Prediction.

Chisora has been in a lot more damaging fights, but he didn't take as much damage in any of those fights as Pulev took in both his losses, Pulev is older, and Chisora has been more active in the last few years. Both fighters are slightly past their prime, the difference is, Chisora improved after the first fight, but I'm surprised it was a split decision, Pulev seemed to win at least fairly wide. These guys have very different styles, there is no comparison for fundamentals, Chisora doesn't have much of a jab, Pulev has a great jab, and on the outside, he's likely to beat Chisora to the right hand, but there's no comparison for body punching, Chisora is a better pressure fighter, has much better variety, and is a much better inside fighter. Either fighter could have got old overnight, Chisora might be more likely to, based on Pulev coming off a good win, and Chisora coming off a damaging loss.

I think Chisora will swarm Pulev in the early rounds, will struggle for accuracy, but Pulev won't be able to establish his jab, I think Pulev will get his jab off more often as the rounds go on, but he will struggle to time Chisora's head movement, won't be able to match Chisora's tempo, and Chisora will be more varied as the rounds go on, will attack the body when he can step into range, Pulev will briefly pick Chisora off at long range, but it will always be 1 shot at a time, he won't be able to deter Chisora at all, Chisora will slow down in the late rounds, but only from his own pace, and Pulev won't have it in the tank to take advantage.

My prediction is Chisora by a wide UD, I'm fairly confident in that prediction, if neither fighter has got old overnight, and both can still take the power well, I'd be surprised if Chisora stopped him, but I'd be surprised if Pulev won.

First impressions...

This fight was very entertaining, even if both fighters were past their primes. Chisora is six years removed from his prime, took a lot more beating in his career than Pulev, but he continued working on himself, making necessary adjustments, compromising his fighting style, testing himself and gaining valuable experience against world class opposition. Pulev, who is also 6-7 years removed from his prime, on the other hand aged a lot more badly, his legs and head movement are almost gone, he is a lot slower than six years ago, he did not compromise his fighting style, with the exception of AJ he was only fighting low-risk opponents, and this lack of quality opposition only contributed into lack of reinvention as his fading skills did not require significant change to comfortably beat those guys.

I think Pulev should retire, at this stage of his life it's too late for reinvention, his muscle memory has deteriorated way too much and probably won't improve at 41 years of age. He didn't have a bad career, his arguably best wins were against Dimitrenko and Tony Thompson, he is a national hero in Bulgaria and his fight against Wlad was a worldwide spectacle, but I still can't help but feel he underachieved, his resume contains a fairly big number of fringe contenders (Dimitrenko, Chisora, Tony Thompson, Hughie Fury) but zero actually highly-regarded contenders for the heavyweight throne.

I was surprised Pulev did so much offensively against Chisora, I expected Chisora to beat him at least fairly comfortably, but this was a very close fight, I'm surprised Pulev was able to hurt Chisora. Chisora did great work to the body, but I was surprised how well Pulev held up down the stretch, because he took a lot of hard, clean body shots in the early rounds, and Chisora was still landing body shots in the second half. Pulev was wise to focus on the right uppercut after Chisora's last fight, he had a higher output than usual, even with his age, he was conservative by throwing a lot of shots that were unlikely to hurt Chisora, but Chisora's head movement was very good. Chisora is had his usual, erratic game plan, worked extremely hard to put his opponent under pressure, and had to ease up in the mid rounds, he is an unusual ability to not be vulnerable on the ropes, he uses his experience. Pulev got caught as Chisora swung off the ropes, because he fought more aggressively than he has in the past, as his best defence is always his opponent having to reach and him just inching back slightly, but with him focusing more on power shots and less on the jab than usual, Chisora was more accurate off the ropes. This was a more entertaining fight than I expected, rounds 8 and 9 were great.

I really like Chisora and it was a competative fight, but I felt Pulev won this pretty clearly. It was a hometown decision. David Haye’s commentary was terrible. Chisora did have his moments but overall Pulev did the better work and outworked Chisora.

I think many people scored this fight with their hearts.
