Video: ‘Del Boy’ Chisora, a Reliant Regal (Robin) of Only Fools and Horses fame and Vitali Klitschko

A growing heavyweight attraction due to his headline-hogging promotional capers, Dereck Chisora, who gets his Del Boy nickname from the affable protagonist Del Boy Derek Trotter in the hit British sitcom Only Fools and Horses, turned up to a London press conference to meet Vitali Klitschko in the motor that is almost as iconic as the cult TV program – the Reliant Regal Supervan (aka Robin Reliant). Chisora challenges Klitschko for the WBC heavyweight championship on February 18 at the Olympiahalle in Munich, Germany.

The acronym of Trotters Independent Trading was intentional…

Only Fools and Horses has not only had an influence on Chisora’s boxing career but also in his business affairs as, when setting up Dereck’s Association of Finchley Traders (DAFT*) – a supplier of high-end automotive vehicles – he clearly had TIT (see picture above) in mind.

Chisora went 1-2-0, 0ko last year yet, despite the official records, he enjoyed a breakout year. The Londoner bounced back from losing his British and Commonwealth heavyweight titles to Tyson Fury in a fan-friendly brawl by decisioning Remigijus Ziausys over six threes. In December, he challenged for the vacant European (EBU) championship in Finland but was robbed of a stunning victory by the judges who, controversially, awarded the points victory to hometown fighter Robert Helenius.

It is arguably the emphatic Helenius performance that propelled him into a match-up with dominant Ukrainian, Vitali, older brother of Wladimir who twice had arranged a fight with Chisora (once in early 2011 and once in late 2010) only to pull out of both contests due to injury.
