Whyte v Chisora: WBC eliminator for future Wilder shot

Matchroom 01/11/2016

There’s a huge card in support of the Anthony Joshua v Eric Molina fight as Dillian Whyte defends his British Heavyweight title against bitter London rival Dereck Chisora in an official eliminator for the WBC title.

Whyte makes the second defence of his strap after seeing off fellow Brixton man Ian Lewison in Glasgow last month, while former World title challenger Chisora can get his hands on the Lord Lonsdale belt for the second time.

WBN Note: The winner could face champion Deontay Wilder after mandatory duties are completed against the winner of Alexander Povetkin v Bermane Stiverne.

“The Heavyweight division has been turned on its head in the last few months and while many are standing still waiting, I’m delighted to get this huge card up and running in Manchester,” said promoter Eddie Hearn.

“The card is one of the strongest we have produced, supported by a huge all-British Heavyweight grudge match between Dillian Whyte and Dereck Chisora which will be an official eliminator for the WBC World title.”
