Chisora showed against his much tougher brother that he would of given him hell and would of been his hardeset fight in a long time. A lot more of a handfull than Haye was.

Win or lose isn't the point, the point is they didn't take the risk. They carefully select opponents who they know are unwilling to to dig deep and take some to land some. Chisora didn't tick those boxes.

A lot of people were excited about the fight at the time ,including myself and Sky gave it plenty of coverage.
what a load of ****e.

Chisora was seen as a cherry pick. Sky gave it coverage because chisora is British and wlad is a world champion. I wanted chisora to win because he is British and a heavy underdog but noone considered it a risky fight. It was seen as an obstacle to the haye fight at the time.
