Dereck Chisora signs to fight Wladimir Klitschko

Phil Jay 29/09/2010

Commonwealth and British Heavyweight Champion Derek Chisora has accepted Wladimir Klitschko’s offer to fight the WBO and IBF Champion in Germany on December 11th.

It has been speculated in the last week that Wladimir had sounded out the undefeated Brit for his tenth defence of the IBF belt and the sixth of his WBO Title.

It now seems that Chisora’s promoter Frank Warren thinks the time is right for “Del Boy” to look at options at world level and it doesn’t come any bigger a challenge at heavyweight than the younger Klitschko brother.

Wladimir has 55 wins from his 58 contests after disposing of former world champion Samuel Peter earlier this month, with the tenth round knockout of the Nigerian being his 49th KO.

Chisora 26, has 14 wins on his unblemished record and will fly to Germany hoping to emulate fellow Brit David Haye’s feat and bring the world title back from German soil.

On the same night, Amir Khan takes on Marcos Maidana in Las Vegas and Frank Warren is also planning a “huge show” of his own around that date and may now plump for the 11th.
