Derek Chisora has been around for a long time and has fought many of the top heavyweights of the past few decades.
Since his boxing debut in 2007, ‘Del Boy’ has been knocked out by a superb left hook from Dillian Whyte, he was taken out of his corner after being beaten by Tyson Fury and tasted the infamous ‘Hayemakers’ when he was stopped by David Haye in their grudge match.
London-based Chisora even went the distance with ‘Dr Ironfist’ himself, Vitali Klitschko, and he reached the final bell twice against another former world champion in Joseph Parker.
However, none of these heavyweight giants hold the title of toughest puncher they have ever faced and, when asked by talkSPORT who it was, he simply replied, “Welsh beef “.
Chisora was referring to the relatively unknown Darren Morgan.
In his third professional bout, in October 2007, he faced Morgan in a four-round bout at York Hall, winning each to emerge victorious on points.
‘Del Boy’ was never knocked down by Morgan but he insisted he was the toughest puncher he had ever met.
Morgan is a 6ft 1in heavyweight from Swansea and set an 8-5 record, with 6 knockouts, before retiring in 2014 having never been stopped in the ring.

Chisora then gave talkSPORT his prediction for the Whyte vs Fury fight, making a £100 bet with presenter Simon Jordan.

“It sounds like it shocks you, but really and truly it doesn’t.
“I’m ready to put my house on this: I’m ready to put my house on Dillian Whyte knocking out Tyson Fury.”
