Usyk vs Chisora to be postponed until April 11?

March 28 in London or April 11 in Manchester Derek Chisora (32-9, 23 KOs) will clash with the former undisputed cruiserweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (17-0, 13 KOs), Eddie Hearn said in an interview to Sky Sports TV.

"In fact, everything is already agreed. There is only a matter of choosing the date. We prefer March 28," the head of promotional organization Matchroom Boxing said.

There is a strong likelihood that Chisora ​​and Usyk will battle for the WBO heavyweight world title or its interim version. The Ukrainian is the official challenger for the WBO belt, and Chisora ​​is present in top fifteen rankings of the World Boxing Organization.

Usyk made his debut at the heavyweights in his last professional performance, stopping Chazz Witherspoon. Chisora ​​fought in October, when he stopped David Price.
