Derek Chisora is a now part of 258 MGT, Anthony Joshua’s management company.
The veteran heavyweight, desperately seeking a rematch with Joseph Parker following a decision loss to the New Zealand fighter in May, will now have his career guided by the group responsible for Joshua, Lawrence Okolie and Joshua Buatsi after recently splitting with David Haye.
Chisora, a staple of the British heavyweight scene for the best part of the last decade, is showing no signs of slowing down despite a lengthy career that has saw him share the ring with Vitali Klitschko, Haye and Tyson Fury.

Freddie Cunningham, Managing Director at 258, is delighted to have Chisora onboard.

"He feels the 258 team can add to what he is doing. We are excited to get going and looking to negotiate and build up to big fights before the year is out."
