Fight Talk: Oleksandr Usyk, Derek Chisora, Billy Joe Saunders, Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez, Vasyl Lomachenko

There’s an appearance too from Briton Billy Joe Saunders, who says he still wants to face Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez next year, and there’s the lowdown on the injury that appears to have played a part in Vasyl Lomachenko’s surprise defeat by Teofimo Lopez.

Usyk v Chisora – who wins?

Oleksandr Usyk and Derek Chisora go toe-to-toe on Saturday at Wembley Arena in London. And we cannot wait.

Questions about both men will be answered.

In Ukraine’s Usyk, there is a gifted fighter who dominated the cruiserweight division, winning all of the major world titles with his slick and almost flawless style.

But can he do it with the big boys of the heavyweight division? If he wins, he’ll be pushing for his WBO mandatory shot against Britain’s heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.

Chisora is a fighter enjoying a golden period in the twilight of his career, particularly since he linked up with David Haye, a former opponent and now his manager.

But having been in countless wars over his professional career, does the Londoner have much gas how much gas left in the tank? If he does, then a victory for ‘Del Boy’ surely puts him in world title contention.

Chisora says he will give Usyk “the fright of his life” on Halloween night but he goes in as a heavy underdog with the bookmakers. And most fans agree… Boxing fans on Twitter predict Usyk v Chisora. One fan says Usyk will give Derek a boxing lesson, while another predicts a knockout victory for the Ukrainian

But this is heavyweight boxing. Anything can happen.

It’s an intriguing match-up between two very different boxers, and Usyk and Chisora are just as entertaining outside of the ring – the pre and post-fight verbal exchanges are something to look forward to.
