The title above this post is meant to highlight the decline and shame that people like Chisora, Haye and Warren are inflicting on boxing.
It was not my intention to watch the so called boxing match on Saturday night; I did not bother to check the pay per view cost as I did not consider any cost no matter how low as worth paying. 15 minutes before the start of the fight my daughter who knows I am a boxing fan came down stairs from her room where she had been watching TV and switched the TV we were watching to the live bout between Vitali Klitschko and Dereck Chisora while explaining that the pay per view system had malfunctioned and the bout was being shown free so, Paisley man that I am I watched it.
Had you asked me on Sat. Feb. 11, 2012; one week before the fight; who Dereck Chisora was I would have been unable to tell you; I humbly submit to you that as a quite keen boxing fan the fact that I had no idea who the 'contender' was for the heavy weight boxing championship of the world which was about to start gave me pause for thought. The thoughts going through my mind were of no great comfort to me as I watched him in his corner looking like a night club bouncer and a dead ringer for Charles Laughton as Quasi Modo in the "Hunchback of Notre Dame" The broadcaster had helpfully shown us his antics at the weigh in where; face covered in a mask he slapped Vitalo Klischko like a big girl whose makeup had been stolen, he then went on to spit in the face of Klitschko's brother Wladimir. I don't want to sound hysterical here because I have watched all kinds of shenanigans and stunts between competitors but he should be finished for this.
The parasites who are never far away from professional boxing like Frank Warren, will now try to get him back in the ring, no doubt hoping that this episode will sell more tickets and sadly he might just get away with that. In British heavyweight boxing at the moment there is no show without 'punch' or as he's known in the profession 'punch bag' David Haye. His humiliation against Wladimir Klitschko who used him like a sparring partner in their recent title fight and threw him around the ring like a rag doll when his fists got sore punching the back of his head as he ran away is back because he can smell money from a gullible public, this should not be allowed to happen! enough is enough.
Chisora who is 28 years old is being praised by some people who should know better for his showing against Vitali Klitschko who is 40 years old FFS and has not fought much since serious back surgery 2 years ago, Chisora took 1 round out of 12! As I said FFS! we laughed at stunts by Ali, Frazier, Foreman, Liston Etc. but this is not in the least bit funny, Chisora and Haye are embarrassing and people are paying to watch them, neither of them could fight sleep. John L Sullivan, Gentleman Jim Corbett, Bob Fitzimmons, Dempsey, Braddock, Jack Johnson, Joe Lewis, Marciano, Ali, Frazier, Tyson and the blameless Klitschko brothers who do what it says on the tin by beating everyone who gets put in front of them are being spat on by these bums and now it has come to this. Where is it going to end? not since the days of Primo Carnero "The Ambling Alp" and "Two Ton Tony Galento" whose catch phrase was "oil moider da bum" has heavyweight boxing sunk so low, is it time to pack it in I wonder? Or what would be more acceptable, is it not the time to say people like these and the others who are dragging the sport through the mud have had their day and kick them out once for all. Heavyweight Boxing has been around for hundreds of years graced by some of the names listed above, it would be a shame to allow a bunch of shysters and shake down artists like these people to drag it in to oblivion, can people like Warren, Haye and Chisora continue to bring shame on the sport that gave us Ali, Dempsey, Marciano and Joe lewis.
