Dereck Chisora Heading To Promoter Eddie Hearn?

By Edward Chaykovsky

Heavyweight Dereck Chisora may become the next boxer to jump ship from Frank Warren to promotional rival Eddie Hearn. Chisora (15-4, 9KOs) returns on Saturday night at Wembley Arena in London, facing Hector Avila in a tuneup fight. At today's weigh-in, Chisora told several reporters that he was upset with Warren and also revealed that he was working with the veteran promoter on a fight by fight basis.

Hearn's company, Matchroom, announced earlier today that he plans to reveal a "major signing" on Tuesday in London, which has led to speculation that Chisora could be jumping over. If the rumors are true, then Chisora would join Tony Bellew, Kell Brook, Ricky Burns and George Groves on the growing list of fighters who were once promoted by Warren and are now under Hearn's banner.

I doubt Hearn is interested in Chisora. He adds nothing to the MatchRoom stable. One fighter who is on his way to MR is Anthony Joshua.

A lot of guys have been right to leave Warren behind but I think he's the one best for Chisora right now. He'll get a title shot.

[QUOTE=CraigM;13270290]Pretty much agree with everyone else... Even on the side of this Chisora is now one of Franks top fighters, why would you sacrifice that to be just another fighter in an already packed full of talent roster.[/QUOTE] Wasn't there…

Frank has said he is going to be signing up a couple of fighters in the next two weeks
