Dereck Chisora-Matteo Modugno Set For November 30

European Heavyweight Champion Dereck Chisora gets to do an Italian job on unbeaten Italian challenger Matteo Modugno at the Copper Box Arena on Saturday 30th November.

The big-punching Finchley star has recaptured his form winning all three fights this year by stoppage and aims to stop Modugno to cap a fantastic year as he looks for a world title shot in 2014.

Chisora, 29, captured the European title last month with a devastating display to smash German Edmund Gerber inside five rounds, showing that he is back to his best and ready for a second world title opportunity.

In his way stands the 6′ 6½″ undefeated challenger from Langhirano who also packs a whack with eight stoppages in 14 fights and his last four fights have all ended by KO.  The 26-year-old is the Italian champion and holds a win over fellow countryman and former European champion Paolo Vidoz.

Fired-up Chisora can’t wait to face Modugno and has promised to destroy the young challenger.

“Modugno won’t be going the distance with me he’s getting smashed early,” Stormed Chisora.

“He’s young, hungry and undefeated and he’ll come over hear looking to take me out, but that’s not happening, I’m packing him back to Italy battered and broken,”

“This is my comeback year and there’s no way he’s going to ruin my road back to the world title.”

Chisora had been due to face Arnold Gjergjaj but terms could not be agreed.

Chisora v Modugno headlines a fantastic Copper Box Arena show, featuring British and Commonwealth Middleweight Champion Billy Joe Saunders, Bradley Skeete v Colin Lynes for the Vacant English Welterweight Championship and Frank Buglioni challenging for the Vacant WBO European Super-Middleweight Championship, all live and exclusive on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 437/Virgin Ch. 546).  Join at www.boxnation.com

[QUOTE=The Weebler I;13869639]What I don't get is why he had to defend the EBU belt so soon. He's only just won the title, couldn't he fight a North American heavyweight in the mean time?[/QUOTE] which north american fighter would be…
