Dereck Chisora will have about a 40-pound weight advantage on Saturday when he faces David Haye at Upton Park in West Ham, London. The two brash heavyweights took to the scales today, with Haye coming in at 210 pounds to Chisora's 247.
[ Fight Preview: Haye vs Chisora ]
For Haye, the weight is consistent with his last two outings. He weighed in at 210½ for his win over Audley Harrison and his loss to Wladimir Klitschko, coming down from previous weights of 215, 217, and 222 against Monte Barrett, Nikolai Valuev, and John Ruiz, respectively.
Chisora's weight isn't far off from his usual, either. He weighed in at 241¼ for his February loss to Vitali Klitschko, and was 243 in December against Robert Helenius. The extra few pounds are certainly not likely to make the sort of difference that we saw in Chisora when he came in at 261 pounds last year in a loss to Tyson Fury.
Do you think the major weight advantage will be a key for Chisora in this fight, or will it just not matter as much as skill and the style matchup?
