Deontay Wilder news: British veteran hopeful of making the fight happen

Chisora has fought 44 times as a professional, including fights against Tyson Fury, David Haye, Dillian Whyte and Vitali Klitschko.

Derek Chisora believes he has the beating of former heavyweight world champion Deontay Wilder should they meet inside the ring.

Despite calls for him to retire from the sport following his most recent defeat to Joseph Parker, Chisora plans on continuing in the sport.

The British veteran of 44 fights has been linked with a showdown against Wilder - a fighter regarded as the biggest hitting heavyweight since Mike Tyson.

Chisora has shared the ring with some of the biggest names of the modern era, including David Haye, Tyson Fury and Vitali Klitschko and he is open to adding Wilder to his resume.

Wilder is yet to confirm his next move after a second successive loss to Fury for the WBC title although Eddie Hearn is hopeful of making a fight between the "Bronze Bomber" and "War" Chisora.

"I think we've both come out of two losses, back-to-back," Chisora said. "I think why not? People are saying 'why does he want to do that for?' They're not me. People are not built like me.

"The thing is, I will be honest with you, I want to fight everybody. When I hang it up I can say I fought everybody in my era and enjoyed it. I loved it, that's what I want to do.

"I don't want to duck and dive and suddenly at the end of my career saying 'I wish I'd fought this guy'. No, I want to fight everybody right now."

When asked if he could beat Wilder, Chisora said: "I don't know, but yes I want to go for it 100 per cent. Yes, I will beat him."

"I always say this, my world title for me is people recognising me on the streets," he added. "That's my world title - that's all I love.

"I worked hard to get to the top. I used to box in York Hall. Now 20,000 people watching me, I don't want to give that easy.

"I don't really care about the title which comes with it. Your taxi man, bin man, general cleaner, as long as I walk in there and recognise me and say 'that was a great fight', that's my world title."
