Derek Chisora to face Oleksandr Usyk in heavyweight clash on October 31


Eddie Hearn: “It’s an absolute firecracker and a fight that’s so important to the heavyweight division over the next few months”

Ukrainian star Oleksandr Usyk will finally face Derek Chisora in their rescheduled heavyweight fight on October 31, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

Usyk was originally set to collide with Chisora on May 23, but the fight was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic and they will instead share the ring next month, with a venue to be confirmed soon.

After becoming undisputed cruiserweight king, Usyk is targeting all the world heavyweight belts and victory will keep him on course for a WBO mandatory title fight with unified champion Anthony Joshua.
