    Yes Chisora is being disrespectful. That was uncalled for. He could have found a meaningful way to voice his dissent with Hearn without attacking Prograis like that.

    Wow, Chisora is soooo tough and badass for threatening a guy less than half his size.

    At least Prograis doesn't get his ass kicked every time he fights someone world level.

    Thing is, Chisora was making his point and Prograis tuned in. This wasn't about Prograis or Taylor really. This was between Chisora and Hearn / Sauerland. Prograis should've just kept his mouth shut. I met Chisora in person once, he was polite an quiet, nearly timid if I may say so. A classy gentleman. He used that press conference as a panel to voice his issues because that's probably the only stage he can get to adress them. I don't believe he can just pick up the phone and talk to Hearn the old school way - if he could have, he would've done it. It doesn't work like that anymore with most promoters. Why are so many fighters venting off on social media? Cause they don't have another platform. Chisora used this opportunity, probably the only one he had.

    And Chisora is right. Hearn put him on the show because he knew Taylor and Prograis wouldn't sell the O2 Arena. Great fight on paper but it just doesn't sell. Like it or not, but that's a fact. Hearn and Sauerland are the first to know that. They still wanted that big stage for their final, so they turned to Chisora. They need a guy like Chisora. Say about Chisora what you want, but he brings the action, win or lose. And he's the one selling the tickets. Prograis and Taylor wouldn't even be fighting at the O2 in London without Chisora.

    So they should pay Chisora his due. The guy gives his all on undercards and he gets no respect. I understand he's fed up. I'm not saying Prograis-Taylor shouldn't be the main event - it's a world title unification after all. But they should aknowledge that Chisora is the true 'star' of this show.

    Chisora has never won a world title yet criticises boxers who are title holders, another disrespectful trash talker, i know this type of talk allegedly is done to sell fights but for me it bores me senseless.

    Chisora you have lost 9 of 31 bouts, that makes you more of a chump than a champ.

    I enjoy watching Chisora give his all in the squared circle, just please do your talking with your fists on fight night only.

    An easy indication to see if a fighter carries the headline are the odds in their favor or being an underdog.

    As of recent years, Khan has always headlined with Bill Dib, Vargas, Algieri, Phil Lo Greco (and in between were the fights with Canelo, Crawford which you seem to focus on).

    As for Broner, he has headlined for at least 5-6 years now with with inferior opposition except of course Pacquiao, Mickey, Porter.

    Nobody really cares about Chisora, fun to watch because he creates a slugfest. Other than that he never has and never will be taken seriously for titles in a division with no stand out fighters.
