“I am not stopping, not yet”: Heavyweight boxer Derek Chisora targets 50 fights milestone before retiring


Zimbabwe-born heavyweight boxer Derek Chisora has stated that he will retire from boxing when he gets to 50 fights.

The 39-year-old heavyweight veteran will turn 40 at the end of this year and is now facing calls to quit the sport.

On Saturday night, Chisora laboured to a win over America’s Gerald Washington.

This was his first fight back since his punishing trilogy defeat to Tyson Fury in December.

Many fans and pundits reacted by suggesting it is now time for Chisora to call it a day.

But in response, Chisora told iFL TV: “It’s not retirement yet.

not stopping, f*** off. Not yet, not yet. It’s not time yet…

“I’ve got three more fights, then I’m out. I want to get to 50.

“I do what the f*** I want because I’m WAR.”

Chisora’s win over Washington was his 47th professional bout.

He has now made it clear that, after three more contests, he will leave the sport for good.
