Boxing: Oleksandr Usyk vs Dereck Chisora

Oleksandr Usyk (17-0, 13 KOs) will battle Dereck Chisora (32-9.23 KOs) for the mandatory WBO mandate. Whoever gets the better of the other will have the chance to take on reigning WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua .

The Ukrainian recently made statements about his opponent and seemed very aware of the experience and means that distinguish him from the more experienced Chisora .

Here are the words of Oleksandr Usyk in view of the match with Dereck Chisora

“A lot of people say that Dereck is a monster, but deep down he is a kind man. I don't expect to see the good side of him in the ring, I know he wants to break me, but I am water, wind and fire all together. Dereck Chisora : I'm coming to get you! I need to prove myself against world-class heavyweights, because my goal is to become the undisputed champion and Chisora is in front of me . "

Dereck Chisora , on paper, has much more experience than the thirty-three-year-old Oleksandr and above all on the night of October 31 Dereck will fight at home: this, despite the match will take place behind closed doors, could give him a small mental advantage over his opponent. Recently, Chisora was keen to emphasize the importance of fighting at home by sending a message to Oleksandr Usyk .

Below are the words of Dereck Chisora

“ Oleksandr , I've been ready for you all year. You are on my home ground and after such a difficult year for everyone, I will give the British public the Halloween party they deserve and finally get my revenge for my boyfriend Tony Bellew ! "

Both boxers seem to want to bring each other's head home and this gives us hope that on Halloween night, when the two will climb the ropes of the ring, they will give rise to a very intense match that will not disappoint fans of the boxing.

We remind you that it will be possible to follow the match live on October 31 via DAZN but the time of the start of the event has not yet been communicated.
