Deontay Wilder Should Accept The Challenge From Derek Chisora

Boxing is a sport where fans become prisoners of the moment. Often an underdog wins a fight they were supposed to lose and looks to capitalize on their newfound glory. That is not the case when it comes to Derek “War” Chisora (33-12, 23KO) calling out former WBC heavyweight champion Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder (42-2-1, 41KO).

After defeating rival Kubrat Pulev in the rematch, Chisora sent social media into a frenzy by calling out The Bronze Bomber.

“I don’t have many left. So my next couple of fights, I’m on my way out. I don’t want no easy fights, I want the hard fights. I told Eddie (Hearn) the other day, if he can get me what you call The Bronze Bomber, I’ll be happy.”

This is not the first time the ageless wonder has called for a fight with Wilder. In February, Chisora was pushing for a dust-up with the former champion in America if possible. So hearing him say it live with all the world watching should not be a surprise.


Things have been quiet on what is going to be next for Wilder. Since losing the trilogy to retired WBC champion Tyson Fury, his social media accounts show no indication of when or if he is coming back to the sport. He once talked about seeking some kind of spiritual, psychedelic plant to help decide whether or not to continue fighting. However, if Wilder is thinking of returning to the sport, he should seriously consider accepting Chisora’s challenge.

Still ranked #1 by the WBC, Wilder remains within an eyeshot of battling for the title. But, while Fury continues to tell fans he is retired, and until unified champion the Oleksandr Usyk versus Anthony Joshua rematch is settled, this is the perfect opportunity for Wilder to re-introduce himself back to the fans.

Chisora’s a tough-as-nails fighter whose name still has value and hasn’t been stopped since the Dillian Whyte fight back in 2018. Wilder could make a statement with a knockout stoppage and possibly send Chisora into retirement afterward.

Providing there is still some fire in the belly to fight, team Wilder needs to get on the phone and make the fight with Chisora next.
