Hall of Fame promoter Frank Warren has assembled an all-star line up for his blockbuster event at Wembley Arena on Saturday 15th June, live and exclusive on The Channel of Champions BoxNation (Sky Ch. 437/Virgin Ch. 546).
Top of the bill sees an explosive Trans-Atlantic heavyweight showdown between Britain’s enigmatic Dereck Chisora and unbeaten American star Deontay Wilder in a ten-round international contest.
Londoner Chisora is relishing the fight and is promising to pull off a huge upset as he targets a second world title shot. Chisora beat Argentine Hector Alfredo Avila last month at Wembley, stopping him in the ninth round – his first fight since his loss to David Haye in July last year – and sees the dynamite punching US heavyweight hope as his route back to the top.
Wilder from Tuscaloosa in Alabama and known as the “Bronze Bomber” has blasted out all 28 of his opponents with a staggering 26 of them coming inside three rounds. The Beijing Bronze medallist ended the career of Britain’s Audley Harrison last month, blitzing the Olympic Champion inside 70 seconds in his UK debut.
