Malik Scott is Ready To Face Dereck Chisora on 7/20
by Rick Reeno
BoxingScene had been advised by Goossen Tutor Promotions that heavyweight contender Malik Scott (35-0, 12KOs) is ready and willing to face British puncher Dereck Chisora (16-4, 10KOs) on July 20th at the Wembley Arena in London.
Chisora was going to face Deontay Wilder on June 15th at the same venue, but the fight fell apart after Wilder was unable to leave the United States due to legal reasons.
After Wilder was officially out, BoxingScene was told that Goossen Tutor had been in contract with promoter Frank Warren's head matchmaker, Dean Powell, and Scott agreed to face Chisora on short notice.
On Wednesday, it was announced by Warren that Chisora's return was pushed back to the above referenced July date. Scott's promoter indicates that their fighter is still willing to travel out to the UK to face Chisora, and the new July date is not a problem for them.
