Dereck Chisora Preview – Can Del Boy snap his slump?

Dereck Chisora is back in action for the first time since his loss to Joseph Parker in December last year.

That was the third straight fight that Chisora has lost.

Those were all shots at heavyweight titles as well.

For boxing betting odds on Saturday, Chisora is 2/1 underdog in the outright* (odds recorded 21:51 GMT on July 7th, 2022).

The career record of Chisora stands at 32-12-0 now.

The defeats have been getting more and more frequent, with four of them in his last seven bouts.

Six of his twelve career losses have come inside his most recent 13 fights.

Del Boy is now surely creeping towards the end of his long career. Listening to him, however, he seems keen to keep cashing the cheques.

This won’t be his first bout against Pulev.

Our betting prediction:
Pulev Rounds 7-12

* (odds recorded 21:51 GMT on July 7th, 2022)


Chisora met Pulev back in 2016 for the then-vacant European heavyweight title.

Pulev won the fight on a split decision after going the distance in Germany.

It was a tight fight to be fair.

The worrying thing for Chisora currently, was how badly he struggled in his rematch against Joseph Parker in December.

After the first fight between them six months prior had been lost on a split decision, Chisora was sorely outboxed in the rematch.

Chisora was put down three times in the bout and lost heavily on the scoreboard despite sticking out the distance.

There is a quote of 5/6 odds in boxing betting for Chisora v Pulev to go the distance* (odds recorded 21:51 GMT on July 7th, 2022)

It looks like a reasonable prospect.

Kubrat Pulev Preview – Powerhouse Pulev still in form

41-year-old Kubrat Pulev still seems to be going strong, although his best days are clearly behind him.

He was last in action in May when he beat Henry Forrest by a unanimous decision.

That was little more than a fitness exercise for the Bulgarian ahead of this.

Pulev had not been in the ring since losing a title shot against Anthony Joshua in 2020.

In the match outright for boxing betting, the win for Pulev is at 4/11 odds-on* (odds recorded 21:51 GMT on July 7th, 2022).

It has been a long career for Pulev and along the way he has had only a few shots at the top.

Pulev has ultimately come up short most of the time.

His really big career moment was taking on Joshua, but he was knocked out in the ninth round.

Pulev’s career record is 29-2.

Kubrat Pulev and Chisora butted heads at a press conference on Thursday, the two grappling with each other.

So there is a bit of spark in this one which should lead to an interesting contest.

It’s just hard to see either of these fighters walking away having secured a stoppage.

But if it happens, the more likely of the two to get it is Pulev. He is technically stronger.

Therefore, the Pulev Round 7-12 range piques interest in boxing betting for Saturday’s clash* (odds recorded 21:51 GMT on July 7th, 2022).


Dereck Chisora vs Kubrat Pulev Betting Advice

Dereck “War” Chisora is back in the mix again, although this is not a title shot and it’s unlikely that either will see one of those again.

Chisora surely needs a win here to get any sort of credibility back on his side after three straight defeats.

But that is easier said than done. He was badly undone by Joseph Parker last time out.

In our opinion, he gives up the technical ability edge to his rival in the ring on Saturday.

  • Dereck Chisora has lost his last three fights
