Despite yesterday's slap at the weigh-in, odds have not improved for Dereck Chisora, as he prepares to face Vitali Klitschko for the WBC heavyweight title in Munich, Germany.
Klitschko (43-2, 40 KO) is a big-time favorite to retain over Chisora (15-2, 9 KO), the arrogant and brash challenger, expected to be short on...well, most things, frankly.
At 40, Klitschko has been dominant for years now, and has faced almost no resistance at all since his 2008 comeback. Chisora had his best fight last time out in December, but was robbed on the scorecards in Finland against Robert Helenius.
A good fight is expected by -- well not many, perhaps, but more than usually expect a "good fight" when the Klitschkos climb into the squared circle. Chisora, 28, is a gutsy fighter who does come to fight when he's in shape, and he's in shape this time.
