Dereck Chisora (21-5) has been appointed mandatory challenger for EBU heavyweight champ Erkan Teper (15-0). The parties now have a period for private negotiations but if no deal can be reached the EBU will call for purse bids.
Teper won the vacant title with a stunning knockout over David Price in July while Chisora returned after the loss (the second) to Tyson Fury by knocking out soft touch Beqa Lobjanidze in 29 seconds.
Teper is with Z!-Promotions; Chisora is promoted by Frank Warren's Queensberrry Promotions.
