Derek Chisora will be out for revenge at the O2 Arena this Saturday, when he faces Kubrat Pulev in a rematch six years in the making.

The heavyweights went head to head in Hamburg in May 2016, with Bulgarian Pulev emerging victorious via split decision. Now the pair clash in London, where Chisora will step out in front of a home crowd.

The 38-year-old has lost his last three bouts, all by decision, while Pulev, 41, went the distance in beating Jerry Forrest in May.

Despite Chisora and Pulev’s recent form, few in the O2 Arena will expect the veterans to require the judges’ scorecards here.

When is it?

Chisora vs Pulev takes place at the O2 Arena in London on Saturday 9 July.

The main card is expected to begin at 7pm BST, with the main-event ring walks likely to start at 11pm BST.

The pair headline at the O2 Arena in London this weekend and their fight tops a bill that also sees Israil Madrimov face Michel Soro in a rematch from last year, and the latest steps in the careers of Felix Cash and Fabio Wardley.


Chisora – 15/8

Draw – 16/1

Pulev – 2/5
