Dereck Chisora and Oleksandr Usyk are hunting each other

Usyk has been calling out Chisora lately and appears ready for the fight. Meanwhile, BT Sport boxing has newly posted a video, where the Ukrainian is seen calling out Chisora.

While enjoying a run on the beach, Usyk diverted his attention towards Chisora and said, “Dereck, Dereck, Where are you Dereck? I watch you run.” It was quite a hilarious moment as Usyk didn’t take it on a personal level. Instead, he just added some humor to entertain the fans.

Chisora had a smirk on his face the entire time. It is no surprise that the heavyweight buildup has been entertaining till now. However, the matchup appears equally looming inside the squared circle.

The winner of the fight will be the new WBO mandatory title challenger, earning a fight with Anthony Joshua. That said, ‘AJ’ needs to get past Kubrat Pulev to keep the titles. If not, Pulev will be the new top-runner in front of Usyk and Chisora.
