Chisora-Pulev rematch set for July 9

Heavyweights Derek Chisora (32-12, 23 KOs) and Kubrat Pulev (29-2, 14 KOs) will meet for a second time at The O2 in London on July 9 at the Barclaycard Arena in Hamburg, Germany, live worldwide on DAZN (excluding Australia, New Zealand and France). Six years ago, Pulev beat Chisora by twelve round split decision in an IBF world title eliminator.

“I’m delighted to get this fight over the line,” said Matchroom Sport Chairman Eddie Hearn. “Initially we worked on some other opponents for Derek, but this fight came out of nowhere a few days ago and I absolutely love it! I think the strapline, ‘Total Carnage’, is absolutely perfect for this fight, in terms of the build-up and in terms of the fight itself. Expect the unexpected but expect a thriller at The O2 on July 9. Both men have been longstanding fixtures of the world heavyweight division and it’s all or nothing at The O2 for both, as defeat could lead to the end of the road. Fans can expect a huge undercard and a brilliant main event for another brilliant event live on DAZN.”

  • Poor Chisora, I guess they had to this fight, since Wilder, Ortiz and Kownacki didn’t want the war with Chisora.

  • Should be a good fight, that’s if Chisora has one more good fight left in him. Never seen him in a dull fight, ok just that one fight in Canada. My pick is hoping Chisora looks good and has a good win.

  • Chisora’s a washed up bum (12 losses? C’mon), and Pulev is as dull as dish water. Hearn sounds pathetic trying to sell this as a “brilliant event”. Pulev wins another 12 round snooze fest.

  • One word regarding this nonsense, no point boxing match: Why? Nobody gives a sh**

  • Six years ago thought fought, they are “has beens” now and I cannot believe anyone will buy a ticket for it. They ought to retire!

  • This fight is not too exciting, but rather watch this than the boring Ruiz/Ardeola fight in the USA.

  • Derek Chisora Wont stop until he’s a vegetable. It’s sad. He needs to retire.

  • Oh well, two burn out boxers trying to make what ever they can to make ends meet! At least the fight is evenly matched….washout vs washout!
