Over this past weekend, Hall of Fame British promoter Frank Warren wrote about how he had made Deontay Wilder’s promotional team Golden Boy a big offer to come back to the UK and fight former British champ Dereck Chisora. Well, despite news breaking at the start of the week that the unbeaten “Bronze Bomber” had been released on bail for assault, the fight is now all set to go.
As reported by Boxing News, Wilder, 28-0(28) will face “Del Boy,” 16-4(10) at Wembley Arena on June 15th. Also on Warren’s show will be Frankie Gavin against Denton Vassell as welterweight and the super-middleweight showdown between Paul Smith and Tony Dodson. It will almost certainly be the heavyweight clash that grabs the most headlines.
Chisora claims he has wanted to fight Wilder “for two years,” and many fans also want to see the giant with the dynamite right hand tested. This test should come on June 15th. Chisora is his usual confident self:
“I first saw Wilder two years ago and I said to my trainer it would be a great fight for me,” Chisora said. “ He has been protected but not anymore.”
Wilder-Chisora will be scheduled for ten-rounds.
