Dereck Chisora has been added to Saturday’s bumper bill at the O2 Arena as a replacement for Josh Warrington who is out with a virus.
The former British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion will be back in the ring against an as-yet unnamed oppoenet just a week after his last fight.
“It’s a big bill.” Chisora told Sky Sports HQ. “Anthony Joshua, Dillian Whyte, Kevin Mitchell and loads more. It’s going to be amazing for boxing.”
The finchley native has recently signed a promotional deal with Sauerland Promotions. His first outing for his new promotional team saw Chsiora pick up a fifth round stoppage victory over Peter Erdos over in Germany last Saturday.
“Everything is good for me.” Chisora said. “A new start in Germany and a new team and I’m feeling good right now.
“The Sauerland’s have arranged another fight for me at the O2. That’s what you want to do as a fighter, stay active.”
Chisora will share the bill with fellow British Heavyweights Anthony Joshua and Dillian Whyte who are headlining and battling it out for both the British and Commonwealth titles.
