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.
