Default Do they need Derek Chisora?

Does Helenius need him for redemption?

Does Price need him to have a complete body of work?

Does Wlad need him for anything?

How important is he to British and broader boxing?

Do you miss him?

Yes, in my opinion. He has a fan friendly style, generally features in good fights and has a lot more to offer.

Chisora will be back and I think he still has a future. He fought 3 top fighters in a row and also David Haye. Haye was fresh coming off of another one of his year long vacations.

Dereck is my favorite UK heavyweight. He's a true old school tough guy. G all the way.

Chisora still beats Boytsov,Povetkin and yes he already beat that boring Fin Helenius.

Chisora is a legend and a G. I hope he comes back soon. The guy knows how to hype a fight and he's never boring.

Helenius needs him the most.

Price sure could use him, but Fury will suit his purposes as well in a pinch.

Wladimir can take or leave him, depending on how mad he is about the spit-take.

He is great for boxing. Colorful personality and exciting style.

Say what you want about Chisora but his fearless attitude is very good for the hw division, which is populated by chickens

He is a scumbag and he is gonna end up in prison. He is lucky David Haye or Tyson Fury didn't kill him they only beat him up really bad. David Price is gonna brutally knock him out . Chisora is a good journeyman punchingbag gatekeeper thats about it.

Chisora is the opposite he has never beaten anyone worth a damn in his career, but he keeps getting big fights because of his big mouth. He keeps getting dominated then thrown into big fights.

He may be an opponent for Price in February, i doubt it though he could use a couple tune up fights first. By the way he hasn't retired there is nothing on his twitter and hes on it all the time hes still training.

Chisora is a tough, aggressive B+ -level fighter.

He makes a great gatekeeper, a test for the true elite fighters, and he will likely never be in a boring fight.

So yes, everyone needs him, including the fans & the networks.

Same goes for Chris Arreola.

Surprised no brittard has said Wlad needs to face him after ducking him twice because the slightest head movement will get Wlad KO'd?
