Chisora foe named

Unbeaten heavyweight Derek Chisora (11-0, 6 KOs) will now face Carl “The Fridge” Baker (9-4, 6 KOs) on February 13 at Wembley Arena in an eliminator for the British title. Baker replaces former world title challenger Danny Williams, who pulled out of a clash with Chisora last week. Baker, who beat Williams in last year’s Prizefighter tournament, is vowing to end Chisora’s unbeaten record. “It’s always been my dream to win the British title,” stated Baker, “and I’ll be a step closer once I’ve knocked out Chisora.” Chisora responded “Baker’s going to be tough, but I’m ready to knock him out and show I’m the best in Britain…I’m just glad that someone had the bottle to face me in the end. Williams claimed he was injured, while [Tyson] Fury’s got a big mouth but no guts to back it up. He’s so scared of me I’m surprised he didn’t go all the way to Australia. Full respect to Baker for agreeing to the fight, but there’s only one winner, and that’s me!”
