Heavyweight Veterans Joe Joyce and Derek Chisora Will Square Off on July 27th at the O2 Arena

Press Release:

London heavyweight titans Joe Joyce and Derek Chisora will headline at The O2 on Saturday 27 July when the Juggernaut will be confronted by War.


It is a domestic collision that appears to have been on the table for some time, with Joyce (16-2, 15 KOs), having been calling out the name of the veteran formerly known as Delboy since 2019.

Two-time world title challenger Chisora (34-13, 23) rebounded from his stoppage defeat to Tyson Fury in late 2022 with a decision victory over Gerald Washington in August of last year at The O2. Names such as Carlos Takam, Dillian Whyte, Senad Gashi, Artur Szpilka, Oleksandr Usyk, Joseph Parker and Kubrat Pulled have featured on the Finchley man’s CV since 2018.

Joyce has also mixed in strong company, recording victories over Takam, Daniel Dubois and Joseph Parker before coming off second best in back-to-back WBO Interim title fights against the Chinese giant Zhilei Zhang.

The Putney man got his name back in the win column in Birmingham back in March when he defeated Kash Ali via a 10th round KO.


Both fighters are striving to return to the buoyant top end of the world heavyweight division that is currently dominating the landscape in fight sports.
