Vitali Klitschko vs. Dereck Chisora: 5 Next Possible Opponents for Klitschko

On Saturday, February 18, Vitali Klitschko and Dereck Chisora fought for Klitschko's WBC heavyweight championship in front of a packed crowd in Munich, Germany. It was an exciting fight, with the challenger Chisora fighting aggressively and pressing the action, forcing the 40-year-old Klitschko to brawl and exchange.

For reasons I will never understand, it was not broadcast in the United States. This is a tremendous loss for American boxing fans, who missed not only an extremely relevant fight in the heavyweight division, but an exciting one as well.

By now, you can find various German and Russian language uploads on YouTube.

Klitschko, as usual, looked like a nimble giant, using his reach and footwork to steadily pound the always-pressing-forward Chisora. He never really seemed in danger of losing. In what is now developing as among the most dominant heavyweight careers of all time, he once more barely lost a round. 

At 40 years old, the elder Klitschko brother is quite likely reaching the end of his career. If he does want to fight again, potentially interesting opponents are in short supply.
