Dereck Chisora hasn’t fought since losing a split decision to Dillian Whyte last December. And as the heavyweight looks to move forward with his career, he’ll be doing so without the help of Sauerland Promotion.

WBN reports that after Chisora’s planned fight with Robert Helenius fell through earlier this year, Chisora and Sauerland agreed to part ways and in doing so Chisora retained Steve Goodwin to handle his managerial duties (Goodwin worked with Chisora for the Whyte bout).

According to Goodwin:

“We are now able to negotiate for Dereck with various promoters and we are very very close to being able to secure a fantastic deal for Dereck which will make him more active and raise his profile even further. Watch this space.”

Not sure what that last part means but I’ll safely assume it’s some sort of projection of confidence.

Chisora had been look for a rematch with Dillian Whyte, but Whyte just recently came Stateside to take out little-known Malcom Tann a couple of weeks ago. So I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what’s next on the horizon for Chisora.
