The heavyweights meet this Saturday on DAZN.
Heavyweight Senad Gashi is set to face Dereck Chisora this Saturday in London, which will stream live on DAZN, and the 28-year-old underdog isn’t worried about Chisora changing much working with new trainer Dave Coldwell.
In short, he doesn’t believe the 35-year-old Chisora can change much.
“Dereck Chisora is an old dog and it’s hard to teach an old dog new tricks,” said Gashi. “Dereck is a very experienced guy, he doesn’t have a boxing brain but his toughness and experience makes up for that. What I will say is he looks like he’s in the best shape of his life.
“We are two very different fighters but what we both share is lots of heart. We are both warriors deep down and I predict that this will be a fight that people will talk about for a very long time. He calls himself ‘WAR’ Chisora and it’s a war he’s going to get. People will love this fight.”
Gashi (17-2, 17 KO) is originally from Kosovo, and has fought much of his pro career in Germany, with 14 of his 19 pro fights taking place in that country. Last time out, he was a short notice opponent for Carlos Takam in December on the Whyte-Chisora II undercard.
Takam stopped Gashi in the seventh round, but he feels with better preparation, he’ll be able to give fans a better showing this time out.
“I had just three days’ notice for my fight with Takam. If I’d have had a full training camp I am confident I would have beaten him,” Gashi said. “I was fighting from instinct and my stamina wasn’t there. In the end I gassed out and you all saw what happened. I came to the fight without a coach and I decided my strategy 20 minutes before the fight started.
“I’ve had a full training camp this time and I’ve done my homework. I’m prepared and ready to get the win. I watch the round Whyte KO’d Chisora every day. I know that I’m able to give any fighter on the planet a hard night and I’ll show everyone the real Senad Gashi on April 20.”
