The 31 year-old former British, Commonwealth and European Champion will make his promotional debut on December 5 at the Inselparkhalle in Hamburg, Germany.
‘’I’m excited to be working with the Sauerland’s,’’ said Chisora. ‘’This is a start of a new chapter for me. I’ve got a whole new team around me and I’m looking forward to getting back in the mix starting on December 5. I’m fit, I’m focused and ready to rock ‘n’ roll!’’
‘’We’re thrilled to welcome Dereck to the team,’’ said promoter Nisse Sauerland. ‘’The heavyweight scene is thriving at the moment and I believe he still has a big part to play in this.
‘’I’ve been impressed with his attitude. The determination and desire is still there and I expect him to be back challenging for titles in the New Year.’’
An opponent for Chisora’s fight on December 5 will be announced shortly. The Finchley-man joins a heavyweight line up at Hamuburg’s Inselparkhalle including former World title challenger Kubrat Pulev and interim WBA World Light Middleweight Champion ‘Golden’ Jack Culcay.
