Dereck Chisora will face Carlos Takam in a bout that has been branded as a “last-chance saloon” for the British heavyweight by promoter Eddie Hearn.
The two are set to meet on the undercard of Dillian Whyte’s clash with Joseph Parker at the O2 Arena in London on July 28.
Chisora has lost three of his previous six bouts – to Whyte, Jubrat Pulev and Agit Kabayel – but did impressively stop Zakaria Azzouzi in March.
Hearn believes the bout – against a fighter who took Anthony Joshua 10 rounds in October – will be an important one for Chisora as it could be his last chance to fight at world level.
He said: “This is a great fight. For [Chisora], it’s a real last-chance saloon at world level and for Takam it’s a chance to push for another world title shot after a strong showing against AJ.”
