Another press conference, another attempt to get Dereck Chisora back in the ring against an undefeated American heavyweight.

Promoter Frank Warren held a media session Thursday afternoon at Landmark London Empire Suite to discuss two major items regarding the British heavyweight - his revised next fight date and his new opponent.

The lesser of the two secrets confirmed a previous announcement that Chisora will return on July 20 at Wembley Arena in London. The presser revealed unbeaten Philly product Malik Scott as the opponent of choice for the event, which will air live on BoxNation in the United Kingdom.

Scott (35-0-1, 12KO) travels abroad for the first time in his career, though can't expect any worse treatment than was the case in his last fight - a 10-round draw versus Vyacheslav Glaskov in their February bout that many believed the American won with plenty of room to spare.

The draw verdict aside, Scott looks like an improved and rededicated fighter since returning to the ring last February following a three-year hiatus.

Chisora (16-4-1, 10KO) returned to the ring this past April, stopping Hector Avila in nine rounds for his first official win in well over a year. The wild Brit lost three straight and hadn't fought since his well-publicized knockout loss to David Haye last summer.

His showdown with Scott fills the void left behind from original plans to face Deontay Wilder. The bout was prematurely announced to headline at Wembley on June 15, but was quickly scrapped once confirmed that the American could not guarantee that his pending legal troubles would be resolved in time to allow him to travel overseas.

Shortly after the show was rescheduled, Scott threw his name into the mix as a willing opponent. Thursday's announcement grants that very wish.

Scott should win but will he get the decision in London?

[QUOTE=MrClutch85]Scott will school Chisora easy work[/QUOTE] Winning the decision in the UK is the hard part. This will be second fight in a row that Scott dominates his opponent and leaves without a win.

[QUOTE=andrewa1]Horrible match up for Chisora, what is Warren thinking? Tall, top boxer with no apparent chin problems. He can range around and pick Chisora apart. The Wilder fight would have been perfect for Chisora, I would have really liked him in that, since Wilder has shown chin issues an...

Scott wins and makes it look easy while doing so.
