O2 Arena, London - Dereck Chisora, who had been in negotiations for a possible crossroads match on the Haye vs Bellew bill with Joe Joyce warmed up here with a second round knockout over Frenchman Zakaria Azzouzi.

It was Chisora’s first fight since a disappointing performance against Agit Kaybabel for the EBU title in Monaco last November and he shed the rust in the first round before landing a huge right hook to end the fight in the second.

Azzouzi has a good record on the face of it but was a cruiserweight until he returned to the sport after a four year break last year.

Afterwards, Chisora confronted Joyce promoter and former opponent David Haye and said he’d fight Joyce for Haye’s purse for the Bellew rematch if Chisora were to win and a nominal £1 if Joyce were to win.

Whatever, I wanna see Whyte - Chisora 2 and Chisora -Miller. Chisora is funny guy, I like him.

Chisora doesn't want any hard work this late in his career. He'll keep taking these nobodies and try and get one last money fight.
