Dereck Chisora vs Denis Boytsov being discussed for September 21

Scott Heavey

Dereck Chisora will be back on September 21, and could be facing Denis Boytsov for the vacant European heavyweight title.

With Kubrat Pulev vacating the European heavyweight title in order to focus on his world title goals, a fight between Dereck Chisora and Denis Boytsov is being discussed for September 21, when Chisora has a planned return in Frank Warren's debut show at Copper Box Arena in London. That night's bill will be headlined by Billy Joe Saunders vs John Ryder.

Chisora (17-4, 11 KO) is coming off of a win over Malik Scott, which was his first notable victory since a 2010 defeat of Sam Sexton, although many feel he was robbed against Robert Helenius in 2011, which led to a somewhat competitive loss to Vitali Klitshcko. Boytsov (33-0, 26 KO) has largely stagnated over his pro career, and recently was able to leave Universum for Sauerland Event, which should boost his competition.

Boytsov, a 27-year-old Russian now living in Germany, has been respected as a prospect seemingly forever now, but his best wins have come against the likes of Taras Bidenko, Dominick Guinn, and Jason Gavern. Chisora has faced the far better competition, even if he has often come up short against his better foes.
