Rumors in the UK are flying that Dereck Chisora is about to fight his last bout for promoter Frank Warren, with Matchroom hyping a "major signing" to come on Tuesday in London.
Earlier today, the EPIX Sports Twitter account had this:
"Chisora is the most combustible and fascinating characters in boxing. Deeply prideful, prone to poor decision making, talented and troubled. He arrived at the weigh in muttering to himself. 'Let's weigh in and get the hell out of here, I'm pissed off,' he said. It appeared he was not pleased with something promoter Frank Warren may or may not have done. (Chisora) told (Mike Woods) that he is on a fight to fight contract with Warren and this may be it for him and Frank."
Chisora (15-4, 9 KO) has lost his last four meaningful fights, but many felt he deserved the decision in Finland against Robert Helenius back in December 2011, and he gave Vitali Klitschko a better fight than anyone else has since Vitali returned to the sport in 2008.
He's an enigmatic character, a volatile sort that attracts attention. What he may lack in potential to be a true world class heavyweight, he can make up for with an ability to sell a fight, which makes him a valuable commodity for promoters.
Chisora faces 38-year-old Argentinean Hector Alfredo Avila tomorrow in London.
