Chisora is ready for service


Dereck Chisora will build 150 hours of community service into his training as he bids to pull off the biggest upset in heavyweight boxing history.

The British champion (27) escaped a jail sentence in November for assaulting his former girlfriend. Instead he received a 12-week suspended sentence and community service.

The Zimbabwe-born boxer will carry out the punishment as he prepares for his on-off fight with Wladimir Klitschko in Germany on April 30.

Chisora, unbeaten in 14 bouts, said: “I’m the people’s champ, I don’t mind doing community service.

“I’m going to local boxing gyms, I’m going to old people’s homes, I’ve told them I’ll do anything. I think they shouldn’t send people to prison, people should give back to the community. It won’t faze me, I don’t complain, I don’t care what it is.”

Chisora feared his big chance had gone when IBF, WBO and IBO champion Klitschko withdrew four days before their original December 11 date with an abdominal tear.

The bout was resurrected after negotiations for a unification fight between the Klitschko camp and WBA king David Haye collapsed.
