Promoter Eddie Hearn is getting close to reaching an agreement for the rescheduled fight between heavyweights Oleksandr Usyk and Derek Chisora.
The fight was scheduled to take place back in May, but it was pushed back due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Hearn has been working to get all parties to agree on the revised financial figures - since the contest will now take place behind closed doors.
Usyk has been very inactive in the last few years, due to injuries and unexpected occurrences like the pandemic. Since November of 2018, he's had a single fight, nearly a year ago, when he made his heavyweight debut with a stoppage of Chazz Witherspoon.
Chisora fought four times in that same time period, with his last fight taking place in October of 2019.
While it's not finalized yet, Hearn is crossing his fingers to get the revised agreement done.
"We’re close," Hearn told Sky Sports. "I mean both guys understand that without a gate at The O2, there’s significantly less revenue driven to that show, but both guys fancy that fight.
"We’re trying to get the maths right. We’re trying to get the numbers right to get these guys over the line. I have to say, fair play to both of them, they are trying to find a way. Usyk is saying to me, Chisora is saying to me, David Haye phones me all the time: 'Let’s find a way to make this fight, it’s great for boxing.' But we are handcuffed and bound by the fact that no fans are allowed at the moment. But if I’m a betting man, I’m having a little cheeky each way punt that Usyk-Chisora gets over the line."
