Frank Warren: Chisora Will Return on 9/21, With Big Name

Britain's Dereck Chisora claimed the vacant WBO international heavyweight title with a bizarre sixth-round stoppage of previously unbeaten American Malik Scott at Wembley Arena on Saturday night.

The 29-year-old from Finchley (17-4, 11 KOs) was on the front foot from the start and had Scott (35-1-1, 12 KOs) nursing swelling under his right eye after round one.

Philadelphia-born Scott found his feet in the following couple of rounds but was on the receiving end of some solid body-shots in round four.

Then, after a closely fought fifth round, Chisora suddenly floored Scott with a right hook in the sixth. The 32-year-old appeared able to continue, but did not get up until the referee had reached nine in his count and the contest was over.

Chisora, who undertook anger-management lessons and swapped binges on Jaffa Cakes for a carefully controlled diet in preparation for tonight's bout, set his sights on a rematch with WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko immediately after his victory.

"I knew if I caught him he was going to go down, and I caught him," the Zimbabwe-born boxer said. "I want to go back to Germany and fight Vitali again."

Scott insisted he had beaten the count, saying: "I'm a professional. Dereck hit me with a good shot. I gave myself an eight-count and was up at nine."

Promoter Frank Warren plans to bring Chisora back on September 21 at Copper Box and aims to have a "big name" in store for him.

Thompson would make the most sense and be the best fight. If we could have that around the same time as Haye Fury, with Arreola Stiverne earlier this year, and good but lesser fights like Scott Chisora TT Price, this…

I can't see Price or his team wanting to get in with Chisora next after the Thompson defeat. Thompson Vs Chisora makes sense though. Thompson is well known now in the UK, hes shown he's willing to fight over in…

Put him back in the ring with Helenius, either he gets his revenge or is put in his place!
