What’s your prediction for Oleksandr Usyk vs Dereck Chisora?


Expert predictions for the Oleksandr Usyk-Dereck Chisora heavyweight showdown

Mickey Helliet
Manager and promoter

Chisora’s toughness, fitness, willingness to come forward and engage have made him a popular fighter with UK viewers but I find it very difficult to make a case for him winning, regardless of which strategy he employs.

Paul Smith
World title challenger

Being the natural heavyweight, Dereck has to make Usyk work early on, and make Usyk take more chances, to have a better chance later in the fight. Usyk is in that elite group of fighters and it’s a great fight for him to look good in, but Chisora, as always, will make it hard and will ask questions of him. Usyk points.

Chris McKenna

Chisora will always be live in the fight even if the rounds are being ticked off in Usyk’s favour. It is a mammoth challenge for the Brit who will have to impose himself on Usyk from the first bell and hope he is not at his best but I believe the Ukrainian star will survive some storms to win a unanimous points decision with a superb display.

Dave Coldwell
Former Chisora trainer

It’s a case of whether Dereck can get his feet in range. We know what Usyk’s feet have been like at cruiserweight. I’m intrigued to see how the extra weight is going to play with him. Dereck has got to bully him. He’s got to rag him about and wear him out. Usyk is the favourite but Dereck’s a very live underdog.
