Moreover, this was Chisora’s first victory since 2019, but he was not fully satisfied with it, as he called out fellow heavyweight boxer Deontay Wilder after the fight.

However, it seems like Wilder’s co-manager, Shelly Finkel, isn’t too eager about making this fight as he came out and dismissed the British boxer’s proposition.

Fans react to Finkel’s comments

Fans took to Twitter and reacted to Finkel’s comments and praised him for dismissing this potential fight as one fan stated that Chisora should stay in the UK and Wilder should face the winner of the Joshua vs Usyk rematch.

He wrote, “No one would want to see that. Chisora should stay in the UK and eat burgers there. Wilder should be given the chance to fight Joshua vs Usyk winner.”

Moreover, another fan stated that anyone who doubted Wilder after the Fury fight was a “casual” and that he would “blast” Chisora. He wrote, “Anyone who doubts Wilder after the trilogy with Fury is a causal. He may not be the most technically astute boxer, but the man has power, grit, and a chin. For me he blasts Chisora into a hospital early doors.”

However, some fans even went as far as claiming that Finkel saved Chisora’s life by not letting him move further with the fight as one fan stated that Finkel gave him life. He wrote, “Finkel said give him life instead of a death sentence.”

Moreover, another fan stated that Finkel prevented this fight because he did not want Wilder to have a murder case against him. He wrote, “Wilder’s manager doesn’t want his fighter to have a murder case next to his record,”

Furthermore, another fan directly stated that Finkel saved Chisora’s life. He wrote, “Saved Chisora life by saying no.”
