Oleksandr Usyk vs Derek Chisora: Full weights and Running Order
Derek Chisora turned up for his weigh-in ceremony with Oleksandr Usyk considerably paler as the former world heavyweight title challenger scaled big.
The boxer is formerly known as ‘Del Boy,’ had his new ‘WAR’ moniker painted on his chest as Chisora got into the spirit of Halloween.
As Usyk attempted to bulk-up for his second clash in the top division, the Ukrainian only managed to hit 217 pounds.
On the other hand, Chisora weighed a whopping 255 pounds. The Briton will have a huge weight advantage when the first bell goes.
Speaking to Sky Sports after the formalities, Chisora has switched from embracing Usyk on Thursday at the final presser to wanting to knock his block off.
“Today is wartime, it’s fight time,” Chisora told Adam Smith, Sky Sports Head of Boxing.
“So I am going to war. Don’t miss it,” he added.

On what fans can expect on Sky Sports Box Office, Chisora stated: “You’ll be very surprised at what is going to happen in that ring.
“Either we knock him out, or he’s going to quit on his stool. That’s what we are going for.”
Usyk, obviously, is ‘very feel’ ahead of what is a defining night for his run in the sport’s biggest and most lucrative weight class.
