Vitali Klitschko to Fight Chisora in February and Haye in JuneWritten by James E. King III
After dropping a controversial decision to undefeated European Champ Robert Helenius on December 3rd, it seems that Derek Chisora's brave performance is not going unrecognized.
Vitali Klitschko (43-2, 40 KO) is more than likely going to reward Del Boy's heralded effort against the Nordic Nightmare by granting the former British Commonwealth Champion a shot at the coveted WBC Heavyweight title on February 18th, 2012.
K2 Promotions has booked the Olympic Hall in Munich, Germany, for the above mentioned date and hopes to produce a sold out show in the historic 13,000 seat venue.
The prospective site was originally constructed for the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, which saw Cuban legend Heavyweight Teofilo Stevenson win a Gold Medal against Romanian Ion Alexe.
Klitschko has won an impressive 8 consecutive bouts since making his return to the ring on October 11th, 2008, when he defeated Nigerian Sam Peter to win the WBC Heavyweight Championship.
The alleged tougher Klitschko brother was last seen stopping former two division champion Tomasz Adamek in Wroclaw, Poland, on September 10th of this year.
To the dismay of most boxing scribes, it's believed that the current WBC Heavyweight Champion is favoring a projected June bout with former Cruiserweight Champ David Haye (25-2, 23 KO). The vociferous Brit would be walking into a title shot despite losing his last bout to little brother and universally recognized Heavyweight Champion, Wladimir Klitschko.
Whatever the 40 year old champ decides, the eyes of the boxing world will be focused on what could be Vitali Klitschko's final two fights.
