Derek Chisora has revealed the hardest puncher he has faced throughout his long, rollercoaster career in the heavyweight division.
‘Del Boy’ has shared the ring with the likes of David Haye, Vitali Klitschko, Oleksandr Usyk and of course recently – for a third time – Tyson Fury.
However, none of the aforementioned were bestowed the accolade from the enigmatic Chisora of possessing the fiercest punch he’s ever absorbed.
The 37 year old stated in a recent Talksport interview that unheralded Welsh heavyweight Darren Morgan, aka “Welsh Beef,” hit him harder than any other man he locked horns with.
Chisora faced Morgan in just his third professional bout, all the way back in 2007, emerging with a unanimous decision win after the four round affair.
Although the Zimbabwe born slugger did not touch the canvas that night, he still maintains that Morgan struck him harder than any of the fighters who did manage to knock him down later in his career.
Flash forward to the present day, and Chisora has not been in action since his gruelling trilogy fight with Fury last December, where he took a hellacious beating for ten rounds before referee Victor Loughlin put him out of his misery.
Despite widespread calls for his retirement, Chisora maintains he intends to fight on, although there are yet to be any concrete reports as to whom his next opponent could be.
‘War’ donned his promoter hat last month, as he helped to push Jake Paul’s fight with Tommy Fury in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia – even hosting a press conference.
For the good of his health, Chisora would be perhaps best sticking to using his out-of-ring talents, however this seems like wishful thinking.
