British heavyweight Fabio Wardley has backed Derek Chisora to defeat Kubrat Pulev next weekend.

The pair fight live on DAZN on July 9 at the O2 Arena in London (except Australia, New Zealand and France), and Wardley himself will fight on the undercard.

Speaking to the DAZN Boxing Show, the 27-year-old English heavyweight champion expected an entertaining main event - the second time Chisora has faced off with Pulev. 

“I think it plays out a lot more exciting than the first one,” he said. “They’re both in very different stages of their career now.

"Derek has had this monumental resurgence after the last few years, turned into War Chisora and gone crazy.

“Pulev is obviously a mad man as well but he still believes he can grab that world title or put himself in contention . Beating Chisora will keep his name being mentioned. 

“They have a lot to fight for and I do think it’s going to be a great fight. In terms of a winner I do think Derek keeps that pressure on him and gets to him late, maybe round nine.”
