Dillian Whyte and Dereck Chisora will finally put an end to their bitter rivalry on Saturday night at the 02.
Two years after their pulsating clash in Manchester, the British brawlers are back and leaner and meaner than when they first fought.
Although it seems they couldn’t wait to start fighting behind the scenes, both men know they can produce a convincing performance and put themselves in pole position for a world heavyweight title shot.
Unified world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua will be joined at ringside by Jarrell ‘Big Baby’ Miller and Oleksandr Usyk as they eye up the British duo as potential opponents.
The most likely fight to be announced will be Uysk versus whomever is victorious on Saturday as the Ukrainian looks to make inroads into the heavyweight division.
The undisputed cruiserweight champion cemented his reputation as the best in the world with a knockout over Tony Bellew last month and wants to test himself against the biggest and baddest fighters in the world in 2019.
Speaking to Sky Sports, promoter Eddie Hearn said: “Usyk could fight the winner or loser of [Whyte vs Chisora].
“No one really knows how good Usyk truly will be at heavyweight. We know he will be good, but can he mix it with the big boys? That is the fascination.
“Usyk won’t mess around. You won’t see him fight someone average.
“Carlos Takam is a guy that would make sense – a bit small but powerful and strong.”
Meanwhile ‘Big Baby’ is adamant he deserves a shot at ‘AJ’ in America.
The gargantuan brawler is also undefeated and believes a Chisora victory sets him up nicely to fight the Brit.
“We’re in a great position,” Miller told talkSPORT. “If Chisora can get the win over Dillian Whyte, AJ needs me more than I need him at this point.
“Who else is gonna fight for April? He hasn’t come to American soil yet, so he needs somebody to step in the ring with him.
