He was a more entertaining fighter back then. The last clip makes him look like a bum.

No they pulled out if chisora (mismatch) for the haye fight (biggest hw fight in the last ten years).

Vitali fought chispra but by then he'd already been beaten by fury. Chisora was never a good fight to take, low risk low reward exactly the kinda fight the champ is receiving stick for now with wach and pianeta.

Not true. He pulled out in Dec 2010 a few days before the fight that was taking place in a sold out stadium. It was rescheduled for April 2011 and he pulled out again.

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.

Your personal opinion on the popularity of the fight has nothing to do with anything.
He ducked out of the fight and theres even a quote from Steward to prove it.
You're attempting to rewrite history in your defence.
Poor showing pencil top.

This isn't about personal opinion it's an incident that only happened a matter of months ago, dig up the threads from that time and see what the consensus was then.

I have nothing to defend, I wanted chisora to pull the upset but I preferred the haye fight to get done. Chisora got the easier option anyways for the same money.

I have no idea what you mean by pencil top, not something I've ever been called before.

Didn't really get handled. It was a pretty competitive fight with Fury rocked at one point.

It was a joke of an opponent for Wlad at that stage, however (pre-Haye).

Marciano wins by virtue of the fight being discussed.

Which narrows the divide more: Marciano artificially bulking up to over 200lbs to fight Wlad on his home turf, or Wlad coming into Marciano's backyard without the benefits of modern supplementation and a relatively scrawny 220lbs?

Wlad cannot beat Rock without any inside game and combination punching.
A 1-2 will not overcome a 4-5.
Rocky by knock out in the 4th.
End of debate. Thread closed.
