Chisora Returns Next Month; Could Face Joyce on Bellew-Haye II

By Elliot Foster

Dereck Chisora will fight in a 10-round contest next month before potentially taking on Joe Joyce.

The former British, Commonwealth and European heavyweight champion is set to return at the O2 Arena in London, live on Sky Sports.

Chisora, who last time out lost a majority decision in another challenge of the European belt against champion Agit Kabayel in Monte Carlo, expects to be formally added to the undercard of Dillian Whyte’s WBC Silver heavyweight title defence against Lucas Browne, on March 24, in the coming weeks.

And a win for ‘Del Boy’ could lead to him fighting Joyce, a silver medallist at the 2016 Olympics in Rio, on May 5 at the same venue, as part of the supporting cast to Tony Bellew’s heavyweight grudge rematch against David Haye.

This comes after both Joyce and Chisora were filmed backstage on Saturday at the O2 Arena by iFL TV, alongside Haye, and there was a handshake between the pair.

Chisora said: “He [David Haye] calls my manager Steve Goodwin and says 60 large [£60,000, for me to fight Joe Joyce].”

Haye responded by calling it “easy money” with Joyce a one-fight novice in the paid code since making his professional debut last October.

Joyce, for what it’s worth, is back in action at York Hall on February 16, exclusively live on Dave, when he takes on Rudolf Jozic.

“The fight interests me,” says Joyce shortly afterwards. “Yes, why not?”

Haye then asks Chisora would he fight Joyce on his next undercard, exclusively live on Sky Sports Box Office, to which he replies: “Let’s make it interesting. If the money’s right, I’ll do it.”

Respect to Joyce here - stepping up early. Chisora is well past prime, but he's levels above what most guys fight early on. It took Wilder about 30 fights to fight someone with a pulse - just saying.
