Wladimir Klitschko to face Derek Chisora on December 11th

As first reported over at ESPN by Dan Rafael, Wladimir Klitschko and Derek Chisora have agreed terms for a world heavyweight title fight in Mannheim, Germany at the SAP Arena on December 11th, with both camps having publicly confirmed the bout. As we reported when the fight was first mooted last month, Chisora is the reigning British and Commonwealth Champion and is undefeated in fourteen fights. Ordinarily he’d be nothing more than a prospect for the future, but one has to consider that that Klitschko’s options are limited by the lack of talent in the heavyweight division and his problems in making matches with leading rivals such as Alexander Povetkin and WBA Heavyweight Champion David Haye. It is likely that in the UK the fight will be broadcast on Sky Box Office as part of a triple-header with Amir Khan vs. Marcos Maidana and Chisora’s promoter Frank Warren’s 30th Anniversary supershow.
