In a lengthy caption, the British heavyweight boxer revealed how he began his journey with David Haye, thereby evolving as a fighter. He even demeaned his last two fight’s outcomes and tagged them as robberies. That said, the 37-year-old seems interested to have a couple of fights in 2021.

As a professional, Chisora’s 37-11-0 record may not look very impressive. However, he is one of the best punchers in the division and can rightly enter the championship ride.
