By Gari Jones (boxingnews24.com): So the fight is all set and Derek Chisora will be allowed to take his chance at the IBF, WBO and IBO World Heavyweight Champion. After being spared jail for an assault on his girlfriend Derek Chisora gets the opportunity of a lifetime in his relatively short career at the No.1 Undisputed Heavyweight Champion Wladimir Klitschko.

It's fair to say that Chisora (W14, (KO9) L0, D0) has managed to jump the gun a bit when he faces off against Wladimir Klitschko (W55, (KO49), L3, D0), having only recently won the BBBofC British Heavyweight Title and the Commonwealth (British Empire) Heavyweight Title, he's skipped fighting most of the domestic scene and totally by past the European level of heavyweight boxing, which would quite easily suggest that Derek will be severely outclassed come fight night.

Compare Derek to Wladimir and its hard to find anything Derek can match up to him on, Derek's (14) Pro fights compared to Wladimir who's fought (55) times, Derek boast a record of (9) KO's thats nothing compared to Wladimir who has (49) Stoppages on his fight record (84.48% of KO), Derek stands at 6ft 1.5 "tall and Wladimir stands at a cool 6ft 6.5"tall, five more inches in height taller, Derek has a reach of 74" and Wladimir has a reach of 81" which means come fight night he'll be eating a shed load of Dr Steel Hammers Jabs.

So what tale of the tape advantages does Chisora have over Wladimir, the weight advantage is not in question as both fighters come into their fights at around the 240lb-245lb mark, well let's look at age Derek is 26 yrs old compared to Wladimir whose 34yrs old, so youth is Derek's side and only having only fought (14) times, so there's less wear and tear on Chisora's body meaning he should be able to absorb more damage (unlike someone like Briggs who just looked tired and worn-out a shadow of his former self, and looked a bloody mess after Vitali finished with him), However I don't see that being much of an advantage seeing as Wladamir has never been badly hurt through a great many of his fights. Wladimir has suffered (3) losses, Derek has the proud achievement right now of never losing a fight, but I guess very much that will change on December 11th 2010.

So how does a Chisora beat a man with four times the amount of fights he has and has been defending champion since 2006,? The only way I can see this happening is if Chisora gets in close and upsets Wladimir's rhythm, there's no way Chiosra can just sit back and allow Wladimir to pick him off at distance, having shown in the past Wladimir's jabs have some power behind and if one lands cleanly enough it can feel more like hook than a jab.

By getting in close and taking the fight to the Ukrainian, Derek stand's a much better chance of hurting Wladimir by working to the body and to try coming up for an uppercut or land a tasty shot on Wladimir's. The only weakness that Wladimir has is he has a suspect chin that when caught has meant him losing the fight (Ross Purrity 1998, Corrie Sanders 2003 and Lamon Brewster 2004) have all managed to KO Wladimir in such a way.

However the realistic outcome of this fight in my eyes will be an easy victory for Wladimir as Chisora just does not have enough experience, the mentality and the physical side of his game is still developing. However while Audley Harrison will no longer get another title shot, a loss for Chisora won't be too damaging as he is still young and can go on to rise in the rankings long after this fight with Wladimir.
