Dereck Chisora vs Artur Szpilka will do battle July 20


In a crossroads battle between two former world title challengers, Dereck Chisora will battle Artur Szpilka. The fight will take place on the under-card of Dillian Whyte vs Oscar Rivas.

Chisora (30-9, 21KOs) will be fighting for the second time since his devastating knockout defeat to Whyte in December of 2018. Back in April, he defeated Senad Gashi via unanimous decision under the tutelage of trainer Dave Coldwell in their first fight together. 

Szpilka (22-3, 15KOs) will be fighting for the first time since November of 2018, where he won a split decision over Mariusz Wach.

“July 20 is not going to be an easy night in the office, I know that. Szpilka is an unpredictable come-forward southpaw. I will need to be in the best physical condition of my career to win this WAR, but I’m ready.

“Remember, I’m true a fighter. I love the heat of the battlefield. I’m at my most comfortable when most fighters would want to quit. July 20 is going to be explosive, Szpilka won’t be hearing the final bell.”

“I chose this fight because we are both crazy men and it’s going to be a crazy fight.

“Chisora is a good fighter, he is bull strong and he can box well. He turns up to every fight in great condition, so I know it is going to be a tough night for me. We are both warriors who like to fight. This will be violent.”

“I’m relishing the opportunity to fight in front of all my UK fans for the first time in career.

“I know that there is a proud Polish community in London and I’m sure they will turn out in their numbers to get behind me on July 20, my country’s first heavyweight world champion.”

This fight will likely produce fireworks, as both men are defensively flawed but possess big fight-changing power. This is clearly a must-win for these men if they hope to find themselves challenging for another world title down the line.
