I don't doubt Chisora isn't afraid. Dude fought just about everyone, but I don't think this is a good fight for him to take.
It’s a great fight for him to take. It’s the only logical one in fact. He wants a title shot, so he beats Uysk he gets one.

Whether he wins is another story, but it’s a good fight to take.

Hard to get excited about, I really like Usyk but his heavyweight debut was dull, hope Derek makes it entertaining, Whether that's him getting a KO or him getting knocked out i don't mind.

I think Helenius is a mandatory too. He could've fought Helenius/Kownacki winner (at the time).

Too much gets made of Del's fights where he doesn't bother to mentally show up

If we get a really up for it Del Vs the same Usyk from the Witherspoon fight then we have a very real fight on our hands.

Usyk offers some big advantages though.

They can do it on uk PPV.

He's a matchroom fighter, so it should be easier to make.

The WBO is due to be called first

Chisora has a decent WBO ranking himself. ( I think).

And even if it goes ahead, even by Hearn's standards this is a cheeky PPV. A non-title bout between one bloke who many casuals won't have heard of and another who these days doesn't win the big ones. I'd absolutely watch on regular Sky but I'm not paying extra for this. Chisora will hopefully turn up engaged and make it fun for the first half but then I fear Usyk just times him, makes him look ordinary and stops him. Decent win for Usyk at this point, with injuries and so new to the division (and so relatively unknown) but feels like a blatant cash grab by Hearn and pretty much just a payday for Chisora. He's on quite the run!
