“You know what you are going to get with Del Boy, plenty of drama and a load of heart.”

“I’m pleased to welcome Dereck to the team and look forward to being involved in some big fights next year…”

Matchroom have announced their latest signing in heavyweight Dereck Chisora (26-7).

The Londoner will make his promotional debut on September 30 in Liverpool on the undercard of Stuart Hall vs. Paul Butler. He will then take on Agit Kayabel for the European Title on November 4th and look to fight Dillian Whyte at the beginning of 2018.

Chisora has had an up and down career and many thought it was over when he lost to Tyson Fury for the second time in 2014. Since then he has beat a few journeyman and come up on the wrong side of controversial decisions to Kubrat Pulev and Dillian Whyte.

“I’m pleased to welcome Dereck to the team and look forward to being involved in some big fights with him over the next year,” said promoter Eddie Hearn. “You know what you are going to get with Del Boy, plenty of drama and a load of heart—he will return to action in Liverpool and challenge for the European title on November. We will work towards a Whyte rematch for early next year, it’s a fight that I think boxing needs to see again.”
