im not sure if chisora vs artur is that far off, should chisora lose to haye (should they fight), or lose to vitali (in a rematch i doubt he'll get) again. chisora would need to restablish himself, and i doubt any of the other ring top 10 would fancy taking him on (some of them seem a tad reluctant at times, imo).
youre right about artur wanting the big fights, and i agree that it may be too soon for him to fight too big too soon. it would be a shame for him to waste his talent before it properly develops.
but it reminds of david price, the english heavyweight. who said something about how he didnt want to be just another victim for the k's, and had his own career to think about (in terms of saying that he wasnt ready for them just now, but would need 18 months or so to get ready).
both approaches seem a tad hasty, somewhere in the middle ground seems to be the right way to go about it
