Brash British heavyweight Dereck Chisora says he’s ready destroy when he makes his big comeback against Argentinian Hector Alfredo Avila on Saturday 20th April at Wembley Arena.
The Former British and Commonwealth Champ and former WBC World Title Challenger will feature in a 10-round contest alongside Nathan Cleverly, Paul Butler, Liam Walsh and Scott Harrison.
The hard-hitting Londoner has been out of the ring since July, 2012 when he was stopped in the fifth round by rival David Haye in a thriller at West Ham United’s Boleyn Ground at Upton Park in London.
Chisora fought WBC Champion Vitali Klitshko last February losing via 12 round decision
Chisora’s British Boxing Board of Control license was reissued last month and the Finchley puncher is now desperate to fight his way back into world title contention as soon as possible.
“I’m back in business and I’m on the road back to the world title,” said Chisora.
“I’m looking to destroy Avila first at Wembley Arena and then face one of the other so called rivals next, if it’s David Price then great, I know he wouldn’t be able to stand up to my power and he’d be a good step in the right direction for me,”
“It’s exciting to be back in the ring after almost a year out. I’ve been working hard in the gym with my trainer Don Charles, making changes and improving, and we’re both tunnel focused on achieving the goal of winning the world heavyweight title,”
“I’m still only 29 and I’ve had only 19 fights, aside from Haye, I took Tyson Fury the distance despite not being in the best shape, I was robbed against Robert Helenius for the European title in his backyard and then took Klitschko the distance straight after,”
“The world title is my goal and I will achieve it.”
