“It ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.” Chisora has taken this statement by Rocky Balboa seriously. And he is training his physique to absorb some of the heaviest shots. Meanwhile, he is also calling out Oleksandr Usyk in the most hilarious ways possible.

Dereck Chisora is ready for war!

The British heavyweight has turned to social media and has posted a clip from his gym. In the video, David Haye has laced up his boxing gloves to offer a hard time to Chisora. However, it didn’t seem to be a tough time for ‘War.’

Chisora constantly sported a smile on his face while calling out Usyk. In the meantime, Haye landed some of the most lethal shots on his body. If landed with full force, these shots can do significant damage to one’s health. That said, Chisora took all of them like a pie.

“Hello! Hello! Let’s go, man, let’s go. Hello Usyk,” shouted Chisora.

The pair will fight each other in December. However, the date is still not final. Earlier, they were slated to fight in May, but COVID-19 put a halt on those plans.
