Talks underway for Chisora v Boytsov EBU title bout on September 21

Sauerland Promotions have confirmed to WBN that contact has been made between themselves and Frank Warren about the possibility of a clash between their new fighter Denis Boytsov and Dereck ‘Del Boy’ Chisora.

Christian Meyer, the managing director at Sauerland, is currently locked in talks to make the fight, which would see Boytsov and Chisora lock horns for the vacant European heavyweight title recently released by Kubrat Pulev.

“I am in contact with Frank Warren and Dean Powell about the bout and am confident as we have a long lasting and trustworthy relationship with them,” Meyer told World Boxing News.

“Denis Boytsov is definitely interested in the bout versus Dereck Chisora and of course it is possible to stage the fight in London on September 21.”

Undefeated Russian Boytsov holds an impressive-looking 26 stoppage wins from his 33 contests and at 27 is ready to make the move towards a world title after more than serving his apprenticeship since turning pro.

29 year-old Chisora on the other hand is back in the hunt for a second championship challenge at either Klitschko brother after his recent win over Malik Scott and will be given home advantage if negotiations can be completed with just four weeks to go.
