Derek Chisora was unhappy with Alan Brazil’s remark about Anthony Joshua’s chin on talkSPORT on Thursday.
The world heavyweight title challenger joined Brazil’s Breakfast to preempt Tyson Fury against Dillian Whyte, which is live on talkSPORT on Saturday night.
Chisora boldly declared he would bet his house on Whyte winning by knockout, raising eyebrows in the studio.
And the conference also focused on the punch resistance of today’s top heavyweights.
talkSPORT host Brazil began: “If we go back to AJ against Dillian, remember in that fight he rocked AJ.
“I thought he was going to beat him and AJ came back, but he doesn’t have an AJ chin, like Tyson has.”
Chisora laughed at that and replied, “Sorry man, AJ is my friend, you can’t say things like that.”
Brazil replied: “But he’s having a hard time, isn’t he?”
To which Chisora replied, “No, when you say he doesn’t have a chin, what does that mean he doesn’t have a chin?”
“You have to correct yourself on that.”
Brazil remained firm: “Well, let me say that I think Fury’s chin is stronger than AJ’s.”
And Chisora said, “But they were both on the floor, you know?
“They were on the ground, they came back from the ground and they won the fights.
“So I don’t understand when you say things like he doesn’t have a chin.”
Brazil did it again: “Well, I think…”
But Chisora interrupted him, “Don’t think so.
And Brazil continued: “No, no, I think if Dillian hits Fury, Fury will get back up.”
In the end, the pair had to agree to disagree on the issue.
