WAR needs to win
Despite being ranked the fifth best heavyweight in the UK and ninth in the world, the 38-year-old Chisora enters this bout with a loss of form that has seen him winless in three bouts.
That barren spell can be traced back to a memorable fourth-round TKO win over David Price in Greenwich, a result that helped the beaten man retire.

Cobra is ready to attack
Fans are obsessing over Chisoro’s recent form and the pressure is on the Englishman to get back to winning ways in time. This allowed Kubrat Pulev to prepare without the media circus that often accompanies a bout of this magnitude.
Chisora and Pulev have met once before with the Bulgarian coming out on top in 2016 at a show in Hamburg, Germany, thanks to a controversial split decision. Many believed the Englishman deserved the win that night, but the judges overruled him and returned the scores 112-116, 115-113, 110-118.
The first meeting between these fighters put the score judges around the apron under the spotlight, and with each of Chisora’s last three going 12 rounds, we’re sure it’s going to be another long night. Chisora and Pulev are as experienced as they come and won’t be rushing to attack early; they will stay patient and work their way into the competition.
There will be many casual boxing fans looking for a devastating KO showreel in this fight, but they will likely end up disappointed.
