Pictures from the Vitali Klitschko vs. Dereck Chisora Heavyweight Title Fight
On February 18th in Munich, Germany, Vitali Klitschko successfully defended his WBC heavyweight title strap against British challenger Dereck Chisora. The in-ring action was some of the best in a major heavyweight fight in quite some time, as Chisora proved to be a game challenger, aggressively pursuing Vitali all night long.
The out of the ring action generated the most buzz though. Right here, you can view a huge collection of Klitschko vs. Chisora pictures, including photos from their press conferences, weigh-ins, training sessions, and fight-night itself.
There were several controversial moments before and after the fight which generated so much buzz and attention. First, Chisora slapped Klitschko at their final weigh-in, which you can see in the pictures above. Then, Chisora spat water in Wladimir Klitschko’s face on his way into the ring before the fight.
Finally, after the fight, Chisora and David Haye got into a brawl which led to Chisora’s arrest. All of that took away from what was actually a very nice showing from Del Boy, and with the dozens of Klitschko-Chisora photos above, you can relive all of that controversy, action and craziness.
In the fight itself, Klitshcko was forced to work harder than he has had to since his fight against Lennox Lewis. The heavyweight champion found a home for his big right hand, but Chisora was able to take the shots and keep on coming in. Chisora did some excellent body work which slowed Vitali down, and he stayed in his chest all night long.
