April and as usual he has chosen the familiar surroundings of the Austrian Alps. Just hours after winning his professional debut at the Copper Box in London, 24-year old Corby cruiserweight Simon Barclay was on a plane to join up with him in what the Ukrainian calls 'Champ Camp'.

Brentwood’s ‘Smokin’ Joe Mullender (6-1) got back on track with a close points win over Peckham’s Diego Burton (4-4-1) over ten rounds at the York Hall on Saturday. It was a belter of a fight on a slightly smaller than usual Goodwin bill, partly due to 'Flash' Ashley Sexton not making weight again (more on this later) and 'Big Dog' AJ Carter’s opponent, who reportedly turned up with Evo-Stick holding his mooey in place.
