Derek Chisora reveals shock choice as hardest puncher he's ever faced having fought Fury, Whyte, Usyk and Haye | The Sun

DEREK CHISORA has revealed the hardest-hitting heavyweight he has ever fought… and it's not who you would expect.

The 38-year-old has made a name for himself as a fighter who will take on all comers during his 15-year professional career.

He will take on Kubrat Pulev for a second time on Saturday night as he looks to avenge his 2016 loss to the Russian and end a run of three straight defeats.

Chisora has shared the ring with the likes of Vitali Klitschko, David Haye, Tyson Fury, Pulev, Dillian Whyte, Oleksandr Usyk and Joseph Parker.

But it is a much lesser known man who he has named as the hardest puncher he has faced.

When asked the question by talkSPORT, the Brit simply replied: "The Welsh Beef".

The man he was referring to was Welsh heavyweight Darren Morgan.

Chisora fought Morgan in just his third professional bout way back in 2007.

He claimed a four-round points victory over the Swansea-based fighter, but has now confirmed that he packed the biggest punch he has ever faced.

Morgan hung up his gloves back in 2014, finishing with a record of eight wins and five defeats – with six of his victories coming via knockout.

However, he could not knock out Chisora – something which the likes of Whyte and Haye managed with aplomb.

Fury also forced Del Boy to retire on his stool during their rematch back in 2014.

Meanwhile, Chisora, who has not won a fight since 2019, shut down talk of him retiring if he suffers defeat against Pulev on Saturday night.

But he did hint that he does not have long left.

He said: “Instead of going grey or silver in old age my beard is turning orange — maybe we will call it gold — but I am not going to dye it, f*** that.

“I don’t know how I will handle retirement. I’m not retiring but I am on my way out.
